Rapper Eminem will grace his own Sirius XM Radio channel Shade 45 with his presence yet again this year with two uncensored interviews set to air on Saturday and Tuesday.
The iconic rapper will sit down with DJ Whoo Kid on Saturday, October 3rd at 3pm ET, during the G Unit Saturdays program.

Eminem will talk in-depth about his highly-anticipated upcoming album, Relapse 2, his performance at the Voodoo Festival in New Orleans on October 30th and his role in developing the new video game [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0028Y4PVG?ie=UTF8&tag=orbitcast-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B0028Y4PVG"]DJ Hero[/ame], scheduled to be released on October 27th.

Then on Tuesday, October 6th at 9pm ET, Eminem will speak with Shade 45's DJ Tony Touch as part of the Toca Tuesdays show on Tuesday.

Back in May 2009, Eminem graced Shade 45 with his presence by sitting down with Shade 45's Reef for a three-hour interview. During the interview, Eminem took listeners on a guided tour through the making of the chart-topping album, offered commentary on his return to the music scene while overcoming tragedy, loss and confronting his own personal demons.

Shade 45 (Sirius channel 45 and XM channel 66) is celebrating its fifth-year on satellite radio, having first debuted in late October, 2004.

Blah! If that station actually played music, it might be tolerable to listen to.

Most of the times when I turn 45 on, it's DJs jaw-jackin' in some strange lingo that I don't understand at all. If it just played current rap and/or R&B, I could get into it on a limited basis.

I also really wish instead of the featured DJ or program on the PTT(?), they'd actually list the song like every other damn channel.

Meh, I bet people enjoy this channel and tune in regularly - what ever makes the Sirius|XM world turn, I guess.

This could be the coolest channel if Eminem ever put in one 1/10th of an ounce of effort but you pretty much nailed it from your review above.

Whenever I turn it on it just sounds like total chaos and sounds like there are about 17 people in the studio. Hip Hop Nation is a MUCH better station. See, as big of a name Eminem is, I think if you give somebody like JAY-Z a channel then he will work to make sure it is perfect.

How the hell did Em ever get offered a channel? Was he really that big in 2004?

I guess he did come off a pretty large success of The Eminem Show album. I dunno, sort of a bust for me.

Offering Young Hova a channel would be a good idea, I think, Vargas.

But hell, why not give some empty bandwidth to Lady Gaga or Beyonce.

I can't see Beyonce showing up to work on a channel.

Lady Gaga might. God, can you imagine what an androgenous mess a Lady Gaga run channel would be?

I just saw this on Orbitcast and really thought it rang true and reiterated what we were saying:

I just might tune in for a little bit just to see if I can interpret any of the jive ass conversation with "DJ Whoo Kid" (WTF), which I suspect will go down as one of the most inarticulate, unintelligible mano a mano epic throw downs in ebonics history. I jus gots ta sey one thang, America - U BIN PUNKED!!!

And no, I'm not Steve O
