French Montana Brings Out Lil Wayne & Rick Ross To Perform “Pop That” At 2013 Summer Jam

Last night, French Montana brought out Lil Wayne and Rick Ross during his set to perform “Pop That” at Hot 97’s 20th annual Summer Jam in New Jersey. French also performed “I’m A Coke Boy” with Chinx Drugz, “Ocho Cinco“, and “Bugatti” with Ace Hood and DJ Khaled.

I watched a stream of the full show yesterday and I did not see the crowd get as hyped for any other artist like they did for when Tune came out. He was also the last performer at the concert, so you know – save the best for last!
