Kanye backs Jay-Z at festival, Obama in video

PHILADELPHIA--Jay-Z brought out heavy hitters to support him at the “Budweiser Made In America” festival: Kanye West and U.S. President Barack Obama.

Obama appeared in a video, urging the crowd of nearly 50,000 to vote. West joined Jay-Z at the end of his set, performing hits like “Mercy” and “(N word) In Paris” on Saturday night.

Before taking the stage, Jay-Z made his way down the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art — made famous by Rocky — as his song “Made In America” played in the background.

Jay-Z headlined the first night of the two-day festival he curated, performing hits like “Empire State of Mind” and “Big Pimpin'” in a 90-minute show.

Skrillex, Miike Snow and Janelle Monae also performed. Pearl Jam, Run DMC and Drake will perform Sunday.
