Jay-Z Enlists Ron Howard & Brian Grazer For "Made In America" Documentary

Jay-Z will produce the film alongside Steve Stoute.

To document his upcoming "Made in America" festival, Jay-Z has enlisted Oscar-winning duo Ron Howard and Brian Grazer to direct a film about the making of the event.

According to NY Post, Hov plans on having the pair capture artists including Rick Ross, Drake, Skrillex, Run-DMC and Pearl Jam in action during the fest, taking place on September 1st and 2nd. Steve Stoute is also set to produce the film alongside Jay.

“The festival showcases 20 pre-eminent artists that speak to the new generation. I am producing the film with Steve Stoute and Jay. Ron is directing. It is going to be born through Jay-Z’s perspective... how he puts the event together,” said Grazer. “Jay stayed the king for a very long time... I can’t even begin to explain how he is capable of remaining relevant. He is a phenom, like a musical Michael Jordan.”

    Dont know why u guys always hate on 50 cent.So what if his last album didnt measure up to his previous 3 albums?500k insnt bad. He makes money by other means,u dont and he is a upright and model law abiding citizen, pls check ur facts. Curtis Jackson aka 50 Cent got busted for minor DUI IN 2000.Becos of his wrap sheet full of minor offences he was offered a deal to snitch or face jail.Curtis Jackson beig an upright citizen and wanting to walk a straight path offered some information to the feds but they wanted more.Curtis further offered to gather more information from his neighbourhood drug n crime activities and report back to the feds.Since meeting up with the feds was risky, Curtis Jackson being a smart guy opted to put his gathered information or "Snitching" in a record called "Ghetto Koran".A good number of cold cases in New York has been solved based on this Affidavit ..sorry..based on that single. Now south jamaica queens is becoming safe. 50 cent can however not go back there bcos of threat to his life. What a selfless move to make his local neighbourhood safe

      Blueprint 3 wasn't a bad album. maybe it had a more pop-oriented sound that put off a lot of fans but in and of itself i thought it was a pretty decent album.

      I think alot of people have criticized Jay for not adding anything new to music and having very little substance in his art recently. I've noticed in the past 18 months he's desperately try to be seen as that guy who's still musically gifted. Jay asked Kayne to do a double album since Kanye did complete his greatest album MBDTF and he's probably not going to top that. Jay on the other hand just finished making the worst trilogy ever (blueprint classic, the gift and the curse full of fillers and blueprint 3 is trash and should be considered a pop album. Some of the choruses were cringe-worthy). Doing Watch The Throne (majority of the album was good but im pretty sure Otis Redding will be spinning in his grave if he heard Otis), music festivals and working with Ron Howard are desperate attempts to try and persuade people that his still doing this for the art. I dont think he should of stayed retired because he's still capable of making good albums (AG and Kindgom Come gets alot of hate for an album which isnt that bad.) But stop making trash music thats radio friendly and get creative.
