When Jay-Z announced that he was curating and performing for the Made In America two-day festival, we knew it was going to be BIG – but we didn’t think it would be THIS big.
The music mogul sat down with Rolling Stone and shared a few details on his artist line up – including a potential guest appearance by the big homie Barack Obama.
‘I’m looking for artists that embody the American spirit,” Jay said during his sit-down with the iconic magazine. “Pull yourself up by the bootstraps,” the whole, “You can make it anywhere” sort of mentality.”
Based on that criteria, Barack would be the perfect candidate!
“I’m gonna give him a call and I’m gonna try to get him to perform – do a little rendition of Al Green,” said Jay. “But I doubt it. I think that opens up the political season. He’ll be so far into helping the world that he probably won’t have time, but I’m absolutely going to ask him.”
Considering the fact that the two-day festival is so close to the election period, chances are Barack probably won’t be able to make it out.
However we should still keep our fingers crossed. Because in Jay’s world, “difficult takes a day, impossible takes a week.”
