Sirius Satellite Radio said it has teamed up with the Detroit-area rapper – along with his label, Shady Records, and Interscope Records – to create “a cutting-edge hip-hop music and lifestyle channel.”

Eminem’s DJ Green Lantern will host a weekly show, while Eminem himself and other Shady Records artists will also host occasional shows that will include call-in segments.

The channel, which does not yet have a name, will feature hip-hop from across the spectrum, not just the two labels, the company said.
