Well, if you were one of those many unfortunate people like myself who can’t attend Jay-Z’sMade In America Festival your in luck. Hov has teamed up with Hollywood producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer to produce the documentary style film. The file will show every aspect of the festival through the eyes of Jay-Z.
"The festival showcases 20 pre-eminent artists that speak to the new generation,” Basker tells the NY Post. “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.” He added, “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".
I really can’t wait for this! Seeing Jay-Z myself live 3 times he puts on a great show. Plus the festival will feature performance sets from Drake, Odd Future, MayBach Music Group, and Run DMC to name a few.
