Jay Z Surprise Performance A Possibility At Made In America

Budweiser's brand manager hints at the possibility of a "cameo appearance" from Jay Z at the Made In America Festival.

When the lineup for the second annual Made In America Festival was announced months ago, the roster noticeably lacked an appearance from Jay Z, an artist who played a vital role in the festivals debut last year and also served as headliner.

Although Beyonce and rockers Nine Inch Nails are currently touted as the headliners for this year’s Made In America Festival, a cameo from Jay Z is in fact a possibility.

According to Budweiser brand manager Mike Thompson, he isn’t counting out a surprise appearance from the Magna Carta Holy Grail rapper.

“You never know. I’m sure he’ll be here to support his wife and who knows, maybe he’ll treat us all to a cameo appearance during one of the performances,” said Thompson, while speaking exclusively with Billboard.com. “It would be cool to see him up there with Trent Reznor, similar to what he did with Pearl Jam last year. Those types of collaborations are always really fun.”

In addition to headlining performances from Beyonce and Nine Inch Nails, the Budweiser-sponsored event will also include performances from a number of Hip Hop acts including Drake, Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and West Coast rap quartet Black Hippy.

In preparation for the festival, all four members of Black Hippy (Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, ScHoolboy Q, and Jay Rock), appear in the newly-released On The Road Budweiser Made In America documentary.

The 2013 Made In America Festival will take place in Philadelphia from August 31 to September 1.

    A crucial part of surprises is usually not announcing them ahead of time..just saying. K so I'm not a gangster rapper or a trap rapper, I'm not any kind of rapper. I rap about whatever the fuck I feel like. If I don't sound like what you want, go fucking find what you want. but hey any time given to my music is appreciated so thanks if you give a listen. Maybe you'll be part of the reason I take off, or decide to quit whatever works https://soundcloud.com/theanchor/brain-work-pt-1 flyqtheanchor@gmail.com if you'd like to collab, or inquire about writing services
