(FreshAsFrankie) JAY-Z will headline the annual Budweiser Made In America festival next month and has shared an inspiring new poem, “Dream. On” in anticipation of the show. In the clip, Hov talks about his youth and growing up in the Marcy Houses of Brooklyn.

Watch it below.

“I’m from where dreaming ain’t allowed, especially when you dreaming aloud/Enough to dream your self-esteem into clouds/It takes tears, sweat, blood, five CCs/’Cuz I know what a kid in apartment 5C seed/Heaven knows all I had was hella hope, speed dating with destiny, I couldn’t tell her nope/When I first saw stars, television was my telescope/For me, something that could see me free was a bar/Through diamonds in the sky that never came down, now that’s a star/My vision was big enough to get me out of the space, I wanted to pass how far I see/I wondered could a kid from Mars see, a kid from Marcy,” spits Jay Z during the poem.

The “Dream. On.” clip will play at the beginning of Jay-Z’s set at Made in America fest, which takes place September 2nd and 3rd in Philadelphia. The lineup also includes J. ColeSolangethe Chainsmokers and Migos.
