Unfortunately not all big shows can launch their tours in Miami. We get that. But when we heard that last night'sJay-Z
concert in New York -- the first in the new Yankee Stadium -- had a ton of special musical guests, we just had to share some footage we found.
Their special guests included Nicki Minaj, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, D12, Beyonce, Swizz Beatz, Drake, Memphis Bleek, Chris Martin (of Coldplay), and B.O.B. How's that for a mouthful? On top of that, Kanye West showed up with the same bright red suit he wore at the VMAs.
But the artists didn't just sing their own songs -- a lot of them did impromptu remixes with the others. We found videos of Jay-Z with Kanye West and Nicki Minaj, Eminem with Dr. Dre and 50 Cent, and Drake with Jay-Z and Eminem particularly captivating. But what do you think? Check out the videos after the jump, and keep your fingers crossed that they plan a similar show in South Florida soon.
