Eminem took home best rap album at the Grammy Awards on Sunday. He said upon accepting the honor, “Yo, man. Instead of me coming out here and thanking the people that I usually thank and whatever, because all those people who had something to do with my album know who they are, I made me a little list of emcees that I wanted to name off that inspired me to bring me where I am today, you know. Because honestly, I wouldn’t be here without them. So the list goes like this, and it’s not in this order, but the list is this: Run-DMC, the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Kool G Rap, Master Ace, Big Daddy Cane, Dr. Dre, everyone in N.W.A., Tupac, Jay-Z. Thank you because I learned from all of you. Thank you.”
