After more than a year’s anticipation, Ron Howard’s full-length documentary about Jay Z’s 2012 Budweiser Made in America Festival finally debuted on Showtime over the weekend. Of course, this means that the entire 90-minute film has already surfaced online and is available for streaming (see the embed below). Fittingly dubbed Made in America, the movie features interviews with many of the acts that performed at last year’s inaugural event in Philadelphia, including Hova himself (who revisits his former “stash spot” of 560 State Street in Brooklyn), Janelle Monáe, Pearl Jam, Run-D.M.C., and Santigold. There’s also footage of Skrillex giving Opie a lesson in dubstep. 

Scroll down to see the whole flick (please pardon the porny spam), and be sure to check out SPIN’s coverage of this year’s Made in America festival, which delivered live performances by Nine Inch Nails, Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Calvin Harris, and many more.
