1. Performance History
It was dope when Nas and Lauryn came out [on stage]. That was just a dope moment. I was backstage and [Lauryn] was just so humble and calm. It was dope when they walked out together (K. Foxx). One my favorite Summer Jam performances was when Fat Joe and the Terror Squad hit that stage and “Lean Back” took over the stage (Ebro). I was swear I was gonna say the same thing ’cause that’s when I was DJing for Lil Jon, and he came out on Lil Jon’s set. That was my favorite moment. That’s when Lil Jon’s crunk era was at the peak so all his songs were just club bangers (Cipha Sounds).
