Here are some of the best and most talked about moments from Hot 97′s Summer Jam 2014.
Action Bronson had arguably the most raw, hip-hop set of the show. Going straight into the crowd to perform.
You may have heard about 50 Cent showing the crowd “how to rob”, as he beats up and steals up-and-coming rapper Slowbucks’ chain, then rocks it for the rest of the show. Its likely this footage will be used in an upcoming criminal investigation.
Nas performs tracks from Illmatic for about 10 minutes. He then invited Meek Mill and French Montana on stage, who commandeered the set.
Here’s where Meek Mill fucked up. At the 18 minute mark, Nas’ “Hate Me Now” music starts back up. And as Nas is returning to the stage, Meek starts going “Hold up, hold up, hold up”, in truly bad form. You’re his guest homie.
What this show needs is more dudes on stage checking their email while an artist performs. #AmateurHour

50 Cent reunites G-Unit – except for Game – just in time for tomorrow’s release of Animal Ambition. Buck looks a little surprised at the 6:30 mark when his track “Shorty Wanna Ride” is cut off after the hook. Fabolous also joins on stage for a performance of the G-Unit remix of “Cuffin’ Season”.
The Roots played Summer Jam smart, delivering classics directly to the New York audience, with guest spots from M.O.P. (“Ante Up”), Dres of Black Sheep (“The Choice Is Yours”), and The Lox (“Wild Out”, “All About The Benjamins”).
Here’s Nicki Minaj performing “Yasss Bitch” with Soulja Boy. There are three reasons to watch this.
Nicki Minaj trolls the crowd by telling them she “doesn’t fuck with Drake no more”, but then brings him out to the tune of “Worst Behavior”. Lil Wayne appears next, naturally.
