Last night’s Hot 97’s Summer Jam pulled out all of the stops, featuring a bumper crop of incredible talent and loads of extra craziness designed to make the crowd go insane. With tens of thousands in attendance, the energy was definitely at a fever pitch as we coasted into the early summer sunset. But unscheduled appearances from some of hip hop’s brightest lights brought things to another level -no, another stratosphere! Who put in some stellar surprise sets? Read on to find out!
In addition to a great artist lineup including Nas, 50 Cent, and Nicki Minaj, the night was a guessing game of who’s going to bring out whom. Was it in the rules that you had to bring out an A-lister to swap verses stage? We’re not sure, but we’re diggin’ that rule book! The Lox, T.I., Fabolous, Lil Jon, M.O.P., Dres of Black Sheep, Young Thug, Soulja Boy, and Yo Gotti put in guest spots, and that was just the start of the red carpet-worthy processional.
