New York City radio station Hot 97 celebrated its 20th annual Summer Jam concert with young rappers who are dominating the charts, a respected veteran hip-hop group and a slew of surprises.

Lil WayneRick RossNicki MinajMariah Carey and Lil Kim were among the guest stars of Sunday's Summer Jam XX at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Kendrick Lamar2 ChainzA$AP Rocky and French Montana performed sets that electrified the excited crowd. Wu-Tang Clan hit the stage and were solid, though the energy of the audience — filled with a good number of twentysomethings — dwindled throughout the set.

Hot 97's summer jam was poppin' yesterday with full performances by your favorite hip hop & R&B celebrities, their was some controversy with hip hop artist Papoose who hit the stage and surprised many including Hot 97's own Ebro who had no clue that he was performing, but we'll get to that in another blog post today. 

I was also pleasantly surprised that Nicki Minaj hit the stage despite last year controversy with Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg.  Lil Kim aka Kimmy Blanco also attended and I think it would have been super dope if Nicki and Lil Kim surprised the audience with a collaboration and bury the hatchet already. I love both ladies, but who knows time will tell with the two.
