Eminem’s contributions to the world of Hip-Hop cannot be understated in any way. Artists such as Skylar Grey still get starstruck working with him even now. It seems his restaurant finally got the recognition it deserves.
Eminem is also never shy from telling fans about his humble beginnings, as he grew up very poor and portrayed as such in the film 8 Mile. He also previously opened up his own restaurant called ‘Mom’s spaghetti.
It also came as no surprise that Eminem also opened up a merchandise store called ‘The Trailer’ inside his ‘Mom’s Spaghetti’ restaurant. The name comes from the trailer park that Eminem used to live in while growing up.
The New York Times sent a restaurant critic to Detroit in order to check out Eminem’s restaurant. The food joint got critical acclaim for being down to earth and motherly, something that Eminem and Paul Rosenberg wanted to achieve.
This is not Italian cooking, nor does it try to be. Instead, it might be best described as … well, downright motherly. The greasy slop of the pasta, the sugary tang of the red sauce; it’s the spaghetti that emerges from your pantry on the last night before a grocery trip. Mr. Catallo [the co-owner of Union Joints, which operates several restaurants around Detroit, including this one] said the noodles possess an inscrutable leftover chemistry. He means that as an endorsement, and he should.
Eminem’s rags to riches stories remain one of the greatest in rapping history as he truly worked hard to make a name for himself and that will always remain an inspiration for fans and fellow rappers alike.
