“The festival showcases 20 pre-eminent artists that speak to the new generation. I am producing the film with Steve Stoute and Jay. Ron [Howard] is directing. It is going to be born through Jay-Z’s perspective . . . how he puts the event together,” Brian Glaser told The New York Post. “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.”

A number of popular acts, like Drake, Rick Ross, Odd Future and Pearl Jam are performing, but the highlight of the Made In America Festival is the highly anticipated reunion of Hip-Hop legends, Run-DMC, who will give their first performance in over 10 years, as the event.
