Meek Mill is staging his comeback this festival season.
Fresh off of his first performance since being released in jail at Miami’s Rolling Loud festival, rapper Meek Mill has been announced as a performer for this year’s Hot 97 Summer Jam music festival. The radio station revealed the news via Twitter.

This is his first formally announced appearance as Mill surprised fans with his short set at Rolling Loud last weekend. XXL Mag reports the rapper stating while crashing DJ Khaled’s set,
“It feel good to be back and free in front of the motherfuckin’ people,” he said. “I want to say thank you for everyone who supported Meek Milly. They tried to take my freedom. They tried to crush my dreams. But now we in Miami.”
Hot 97 is also pleased to see him back on the stage. DJ Ebro Darden of the station’s morning show said,
“We are happy to welcome our man Meek Mill is to the Summer Jam stage. He has been through hell and what he needs is mad love and our continued support.”
In addition to announcing that he would be joining their festival lineup this summer, Hot 97 also announced that the station will be donating $10,000 “to the Justice League NYC to support their fight for criminal justice reform,” a cause that is very close to Meek Mill’s heart after his recent incarceration.
Joining Meek Mill at the festival June 10th in East Rutherford, NJ will be Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Ferg, Lil Wayne, Tory Lanez, who joined Mill during Rolling Loud, Swizz Beatz, Remy Ma, Rich The Kid and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie.
However, the lineup is still being announced, which means even more surprises are in store for attendees.
Keep up with music at Salute.
