Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Gary Clark Jr., Highlight Day One Of Made In America

Day one of Jay-Z’s Made In America Festival seemed like a huge success despite overcrowding, and long lines for bathrooms, beer and pretty much anything else. On the plus side, it was probably the most racially integrated summer festival yet, and therefore was more of a microcosm of America than most festivals. It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Jay-Z pulling such a diverse audience, or creating such a diverse bill.
