Drake, Lloyd Banks, & Jazmine Sullivan Get Hyphy in the Bay

Drake

Though he was noticeably absent from the second night of Jay-Z and Eminem’s recent Detroit double-bill, Drake had good reason. The Toronto native headed over to Oakland, Calif., to headline KMEL’s Summer Jam 2010 at Oracle Arena on Saturday (Sept. 4), where he shared the stage with fellow performers Jazmine Sullivan, E-40, Lloyd Banks, Miguel, and more.

Rocking a varsity jacket, cargo pants, and shades, Drizzy showed Cali love by performing hits from his discography, removing his jacket near the end of his set and shouting “Free Weezy!”

Bay Area legend E-40 repped for his Sick Wid It Records imprint, donning a glittery chain that hung over his black tee, while a gorgeous Jazmine Sullivan sang her heart out during her set, looking sharp in a cropped teal jacket, shiny shirt, and ragged jeans.

Lloyd Banks added some NYC flavor to the lineup, taking the stage after newcomers Miguel, Dorrough, Bobby Brackins, YG, and R.O.D. Project warmed up the crowd. Summer may be nearing its end, but check the photos below to see how this group of performers heated things up.

Mary J. Blige and Jazmine Sullivan

Jazmine Sullivan gets help from some heavy hitters on the remix to “Holding You Down (Goin’ in Circles),” the lead single off her sophomore album Love Me Back. With the original beat still intact (and the addition of some Swizz Beatz sirens), the Philly soulstress gets some help from Mary J. Blige, who revives her verse from “Be Happy” before folding in some new lyrics. Guess Jazmine isn’t the only one dealing with man problems, huh? Be on the lookout for her new album, dropping this fall.

Jazmine Sullivan

Jazmine Sullivan goes back in time in the video for “Holding You Down (Goin’ in Circles),” the first single off her sophomore album Love Me Back. Directed by Marcus Raboy, the clip shows the Philly native on the block, standing in front of a stoop and rocking glittery pants, a beige jacket over a white shirt, and heels. But she later takes it back to the ’80s by throwing a house party, where she’s joined by Doug E. Fresh, Pepa from Salt-N-Pepa, Pete Rock, Kwame, and Missy Elliott, who produced the track.

The video is slated to premiere on VEVO on August 30 ahead of the album’s fall release. Word to ya mother.

Single Cover: Jazmine Sullivan – ‘Holding You Down (Goin’ in Circles)’

Holding You Down (Goin' in Circles)

Jazmine Sullivan proved to be one of R&B’s most promising new acts when she released her soul-speckled debut Fearless in 2008, but she’s ready to seal the deal with round two. The revised cover artwork for the 23-year-old chanteuse’s single “Holding You Down (Goin’ in Circles),” the lead track from her sophomore album Love Me Back, just hit the net, framing the Philly native in a gorgeous sepia tone. In preparation for her sophomore joint’s October release, Sullivan is gearing up to release a remix for the track featuring Swizz Beatz and Mary J. Blige, who she’ll be supporting as opening act on her upcoming fall tour.
