Every year, the hype surrounding Hot 97's Summer Jam reaches critical mass just as the show is about to start. And every year, over the course of a day, Hot 97 finds a way to top the hype, and the previous years' showcases.
This year's Festival Stage was an upgrade from last year's, and boasted a lineup of a-list artists that rivals almost every other major festival this summer. The coveted Stadium Stage artists included Nas, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and many more with special performances from Drake, French Montana, G Unit, among others. Needless to say, it was an evening packed full of hip-hop and we tried to recap the entire night into one two minute recap for those of you who missed it.
