Eminem could also be an Oscar- and Grammy-winning rapper, actor and producer. However now the Detroit native can add a brand new title to his repertoire: restaurant proprietor.
Slim Shady, 48, will open his new Italian eatery, known as Mother’s Spaghetti, in his hometown on Wednesday.
And, sure, you learn that proper: The identify Mother’s Spaghetti comes straight from his 2002 single “Lose Yourself,” featured within the movie “8 Mile.”
“His palms are sweaty/Knees weak/Arms are heavy,” Eminem raps within the track. “There’s vomit on his sweater already/Mom’s spaghetti.”
Mother’s Spaghetti first came into the world as a pop-up store on the Detroit music venue the Shelter in 2017 whereas Eminem was selling his album “Revival.”
“We’ve had a lot of fun putting this project together with the folks at Union Joints, and the response from fans has been overwhelmingly positive,” Eminem’s supervisor, Paul Rosenberg, explained in a statement. “The previous pop-ups were really a test for us to determine whether there was enthusiasm for a regularly-occurring Mom’s Spaghetti spot that would be open all year long.”
The brand new hotspot, taking up residence
Among the many choices are the namesake Mother’s Spaghetti for $9, Mother’s Spaghetti with Meatballs for $12 and the ‘Sgetti Sandwich — pasta smushed between two slices of bread — for $11. Yum.
“Mom’s Spaghetti — it’s all ready,” the restaurant proclaims in a promo video.
Clients may also head upstairs from the eatery and hit up The Trailer, a retailer for Eminem followers that options merchandise and memorabilia and is a nod to his “8 Mile” character, B. Rabbit.
In April 2020, the “Stan” singer gave Detroit healthcare workers preventing the coronavirus in hospitals containers of his well-known pasta.
