Eminem, Jay-Z to front DJ Hero

Rapper duo make, make the money.

Activision has signed rich and renowned rappers Eminem and Jay-Z to help kick-start the DJ Hero series.

The pair will offer unnamed songs to the first game, and will be the focus of post-release downloadable content later this year.

Eminem and Jay-Z will also compile two CDs of mixes to go into a special edition of the game. This has a "an advanced version" of the DJ Hero turntable peripheral, plus a swanky metal travelling case that doubles as a "performance-ready DJ stand".

DJ Hero launches on PS2, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 later this year. We're expecting to see more at E3, and have only a teaser video with no real gameplay footage apart from character posing to look at.

That said, we do know the game will include around 100 songs, including exclusive work from DJ Shadow.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
