The mayor of Philadelphia has responded to JAY-Z’s open letter
“We hope to be able to resolve what has been an unfortunate misunderstanding.”
Earlier today, JAY-Z penned an open letter addressed to Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney, which was published in The Philly Inquirer. The letter was written in response to his Made In America festival being forcibly asked to move locations from the Parkway, where it's been held since starting in 2012.
