TREMONT -

Hundreds of Bronx residents flocked to Tremont Park for a free concert featuring Jadakiss.

The event also featured multiple other performers.

The concert was part of SummerStage, which is produced by the City Parks Foundation. The group has been providing free concerts across the five boroughs all summer.

Organizers say Jadakiss was chosen based on his importance as a hip-hop artist to the Bronx community.

"He's somebody that we all can relate to," one audience member said.

The summer concert series next heads to Manhattan.
