For those that don’t know, Hot 97 has an annual concert that artists from all over try to perform at. This is one of the biggest Hip Hop events of the year and thanks to live streaming I was able to view it. It is held at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
There were two concerts that took place. The Festival Stage had new artists perform like August Alsina, Iggy Azalea, Jhene Aiko, Childish Gambino, Nipsey Hussle, and Chinx. Then there was the Stadium Stage, the artists that performed were Nicki Minaj and YMCMB, Nas, 50 Cent, Wiz Khalifa, Trey Songz, Ty Dolla Sign, YG, Kid Ink, Sevyn Streeter, The Roots, Bunji Garlin, Troy Ave and Action Bronson. Needless to say it was an eventful night. Check out the details below.
The music lovers were definitely satisfied as the artists brought their A game out.The Queensbridge emcee continued his Illmatic twentieth anniversary celebration with several other tracks from the debut. Nas definitely brought Queensbridge out last night.A Nas set included cameos from Meek Mill and French Montana as well as a live performance of his anthem “New York State Of Mind.”
Nas then introduced 50 Cent who came out on stage and brought the whole G Unit gang. Yes 50, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck performed together despite the bad blood between the three. They performed hits like “I Smell Pussy,” “So Seductive,” and “Shorty Wanna Ride.” 50 brought out Fabolous and Yo Gotti as for special guests. He also made it known that he is no longer down with Interscope Records or Jimmy Ipvine. “A label can’t drop a nigga like me,” he said. “I dropped the label. Niggas thought Jimmy Iovine was my boss, are you kidding me?” Does this mean G-Unit could be getting back together?
Nicki Minaj performed the best of her ability with the wack ass sound guy that couldn’t fix her mic. She brought out Young Thug and they performed ‘Danny Glover’. She also performed ‘Lookin Ass’, her verse in ‘Monster’, and her and Soulja Boy performed ‘Yass Bitch’.
