Eminem was never a part of Def Jam Records, but the rapper is going to be part of the celebration when the legendary label is honored by VH1.

Eminem will join Mary J. Blige, DMX, Public Enemy, Kid Rock, the Roots and more when the label is feted at the network's sixth annual Hip Hop Honors.

Def Jam is celebrating 25 years. It is one of the most influential forces in rap. Among the hip-hop legends who were on the label include LL Cool J, Jay-Z and Slick Rick.

VH1's Hip Hop Honors will air on the network Oct. 13.
