One iconic line from rapper Eminem’s famed song “Lose Yourself” has been transformed into a new restaurant in his native downtown Detroit.
On Wednesday (Sept. 29) the Real Slim Shady opened up Mom’s Spaghetti serving up all things Italian, according to Detroit Free Press. If you are familiar with his 2002 Oscar and Grammy-winning track, then you know how the stand-out line goes.
“His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy,” Em raps in the song, which was written for the soundtrack to his film, 8 Mile. “There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti.”
This isn't the first time that the lyrics turned to a food concept. In 2017, the rapper opened up a Mom's Spaghetti pop-up shop in the Detroit music venue, the Shelter, to promote the release of his album Revival.
Located at 2131 Woodward Ave, in District Detroit across from Comerica Park , the brick and mortar restaurant will open its doors at 5 PM ET on Wednesday (Sept. 29).
The menu is simple and will serve Mom's Spaghetti for $9 or $12 if you add meatballs or $14 if you want vegan meatballs. The ‘Sghetti’ Sandwich is $11. Beverages are $3.
“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,” Paul Rosenberg, Eminem's manager, said 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."
