2016 Hot 97 Summer Jam

Like every year, HOT 97’s annual Summer Jam concert wasn’t without drama.

After severe thunderstorms forced HOT 97 to cancel all their Festival Stage performances, which included Chance The Rapper, Tory Lanez, Dave East, Post Malone, Desiigner, and Justine Skye, the station also had to cut DJ Khaled’s performance short and cancel Future’s headlining performance.

Between severe weather delays and a massive brawl that left several concert-goers injured, HOT 97 found themselves battling MetLife’s stadium curfew.

While most of the main stage lineup performed, DJ Khaled, who traveled up from Beyoncé’s Philly concert just an hour before, got his performance cut short.

DJ Khaled still managed to bring out Rick Ross, Yo Gotti, OT Genasis, Mavado, and The LOX before his music got cut off. Unfortunately, Future never got a chance to hit the stage and he wasn’t happy about it.

This is the second time Future got his show cut short in less than 24 hours. During Saturday’s Roots Picnic in Philly, a frustrated Freebandz walked off stage after festival organizers couldn’t fix its audio issues in the North tent.

Despite all the issues HOT 97 faced, they still put on one of the best hip-hop concerts in the world. Another year, another memorable Summer Jam.
