Meek Mill Has A Performance To Remember + Swizz Beatz & Timbaland Finally See Who's Best At SummerJam! [VIDEO]
Can you believe it has been 25 years?
The rain did not stop hip hop fans and enthusiasts from packing out Metlife Stadium at the Meadowlands in New Jersey.
It all started early in the afternoon as our Who's Next winner Lil Boost Mobil got a chance to showcase his talents to a packed crowd on the festival village stage!
He was followed up by Snoopy Dinero, Don Q, Jay Critch, and even Casanova came out for a surprise performance!
Following the performances, the gates opened where MetLife stadium got TONS of surprises, and exciting performances.
First Rich The Kid hit the crowd with hits such as "New Freezer" and "Plug Walk."
Then Highbridge made their mark as A Boogie With The Hoodie came out to perform some of his hits and bring Don Q out fresh off his festival stage appearance and PnB Rock.
He had one more surprise up his sleeve as he brought Afrobeats star Davido out to perform their single "Way Too Fly." It won't be the last time we see him tonight though.
One word to describe A$AP Ferg is energy. He brought ALL of that into MetLife stadium as he performed a collection of his biggest hits including "Shabba," "Plain Jane," "Work" and more!
One year after her historic performance on Summer Jam, Remy Ma returned with a few guests to get the crowd hyped with her biggest hits. NeYo, Lil Kim and of course her big brother Fat Joe came through for another memorable performance.
June 10, 2018 marks the 10 year anniversary of Tha Carter III. For those who remember, the album was often delayed, leaked, yet in the middle of the biggest runs ever for a hip hop artist. Lil' Wayne came out to the sounds of "Mr. Carter" before running through a list of some of his biggest hits and mixtape tracks of the era. Before leaving he made sure to show his fans his appreciation before the sounds of Whitney Houston "I Will Always Love You" rang off.
Meek Mill said he wanted arrive to Metlife Stadium on a helicopter right? Well that wish came true and more. It was an entrance to remember as he not only landed on a helicopter, but he then drove in a four wheel motorcyle as the sounds of the Dreams and Nightmares intro rang off.
But wait. We weren't even close to done!
It was Swizz Beatz's turn to hit the stage, and it was definitely showtime! First he brought The LOX to perform "We Gon Make It," then a surprise no one was expecting. In an old interview with Bel Biv DeVoe, they asked to perform the hit song on SummerJam just once. They got their wish as they came through as if it was 1990 all over again.
Then Timbaland came out to finally face Swizz Beatz face to face in their long anticipated beat battle. From DMX, to Jay Z to Beyonce. It was 20 minutes to hit after hit after hit.

Following that epic battle was none other than Pulitzer Kenny! He performed a ton of his hits from DAMN., To Pimp A Butterfly, and more. He even brought Jay Rock out to the party!
Summer Jam ended with a big party! Megan Ryte tore up the stage as H-Town's finest came out to perform some of their hits. Slim Thug and Paul Wall performed their smash single "Still Tippin'" and Bun B came out to remind the crowd the outstanding legacy of UGK. Hoodcelebrityy brought the carribean vibes, as she was joined by Tory Lanez to perform Megan's hit single "On & On." The party was just getting started as Massive B ended the night with tons of soca and a surprise from Kranium.
It was certainly a night to remember!
