Drake, Nicki Minaj, DJ Khaled Rock Hot 97's Summer Jam

70,000 show up to see NYC's Rap radio flagship annual put on with Gucci Mane, Reflection Eternal, Fabolous, & T-Pain.

Yesterday at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, New York radio station Hot 97's annual Summer Jam took place in front of a crowd of nearly 70,000. The sold out event featured numerous Hip Hop stars including Young Money's Drake and Nicki Minaj, Fat Joe, Fabolous, Rick Ross, Cam'ron, T-Pain, Maino, DJ Khaled, Estelle, Gucci Mane and Talib Kweli.

Highlights include DJ Khaled's set, which included appearances from his Terror Squad brother Fat Joe, as well as Rick Ross, Cam'ron and Barrington Levy. Young Money's "Barbie," Nick Minaj had several mini-performances involving costume changes and various themes. The DXnext alum featured several guests in his songs, including Ludacris for "My Chick Bad."

Just over a week away from his "official" debut, Thank Me Later, Young Money's Drake came to his knees to thank fans for their support in bringing the former Degrassi actor to the ranks of one of Rap's leading stars. The Toronto native performed upcoming album cuts, as well as tracks from his nearly-gold So Far Gone retail-mixtape.

Over two dozens artists reportedly performed in total. Hot 97's own Funkmaster Flex also made an appearance.

In past years, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Michael Jackson and The Diplomats have headlined the fame Rap gala.

    All the people saying rock the bells is better are the people who stayed home on there computer yesterday like a bunch of cornballs. Summerjam2010 was hot if you were there like me but since your just a nerd thats on your computer all day you say otherwise.

    • JasonCTown

      If you liked it, great, but Rock the Bells certainly has more variety and a stronger guest list.

    • Indiemuzik

      Dude those tickets are sold out in like 20 minutes after the event is announced. I only know 1 dude in my neighborhood that was able to go. Well atleast I got to go to the Wu Massacre concert a few months ago, which was pretty sick. Also in July it's Nas & Damian Marley!

    Wowwwwwwwwwww!!!Recently, I came across a hot dating and friends club. --**Blackmilitaryfriends.com**-- It's a cool site caters to all men and women in the military or retired from the military seeking love and friendship. There are many single members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, Police Force, and Firefighters -- as well as civilians, veterans. Me and my aireforce boyfriend also meet there 1 year ago. We are now happily married. Check it out, you are also destined to meet your Mr or Mrs Right or good friends there.

  • Rob Wiggz

    • ^Retard.

      Shit kweli fabo camron kweli and fat joe that aint bad every1 else is trash but 4 good ppl aint bad

  • JasonCTown

    Summer Jam boasts some pretty weak entertainment these days. Rock the Bells is where its at now.....

  • vargo05

    Why the F*** would Kweli and Hi-Tek agree to be on this commercialized garbage lineup? Confusing.

    • Indiemuzik

      Cause my dude Talib Kweli deserves the recognition and money that goes with it. I know he's already worth $14 million, but more people deserve to know there's other talent out there outside of the radio. Also a dude I know is interested in his music now after seeing him, so there you go, he's converted somebody to liking good hip hop.
