, Staff

Jam’n 94.5 has announced the initial lineup for its annual “Summer Jam” concert. Kendrick Lamar will headline the 2014 edition, which will take place at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield on Friday, May 30. Kid Ink, Lil’ Jon, B.o.B., Juicy J and Ty Dolla Sign will also perform at the day-long event.

Tickets for the show, which range in price from $25 to $200, are now on sale through Live Nation. More artists are expected to be added to the lineup over the next few months.

Lamar, who recently earned seven Grammy Award nominations including Best New Artist and Album of the Year, is reportedly working on a new album. No official release date for the follow-up to 2012’s Good Kid, M.A.A.D City has been announced, though he hopes to release it in or around September. Good Kid, M.A.A.D City was powered by hit singles “Swimming Pools (Drank)”, “Poetic Justice” (featuring Drake) and “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe”.

Kid Ink will be promoting his new album My Own Lane. The rising rapper’s second studio effort and first on a major label, debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and at #1 on Billboard’s Rap Albums chart after its release in January. It features singles “Show Me” (featuring Chris Brown) and “Iz U Down” (featuring Tyga).

Last year’s Summer Jam included sets from Chris Brown, Lupe Fisaco, J. Cole, John Hart, Wale, Eve and Kat Dahlia.
