Eminem Gets Sirius

Well, thank God for this because surely hip-hop doesn’t have enough outlets on radio, TV, cable, satellite, etc, etc.

Eminem gets his own channel on Sirius satellite radio starting this fall:

    Sirius Satellite Radio said it has teamed up with the Detroit-area rapper – along with his label, Shady Records, and Interscope Records – to create “a cutting-edge hip-hop music and lifestyle channel.”

    Eminem’s DJ Green Lantern will host a weekly show, while Eminem himself and other Shady Records artists will also host occasional shows that will include call-in segments.

    The channel, which does not yet have a name, will feature hip-hop from across the spectrum, not just the two labels, the company said. [AP]

Ah, cutting edge hip-hop, that’ll be different then.

I like Eminem pretty well as an artist – when he’s catchy, he’s very catchy – but his taste in other artists does not bode well for the show. Two words: 50 Cent
