The 25th annual Hot 97 Summer Jam went down on Saturday (6/10) at MetLife Stadium with Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne (joined by a drummer), Swizz Beatz who did a DJ battle with Timbaland and also brought out Jadakiss & Styles P, A$AP Ferg, Remy Ma, Tory Lanez, Rich The Kid, A Boogie who brought out Don Q, DJ Megan Ryte who brought out Slim Thug, Paul Wall and Bun B (not Pimp C), and more. After he was released from prison for his much-protested arrest which was partially related to him popping wheelies on dirt bikes in NYC, Meek Mill was added to Summer Jam and he took the stage by popping a wheelie in his ATV.
The Festival Stage in MetLife Stadium's parking lot included Snoopy Dinero, Jay Critch, Casanova, Famous Dex and Don Q. Pictures of both stages' acts are in the gallery above.
Lil Wayne, who also played the High Times Cannabis Cup in Michigan this past weekend, will play the NYC-area again this July at Panorama. He was recently added to the fest as a replacement for Cardi B.
