Jay-Z Debuts Commercial for Made in America Festival

Jay-Z has been everywhere lately. From moving the Nets to Brooklyn like he said he would in 2007 to having a Croatian baby, putting on a festival in Philadelphia, appearing in a Duracell commercial and endorsing a new cognac, touring and putting out huge singles, Jay-Z stays on your computer and TV screens.

So what's Jiggaman up to today? If you look up, you'll see the brand new commercial that he stars in to promote his Made in America Festival in Philadelphia on September 1 and 2. The festival has a crazy lineup too: Jay-Z (of course), Pearl JamSkrillexMiike SnowAfrojackCalvin HarrisOdd Future,D'Angelo, Maybach Music (feat. Rick RossWale & Meek Mill), Passion Pit,SantigoldDirty Projectors, X, Janelle Monae, Prince Royce, Rita Ora, Savoy (DJ set), and The Knocks.

Made in America, a joint venture with Budweiser (which was actually bought by a Belgian company), looks pretty sweet in the commercial. Jay-Z delivers a spoken word riff about conquering lines between genres and it makes the festival seem like a pretty epic event.

So watch the commercial and let us know what you think of it in the comments!
