Jay-Z, Eminem, join DJ Hero, special version announced

Rap stars Jay-Z and Eminem will contribute their popular songs to DJ Hero and will also contribute on a special branded version of the game. Their version will include an "advanced version" of the game's turntable controller, which also has a metal traveling case that converts to a DJ-ready stand. If that wasn't enough, this version also includes two music CD compilations featuring works from both artists.

“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,” said Jay-Z. “DJ Hero is the first video game that allows everyone to enjoy the unique experience of creating that environment.”

“I came up doing freestyle battles on local stages with other MCs and DJs,” said Eminem. “DJ’ing is an essential part of hip-hop and DJ Hero will give people all over the chance to experience the music from the other side of the turntables.”

Both artists will both provide music for exclusive downloadable content later this year for DJ Hero.

Wow, what a big development. These artists will serve as huge endorsers for DJ Hero. I'd hate to be the DJ game going up against DJ Hero!
