Inspired by Marshall’s acceptance speech at the Rock Hall induction, Spotify put together 102 songs recorded by rap artists Eminem mentioned during the ceremony.
The shout-out he made is unparalleled and reveals how deeply Marshall feels about the culture:
I’m a high school dropout with a hip hop education, and these were my teachers.
They can teach anyone a lot. and Eminem, being not only a student of hip hop but one of the masters, wants everybody to learn from them as well. He shared a link to the playlist on his social media:
