Saturday evening marked the start of Jay-Z's highly anticipated "Made in America" Music Festival in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The first day of the event featured names like Maybach Music Group, D'Angelo and Janelle Monae, before concluding with a star-studded Jay-Z set during the evening.
Jay ran through a medley of his greatest hits, which included surprise appearances by Memphis Bleek, State Property and Swizz Beatz. Then he introduced running mate Kanye West and the G.O.O.D. Music Crew as a bonus act for fans in Philly.
As you may have expected, the Nike Air Yeezy 2 was the popular sneaker choice among Jay and friends, but Swizz, Freeway, Common and 2 Chainz sprinkled in some fresh selections. Check out the "Made in America" Day 1 footwear below.
