Z 107.9 Summer Jam Cleveland Tickets
Cleveland’s Z 107.9 station is billing its own Summer Jam as the “concert of the year”, and for pretty good reason. This show, at the Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica, is averaging $123.76 on the secondary market. The show headliner is Young Jeezy, who is most famous for his classic 2005 hit “Soul Survivor”. He has released three studio albums: Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101 (2005), The Recession (2008), and most recently Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition (2011). He has been nominated for 3 different Grammys for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. Also performing are singer The-Dream, best known for his single “Shawty is a 10”, Machine Gun Kelly, famous for “Wild Boy”, and breakthrough artist Ca$h Out, whose song “Ca$hin Out” is rising up radio charts at the moment.

Summer Jam 2012 Pittsburgh Tickets
Pittsburgh’s very own summer jam is not associated with any specific radio station, but the event’s official site boasts of returning some of hip-hop’s biggest stars to the city after six years of waiting. Featured here is Rick Ross “The Boss”. Ross is very hot right now, in fact earlier this year MTV named him the “Hottest MC in the Game.” Ross burst onto the stage in 2006 with his hit “Hustlin'” and has not looked back ever since. He was nominated for Best Male Hip Hop Artist at the 2011 BET Awards and has released four studio albums to date: Port of Miami (2006), Trilla (2008), Deeper Than Rap (2009), and Teflon Don(2010). His next album, God Forgives, I Don’t, is set to be released later this year. Also included in the lineup are Tyga of YMCMB and “Rack City”/“Faded” fame, 2010 BET Best New Artist-nominated Wale, and MTV’s 7th Hottest MC in the Game, best known for “Ima Boss”, Meek Mill.

Hot 98.3 Summer Jam Tucson Tickets

The Hot 98.3 Summer Jam 2012 in the Tucson, AZ has the distinction of being the summer jam with the biggest name as a headliner. J. Cole will be coming to the Tucson Arena to perform alongside Baby Bash, YG, Travis Porter, and E-40, but the North Carolina native will almost certainly steal the show. Fresh off the success of his debut album release in fall 2011, Cole World: The Sideline Story, Cole is already one of the biggest rappers in The Game. Cole World debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 and led to a Grammy nomination for Cole for Best New Artist. Cole has also released three famous mixtapes, The Come Up, The Warm Up, and Friday Night Lights. Cole’s biggest single off of Cole World is “Work Out”. Joining Cole on stage will be Baby Bash of “Suga Suga” fame, “Toot It and Boot It” rapper YG, high energy “Bring It Back” and “Ayy Ladies” rapper Travis Porter, and “Tell Me When To Go”‘s E-40.
