Hot 97’s Summer Jam Recap 2006

An all-star lineup

of Hip-Hop artists turned out for radio station Hot 97’s 13th Annual Summer Jam

concert yesterday (June 4) at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

A pre-festival

show was held in the parking lot before the main event, featuring performances

by Beanie Man, Naughty

By Nature, and Baby Cham.

Three

6 Mafia opened the concert, pumping up the crowd with their hits "Stay

Fly" and "Poppin’ My Collar."

The group, minus

member Crunchy Black, also boasted their Oscar trophy.

Next, Remy

Ma entertained the mass with a dance number to old school tracks and performed

"Feel So Good" with Ne-Yo.

Other performers

included Dem Franchize Boys, Young Jeezy, Sean Paul, Jamie Foxx, Mary J. Blige,

Chris Brown, T.I., Busta Rhymes, Dipset, and Mobb

Deep.

"Summer Jam

brings New York together," Havoc of Mobb Deep told AllHipHop.com. "Compared

to all other summer [concerts], there is nothing like a New York Summer Jam."

The star-studded

affair also elicited surprise appearances from Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey,

who both showed up during Jermaine Dupri’s set.

Busta

Rhymes also brought out a host of guest artists, including Papoose, Rah

Digga, Missy Elliot, Q-Tip, Wu-Tang Clan, DJ K-Slay, Big Daddy Kane, and Kid

Capri.

After Busta’s solo

set, the guests made their way back on stage to perform Busta’s last song, "New

York S**t."

Busta also filmed

segments of the show–both onstage and backstage–for use in the upcoming music

video for "New York S**t."

the night with a guest appearance by Trey Songz.
