Wednesday night Eminem will hit the stage at G-Shock's exclusive 30th Anniversary Party at a secret location in New York City. There's even a chance the superstar rapper will debut some fresh tunes from his upcoming album that is rumored to drop sometime this year. However, while a live stream to watch the "Shock The World 2013" event will be available on GShock.com, everything but Slim Shady's performance will be streamed online.
The digital watch company posted a disclaimer on its Facebook page stating that "the Eminem performance will NOT be streamed." As a result, disappointed fans will not get to see if the rap icon decides to "tease" tracks from his new LP, as reported by Enstarz.
The event, which starts at 8 p.m. EST, will also feature performances by DJ Mick Boogie and Shady Records artist Yelawolf. In addition, James Marsden, Jessica Stam and Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez will make appearances as guest speakers.
Eminem performed at the annual event last year as well, but this year he and G-Shock are collaborating to release a new watch called the GDX6900MNM-1.
According to a press release, "The GDX6900MNM-1 timepiece, available this December, takes the newly-revamped XL-6900 watch face and personalizes it with Eminem iconology for a watch that is not only ruggedly functional, but also stylishly streetwise," reports KPopStarz.com.
"An avid watch collector himself, Eminem can be seen wearing G-SHOCK throughout many of his music videos and performances, making this collaboration a natural expression of mutual respect and appreciation. Being one of the most recognized and accomplished hip-hop artists of our time, this limited edition collaborative watch with Eminem crowns a long history of hip-hop partnerships for G-SHOCK," reads the press release.
