Eminem and Dr. Dre have always done wonders for the rap community. Eminem is all booked in his busy schedule in 2022. The most significant contemporary visual artists re-imagine 57 Interscope album covers, 10 of them belong to Eminem.
According to Eminem.news, The “Artists Inspired by Music: Interscope Reimagined” project will be presented as an exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) as well as a limited run of 100 vinyl copies of Interscope albums and singles with new, re-imagined covers.
Some of the label’s biggest and most influential groups, rappers, and singers on the list include Dr. Dre, 2Pac, U2, Eminem, 50Cent, Lady Gaga, Mary J. Blige, Bille Eilish, Timbaland, and Kendrick Lamar. Eminem is the only musician whose entire discography influenced renowned artist Damien Hirst.
According to Billboard, Steve Berman, vice chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M, shared his thoughts on the artwork.
“While this groundbreaking art exhibit will be on view at LACMA only for a limited time, we thought launching a series of limited-edition vinyl to honor both our recording artists and the extraordinary visual artists who contributed pieces to this effort, would be a great way for this celebration to live on for years, and at the same time was a cool way to invite music fans into the Interscope’s 30th celebration.”
From January 27 to January 31, the albums will be released in batches each day. Each is packaged in a custom Gucci box with a numbered archival quality giclee printed cover. The cost is not surprising, a customer should be able to pay $2,500 for an album.
The Iovine and Young Foundation, which is constructing a school in South Los Angeles, receives 100% of the project’s net profit.
Dr. Dre, by the way, sat as a knight in shining armour for an oil painting that is now the new cover of his classic album “Chronic 2001.” The glitz and glam of Eminem’s career never seem to fade. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
