As pointed out by Detroit Daily News, the Grammy-winning rapper is preparing to open a restaurant inspired by the not-so-appetizing lines in his 2002 hit “Lose Yourself”: “His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy,” he raps in the first verse. “There’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti.”
Em, a Motor City native, will open the Mom’s Spaghetti diner next week in Downtown Detroit, offering stans simple dishes like the s’ghetti sandwich and, of course, spaghetti and meatballs. Patrons can also shop at “The Trailer”—an attached retail spot stocked with Eminem merchandise.
A commercial for the eatery began airing on Detroit TV stations on Friday. The 30-second spot provides a glimpse of the new restaurant and shows Eminem holding the fare while standing over the Detroit skyline. The ad also directs viewers to call 313-888-8388, which leads to an information recording.
