This year, HOT 97 and Summer Jam 2011 are petitioning the government to declare The New Meadowlands Stadium District 97 on Sunday, June 5, 2011 and annually for HOT 97’s Summer Jam. HOT 97 wants you to become a District 97 Brand Ambassador and help get 50,000 signatures to make Hip-Hop history.
“HOT 97’s Summer Jam is different from any other concert”¦to me it’s the Hip-Hop Woodstock,” explains Hip-Hop superstar and Summer Jam 2011 performer Lil Wayne, “The electricity from the crowd is different, there’s so many people out there. There were people as far as my eyes could see and honestly I got a little nervous, because I was a special guest so when I ran out there I didn’t know it was that many people out there. Like Whoa!”
HOT 97’s Summer Jam is the world’s official annual gathering of Hip-Hop culture where music artists, dancers, DJs and fans gather to celebrate the music culture that changed the world. The U.S. Government considers a district to be a locality marked by a distinguished feature and since HOT 97 has been ushering thousands and thousands of people to The New Meadowlands Stadium year after year, HOT 97’s Summer Jam would only be appropriate to be declared District 97, Hip-Hop’s 1st Official District.
“One of the greatest events of the year is HOT 97’s Summer Jam. When I was performing there, it was probably like one of the most overwhelming experiences of my life, but I can’t wait to come back and kill it,” exclaims Drake.
