Eminem is giving back to his hometown of Detroit and the hardworking healthcare workers at the Henry Ford Health System by donating his “mom’s spaghetti.”
A rep for the Henry Ford Health System posted a picture of the donation they received from the rapper to Instagram, thanking him for his help. "Our #HealthcareHeroes "lost themselves" in the delicious Mom's Spaghetti donated by Detroit's very own, @eminem. Thank you for providing a special meal for our team members!”
Of course, "Mom's Spaghetti" is a signature dish associated with the rapper. The reference is drawn from the 8 Mile hit "Lose Yourself " where the MC raps, "His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy/There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti/He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready/To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgettin.’” Well… you know the rest.
In 2017, Em opened a Mom's Spaghetti pop-up shop in his hometown, allowing fans to taste the delicious signature dish and purchase themed merch. The Marshall Mathers Foundation along with Union Joints - the restaurant group that Em partnered with for his past festival pop-ups - will be providing meals to Detroit healthcare workers over the next few weeks.
Em is just the latest of a long list of celebrities to use his resources and platform for pandemic relief. Megan Thee Stallion donated money and supplies to the Park Manor Nursing Facility and Rihanna and JAY-Z followed up their initial pledge with an additional combined $6 million.
Eminem has yet to post anything on his social media confirming the donation. However, the spaghetti has a label that reads 'Thank you Frontline Caregivers' with a a Shady logo beneath.
