“Do not think that I don’t know where I’m at right now. I’m also honored to be on this fuckin’ stage in the Bronx, the fuckin’ birthplace of Hip Hop.”- Eminem
Last night marked the first of Eminem and Jay-Z’s two sold-out performances at Yankees Stadium in the Bronx. Th performance was a star-studded event that found Hip Hop’s two reigning titans sharing the stage with a plethora of guest artists and zootpatrol was there first hand. I know everyone is hearing how incredible the show was but it truly was a once in a life time event that I am so happy I got to attend. I am not going to bore you with a play by play review because everything I write will end with me just saying how awesome it was.
Highlights for me though was when Dr. Dre came out as well as 50 Cent during Em’s performance. Chris Martin from Coldplay coming out during Jay-z’s set was also a highlight as well as Beyonce doing a song with Hov with jay remarking “Damn that girl is baaaaad.” when she left the stage. I really liked how Jay-Z paid homage to Notorious BIG in a giant way, playing a few Biggie songs before playing a clip of an old interview on Big explaining performing in front of 30,000 people on the big screen, it was a nice touch. From beginning to end it was just unbelievable leaving me getting excited just thinking back on the night. If anyone reads this and does not have tickets for tonight, do yourself a favor and just go to the stadium and scalp them, sell your body if you need to, it’s worth it.
Highlights of this video:
1. How awesome is 50 Cents glow in the dark gear.
2. Dr. Dre telling us he isn’t going to let us down with Detox gave me chills, he is going in HARDDDD.
3. Yankee Stadium looked unreal last night with the sold out crowd bouncing the whole time.
4. Loved how Eminem didn’t have Drake come on stage to do the chorus of Forever live, that talentless ass bag doesn’t deserve to be on the same stage.
Beyonce definitely winked, smiled, and asked me to have sex with her back stage after the show. Unfortunately security didn’t believe me and they wouldn’t let me through, freakin cock blockers.
