Eminem among 2022 inductees into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
The 2022 class of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees has been released, offering a star-studded list that will be enshrined in music lore.
And one of the newest additions joining the Rock Hall museum in Cleveland is someone pretty close to Detroit hearts: Eminem.
Also on the list is Pat Benatar, Duran Duran, Eurythmics, and of course everyone’s favorite country music star Dolly Parton.
The newest inductees will be celebrated Nov. 5 in Los Angeles.
“Eminem’s accolades speak for themselves,” read a description of the Hip-Hop artist on the Rock Hall website. “His world-renowned status solidified hip-hop as the most commercially successful music on the planet.”
Among his discography selected with his induction are his albums The Slim Shady LP, The Marshall Mathers LP, The Eminem Show, the * Mile soundtrack, Encore, Relapse, Recovery, and Music to Be Murdered By.
Also inducted is Lionel Richie, Carly Simon, Judas Priest, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Allen Grubman, Jimmy Iovine, Sylvia Robinson, Elizabeth Cotten, and Harry Belafonte. By Jack Nissen
Unbridled controversy. Unparalleled talent. Unmatched superstardom. As the single best-selling artist of the 2000s, a 15-time Grammy winner, and the first artist to have ten consecutive Number One debut albums on the Billboard 200, Eminem’s accolades speak for themselves. His world-renowned status solidified hip-hop as the most commercially successful music on the planet.
HALL OF FAME ESSAY 2022
Look: If you had one shot or one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted in one moment, would you capture it or just let it slip? That’s the question Eminem asked in his 2002 ground-rumbling “Lose Yourself.” It’s also the question lurking throughout his twenty-five-plus years in hip-hop. How do you treat every time like the one time? Nothing can be taken for granted. There’s always somebody ready to take your place. Eminem wants to be loved, but the opposite is okay, because either way you will remember his name. He’s on the prowl and ready to fight for your attention – for a gold record, for a chance to continue. And continue he does. SOURCE
