1. Hot 97 DJ, Rosenburg, says during pre-show that Nicki’s Starship is wack bullshit and not hip hop. He then proceeds to being out Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q & A$AP Rocky onto pre-show stage.
2. Wayne hears this and tweets Young Money will not be at Hot 97
3. Car blows up in the parking lot cuz someone didn’t probably extinguish burning coal from cooking out (lol )
4. Waka Flocka jumps in the crowd and walks through it for a good 20 minutes. He then jumps back on stage and says I must be in NY because I’m missing all his stuff.
5. Meek Mill is THAT dude and generated more excitement then Rick Ross (just an observation)
6. Nas pulls together a last minute throwback set with Lauryn Hill in place of Nicki.
7. Tyga performs as planned
8. J. Cole, Big Sean (and his momma) and Miguel pretty much tore it down
