Reports have Jay-Z and Eminem providing tracks for the soon-to-be-released DJ Hero video game with an "advanced version" of the player forthcoming. Branded by Jay and Em, it's said to feature an expanded controller with a case that expands into a DJ stand and a tie-in to downloadable music/remixes from the two.
"A DJ has the ability to use music to control people's emotions and is responsible for the entire vibe of a room, a club or a party," Mr. Z states. "DJ Hero is the first video game that allows everyone to enjoy the unique experience of creating that environment."
Meanwhile, LA Weekly's Randall Roberts says the pair are performing a surprise show tonight at the Wiltern Theater in L.A.'s Koreatown to promote the release.
