AceShowbiz - Eminem is keeping fans entertained during the coronavirus quarantine with some music of his choice. The Slim Shady has announced that he will be launching his "Music to Be Quarantined By" playlist on his Shade45 SiriusXM Channel on Saturday, May 2.
The three-hour-long special, which is titled after his recent album "Music to Be Murdered By", will first air at noon EST. Encores of the show will air all weekend as well as the following week. Announcing the special on his Instagram page, he wrote, "Join me on @shade45 & listen to what I'm listening to on this lockdown! Starts Sat. @ 12PM EST - listen for free."
According to reports, the playlist will include songs that Em has been listening to while quarantined in his home. It will feature a bunch of classic hip-hop songs from such legendary artists as Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G., Beastie Boys, MC Lyte, Mobb Deep, Nas, Wu-Tang Clan, Run DMC and many others.
Eminem previously teased the playlist earlier this week on "Sway in the Morning". "It's what I wanna hear, basically," he told Sway Calloway on Thursday, April 29. His longtime manager Paul Rosenberg chimed in, "And recommend people to listen to as well."
During the coronavirus crisis, Eminem has been giving back to the community. He has donated loads of his Mom's Spaghetti brand to Detroit healthcare workers and his Marshall Mathers Foundation launched the Love Your DJ campaign to help DJs who saw their income suddenly curtailed by the closure of venues and social gatherings across the globe. The challenge offered Michigan DJs a chance to win $313 cash payments by submitting their own mixes inclusion in the weekend takeover.
The 47-year-old emcee is also teaming up with StockX to give away a rare pair of his Air Jordan 4 x Carhartt collaboration to be auctioned off for COVID-19 relief benefits. Proceeds will go to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
