Returning to its one city format after going bi-coastal last year, Made In America proves once again that Jay-Z has the ability to bring together a world class group of musicians to the city of brotherly love.
This year’s lineup showcased Beyonce who lit up the stage as usual, this time sporting a James Harden jersey, while performing hits on hits on hits. The newly 34-year-old stunner kept appearances to a minimum as she incorporated speeches from Maya Angelou and UFC fighter Rhonda Rousey instead.
The madness continued with The Weeknd who is currently tearing up the Billboard charts with his album “Beauty Behind The Madness.” The Toronto crooner rattled through his list of chart-toppers with fireworks to back him up while he performed “The Hills.”
The Future Hive left off where the Bey Hive began as the “DS2” rapper hit the stage. The crowd went wild for Future who has established himself as one of the most sought after rappers of 2015. But the crowd didn’t just go wild for hearing hits like “Where Ya At” and “Sh!t,” Future had the Freebandz chants rolling as he announced there would be another new album by the end of the year.
We couldn’t recap this historic event in Philly without mentioning the notorious Meek Mill. It’s been an interesting few months for the “Dreams Worth More Than Money” rapper as drama has overshadowed his album release. Putting it all behind him Meek brought out his girl Nicki Minaj who has been by his side through all the Drake-related media. Things got a bit weird as Meek stopped his DJ mid-set to tell him to stop playing Future records. When hounded on social media Meek clapped back with the following photo below. We’re already looking forward to Made In America 2016 which is sure to feature the hottest the game has to offer.
