Hot 97’s SummerJam 2016 Held Church Service with G.O.O.D. Music, Terror Squad, DJ Khaled & More

blame it on 2DBZ June 5, 2016

While inclement weather may have shutdown the final day of the Governors Ball, in which Kanye West was slated to make an appearance as the headlining artist, it looks like everything is still a go for Hot 97’s annual SummerJam.

Well, not quite entirely. The same expected bad weather that shut down the Governors Ball also forced Hot 97 to cancel SummerJam’s outside festival stage, where Chance the Rapper, Tory Lanez, Desiigner, Curren$y and more were expected to perform.

However, the Stadium stage is still a go, and as of this writing, the live stream has already popped off. You’ll be able to catch the official Terror Squad reunion, Future, Bryson Tiller, G.O.O.D. Music with Pusha T and Big Sean, A$AP Rocky & A$AP Ferg and more throughout the night. Plus, with Kanye roaming New York somewhere, there may be a chance that he’ll show up sometime this evening.


Through compacted from a daylong celebration to a four (or so) hour show thanks to a lightning storm, many artists — including Chance The Rapper, Curren$y, Young Thug, and Future — had their performances cut altogether. Instead, attendees were treated to high-energy sets from Fat Joe and Remy Ma (who promised to reunite the Terror Squad; however, just Tony Sunshine appeared) with special guest Ashanti, an A$AP Mob set with special guests strippers, Bryson Tiller with special guest Fabolous (the two premiered the remix to Tiller’s “Sorry Not Sorry“), and G.O.O.D. Music with special guest Kanye West.

Unfortunately, each artist’s set was marred with issues. During the G.O.O.D performance, the official SummerJam screen crashed for roughly 45 minutes, only getting back to normal right when the group was wrapping up their show. Fat Joe and Remy Ma’s set was blacked out during “All The Way Up.” And a massive brawl delayed DJ Khaled’s guest-heavy performance, resulting in his microphone getting cut off 20 minutes in and effectively canceling Future’s performance as a whole.

Later that night, Kanye West thought it was a good idea to try and throw a concert at a venue that only holds 3,000 people. As you can see, it didn’t go as planned (or did it?)…
