Eminem & Jay-Z Treat Fans to Star-Studded Surprises at Detroit Show

It’s tough to imagine a concert with two of rap’s most legendary acts surpassing the hype, but that’s what happened at Jay-Z and Eminem’s joint show last night (September 2) in Detroit.

The moment of the evening may have come when Em brought out Dr. Dre in the middle of his set. “Got dammit, Detroit, Do I love you or what? Look what I brought out for you,” Eminem said to the crowd, according to MTV. The legendary West Coast rapper/producer then treated the thousands in attendance to “Still Dre” and “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang.” During his brief appearance, the crowd chanted, “Detox,” letting Dre know that they’re still greatly anticipating the release of his oft-delayed and somewhat mystical third album.

It’s no surprise that the two headliners—two of music’s biggest heavyweights—decided to bring out a slew of other high level guests, as well. Drake, 50 Cent, Young Jeezy and D12 each came out to perform on the night, too. And, of course, both Hov and Slim ran through their lengthy catalogue of hits and fan favorites, from decade old tracks to recent verses.

B.o.B. opened the show, and the XXL Freshman alum’s prediction to yesterday about the event turned out to come to fruition. “This is like hip-hop Woodstock,” he told just hours before the all-star line up graced the stage.

The second of the two Detroit shows will go down tonight (September 3) at Comerica Park, before the concert makes its way to New York’s Yankee Stadium on September 13 and 14.—Adam Fleischer
