Sunday night, HOT 97 took over MET Life stadium in East Rutherford, NJ for their annual Summer Jam concert, which some deem as “The Superbowl of Hip-Hop Concerts.” The show featured performances from Young Jeezy, 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Nas, Lauryn Hill, Waka Flocka Flame, Pusha T, French Montana, Maino, Tyga, Rick Ross, Mase, T.I., Ne-Yo, Meek Mill, Wale, Trey Songz and J.Cole. Nicki Minaj was scheduled to appear as well but comments made by Peter Rosenberg during the pre-show and orders from her boss, Lil Wayne gave orders not to perform. Drats.
Above is some BTS footage from the perspective of MTV News. The crew spoke with French Montana, Future, 2 Chainz, Tyga and others about the monumental show. Check it out.
