Jay Z holds an annual Fourth Of July concert in Philadelphia entitled Made In America - and it's one of the biggest concerts of the summer.
Ever since the concert series began, Budweiser has been the proud sponsor of the event. But NOT ANYMORE.
This week it was announced that Bud will not be sponsoring rapper Jay-Z’s “Made In America” music festival this year. The company has instead opted to spend money sponsoring country music events.
The lineup for the 2018 “Made In America” concert series is top notch - featuring Nicki Minaj, Post Malone, Meek Mill, Diplo, Zedd, Ty Dollar $ign, Miguel, Fat Joe, Lil B, and JPEGMAFIA.
So why did Bud pull out? Well one popular website Rhymes With Snitch claims that Budweiser, which “used to spend millions of dollars staging and promoting the fest,” realized that country music attendees drink more Budweiser beer.
But others are speculating that they are worrying about upsetting the President - who dislikes Jay Z because he's Black.
Reviews are starting to come out for Jay-Z and Beyonce's On The Run II tour and they're seemingly positive. Here's what The Guardian had to say about the tour:
Jay-Z initially seems as though he’s keeping the stage warm for Beyoncé while she gets her breath back. By the end though, he’s not been outshone – mainly because of his arsenal of glorious modern classics (99 Problems, Niggas In Paris, Big Pimpin’) and perhaps partly because of his excessive costume changes, which put Beyoncé’s meagre half-dozen sequined leotards in the shade.
