To celebrate 25 years in the game, rapper Busta Rhymes brought a slew of his celeb friends to turn up for Hot 97’s “Hot For The Holidays” concert, presented by Footaction, held at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey last night.

One of the highlights of the evening involved soulful R&B songstress Mary J. Blige and Lil Kim serving up some black girl star power to perform their classic hit “I Can Love You.”

The crowd went CRAZY when Kim hit the stage. The crowd enjoyed every single second of their performance and both ladies appeared to have enjoyed the sisterly reunion. Loves it.

Busta Rhymes was full of surprises, one of them being his homie Mariah Carey.

After falling ill and being rushed to the hospital for the flu a few days ago, MiMi pushed through and hit the stage to perform “I Know What You Want” with the Brooklyn emcee and Flipmode Squad. Check it:

Busta brought out his former bandmates Leaders of the New School AND A Tribe Called Quest (with Diddy also hitting the stage) to create a special moment in Hip Hop. YAS! The rap stars entertained the crowd with their classic throwback track “Scenario” and added a remix as well. Check it:
