Made In America Fest: Jay-Z Joins Pearl Jam For Rock Rendition Of ’99 Problems’ [Video]
The Made in America Fest saw plenty of Jay-Z, with the rapper delivering a set that featured appearances from Kanye West, G.O.O.D. Music, and even an announcement from President Obama — but Jay-Z may have saved the best for last.
As the Made in America fest drew to a close, Jay-Z joined Pearl Jam on stage in the final performance of the weekend, playing a rock-heavy version of his song “99 Problems,” MTV News reported.
The Made In America fest also featured a performance from Drake, who played crowd favorite “Crew Love” and a few bars of “Underground Kings” before being joined on stage by 2 Chainz.
The entire festival had an eclectic lineup, with many genres of music represented. Some of the other performers included Odd Future, Skrillex, and Jay Electronica. Even Run-DMC reunited for a performance, Pitchfork noted.
A light rain the fell throughout the Made in America fest didn’t do too much to hurt attendance, though MTV News noted that many of the hip-hop fans filtered away after Drake’s performance finished, so they missed the show-stopping collaboration between Jay-Z and Pearl Jam.
Fans who want to see more of the Made in America fest could be in luck. Organizers have said there is a good chance of the festival returning next year, and fans can also look forward to a Made in America documentary directed by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer.
