The Marshall Mathers Foundation launched Eminem’s Love Your DJ, a special opportunity that’ll run from now through Wednesday, April 29. Eminem made the announcement on the Sway in the Morning show on his exclusive SiriusXM channel, Shade45 (Ch. 45), that his foundation will be offering a support opportunity, which will aid Michigan DJs who may have been financially impacted by the closure of venues and events due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Love Your DJ will offer DJs from Michigan the opportunity to submit their best custom mixes via a SoundCloud link at siriusxm.com/LoveYourDJ for the chance to have their mix air on Shade45, as well as receive a $313 cash payment, which is an homage to the Detroit area code. The first 500 qualified entries, in accordance with the rules, will receive the $313 cash prize. Of the first 500 entrants, 15 grand prize winners will be selected by a panel of judges from Shady Records to receive a chance for their mix to air on Shade45 as a part of the Love Your DJ Mixshow Takeover beginning May 2. Mixes will be judged on sound quality, originality, and texture of the entry, as it fits within the sound of Shade45 programming on SiriusXM. Mixes from the selected winners can be heard on Eminem’s Shade 45 channel on SiriusXM beginning on Saturday, May 2 at 10am ET.

Shade45 is available to subscribers nationwide on most SiriusXM radios, and is available to everyone – including anyone who is not already a SiriusXM subscriber – on the SiriusXM app and connected devices as part of SiriusXM’s recently announced free streaming access period.
