    How come they ain’t no NYC heads performing at Summer Jam? No dis to other regions, but Summer Jam used to always by NYC/East Coast event, not saying there shouldn’t be people from other places, but NYC/East Coast gotta be represented up in there.

  • Tha Ace

  • Cuban Link

    wow, not a single performance worth watching on Summer Jam, except maybe Swizz Beatz just cuz of the vibe you get from Its Me Snitches.

    The problem is really that none of these coons can perform.People like Busta, Jay-Z, even 50 climbing ont he roof, they could perform.Busta said it best during his speech at the BET Rap Awards.

    They shouldve got a jump on the East Coasts New Breed and brought in cats like Joell Ortiz, pappy, jae millz, Grafh, saigon, skyzoo, etc.
