xL Shade 45 is Eminem's hip-hop music station on Sirius XM Radio channel 45 and Dish Network channel 6045.


Eminem established his own channel, Shade 45, that plays uncut hip-hop from artists like Eminem, 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar, Dean Holmes aka BSD, Dr. Dre, Kanye West, Action Bronson, Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, Tech N9ne, & Schoolboy Q.[1] Eminem also established a new morning show, Sway in the Morning, a lively morning show that airs at 8:00 a.m. Monday-Friday.[2][3]

Eminem promoted the station in a 2004 mock national convention (the "Shady National Convention") at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City,[4] in which future President of the United States Donald Trump endorsed him.[5] On his Revival (2017), Eminem expressed his regret at having collaborated with Trump, rapping, "wish I would have spit on it before I went to shake his hand at the event."[6]
