A rumored Eminem appearance in New York became real when the emcee stepped into the Hammerstein Ballroom. The Detroit emcee was there to be a part of the G-Shock 30th anniversary party. During his surprise set, Em explained why he was thankful for his fans and dedicated his performance to others who were also struggling. 

According to several reports, Eminem shared with fans that he “wouldn’t have gotten out of that dark place without y’all.” Em was seemingly alluding to his bouts with addiction. He went on to say that his performance would be “dedicated to anybody tonight who’s been through personal struggles.” 

Slaughterhouse opened up for Slim. Recently, Em made headlines when he announced that he has started working on his new album after being invested in the Slaughter project for quite some time.
