Summer Jam ’15

My first time at NYC Summer Jam was two years ago and I had a great time meeting artist back stage and getting exclusive shots. But this year, my guy Jeff, gave me the opportunity to shoot with some of the best photographers in NY and for Hot97. This time around, I wouldn’t be backstage, stuck in a room but actually able to enjoy the show.

Since I don’t drive, I took the Hot97 Staff bus super super early in the AM. Being one of the first people there, I got to witness somethings most do. As I walked around an nearly empty MetLife Stadium i was able to watch a few sound checks.

#Throwbacking: Summer Jam ’13

Today, Hot 97 decided to release it’s first line up for this year’s Summer Jam. Flash backs to a few years ago instantly popped into my head. The time is 2013. My first ever NY Summer Jam ever. I’ve always heard and read stories about how crazy Summer Jam can be. I wasn’t just an attendee for the days festivities. Because of my mentor, Nunez, I had an All Access pass, to the whole stadium.

My photo responsibilities that day included getting BTS photos of the Vevo room where majority of the days artist would stop by to do short interviews. Though I missed the actual performances live in person (we had a flat screen set up in the back of the room), I’m sure any fan would of traded places with me in an heart beat. Almost every artist on the roster stopped by. So many are still some of my favorite artist including Miguel, J. Cole, the A$AP Crew (RIP Yamz), Joe Budden, Wale, TDE (Kendrick Lamar, SchoolBoy Q, Jay Rock, Ab Soul, Wu Tang, Lil Kim, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Ross, and many many more… What a day!!
