Apart from Shady Records, Capitol Music Group, Warner Music Group and other labels have also announced they would align with “Black Out Tuesday”, which is being observed in reaction to the death in police custody of George Floyd.
Taking to Twitter, Marshall Mathers tweeted, "We will be closed on Black Out Tuesday. Join us in fighting for change.".
His tweet contained a statement from his music label that read, "Shady Records will join in the observance of Black Out Tuesday on June 2, 2020.
On this day we will dedicate our time and efforts to help prevent social injustice and explore ways to assist in the fight against racial inequality."
