Hot 97 held it’s annual Summer Jam event at Giants Stadium in New Jersey last night (June 8), drawing tens of thousands of concert goers.
Mary J. Blige, Jadakiss, The Dream, Elephant Man, Juelz Santana and Jim Jones were all featured guests at the event, and gave crowd pleasing performances.
A number of artists also made appearances during the evening, including Lil Kim, Maino, Drake, Method Man, and Jay Z who unveiled his new single “The Death of Autotune.”
Then Jay Z made his introduction, rapping his verse on Young Jeezy’s “Put On remix, before launching into his new “Death of Autotune track.
Shortly after finishing the song T-Pain came out and stood next to Jay. T-pain had no problem with Jay’s song, which talks about too many rappers using Pain’s Autotune device instead of straight rapping.
Method Man, and Redman performed with Mary J. Blige, Busta Rhymes and Jeremih appeared with Jadakiss, and DJ Khaled performed with Ace Hood.
Soulja Boy also made an appearance with Juelz Santana and Jim Jones.
This year Summer Jam was hosted by comedian Tracy Morgan, and featured a superhero inspired theme.
Concert goers were given programs in plastic protective sleeves, and the programs featured comic book inspired illustrations.
This marks the final year that the event will take place at the current Giants Stadium which is scheduled to be torn down later this year.
