Benny The Butcher Performs Live At Summer Jam
Summer Jam is one of the many must-attend events in Hip Hop culture and its history is full of iconic moments in hip hop history.
All sorts of rap and R&B milestones occurred at Summer Jam, like:
- When Jay-Z brought Michael Jackson out on stage to greet the crowd in 2001,
- Jay-Z debuting the Nas and Mobb Deep diss record 'The Takeover',
- Kanye West performed during the 2004 Summer Jam with a full gospel choir,
- NaS bringing Lauryn Hill out to perform with him during the 2012 Summer Jam,
- and so many more memories...
This year's edition of Summer Jam was no different with quite a few memorable moments:
- Cardi B popped up on the Festival Stage to perform with K Flock and B-Lovee,
- The incredible tribute to Kay Slay featuring a video narrated by 50 Cent and performances by Busta Rhymes, Fat Joe, The Lox, Remy Ma, Papoose, Jim Jones, and Juelz Santana,
- Lil Durk brought out Meek Mill, who then performed his iconic hit Dreams and Nightmares,
- Roddy Ricch performing literally minutes after he got out of jail in New York City,
- Fivio Foreign declaring himself the new King of New York,
- and so much more...
However, the most memorable moment for me was seeing another Buffalo Kid live on stage rocking the crowd.
Joined by fellow Black Soprano Family members Rick Hyde, Heem, and Love Boat, Benny The Butcher came out on stage and brought the same energy that thas catapulted him to the top of the hip hop.
It literally gave me goosebumps to watch someone who I've known for years captivate the crowd in MetLife Stadium.
