For the simple fact that rapper Jay – Z brought so much attention to my home city of Philadelphia, PA this past weekend for his ‘Made in America’ music festival he is deemed this week’s Monday Morning Eye Candy.
On September 1- 2, Jay-Z headlined a musical festival unlike no other featuring current and past music icons from a variety of genres. Taking over the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philly a variety of musicians took to the stage over the course of the two day festival that was being compared to Coachella or Laffapalooza. Guests of the festival included: Drake, Wale, Jill Scott, Calvin Harris, Run DMC, Common, Kanye West, Pearl Jam, Janelle Monae, Rita Ora and the list could go on and on. Literally a who’s who of the music industry was at the festival in some way, shape or form and for that jigga, you get major points.
I heard nothing but great things about the festival all weekend. Many are hoping Jay – Z does the festival every year. With such major acts as this year how could you possibly top it? Well, here’s to hoping for a ‘Made in America’ 2013! *fingers crossed*
