New York rap radio giant Hot 97 has revealed the lineup for this year’s Summer Jam, the event that always seems to generate at least one buzzworthy collaboration or song premiere each year. It’s taking place on June 6 at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Even though surprise guests are being promised, the list of confirmed artsts is already pretty stacked.
Usher, Drake, Trey Songz, Ludacris, Fabolous, Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, Juelz Santana, DJ Khaled and Friends, and a not-billed-as-Reflection-Eternal Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek round out the first batch of locked down acts. The innocuously named “DJ Khaled and Friends” should be the set to watch, considering that the Miami DJ’s epic posse cuts imply that his “friends” include every heavy hitter in rap today.
Tickets for Summer Jam 2010 are already available at all Ticketmaster outlets.
