Choose a show, and choose wisely: As summer picks up, perhaps the two biggest stadium hip-hop shows of the season fall on the same night, with Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake taking their “Suit and Tie,” grown-but-still-getting-it spectacular to the Bronx’s Yankee Stadium, while Lil Wayne, T.I., and 2 Chainz bring the streets to the suburbs, playing Jones Beach’s beautiful waterfront amphitheater. Our suggestion? Start your night on Long Island, then head to the 40/40 Club for what will likely be a more intimate after-party. Who knows? Maybe your Samsung will help you skip the line. Either way you’re in for a spectacular night!
