Busta Rhymes, Swizz Beatz, Royce 5’9″ & more applaud Eminem for his Rock Hall induction

The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame inducted its 2022 class on November 5, with Eminem, Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie and more joining the prestigious group of musicians.

Legendary producer Dr. Dre, who signed Eminem in 1998, inducted the Detroit emcee into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame with a speech in which the hip-hop mogul reflected on his relationship with Slim Shady.

“Over 20 years ago, Jimmy Iovine, who is also one of tonight’s inductees and one of my best friends, played a demo tape for me from a guy who called himself Eminem. The first thing I said when I heard it was, ‘What the f__k did he just say?’ I loved it so much that I couldn’t stop listening to it.” said Dre.

“A few days later, Jimmy called me and said, ‘You know he’s a White guy, right?’ F____d me up! Looking back, I don’t know why it didn’t cross my mind. He certainly didn’t sound like a Black rapper, especially because of what he was saying. I guess it was my ignorance at the time, thinking that if you’re a really good rapper, you must be Black.” Dre continued.

Following Dre’s induction speech, Eminem delivered a fiery performance with Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler (Sing For The Moment) and Ed Sheeran (Stan). Additionally, Em performed “My Name Is,” “Forever,” “Rap God,” and “Not Afraid.”

Eminem received congratulating messages from his peers, family and friends. The list includes Busta Rhymes, Swizz Beatz, Lazarus, D12’s Kuniva and Bizarre and more. You can check them out below:
