Eminem has officially been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and used his acceptance speech to say why he shouldn't have been there.
Speaking very briefly on it, Eminem, 50, said the experience 'kind of sucked', but the 'drugs were f*cking delicious.' Check it out here:
Joking about his dark history with drug addiction, he said: "I thought we had a good thing going, man.
"But I had to go and f*ck it all up and take too many. God damn."
He added: "Okay Hailie open your ears.
Elsewhere in his speech, Em called out a seriously long list of rappers who influenced him over the years, who he hopes will be considered for future Hall of Fame inductions "because without them, a lot of us wouldn't be here."
He shared: "This induction is meant to be me, talking about myself and shit but f*ck that. I would not be here without them.
"I’m a high-school dropout with a hip-hop education and these were my teachers."
It was Eminem's mentor and collaborator Dr Dre who got to induct him into the Hall of Fame, recalling how he knew immediately that the rapper's "gifts were undeniable".
He joked that he couldn't believe it when he first got the call to find out that Eminem was, in fact, white. "That completely f*cked me up", he confessed.
Despite the discouragement he got from other higher-ups in the music industry, Dr Dre said that he always had confidence in the 'Not Afraid' rapper.
“Each of us was what the other one needed and I was willing to bet my entire career on it", he stated.
After he was officially inducted, Eminem performed a few of his songs including 'My Name Is', 'Forever', and 'Stan', with the help of special guests Ed Sheeran and Steven Tyler.
Also inducted into the Hall of Fame last night were Carly Simon, Duran Duran, Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, Eurythmics, Judas Priest, and Pat Benatar.
The full Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will air later this month on HBO.
