Fans of infamous rapper Eminem are sure to be aware of his Oscar winning song “Lose Yourself”- which won the 2003 Academy Award for Best Original Song and became the first hip hop song to do so-as well as the equally infamous line from the song that references “mom’s spaghetti”. The line became a meme of sorts -even though the line actually references Eminem’s rap battle nerves causing him to vomit up his mother’s pasta- but Eminem has taken the Internet’s love for this one line and taken it up a notch. Actually, it’s more like one hundred notches. The rapper is officially opening up a restaurant by the name of “Mom’s Spaghetti.” Yes, this is real. Not kidding.
The Detroit News broke the story which isn’t all that surprising as it is where the restaurant will be opening. A commercial also started airing on local television-looking very much like a local TV station commercial, poor quality and all-which advertised spaghetti and meatballs, spaghetti and toast and of course mom’s spaghetti too. Eminem is probably the only person in the world who could take a song line about puking and turn it into a food establishment.
According to the Detroit News, the restaurant will be opening on Wednesday September 29th at 5pm at 2131 Woodward Ave in Detroit. If any readers happen to be in the area, could you pick me up some? Can’t resist me some of that spaghetti.
