The 2013 “Made In America” festival, curated by JAY Z is underway this weekend at Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway. A$AP Rocky served as the first rap act to kick off Day 1 on Saturday afternoon. Arriving a bit late, which shortened his set, A$AP Rocky wasted no time rocking the festival’s main stage with cuts off his LongLiveA$AP debut album during his 15-minute set.

Scottish singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé followed Rocky’s set with an incredible 40-minute set. Backed by a 6-piece band, the songstress had the crowd in tune from beginning to end with singles and cuts from her No. 1 debut album Our Version of Events.

Over at the Liberty stage, 2 Chainz brought his ratchet raps and gave the most memorable performance of the afternoon. With Jay-Z watching on the side, the ATLien had the crowd non-stop jumping to street anthems and features such as “Mercy,” “Crack,” “All Me,” “Beez in the Trap,” “U.E.O.N.O.,” and “Bandz a Make Her Dance.” Along with bringing the Pharrell-produced “Feds Watching,” Tity Boi performed his new single “NetFlix” for the first-time live.

Fans can livestream this year’s two-day concert weekend here as Beyoncé will close out Day 1 at 10:20 p.m. EST.

Just days after filming their “Give It All to Me” video in NYC, Mavado brought his latest collaboration to life at Hot 97’s “On Da Reggae Tip 2013″ concert on Friday night.

In front of a sold-out crowd at the Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan, Jamaica and Trinidad linked up once again as Nicki Minaj joined The Gully God on stage. Wearing a skin-tight purple Alexander McQueen dress, Minaj had the cameras flashing as the two performed their new single for the first-time live.

It seems like Miley Cyrus has now become the posterchild for twerking because now you have Rap songs being named after ass-shaking hobby. DJ Holiday rounded up Waka Flocka and Wiz Khalifa for his new single to gather up the ratchets for the weekend and give them something to clap that backside to for the holiday.

Booty shaking contests this Labor Day weekend now have an anthem.

The Hall Of Fame campaign continues, with Big Sean’s next visual treatment, for the street single “10 2 10″ off the album. Much like Mac Miller’s “Gees,” directors Mike Waxx and Mike Carson give this video some color, as Big Sean screams out the hook through a horn speaker.

drake

Before the long weekend officially begins, our friends at Billboard dropped off their full Drake cover story. And, as you guessed it, they did ask Drizzy about Kendrick’s “Control” verse. We know Cole is remaining silent on the matter but what did Toronto’s finest really have to say about? Was he pissed? Did he laugh? Here’s what Aubrey told writer Reggie Ugwu:

“I didn’t really have anything to say about it,” Drake says of the verse, which has so far inspired responses from A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, former Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson and too many others to count. “It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me. That’s all it was. I know good and well that Kendrick’s not murdering me, at all, in any platform. So when that day presents itself, I guess we can revisit the topic.”

Earlier today on Twitter, Kanye revealed Pusha T’s official Donda-designed My Name is My Name, which is still set for a Oct 8 release. The first minimalist design just features a black barcode over a white background. We’re not sure yet, but the numbers may represent something important to Pusha. The second cover features a simple back silhouette of the man himself.

P’s debut solo opus will feature Kanye, Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, Future, and Chris Brown, who appears on the Swizz Beatz-produced single “Sweet Serenade.”
