He’s the King of Detroit and they’re the Kings of Rock. Sounds like royalty will be in the building next month as Eminem is scheduled to induct Run-DMC into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 4. Em was announced as a participant in the festivities late Friday afternoon (March 20).
According to The Associated Press, Em will join Jimmy Page, the Rolling Stones’ Ron Wood, Flea and Smokey Robinson as presenters during the ceremony, held at the Public Auditorium in Cleveland.
The reclusive rapper is slowly starting to re-enter the public consciousness. Recently, his label, Interscope, announced the rapper would release his forthcoming project, Relapse, on May 19. Slim Shady’s protégé, 50 Cent, told MTV News it was his idea for Eminem to also put out a second album before the year’s up.

Homegrown rapper Drake told MuchNews in an exclusive interview that he will be appearing on Lil’ Wayne’s upcoming rock album. “Wayne’s coming out with a new album, it’s a rock album,” he said. “A complete rock album. I have a song on there.”
Drake says Weezy’s album will be a major musical departure, much like Kanye’s latest. “It’s something different in just that whole 808’s and Hearbreaks, just throwing individuals off.”
In addition to going rock with Wayne, Drake’s got a busy year ahead. He just signed an impressive management deal with the superstar team of Gee Roberson and Kyambo “Hip Hop” Joshua (who manage Kanye West), and Cortez Bryant (who handles Lil’ Wayne). He’ll kick off ’09 touring North America with Weezy, hitting Montreal on Jan. 14 and Toronto on Jan. 15. Then he’ll clean up nice and get ready to attend Grammy weekend.
Drake told MuchNews that he was heading to the studio on Tuesday night to record the last track for his upcoming mixtape So Far Gone. His debut album, Thank Me Later, is due out later this year. At which point, we will indeed thank him.
