Nicki Minaj will headline the 2012 Summer Jam at the Met Life Stadium in New Jersey on June 3, with the star-studded likes of Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Wale, DJ Khaled, Waka Flocka, Young Jeezy, 2 Chainz, French Montana, Maino, Tyga, Big Sean J. Cole, R&B crooner Trey Songz and reggae/dancehall star Mavado all set to take the stage as well. And they’re just the confirmed names, as Summer Jam is notorious for adding special surprise guests every year.

The Summer festival stage pre-show will be graced by Pusha T, A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar and his Black Hippy crew.

Last year’s Summer Jam closed out its show with the likes of Rick Ross, Diddy and Lil Wayne holding down the stage in front of the thousands and thousands of fans who flooded the seats at the home of the Super Bowl champion, New York Giants. Before that, Lloyd Banks heated things up with Swizz Beatz, Chris Brown delivered an entertaining set, the complete Dipset held fort and Wiz Khalifa performed his hits.
