As an unofficial finale to the summer concert season, you couldn’t do much better than Made in America. Jay-Z’s festival, which went down this past weekend in Philadelphia, included a pre-recorded introduction from President Barack Obama and sets from G.O.O.D. Music, D’Angelo, Run DMC, Dirty Projectors, Janelle Monáe, Odd Future, Jay Electronia, and Pearl Jam, who Hova joined on-stage to perform “99 Problems” with.
Check out footage from the festival below to decide whether you made the right choice by staying inside and making your own defrosted lobster rolls this Labor Day weekend, or if you should have seen Jay-Z and Kanye West blaze through “N*ggas in Paris” in Philly. HINT: it’s the latter.
