Eminem, Jay-Z's Tracks Coming to "DJ Hero Renegade Edition"

October 9, 2009 11:52 AM ET

DJ Hero has announced its massive 93-song in-game track list — which boasts Beastie Boys blended with Foo Fighters and 50 Cent vs. David Bowie — and now Rolling Stone can exclusively reveal the track lists for Eminem and Jay-Z's Renegade compilations that will accompany the DJ Hero Renegade Edition of the game (the Renegade comps aren't playable tracks, but best-of CDs).

Jay-Z's Renegade collection is the first best-of comp of Jigga's career — though there's reportedly talk of another coming in November — so Jay-Z sticks to the hits. Eminem, however, opts for deeper cuts and rarities from his arsenal, including a brand new song called "Taking My Ball" that will feature exclusively on the DJ Hero Renegade disc. Both rappers hand-selected their respective track lists.

"The tracks we put on this disc are mostly overlooked or rarer favorites of mine from all different parts of my career," Eminem said. "I also put a brand new, unheard song on there so even the biggest fan has something new." DJ Hero and DJ Hero Renegade Edition will both be released October 27th, but Slim Shady fans can hear "Taking My Ball" October 16th when the track debuts on Em's Sirius radio station Shade45. In addition to the game itself and the dual hits compilations, DJ Hero Renegade will feature a premium Renegade turntable controller and a hardshell turntable carrying case that converts into a DJ stand.

The Renegade cover art was created by artist Shepard Fairey, who also produced the famous Obama Hope poster as well as the recent Obama cover of Rolling Stone.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
