If the festival stage brought some hip hop notables, you can only imagine who showed up during the main-stage performance. There were whispers that Jay-Z and Beyonce were going to come as the surprise guests and perform "Crazy in Love" (one could only hope); however, the recently named billionaire couple did make an appearance to support Hot 97 and their fellow artists.
Lil Kim was also another surprise guest that seemed to have been predicted amongst the eager fans. She slipped in through the back only to make a splash on stage with Fabolous, performing "Queen B*tch." While her song selection probably had more to do with Biggie, it didn't help that rival Nicki Minaj performed later.
Recently coming off of tour with Juicy J, Ferg was the only artist who performed at both the festival stage and the main stage. He and Rocky brought out Trinidad James to perform the viral remix to his Billboard-topping song "Work."
Social media maven Karen Civil and Pusha-T were spotted before Pusha's surprise set with Fabolous, who have recently been touring together on the "Life Is So Exciting" tour. Karen sported this tank made by Sue Tsai.
Miguel started off the night extremely strong, bringing out two surprise guests in his set--J.Cole and Mariah Carey. Check him out posing for Hot 97 above!
Wale brought Meek Mill out as his surprise guest, completely putting on for MMG. Known for his intricate use of syllables, Meek performed his single "Levels" for the first time tonight.
