Jay-Z Concert Rescheduled for Tonight, KMEL Listeners Irate

Irate callers to Chuy Gomez's morning show on 106 KMEL did the hatchet job on famed East Coast rapper Jay-Z, whose much-anticipated concert with R&B megastar Mary J. Blige did not go down at Oakland's Oracle Arena last night. Due to technical difficulties with production -- according to concert promoters and Oracle Arena's Web site -- the show had to be rescheduled for tonight at 7:30 p.m. ; all tickets for April 20th will be honored for the April 21st performance.

But try telling that to anyone who took off work today, unaware of the postponement until yesterday's late-breaking 2 p.m. announcement. Rumors abounded that the famed Roc-A-Fella mogul had faked, because, well, he probably didn't want to hang out with suckas. What would that mean for Beyonce?
