We all know divas can be divas, but what about rappers and their backstage demands? As Eminem and Jay-Z get ready to perform at Detroit’s Comerica Park and New York’s Yankees Stadium respectively, The Smoking Gun takes a look at the dressing room demands of both artists.
Known as ‘riders’, artists have certain demands before they go on stage to perform. In most cases, all of the demands will be met, and in some cases, they aren’t. We took a look at the documents provided by the Smoking Gun and ran a picture of the craziest item we found on the list along with the rest of the document outlining everything else they needed. It makes us all wonder, dressing room bathrooms don’t always come equipped with ‘soft toilet paper’?
Flip through the pages to find out what Emimen demanded during his Japan tour with D12 and 50 Cent in 2009, then see Jay-Z’s demands from his show at the University of Arizona in 2009.
