Watch Jay Z’s ‘Made In America’ Documentary

In 2012, Jay Z curated the inaugural Made In America music festival in Philadelphia during the Labor Day Weekend. The two-day extravaganza was also being film into a documentary. A year later, the doc has finally premiered on Showtime.

The 90-minute documentary, directed by legendary filmmaker Ron Howard, takes viewers behind the scenes of how the whole ‘Made In America’ festival shined in the City of Brotherly Love. From the production team, the fans and the artists themselves, all talk about the importance of bringing such a diverse concert to Philly.

“Made in America is a bigger idea than just a concert,” says Jay Z about the festival. “After these great tragedies, creativity is born, and I feel we are in that period right now, where people are pulling themselves up by the bootstrap and saying, ‘Okay, I’m going to go out and do this, and we’re gonna do it our way.’”

In an emotional scene, we see Jay returned to his old “stash spot” — his apartment at 560 State Street in Brooklyn, N.Y. The rap mogul looks across the street to the Barclays Center and reflects on his earlier beginnings as a street hustler to what he’s become now. He may have been to many places, but he’s Brooklyn’s own.

The documentary also boasts interviews and performances from Run-DMC, D’Angelo, Rita Ora, Kanye West, Jill Scott, Tyler, the Creator, Janelle Monae and Jay Z, himself.
