Every spring, hip-hop heads anxiously await for Hot 97 to announce its coveted Summer Jam line up. While it's pretty easy to guess what heavyweights might hit the stage, there always seems to be a surprise or two along the way.
Hot 97 announced their official main stage line up last week, and it looks like fans are in for a treat - and maybe the unveiling of a good summer diss track. If you're wondering who's confirmed for Summer Jam, don't worry, we've got you and the list covered. Plus, we've taken it upon ourselves to break down a few things fans can hope to see during Hot's annual production. Currently guaranteed to hit the stage is Jidenna, Migos, Trey Songz, Faith Evans, Mister Cee, Joey Bada$$, Remy Ma, Papoose, Chris Brown, and DJ Khaled and all his friends.
While we can't tell you which of Khaled's friends will be there, we can tell you five things to look out for this year. Peep the list below, then purchase your tickets to Summer Jam here so you don't miss out on the show.
DJ Khaled and All His Friends
If there's one thing we know about DJ Khaled, it's that he has a lot of friends. From Drake and Rick Ross to Jay-Z and Beyonce, there's no telling who may touch the stage alongside the producer-turned-Snapchat-extraordinaire at Summer Jam. If we're lucky, maybe we'll get a glimpse of The Biebs - you know, now that they have a new song together and all. Either way, we know we'll be there waiting to find out. Will you?
Bad and Boujee Chicks Galore
After Migos' "Bad and Boujee" single dropped six months ago, the ATL trio watched the music and their name rise to the top of radio and Billboard charts. And their fans were right there showing their support along the way, including all the "boujee" females that inspired the hit. If there's one thing we've learned about the Migos, it's that their fans will always follow - so expect to see plenty of them at Summer Jam.
Whenever Trey Songz touches a stage, panties are sure to be thrown - clean, used or otherwise. The Virginia-bred singer is known for taking off a piece of clothing or two while performing, and with a concert this big fans shouldn't expect anything different.
Remy Ma and Papoose have shown fans the definition of #BlackLove ever since Remy's release from prison in 2014. While they may not be touching Summer Jam's stage to perform any love songs, they'll certainly be there holding each other down. (And maybe we'll get another dope diss track, but there's no telling.)
20 Years of the Notorious B.I.G.
Faith Evans and Mr. Cee are teaming up to give die hard Biggie fans the ultimate tribute to honor the 20-year legacy of the late Notorious B.I.G. With so much history behind the legend, anyone is bound to hit the stage and pay homage to a man who helped pave the way for hip-hop. From Junior M.A.F.I.A. to Puff, this tribute will probably be an unforgettable movie.
