Jay-Z Teams up With Ron Howard For A “Made in America” Documentary

Earlier this year, Jay Z announced that he would be teaming up with Live Nation, Budweiser and Ticketmaster to create a music festival like no other.  This festival we now know as “Made in America” and we also know there are some great music festivals so out doing them all is a tall order.

Hov has been putting in a lot of work in order to make this event a success.  We’ve seen him in Phili promoting the event and we hear that the lineup of artists is just sick, spreading across all genre of music: Drake, Janelle Monae, Pearl Jam, Alesso, Run-DMC, Rick Ross, Odd Future and more.  The event is to span over two days, September 1st and 2nd.

If you were wondering just how much work it takes to pull something like this together, you will soon find out.  Ron Howard is on board to direct the documentary.  Howard has somehow infused himself into the hip hop game.  Do you remember his cameo in the “Blame It” video with Forest Whitaker and Samuel L. Jackson?  He is now and honorary brother!

The documentary will be a journal of Jay-Z’s life while pulling together this event.  Howard’s business partner and producer Brian Grazer says,

“The festival showcases 20 pre-eminent artists that speak to the new generation. I am producing the film with Steve Stoute and Jay. Ron is directing. It is going to be born through Jay-Z’s perspective, how he puts the event together.”

The documentary will have interviews with artists and will feature some full length performances as well.  It appears Jay Z has put together an A-team, let’s see if he can deliver to all the hype.  Made in America is only less than 4 weeks away!
