Migos, DJ Khaled, Jidenna + Many More To Play Hot 97's Summer Jam
Yours truly had the pleasure of being amongst some of the most respected DJs in the country to hear who will be playing at this year’s Summer Jam. It was a private engagement at Emmis NY, but it felt like everyone (anyone who is anyone) was there at Hot 97. From Funkmaster Flex to Ebro to Remy Ma to XXXTentacion — the building was flooded with talent, good food and high anticipation.
With that in mind, Hot 97 put together a pretty stocked roster for Summer Jam 2017. The festival will feature performances from DJ Khaled, Migos, Joey Bada$$, the aforementioned Remy Ma, Fat Joe, Desiigner, Chris Brown, D.R.A.M., French Montana and Young M.A., plus many more. R&B legend Faith Evans will present a special tribute to her late husband, Christopher Wallace (The Notorious B.I.G.) called “20 Years of B.I.G.,” while rising artists A Boogie, Dave East, Casanova and PHresher are set to perform on the Festival Stage.
Despite the questions from Joey Bada$$ about New York radio, it seems that the Big Apple is primed and ready to support its hometown artists. If there was any other indication it showed during last night’s private affair as people from all over, from all sorts of areas came out to enjoy the announcement.
