No denying it – Eminem deserves his Hall of Fame induction!

I’m not an expert on him by any means but when 8 Mile came out I became a fan of Eminem. All the greatest in that genre give him credit and more. I still don’t follow the genre, to be honest, but I hear Em (or is it M?) and my ears stick up and I gotta listen…

Watch the induction. It’s a really great show. (Can’t understand what he says at the end cuz the recording stinks? Here’s the transcript.
