Fat Joe, Remy Ma and DJ Khaled Go Ham at Summer Jam 2016
Anybody familiar with Hot 97's annual Summer Jam concert event knows that the best sets are full of surprise guests and history making moments. Kanye West and the G.O.O.D. Music family tore down the Met Life Stage on Sunday (June 5), but the evening was far from over, as Fat Joe, Remy Ma and DJ Khaled had plenty of moves to make.
The set from Joe and Remy was a full showcase of Terror Squad hits and memories, as the two rattled off some of Big Pun's most iconic works including "I'm Not A Player" and "Twinz." Above, they're joined by French Montana for their summer turn up anthem "All the Way Up," while below, the two can be seen performing such classics as "Lean Back" and "New York." The duo dabbled in their solo cuts as well, with Ashanti joining Joe for a rendition of their collab "What's Luv?"
Even for a New York icon like Fat Joe, it would difficult to outdo DJ Khaled's rolodex, and the Miami orchestrator and sting puller took a break from Beyonce's Formation tour to show just what that means. Rick Ross came out for his verse on "Pop That," while Jadakiss and The LOX kept it New York by performing "We Gon Make It." Khaled likewise brought out Busta Rhymes, OT Genasis and Kent Jones. Things would have entered a different stratosphere though if Khaled was able to pull one more trick out of his sleeve, as he posted to social media after that he was unable to bring out Usher due to time constraints.
Peep a collection of clips below, including Khaled and Kanye West dapping each other back stage as captured by Kim Kardashian.
