Jay-Z Rumored To Bring Dr. Dre On Stage At Coachella Festival

Anonymous sources close to Aftermath Records told DX that Hova might show "what he's gonna do next" this Friday. Will "Under Pressure" wait?

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.

    If Dre says Detox is good, then Detox must be insane. I think he will finally drop the album. 2010 is shaping up to be Aftermath's year. Eminem, Game, 50 and The Doc seem ready to drop bombs on the music industry. I Hope 50's Black Magic returns to the gritty type Get Rich Or Die Tryin album, i dont see that happening though. I hope Eminem's Recovery is better than Relapse and that he goes back to his normal rap flow. I hope Game keeps up the hustle and improve on his underrated L.A.X album with the R.E.D album. For Detox, i hope its every bit as good as Chronic and 2001. I hope Detox was worth waiting 10 years for. As always with Dre, people will say he fell off, how ni**a his last album was 2001.

    whether dre comes out or not, both artists are doing a great job of building anticipation.. meanwhile jay-z is still moving units of an album that came out last september.. this isn't their first rodeo.. dre is smart enough to know the three headed monster isn't strong enough right now to move units.. he's got to get back with jay and align himself with success.. beats by dre headphones have old sold eminem and fifty's last LP's.. dre needs to bring bang for buck if he's gonna move units of an album.. digital era has a choke hold on the industry.. no more 8 million, 10 million, 12 million units sold.. "change the game for these hoes.. change the game like we supposed.. "

      eminem's album to date has out sold jay-z.. what i mean by success of jay-z is the 360 degree marketing of memorabilia, touring, etc. jay-z has the highest grossing tour.. his network is his networth.. and right now that networth is threating security for third world countries.. lmao
