Hip-hop history was in Detroit on Thursday (September 2) as Jay-Z and Eminem co-headlined the Motor City’s Comerica Park (home of the D-Town Tigers for the past decade), the first of two shows on consecutive nights.
Not only did Em treat his hometown with an endless string of hits, he pulled off some major surprises. After D12, 50 Cent and the G-Unit — acts that fans likely expected — came out for a performance, Slim Shady pulled off a shocker. Dr. Dre came out, first stunning the people then delighting them with smashes.
“Got dammit, Detroit. Do I love you or what?” Eminem asked his fans. “Look what I brought out for you.”
Jay added: “I know y’all going through a lot, but Detroit has heart and Detroit will be back!”
The ‘Home and Home Tour’ continues Friday night at Comerica Park and head to the Bronx, New York, on September 13 and 14 at Yankee Stadium.
