Endless Possibilities!! Full Breakdown Of Hot97’s Summer Jam Stadium Stage [Details][Video]
Earlier this week the whole Hot 97 family joined the Angie Martinez Show to announce the full line up for Summer Jam. If you missed it you can check it out here. This year’s festival stage is jammed back with nothing but acts making heavy noise in the industry right now. As for the main stadium stage we’re predicting a few epic sets with 50 Cent’s grand return after almost 11years, Nas celebrating his 20th year of his hip hop classic debut album Illmatic, the entire YMCMB family, The Roots and especially who their friends many be, and more.
So you saw our breakdown for the festival stage now check out our breakdown of this years Main Stage for Summer Jam 2014.
You know every Summer Jam there has to be a Brooklyn representer to ensure to ask “Where Brooklyn at?!” This year Hot97 has tagged in the young breed Troy Ave to represent his borough. With his mixtapes taking the streets by “Powder” storm, it seems he gets the call up. Currently with his single featuring Lloyd Banks, it makes you wonder if the former G-Unit will make an appearance. On top of that, who else can Troy bring out to help represent BK? Names are already floating but let’s just see it’s a set meant to be seen.
This is one of my personal favorites as Action Bronson has his own following that will definitely come out to Summer Jam. If you never seen Bronson perform then you’ll be in for a treat when he takes the stage. I can promise you two of these 3 things will happen that day: Bronson will BodySlam/Torture Rack/Stone Cold Stun a fan during his performance.
Bronson will put on an amazing show that will leave you wondering where this fat white guy come from. Bronson will be under some major influence and will have you under that stage influence through his positive energy and great vibes. Bronson will crowd surf… yes crowd surf… during his set at least once. Overall you’re in for a treat.
A soca legend will touching down on that stage this year and I know my caribbean masses are hype for this. Bunji single “Differentology” definitely got us hyped over at ThatsEnuff.com every time it came on. During one Rush Hour, DJ Enuff played the track for almost 8 mins straight. The cool breeze will be sweeping over the stadium when he hits that stage. Who knows maybe he’ll bring out other caribbean legends or even a live band. I just can’t wait to be in Eastern Parkway mode early.
As soon as we got to this name on the list all my bloggers look over to me because they know I’ve been vouching for her for a min. Now Sevyn gets to hit that big stage and hold it down for all the R&B women. The Summer Jam line up hasn’t had a R&B female in the line up since 2008 with Alicia Keys. Sevyn will bring the “sexiness” with her song “It Won’t Stop” and “nEXt”. Is it possible she’ll bring some guests with her like Breezy? She is his artist. Just a thought to keep in mind.
When you talk about the current consistency of good music, Kid Ink will always be mentioned. He is the only artist on the bill that currently has three songs on the radio at the same time between Show Me, Main chick, and Loyal. His debut album “My Own Lane” created national attention to him, especially with his features. He has club hits with Tyga, Meek Mill, Wale, and Chris Brown just to name a few. I predict this to be the set of the night.
DJ Mustard, YG and Ty Dolla $ign
The trio are coming to bring that West Coast vibe to the stage. Between Paranoid and My Hitta, the stadium will be rocking that whole set. Not to mention who Mustard may bring out from his large catalog. Who knows, maybe we’ll get a Toot it and Boot it performance from the two.
Trizzy is set to hit that stage and I know the ladies are going to go crazy. From his cliassic hits off of Anticipation to Ready and his current album Chapter 5, Trey cna hold his own on a major stage. Not to forget his countless collaborations as well with the likes of J cole, Drake, Young Jeezy and even Jay Z. Who knows where this performance can go but all signs points to epic.
Talking about good vibes and high energy, this is definitely down Wiz Khalifa lane. It’s Summer Jam so you know Wiz is coming to rock out with his fans through his tracks. I can almost bank he’ll try to start the biggest cypher known to man. Who knows, he may even bring out Amber Rose to twerk along side him.
Yes the Roots will be hitting this years’ summer Jam stage and what’s so amazing about this is that the Philly crew will also be bringing their friends as they celebrate 20 years of the Roots!!!! Leaving the possibilities of guest features during their set endless!!! Who knows maybe the Roots, Nas and the Marley’s will join forces on the Summer Jam Stage. Me may even get Erykah Badu!!
With this being the 20th year of Illmatic, this set is already an instant classic. The Queens rapper is no stranger to the big stage and big lights so Summer Jam stage will be conquered. Can you picture 30K plus rapping some of his classic joints? I’m excited for the endless possibilities that can come out of Nas’ show.
YMCMB as a whole family is set to take over that Summer Jam stage. We talking about Nicki, Wayne, Drizzy, Birdman and who ever else you can think of. We know they hold close ties to WTB family so it just make this show even more unpredictable. We can even get an appearance current boo, Rihanna. Think so? It’s possible. There’s a lot of star power that comes with YMCMB so this will be a concert in it’s self.
It’s been over 10 years since the Jamaica Queens native has graced the Summer Jam stage. Plus with his first independent album Animal Ambition set to drop in June, Summer Jam will undoubtedly serve as the perfect platform for what to expect from the newly independent artist. With a number of collaborations and tracks under his belt we’re pretty sure 50 will make sure his grand return will be something talked about for weeks after.
