Eminem Wins at Detroit Music Awards
Detroit is showing Eminem some love. The platinum rapper swept the Detroit Music Awards last Friday (April 15), honored with three of the night's biggest trophies. Additional winners at the fête included Insane Clown Posse and Ty Stone, a protégé of Motor City native Kid Rock.
Of the evening's awards, Slim Shady, who was not on hand to accept his statues, won for Outstanding National Major Label Recording for his 2010 release 'Recovery.' Additionally, his single 'Not Afraid' was voted as the winner for Outstanding Single, while its accompanying video nabbed Outstanding Video with a budget over $10,000.
Eminem's nemesis Insane Clown Posse walked away with Distinguished Achievement Award and performed at the end of the ceremony, which took place at the Fillmore in downtown Detroit. Ty Stone was the biggest winner, scoring six awards including Outstanding Country Songwriter, Outstanding Country Vocalist, Top Rock/Pop Songwriter and more.
This marks yet another milestone for the 'Love the Way You Lie' rapper. Earlier this year, he became one of the few artists to reach over 1 billion views on YouTube and received the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album at this year's ceremony.
