WQHT (Hot 97)/New York has announced the massive lineup for its 20th annual Summer Jam concert. Summer Jam XX will be held at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, June 2 and features The Wu-Tang Clan, Miguel, Kendrick Lamar, Chris Brown, Wale, Fabolous, 2 Chainz, French Montana, A$AP Rocky and Joe Budden. Hot 97 also promises "the biggest and hottest surprise guests in Hip Hop." The Wu-Tang Clan performed at the first-ever Hot 97 Summer Jam two decades ago. The Hot 97 Festival Village outside of the stadium is the home of the pre-show, which runs from 2-6 p.m., and features Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$, A$AP Ferg, Vinny Cha$e, Smoke DZA, Bodega Bamz, Troy Ave, Kid Ink, and the winner of the 2013 Who’s Next Battle for the Best, Radamiz. Tickets for Summer Jam XX are available now. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Hip Hop Has Heart Foundation for local community programs and outreach initiatives.

Like a zombie rising from the digital ground, Kanye West revived his Twitter account to say simply, "June Eighteen." Many postulated that he was cryptically announcing the date of his new album, which Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg described as "dark." Journalist Elliott Wilson then tweeted, "Chris Atlas at Def Jam confirmed. Kanye West. New album. 6.18.13." though he later rescinded his claim, saying, "Clarity: Kanye West album release date has NOT been confirmed. Apologies to Chris Atlas." It would seem likely that West is bound to debut a new song from his upcoming album when he appears as the musical guest for the season finale of Saturday Night Live on May 18.
Chris Brown has picked July 16 as the release date for his new album, X. The singer confirmed the release date on Twitter late Monday night when he tweeted out a new track, "I Can't Win," although he added that this particular song will not be on the album.
In honor of the 20th anniversary of TLC, surviving members Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas have a new album, a VH1 made-for-TV movie and a tour in the works. The tour will feature digital projections of late member Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes on a big screen to accompany the live vocals. It was already announced that the group will play at Hershey, PA's Mixtape Festival on July 27. "The word anniversary means a celebration. For us, her death will never be a celebration, it's still something that hurts," Watkins said in a statement, with Thomas adding, "Lisa is our sister. You never get over losing a family member. We love her and we miss her and that isn't ever going to change." A spokesperson for VH1 confirmed that the biopic is slated to air on the network in the fall, while Chilli told Essence, "We'll have new music right after the movie drops."
