(AllHipHop News) The line-up for Hot 97’s Summer Jam 2013 concert has been announced, and the list of artists scheduled to appear includes some of the hottest acts in Hip-Hop and R&B.
TDE’s Kendrick Lamar will continue his year-long run of success at the annual event. He will be joined by a host of New York City talent. A$AP Rocky, Fabolous, French Montana, and the legendary Wu-Tang Clan will all take the Summer Jam stage this year.
On the R&B side will be “Fine China” singer Chris Brown and Miguel, the creator of the Grammy winning “Adorn.” Reality star/Slaughterhouse member Joe Budden, Maybach Music Group’s Wale, and Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz round out the roster.
Previously, rising emcees Joey Bada$$, Action Bronson, Smoke DZA, and Troy Ave were among the acts announced as part of the Festival Stage that takes place outside the stadium before the big show.

Throughout the 20 years of Summer Jam history, surprise guests have been known to pop up during performers’ sets, so the unofficial line-up could add even more star power to the show.
Selecting the performers for one of the most celebrated events in Hip-Hop is a tough task. Hot 97 has partnered with Pepsi to provide fans with a look behind the curtain to see how the team at the New York radio station puts the show together. In a new webseries called “Road To Summer Jam,” Hot 97’s Ebro, Donyshia, and DJ Enuff give details to the entire process.
