Eminem & Jay-Z Announce Two Co-Headlining Performances

Breaking: The two "Renegades" tell ESPN's Wednesday Night Baseball crew that they'll perform September 2 and 13 in New York and Detroit.

Moments ago, Jay-Z and Eminem appeared on ESPN's Wednesday Night Baseball at Detroit's Comerica Park. In game two of the day-night double-header, the duo watched the game from a private box, joined by Royce Da 5'9''. During the fourth inning, both announced to the ESPN staff that they were using the backdrop of baseball to do special performances on a co-headlining bill.

On September 2 at Yankee Stadium in New York, followed by September 13 at Comerica, Em and Jay will host co-headlining concerts. Jay will open for Eminem in Detroit, while the Shady Records founder will open for Jay-Z in New York.

Asked if the duo will make a new music collaboration since 2001's "Renegade," Jay-Z waved off the question, stating that music must come "naturally."

Additionally, the Roc Nation head spoke about his Yankees World Series performance with Alicia Keys last year, while Eminem stated that he was taking in an interest in the Detroit Tigers again after years removed from baseball.

  • CAN'T....BAN......DUKE....... BOY

    Why Jay is dick ridin Em.........nobody wanna see Jay dick ridin Em in concert the fans wanna see them get back in the booth again........Its ashame Renegades came in 2001 and they haven't spit on the same track since......Thats because Jay is scared

  • HollaLeujah

    Ofcourse Jay-Z doesnt wanna collab with Eminem. Do you remember what Em did on Renegade. That's the same reason he doesn't wanna diss rappers anymore. Remember what Nas did on Ether? But that doesn't make him a bitch, it just means he's smart. But I'm sure people who collab with Eminem alway ask him to downplay his artistic side so they don't look as bad.

    • dolo4sure

      What a bullshit comment you just made. Lil Wayne's entire style is influenced by Jay z. Lil Wayne is week. his lyrics have no depth. i would imagine you are probably a teenager because grown folks that listen to real music know Lil Wayne still has to develop past some of his verses that just don't seem to make sense. Also Drake writes Lil Waynes shit!

  • AngryJoe

    Kill that noise about Jay being "scared." I wouldn't want to hear a half-assed, phoned-in, forced collabo just because the fans are screaming for it. The production has to be right, the concept has to be there, and the motherfuckin star have to align.

  • nastynas4life

    • BJAB

      Your Birdman verse really isn't helping your point... Don't feel bad though. There are a lot of people out there with shitty taste, just like yours. And I agree with TRUTHBETOLD. Suicide may not be a bad choice.

    • truthbetold89

      I suggest suicide....................I mean what are you still doing alive with a list like that?

  • a pimp named slickback.

    Em isn't better than everyone, but everyone is nervous about doing a track with him ha. he has a tendency to murder you on your own shit...

  • Quick Dick for your Bitch

    as i walk through the valley of the shadow of death new york to cali for the money power and respect its a journey some get left behind cuz in life you cant press rewind NAS------ strong will continue cop that DISTANT RELATIVES 5/18/2010

    • a pimp named slickback.

      speaking of huge shows, I saw Nas/Damian do some of distant relatives headlining Rock the Bells last summer. So my anticipation for this album has been growing for a year.... I've heard slightly more than half the leaked album and my expectations have been exceeded

    • a pimp named slickback.

      no doubt copping it day one. Reflection Eternal droppin the same day. doesn't sound nearly as good as Distant Relatives tho

  • curbstompa

    i'd rather go to the NY show so i can leave after Em is done.

  • ITZ YA BOI

    yea Jay-Z definitely scared lmao, of course he was the one to "waive" it off, he still think Em can take him. Personally I thought Jay could take Em a few months ago up until Em released that Over+Beemer Benz Or Bentley freestyle and his new single, now I think Shady would destroy Jay again

  • jboog61

    WHATS UP WIT EM AN FIFTY?

  • Illness:O

    Jay-Z's scared to get murked on his own track again hahaha
