June 5th is the annual Hip Hop meeting of all things, er, hip hop, the June 5th Summer Jam. I used to go all the time and have seen some great sets (and many, many, crap ones) but stopped when they moved it to Sundays.
Now those wise guys where hip hip lives, radio station Hit 97, who produce Summer Jam, are petitioning the State of New Jersey (it happens at Giants Stadium) to rename the Meadowlands Distric 97: "
Due to the amount of people HOT 97 brings into the New Meadowlands Stadium we would like to petition the government to create our own district of Hip-Hop. What is a district? The U.S Government considers a district to be a locality marked by a distinguished feature, in this case, Summer Jam!!!"
This year the show features Lil Wayne, Drake, Wiz Khalifa, Chris brown and others.
Sounds like a great idea to me so lend your support here: http://www.hot97.com/SummerJam2011petition/contests/register.aspx
contracts its world in Nashisms
let’s take what we are offered
It’s the music, stupid
a restless and fearless freak show
Eminem and Calvin couldn’t move Bey
summer’s entertainment is rewarded
compares the end of a romance to the end of life
House pure and simple
