Eminem Makes Partnership With Shady Records And Genius Official
Still look up the lyrics to your favorite song so you can be on point anytime it comes on? Well even some of the best rappers tend to do the same when it comes to hits made by their fellow lyricists and Eminem is no different. On Wednesday (Nov. 4), the founder of Shady Records reportedly announced an official partnership between the label and the lyric machine that is Genius.
“Coming up we would always obsess over the lyrics from our favorite MCs. Picking everything apart, trying to get into their heads,” Eminem said in a statement. “I still do that today and Genius helps to make it a worldwide conversation. Pretty amazing to me.” The collaboration between the two will have Genius the official lyric source upon the rapper’s webpage in addition to the online properties of his imprint.
“Any discussion of the greatest rapper of all time has to include Eminem, so working with him and Shady Records is just incredible as a fan,” the co-founder and president, Ilan Zechory, of Genius said. “With Genius we’re trying to create something like a museum of songs. We want to give all the great ‘behind the music’ stories from Eminem a permanent home for fans to enjoy.”
