Hot 97 Summer Jam XX Lineup Welcomes 2 Chainz, Chris Brown, A$AP Rocky + More
Hot 97 Summer Jam XX, one of hip-hop and R&B’s most beloved concert events, welcomes a slew of big name performers this year.
During the Angie Martinez Show earlier today, the radio jock and many other Hot 97 personalities came together to announce this year’s lineup, which includes rappers and singers from across the nation.
Wale was the first artist to be named as a performer gracing the stage. This is the Maybach Music Group signee’s fourth time performing at the event. He’ll likely perform his current track ‘Bad Girls.’ Next up is 2 Chainz, whose debut album, ‘Based on a T.R.U. Story,’ spawned such hits as ‘I’m Different,’ ‘Birthday Song’ and ‘No Lie.’
West Coast emcee Kendrick Lamar will grab the mic to treat fans to songs like ‘Poetic Justice’ and ‘Swimming Pools (Drank).’ Also, the entire Wu-Tang Clan are uniting to perform at Summer Jam. Surely their supporters will be graced with classic tunes like ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ and ‘Triumph,’ among others.
Fabulous, who’s preparing to release his sixth studio LP, ‘Loso’s Way 2: Rise to Power,’ is part of the lineup as well as ‘No Love Lost’ creator Joe Budden, ‘How Many Drinks’ crooner Miguel and ‘Fine China’ singer Chris Brown.
This marks the 20-year anniversary of Summer Jam, taking place June 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Like in year’s past, surprise guests are sure to flood the stage. Before the big show kicks off, Joey Bada$$, A$AP Ferg, Action Bronson, Smoke DZA, Troy Ave, Vinny Cha$e, Bodega Bamz, Kid Ink and the winner of the 2013 Who’s Next Battle for the Best, Radamiz, will take the mic too on the Festival Village stage.
