Drake, Run-D.M.C., and Jill Scott Added to Jay-Z’s ‘Made in America’ Festival

Jay-Z and Drake

Drake, Run-D.M.C., and Jill Scott will all descend upon Philadelphia for Jay-Z’s “Made in America” festival. The artists are the latest to be added to the bill for the two-day concert extravaganza on Sept. 1 and 2.

Before he heads to the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, five-time nominee Drake will take the stage at Ben Frankin Parkway for Sunday’s show.

The concert also marks the return of the legendary kings of rock, Run-D.M.C., and Philly’s own Jill Scott, along with performances from Chris Cornell, Gary Clark Jr., and The Hives.

Previously announced performers include D’Angelo, Rick Ross, Wale, Meek Mill, Odd Future, and Rita Ora. Jay-Z will headline Saturday and Pearl Jam will close out the festival on Sunday.

Single-day tickets go on sale this Friday via Ticketmaster.

    How do you not put J-Cole, your “own” artist, on the bill? Jay never ceases to amaze me. Did the same thing to Joe Budden when he was president of Def Jam. Scared of being out-shined by his underlings (protege), smh.

    @mrsotw, Actually dumb-ass, he’s not set to perform until 9/2/12 @ Rock the Bells! Jay and his minions tear it down on 9/1/12! Furthermore, the show is in Holmdel, NJ which is a hop-skip-and-a jump away. Get Jay’s nuts from your mouth and butt then maybe oxygen can reach your brain to formulate some “actual” insight!

    Drake deserves to perform at Made In America Festival this year. Drake is the Number 1 platinum-selling rapper in the country right now, and Take Care was a pretty good album. I am glad to see the legendary Run-D.M.C. perform at Made In America Festival this year as well. Frank Ocean and Odd Future are going to tear the house down as well.
