Why Philly?

Jay-Z says, "Everyone knows I have a long love affair with Philly. You know, early in my career, this is one of the first towns that really embraced me and supported me. I signed an incredible number of artists out of this area. And also now, I'm going to do some film work with Will Smith and James Lassiter over at Overbrook, so I have all these deep connections here. And above and beyond that, it's called Made in America. It's such an iconic city."
