Jay-Z Cancels Made in America Festival 2020 Due to Pandemic

Jay-Z has canceled his 2020 Made in America festival.

The music event hosted annually by the 51-year-old rapper and his music company Roc Nation in Philadelphia on Labor Day weekend has been canceled this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement released on Wednesday (July 1), the company has rescheduled the event for 2021.

“2020 is a year like no other. We are in a pivotal time in this nation’s history,” Roc Nation said in their statement via THR. “Collectively, we are fighting parallel pandemics, COVID-19, systematic racism and police brutality. Now is the time to protect the health of our artists, fans, partners and community as well as focus on our support for organizations and individuals fighting for social justice and equality in our country. Therefore, the Made In America festival will be rescheduled for Labor Day Weekend 2021.”

This year’s Made In America festival was set to take place Sept. 5-6 at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia.

Roc Nation said tickets for the 2020 event will be valid in 2021.

“If anyone would prefer a refund, an email will be sent to request one,” the statement continued. “For any further ticket inquiries, please reach out to the point of purchase.”

Back in April, Jay-Z teamed up with this fellow entertainer to co-fund $6 million for pandemic relief.

Jay-Z Sends a Private Jet to Ahmaud Arbery's Lawyers to Go to Court

Jay-Z is helping to get justice for Ahmaud Arbery.

The 50-year-old musician chartered a private jet for Ahmaud‘s lawyers to attend a court heading in Brunswick, Georgia, they confirmed on Instagram on Thursday (June 4).

“When you absolutely have to be in Court to stand with your client and righteous protestors for justice … Jay Z sends his private jet. That’s part of the P.P.E plan to get us out of this Crisis (People Power Political Power Economic Power),” said Merritt Law Firm founder S. Lee Merritt on Instagram.

“Court hearing in Brunswick, Georgia this morning. No flights to take us there last night. @leemerrittesq and I spent hours trying to find flights or cars. At 1 am we started losing hope till we got a call from Jay Z’s people at Roc Nation who chartered a flight for us to attend this hearing with the family of Ahmaud Arbery,” added Blerim Elmazi, a civil rights attorney, on Instagram.

If you didn’t know, Ahmaud Arbery was an unarmed 25-year-old black man who was shot to death on February 23 while jogging in Glynn County, Georgia after being pursued and confronted by two white residents who were armed and driving a pickup truck. Three men were arrested in connection with the murder after video of the shooting surfaced online, sparking a national outcry.

Jay-Z recently did this in newspapers across the nation…

Jay-Z Takes Out Full Page Newspaper Ads Across the Country for George Floyd

Jay-Z and Roc Nation are honoring the memory of George Floyd.

The 50-year-old entrepreneur and his company have taken out several full-page ads in newspapers across the country in honor of George, whose murder sparked nationwide protests against systemic racism and police brutality.

The ad has been displayed on Roc Nation’s social media channels, and includes a passage from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.‘s 1965 Selma address.

“Only way we can really achieve freedom is to somehow hunker the fear of death. But if a man has not discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live. Deep down in our nonviolent creed is the conviction — that there are some things so dear, so things so precious, so things so eternally true, that they are worth dying for,” the ad reads.

“A man dies when he refuses to stand up for that which is right. A man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice. A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true. So we’re going to stand up amid horses. We’re going to stand up right here, amid the billy-clubs. We’re going to stand up right here amid police dogs, if they have them. We’re going to stand up amid tear gas!”

The ad was signed by Jay, 50 Cent and many organizations, as well as the parents of three black men killed by police: Botham Jean, DJ Henry and Antwon Rose II.

The letter was printed in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune and the Philadelphia Enquirer on Tuesday, with more to come, according to CNN.

Jay-Z Calls Minnesota Governor to Demand Justice After George Floyd's Death

Jay-Z is fighting for justice after the death of George Floyd.

The 50-year-old entertainer released a statement on Sunday (May 31), revealing that he spoke with Minnesota Governor Tim Waltz to speak out the ongoing racial injustice.

“After our very earnest conversation, thank you to Governor Walz for doing what’s right and calling in Attorney General Keith Ellison to take over the George Floyd case,” Jay shared in a statement on Roc Nation‘s Twitter. “Earlier today, Governor Walz mentioned having a human conversation with me – a dad and a black man in pain.”

Jay continued by saying that he demands that all four officers involved in George‘s death be prosecuted.

“Yes, I am human, a father and a black man in pain and I am not the only one,” Jay continued amidst the Black Lives Matter movement. “Now I, along with an entire country in pain, call upon AG Ellison to do the right thing and prosecute all those responsible for the murder of George Floyd to the fullest extent of the law.”

As of right now, only Derek Chauvin, the police officer who kneeled on George‘s neck, has been charged.

“This is just a first step. I am more determined to fight for justice than any fight my would-be oppressor may have,” Jay wrote. “I prevail on every politician, prosecutor and office in the country to have the courage to do what is right. Have the courage to look at us as humans, dads, brothers, sisters and mothers in pain and look at ourselves. -Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter.”
