Nearly four days tardy on last week’s promise to unveil “Under Pressure” as lead Detox single, Dr. Dre and Jay-Z may have something else up their sleeve. The past collaborators may commemorate the reunion (and Dr. Dre’s return) with a joint performance at this weekend’s Coachella Festival in Indio, California. Sources close to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Records anonymously told HipHopDX that the Compton’s finest may share the stage with Brooklyn’s finest during Jay’s headlining Friday April 16 performance.
These rumors have yet to be substantiated in any way, and that source also said that scheduling conflicts remain in the way. Previously, Jay-Z has built a reputation for special guests, between Nas in 2005, as well as Michael Jackson at 2001’s Summer Jam.
Dr. Dre, who rarely performs as of late, is veteran to several legendary Rap tours, most recently 2000’s Up In Smoke Tour featuring members of N.W.A., Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Westside Connection and others. To date, Dr. Dre has yet to perform at a festival of this kind.
HipHopDX will keep you updated.
