JAY-Z continues to be a voice of reason.
In build up to his annual Budweiser Made In America festival taking place in Philly next month, Hov preaches the story of persistence in his new spoken word poem titled “Dream On.”
The 90-second video which you can watch below is centered around the old Marcy apartments in Brooklyn.
“It takes tears, sweat, blood, five CCs,” the rapper says in the clip. “Because I know what a kid in apartment 5C see/ Heaven knows all I had was hella hope/ Speed dating with destiny, I couldn’t tell her no.”
“Dream On” poem will air before his headlining set in Made In America which takes place September 2nd and 3rd at Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
The festival will feature sets by Solange, J. Cole, Migos and many more.
