To help celebrate Summer Jam's silver jubilee, Pabst Blue Ribbon partnered with The FADER to create a unique artist-on-artist mini-series between legendary visual artist Cey Adams and a few of NYC's own who will be performing at MetLife Stadium next month. The first episode features the Staten Island/Brooklyn duo G4 Boyz. Cey and the Gwalla Gang reminisce over the early NYC rappers they would listen to, foregrounding DMX. It ends with G4 explaining how significant it is to them to be hitting Summer Jam's stage as a performer and not just a fan.

Watch the full interview above and stay tuned for the next two episodes featuring Melii and A Boogie.
