Excitement, surprises, and camaraderie. Those are three words that describe the energy and essence of the backstage artist area during HOT 97's annual Summer Jam concert. From G.O.O.D. Music's Pusha-T having a conversation with Fat Joe, to Rick Ross walking around shirtless, and French Montana patrolling the halls with his massive entourage, you never know what you're going to witness.
Mix in a little Ma$e posing for photos with Childish Gambino, and Big Sean hanging out with Wale, and that's just a glimpse of what AllHipHop.com caught on camera behind-the-scenes at Hot 97's Summer Jam.
