You lucky lucky Philly cheese-steaks you!

We'll take multiple servings, with extra musical CHEDDAR please!

Jay-Z's Made in America Philadelphian music festival just got a major injection of magic-sauce with the additions of legedary hip-hop group Run DMC, and rap's current golden boy Drake!

Jay has also added Nicky Romero and Jill Scott, and has spanned genres to include Swedish House Mafia DJ Alesso, bluesy string-picker Gary Clark Jr, and Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell!

This redonkulous two-day fest featuring Pearl Jam and Jay himself, ignites Sept 1st… and there MAY be a minuscule chance that our PRESIDENT Barack Obama might rock out with his cockerel out.

Holy guacamole.

We pledge allegiance to The United States of Made in America, one nation under Jay-Z!
