NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 15, 2007 -- Real Hip-Hop Network (RHN) will sponsor New York’s popular HOT 97 Summer Jam this year. The event will be held on June 3, 2007 (3:00pm) at Giants Stadium. RHN and HOT 97 will be looking for America's Next Rap DIVA, with a competition hosted by Female Hip-Hop Pioneer Nikki D. More information is available at www.rhn.tv. In addition as part of their participation, RHN will also host a pavilion and will team up with Metropolitan Grapevine to present business opportunities thru Digital Marketing, Dream Home and Dream Ride programs.

HOT 97 began producing the Summer Jam Festival four years ago when it became evident that fans wanted their experience at the annual "Super Bowl of Hip-Hop" to last even longer. This special pre-event is fueled by its incredible social and interactive environment. Highlighted by live performances on the Festival Stage, the 3 hour-long event also includes sponsored exhibition areas, themed pavilions, an urban fashion show, and the finals of the Boost Mobile Roc the Mic MC battle. Performers at the HOT 97 Summer Jam Festival have included MOBB DEEP, BEENIE MAN, BABY CHAM, NAUGHTY BY NATURE, and LIL' WAYNE. Last year over 14,000 Hip-Hop fans showed up to enjoy the HOT 97 Summer Jam Festival. Summer Jam sponsors included Boost Mobile, XXL Magazine, Sharing Network, United Credit Adjusters, City Year, Real Hip-Hop and many others.

About The Real Hip-Hop Network

The Real Hip-Hop Network is the first 24-hour cable channel geared toward real hip-hop lifestyle & culture. RHN's core focus is on the 18-34 year old Hip-Hop thrill seeker who embraces the excitement, adventure, and exhilaration embedded in the Hip-Hop lifestyle. RHN will deliver not only the hottest commercial acts on the scene today, but also give you the pure power found in the essence of underground hip-hop, featuring the best of the grass roots and the international music scene. RHN brings a side of Hip-Hop ignored by the other music channels celebrating the elements and principles that launched hip-hop's golden era: Dee-Jaying, Emceeing, Break-dancing and Graffiti Art.

This was a time when Hip-Hop artists were the urban street correspondents, delivering soul stirring and thought provoking commentary on the issues of the day. Hip-Hop became an outlet for the pain, struggles, and dreams of those who were a part of its experience. This is what can be defined as real hip-hop. Hip-Hop has been proven to have massive commercial appeal. RHN provides the world with an engaging, fresh alternative. The Real Hip-Hop Network takes everything the world loves about hip-hop and challenges the negative images media has made pervasive. RHN operates on a higher standard. We put the "Real" in Real Hip-Hop and give the world a mature more gritty choice unavailable on any network before or since RHN. Hip-Hop will be globally redefined the RHN Way. www.rhn.tv
