LOS ANGELES— Dr. Dre’s powerful rolodex was put to good use for the launch of Beats Music with a concert featuring Eminem, Diddy and Nas.

Nineties hip-hop was the party’s theme Friday night at Los Angeles’ Belasco Theatre. Eminem and Dre closed the night, performing the hits “My Name Is,” ”Forgot About Dre” and “Lose Yourself.”

Paul McCartney, Drake, Selena Gomez and Macklemore were among those who attended.

Mase reunited onstage with Diddy to perform “Mo Money Mo Problems,” while Blackstreet joined Dre for “No Diggity,” which the rapper produced.

Beats Music, a streaming service set to compete with Spotify, iTunes Radio and others, launched Tuesday.

Other performers included Busta Rhymes, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Arrested Development, Method Man, Redman and Scarface.

Eminem’s “Bezerk” is nominated for best rap performance at Sunday’s Grammy Awards.
