(AllHipHop News) Superstar rappers Jay-Z and Eminem kicked off the first musical performance to be held at the new Yankees Stadium in the Bronx last night (September 13th). A variety of rappers joined Eminem on the stage during the historic concert, including D12, 50 Cent and B.o.B. Jay-Z performed an electrifying set that thrilled the crowd as well, as guests like Drake, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Coldplay’s Chris Martin and Kanye West joined Jay-Z on the stage. A second and final show will take place tonight (September 14th) at Yankee Stadium. Representatives for Petey Pablo have attempted to explain an incident on September 11th, in which the North Carolina-based rapper attempted to smuggle a stolen pistol on board a flight to Los Angeles. According to a rep for the rapper, the gun belonged to one of his friends. Reps told TMZ.com that Last month, Petey Pablo learned the close friend was going to do something “crazy” with the gun, so the rapper hid the weapon in a luggage bag, out of the friend’s reach. Petey claims he grabbed the bag by mistake, as he was rushing to catch a flight to Los Angeles for the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. Petey Pablo is charged with suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of a stolen firearm. Petey Pablo’s next court date is October 4th.
