Pullin’ ‘Tubes: The Made In America Fest

This past weekend the Jay-Z curated Made In America music festival took place on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art featuring an eclectic lineup that ranged from Pearl Jam to Janelle Monae to the newly reunited Run DMC to Hova himself. Famed director Ron “Richie Cunningham” Howard filmed the event for a forthcoming documentary, but we don’t need to wait for highlights from the fest as they’ve been uploaded through the MadeInAmericaFest YouTube channel.

Let’s start off with Monae’s cover of I Want You Back (Jackson 5)…
