Jay Electronica performing "Exhibit A"/"Exhibit C" live at Made In America, Labor Day 2012

OK, summer’s over. All we have left is sand in our swimsuits and these videos of Jay-Z and co’s epic Made In America festival, which went down yesterday in Philly while Brooknam was going Carib-crazy. Talk about Okayplayer fantasy concerts, the festival delivered D’Angelo, Run-DMC, Common (in the G.O.O.D. Music set) Santigold, Jill Scott and Janelle Monáe to a single venue on the same day and then premiered unheard jams from Gary Clark, Jr and then said (just as a side-note): Jay Electronica is real (see below–perhaps the most musical phrase of the whole show for Okayplay-ears: “The album will be out soon, we mixing now. Single featuring Chris Brown.”). Proceed and continue to watch the show below and after the jump.

  • I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more
    pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire
    out a developer to create your theme? Outstanding work!
