Jay-Z To Curate, Star In Two-Day "Made In America" Art Festival In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Jay-Z will take over the City of Brotherly Love for the first Budweiser Made in America music festival.

After Roc Nation issued a press release stating that Jay-Z will make an announcement with the mayor of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania tomorrow, New York Times' Arts Beat blog has broken the news ahead of schedule.

Hov is expected to announce that he will both curate and star in the first Budweiser Made in America music festival, a two-day event that will feature at least 28 musical acts to Fairmount Park on September 1st and 2nd. The festival will  be produced by Live Nation and feature an eclectic lineup of "rock, hip-hop, R&B, Latin and dance" musicians.

Portions from ticket sales will benefit local non-profits through United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey. Tickets will be available on ticketmaster.com and livenation.com on May 23rd.

This also solves the puzzle of a video titled "Made in America" that was released on Life+Times' YouTube account on May 11th. Watch the teaser for the festival below.

      Your point? Why are you concerned with the inner working of what another person does. It in no way shape or form affects you or your life. Let them live and do what they like. It is not your place or anyone elses to judge.

      @Anonmymous #2 Nigga wtf are you talking about? You getting pissed for what reason again? You Jigga duck sickin niggas kill me, man. Act like Jigga is y'all moms AND pops on here. I know that ETK asshole f'ed up and said dick riding is cool depending on who it is but y'all take that dumb line and push it way past the margin. And yeah...Jigga doesn't own shit to be considered relevant. He was a front man/coon face fool used to get that team there and screw a whole lot of his own people in Brooklyn out of their homes and everything else. Do the knowledge before you get all bent out of shape, you bitch ass nigga. Sucka nigga.
