It definitely went down tonight in a historical way.  Jay Z and Eminem performed at an invite only concert in L.A. to kick off the new DJ Hero game.  With a release date of October ’09 and being the first day of the E3 Convention, what better way to kick things off than to have two of the hottest rappers in the game on stage together for a suprise show.  Some of the celebs listed to be in attendance included: Aaron Staton (Mad Men), Abbie Cornish, Adam Levine, Adrian Grenier, Aisha Tyler, Ali Larter, Amar’e Stoudemire (Phoenix Suns), Amber Valletta, Amy Smart, Ashley Olsen, Bijou Phillips, Britney Gastineau, Deanna Russo (Knight Rider), Danny Masterson, Jamie Kennedy, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jeremy Piven, John Favreau, Josh Duhamel, Justin Bartha, Keisha Whitaker, Kim Kardashian, Linkin Park, Mark Hoppus (Blink 182), Maroon 5, Marisa Tomei, Mila Kunis, Nia Long, Nicky Hilton, Nicole Richie, Pete Wentz, Regina Hall, Rich Sommer (Mad Men), Robert Downey Jr., Robin Antin, Ryan Phillippe, Ryan Reynolds, Scarlett Johansson, Stacy Keibler, Taraji P. Henson, Taryn Manning, Vanessa Minnillo, Vince Vaughn, Willis McGahee (Baltimore Ravens), Zachary Levi (Chuck).  Dj Skee was in attendance and made sure to shoot his Twitter Followers some hot shots through-out the show.



Warren G, who has an album coming out this year, did a set with Trv$Am.


Many in attendance posted messages on their Twitter’s through-out the show.  One sentiment that seemed to be shared by many of them is that Hov gave the better performance.  I had the pleasure of being in attendance at Jay’s Hanger Tour in the first city he started in, Atlanta, when he came out of retirement.  I may have waited in line for 3 hrs in 40 degree weather starting at 3am to get in, but he did not disappoint.  Was by far one of the hottest concerts I had been to in a long time.  As far as Eminem is concerned though, is it possible that yesterday really did have a negative affect on him?  Is it possible that the whole Sacha Baron Cohen (Bruno) incident knocked the hip hop shock man off his game?

I could imagine how Em might have been feeling a day later.  Everyone talking about whether or not he was or wasn’t involved.  Reliving the sight of Bruno’s naked ass in his face.  The strength and maturity it took for him not to resort to violence.  That’s a lot for any person to handle.  T-Bagged or not he showed up and put on a show like the big boy he is.  I look forward to seeing him be the bigger person out of that whole MTV fiasco.
