Eminem is regarded as one of the most prominent rappers of all time. The Detroit rapper has a long list of accomplishments behind him. Eminem was recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, joining the likes of AC/DC, The Clash, Bob Dylan, the Foo Fighters, and his hero LL Cool J.
Slim Shady was praised in a press release which described him as “the single best-selling artist of the 2000s” with “unparalleled talent” and a “world-renowned status.” Rock & Roll Hall of Fame CEO, Greg Harris had nothing but appreciation for the legendary rapper as he said that Em’s tracks hit as hard as metal.
Eminem stayed quiet on the news of his induction until the early hours of May 8th. Rather than release a statement of acknowledgement or share a tweet gushing over the honor, Eminem used the Minions to help recognize his induction. If you didn’t already know, Minions are yellow characters who work with Gru in the film Despicable Me.
The musician took to Twitter to share a piece of artwork which showed a cartoon version of himself standing in front of a crowd of Minions, most of who stood with their yellow arms crossed and a proud smirk on their face. The scene in itself has no reference to the Hall of Fame, but the caption read: “The Minions congratulate Eminem. Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2022.” Yes he’s thanking his minions in a graphic that we can only hope is a screenshot for an upcoming music video.
Alongside the image, Eminem wrote: “@minions got my back. Shout out to Gru and them…” You can check it out below. This is from the end of the story for Marshall Mathers. Stay tuned to Thirsty.
