The Rock Hall CEO has huge praise for Eminem’s music.
Eminem is the single best-selling artist of the 2000s, he’s won 15 Grammy Awards, and he’s the first artist to have ten consecutive albums debut at the top of the Billboard 200 chart.
The Rock Hall’s website credits his career as having “solidified hip-hop as the most commercially successful music on the planet.”
Other members of the class include Dolly Parton, Eurythmics, Duran Duran, Pat Benatar, Carly Simon, and Lionel Richie. Other nominees who failed the make the final cut included Beck, A Tribe Called Quest, Rage Against the Machine, Kate Bush, Devo, Fela Kuti, New York Dolls, MC5, and Dionne Warwick.
