Eminem partners with Lyric Website Genius.com

So how many of you have you guys gone to Genius.com to figure out exactly what certain bars in some of our favorite rap songs meant? Be honest…

Well in case you aren’t familiar with Genuis.com, the website is very well known for deciphering lyrics in songs to help the listeners understand the metaphors more clearly.

One of HipHop innovators, Marshall Mathers (aka Eminem), has just recently signed a deal and decided to partner up with the website.

Here’s what Slim had to say about his new business collaboration:

Coming up we would always obsess over the lyrics from our favorite MCs. Picking everything apart, trying to get into their heads. I still do that today and Genius helps to make it a worldwide conversation. Pretty amazing to me.

It seems only fitting considering Shady’s lyrics over the years have been found to be quite controversial. Now he’ll have a hand in clarifying some of the most controversial lyrics in HipHop thanks to this new deal.

Below is an exclusive video of a nostalgic moment where Eminem called into Sway’s first ever show on Shade 45 to congratulate him on his new project:

 

Very exciting times for the team at Shade 45.
