We all know Summer Jam 2015 is around the corner, as the hype multiplies, let’s take a moment to appreciate the moments that made this annual hip-hop festival so great through out the years.

Looking back to 1997, the line up of performers were some of the greats most of us grew up on.  But for the young bucks reading who weren’t able to witness history, the line up went a little like this.
  • Aaliyah
  • 112
  • Puff Daddy
  • Mase
  • Lil’ Kim
  • The LOX
  • Faith Evans
  • Heavy D
  • Backstreet
  • Mary J. Blige
  • Wu-Tang Clan
  • Bone Thugs N Harmony
Now let’s focus on an artist who influenced the look of baggy boy pants with the Hilfiger boxers rising above her hips to compliment a sexy crop top, Miss Aaliyah Dana Haughton. 1997 was her first time performing at Summer Jam.  Below is a video of her performance check it out & comment your thoughts!
