Considered one of the most iconic hip-hop shows in the world, this is reportedly their 29th year. Many New York artists are taking the stage this year, and because New York is the home and originator of hip-hop, the natives are as prideful as ever. Lola Brooke, Brooklyn-born rising rapper, will be experiencing this festival for the first time, alongside other New York natives Ice Spice and Lil TJay. 

“This means everything to me. This is a New York City artist’s dream. It’s so crazy because the first time I never been to Summer Jam, I said I wasn’t coming back until I was on stage and I never came back.”
