MORE PICS: Trinidad James, A$AP Rocky, 2 Chainz, Nicki Minaj, Lil' Wayne AND More At Hot 97's Summer Jam XX + A$AP Ferg DISSES Teyana Taylor
HOT 97's annual SUMMER JAM was held in East Rutherford, NJ yesterday with Trinidad James, A$AP Rocky, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne among the high profile appearances. See pics and video inside and find out which rapper dissed Teyana Taylor....
Yesterday, Hot 97's Summer Jam took place at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium for its 20th anniversary concert. The legendary event brings together some of the biggest and most influential hip-hop artists in the music business...and those folks usually bring out their even more famous friends! This year, The Wu-Tang Clan helped close out the show with what celebrated the 20th anniversary of their classic debut Enter The Wu-Tang.
Bad Boy's French Montana was among the homegrown hip hop all-stars who rocked the mic for the evening. For his set, the rapper brought out Rick Ross.
Lil' Wayne also joined French Montana on stage for a performance of "Pop That".
"I'm Different" rapper 2 Chainz performed a few of the hits that turned him into one the industry's hottest artists.
2 Chainz and A$AP ROcky also performed together.
And for his song "I Luv Dem Strippers" 2 Chainz brought out Nicki Minaj. As she exited the stage, Nicki had some QT with Hot 97's DJ Peter Rosenberg who felt the wrath of her Barbz after he insulted her during Summer Jam 2012. The viral insult made her bolting from the show.
R&B crooner Miguel performed an energetic set, and this time, no one was injured! He even brought out Mariah Carey for a performance of "#Beautiful".
Also, J. Cole appeared for "Power Trip."
Hometown hero Joe Budden, who's become more famous for his antics on VH1's "LAHH 3" than his music, hit the stage to show folks he can still rhyme.
Watch A$AP Rocky, Bone Thugs, Trinidad James and A$AP Mob hit the stage:
And in beefs and disses....
Any hip-hop fan knows you can't have "Summer Jam" without someone getting dissed or (verbal) shots being fired...and Teyana Taylor was on the receiving end of a jab this year.
In what could be a well-timed publicity stunt, shortly after Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg announced that A$AP Ferg would be dropping his debut album, Trap Lord, on August 20, the rapper hit the stage and dissed G.O.O.D. Music starlet Teyana saying,
“Who you know who got big tits – Teyana/ Sucked on em when I lived out in Harlem/ got signed back Pharrell and started acting like a prima donna.”
So far, Teyana has not responded to the diss but people ARE talking about Ferg and his album release date. Coincidence?
