99 JAMZ Brings the Game to Revolution Live
“Our 99 JAMZ Uncensored are legendary,” says on-air personality Supa Cindy. Though she may be biased, the concert series presented by one of Miami's most popular hip-hop stations has become something to mark down on your calendar. “I think they get more exciting," Cindy says.

Recently, the station announced that the Game will be the next artist to hit the Uncensored stage on Wednesday, September 14. The L.A. rapper is sure to put on a memorable show.

After kicking the series off right with Rick Ross, 99 JAMZ has been able to keep the hype going, featuring other major artists like 50 Cent, Fat Joe, and Trick Daddy. Unfortunately, the only way in the door is to win tickets by calling into the station. But there's still time left, so tune in and get your cell phone ready.
