Photographing Hot 97 Summer Jam 2018 featuring Kendrick Lamar"
On June 10th, 2018, I, Sean Lassiter, had the opportunity to shoot the annual Hot 97 Summer Jam concert on behalf of hiphopsince1987.com. This was a huge opportunity for me as a photographer, and I was thrilled to be a part of such a major event in the hip-hop world.
Held at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the concert featured some of the biggest names in hip-hop, with Kendrick Lamar as the headlining act on the main stage. Other acts that performed on the main stage include Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, and Meek Mill. The festival stage featured performances from acts such as N.E.R.D, Teyana Taylor, and A$AP Ferg.
As the official photographer for hiphopsince1987.com, I had access to the stage and VIP areas, allowing me to capture unique and intimate moments of the performers. One of the highlights of the night for me was getting to photograph Kendrick Lamar's set. He is known for his electrifying live performances and I was excited to capture that energy in my photographs. I was able to shoot him performing his hit songs like "HUMBLE", "DNA" and "Alright" which were crowd's favorite. The crowd was going wild and it was an amazing experience to be able to capture that kind of energy in a photograph.
I also had the chance to photograph other big names such as Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Meek Mill. I also had the chance to capture the behind the scenes moments, from the performers getting ready to the crowd enjoying the concert.
Overall, it was a memorable experience for me, being able to photograph such a huge event and being able to share those photos with the world through hiphopsince1987.com was an amazing opportunity. Check out some of the images below!
