This Sunday I got to say goodbye to summer at the second day of the 4th annual Budweiser Made in America festival.
Fabolous graced the stage earlier in the day setting the tone for a day filled with rap superstars. The ultimate cool guy’s set combined brotherly love with New York Swag when Philly natives Freeway and the Young Gunz surprised the crowd by joining him. He embraced the crowd again on social media later that night playing hilarious clips of hometown hero Kevin Hart on his instagram page.

I’m a huge Fabolous fan (Soul Tape 3 is still on my treadmill playlist) but my favorite part of his set was meeting a LoveBrownSugar reader! It’s always dope to hear what you guys think about the blog and that experience totally made my day.

This Saturday I had the pleasure of attending the 4th annual Budweiser Made in America festival. I have gone each year and I can honestly say the event has gotten bigger and better than ever. Once a three stage affair, this year the festival featured FIVE stages with music acts of all genres enticing attendees. My excitement was seriously high on opening day as I awaited the performances of Death Cab for Cutie, G-Eazy, Meek Mill and more.
The main attraction of course was the one and only Beyoncé. Mrs. Carter herself shut it down on the main stage headlining with a newly worked set and super stylish costumes that reminded Philadelphia why she runs the world
She opened with a dramatic rendition of her contribution to the soundtrack for “Fifty Shades of Grey” appearing doll like yet dominant in a life-sized doll box.
