The Detroit rapper who doesn’t do many public appearances, came out just for Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine.

Eminem flew to New York on Wednesday night (November 5) for the WSJ Innovator Awards to honor the two veteran record execs who helped to launch his career.

Em joked that he doesn’t come out often, and the only two people who can possibly bring him out from Detroit were these two.

“Dre and Jimmy are like a force of nature,” Slim said at one point during his speech. “As an example of how powerful they are, they had me fly here all the way from Detroit to speak publicly, and I really hate public speaking.”
