3/10/2010 4:18:00 PM
Hasn’t Eminem been essentially MIA for the past decade, or has that just been me ignoring his existence? His music has gotten progressively worse, and apparently his social life hasn’t gotten any more interesting given that I haven’t heard of any death threats or death rumors in regard to him as of late.
Nevertheless, if you happen to be an Eminem fan regardless of my ridicule, you can expect three mixed tracks between him and Jay-Z for DJ Hero
’s next round of downloadable tracks. Three mixes will be available March 18th for the 360 with the PS3 and Wii following on March 25th.
Read on for title and pricing details if you must. The multiplayer video actually doesn’t seem half bad, especially considering the lack of Eminem in it.
