Jay Z Closes Made In America Festival With A Few Friends
Whilst Pearl Jam were performing the last gig, closing out the two day festival with a two hour, 25 song set, they were joined on stage by the man who created the whole thing. On jumped Jay-Z who treated crowds to a rock version of his smash hit. Drake had previously summoned 2 Chainz to stage before the rock-rap incarnation of 99 problems. There was a political edge to Pearl Jam's gig; during their song 'Unemployable,' the veteran rockers bemoaned the life of a hard working American in light of job cuts. Vedder told the crowd, "I want to see more things made in America," which won him a round of rapturous applause.
The festival, the brainchild of Shawn Corey Carter, has enjoyed a flurry of performances from musical legends. Add to Pearl Jam a set by DMC">Run Dmc - the first in ten years - Kanye West, and the President of The United States, and you've got yourself one of the most talked about musical events of the year. After wowing a nostalgic crowd, Run Dmc struck a serious note, "After his assassination ... we put a silence on the group," Run said, explaining to the crowd the intricacies behind the bands break up following the death of Jam Master Jay.
