The music festival that marks the unofficial start of summer hits the greater NYC area this Sunday. Summer Jam 2017 kicks off at MetLife stadium in Rutherford, New Jersey on June 11th, bringing a hot line-up of R&B and rap artists and guests. If you haven’t added this event to your weekend to-do list yet, here are a couple of reasons why you should:
