Could the real Slim Shady please stand up and bow? Rapper Eminem went from artist to entrepreneur after opening his restaurant, Mom’s Spaghetti. The pop-up’s name is inspired by his hit song “Lose Yourself.”.
Eminem (Marshall Bruce Mathers III) is a hit hip-hop artist who has dominated the charts since his musical debut in 1999.
It seems he lives a life away from the media most of the time. However, it has been reported that the American rapper is currently working on new music projects which are rumored to be released in 2022.
But Eminem has more than one talent and opened a restaurant back in 2017.
HITC explains the meaning behind Mom’s Spaghetti and how Eminem may have increased his fortune with the big company.
Mama’s Spaghetti: Copywriter to Entrepreneur
It’s normal for celebrities to use their influence and popularity to build businesses outside of their artistic careers.
Eminem helped cement his name in the showbiz space when he decided to share his story on the big screen. With his film 8 Mile, the rapper wanted to show how he really felt growing up in Detroit.
What made his semi-autobiographical film even more personal was the fact that its soundtrack featured original songs, including the hugely successful Lose Yourself.
Aside from remixing, what else can you do with such a successful song? A pop up restaurant. This is how Mom’s Spaghetti started business in 2017.
The inspiration came from the iconic lyrics in the song.
“His palms are sweaty, his knees weak, his arms heavy,
There’s already vomit on his sweater, mom’s spaghetti“
Is there anything better than affordable food, exclusive merchandise and a chance visit from Eminem himself? I do not think so.
Mom’s Spaghetti pop-up restaurants
Four years later, the icon decided to surprise fans for a limited time in Detroit with Mom’s Spaghetti pop-up restaurant.
Again, the pop-up didn’t need an explanation of what the restaurant would be serving during its opening. But yes, it was also vegan-friendly.
Corresponding People, served with a loaf of delicious toasted garlic bread, Mom’s Spaghetti “consisted of stir-fry pasta tossed in tomato sauce and dusted with classic canned parmesan powder; and Mama’s spaghetti with beef or vegan meatballs.”
The rapper himself even stopped by to serve customers. A treat for customers ordering takeaway. He also wasn’t shy when it came to taking selfies with the real Slim Shady.
Earlier this year, a week before his big Super Bowl halftime gig, Eminem teamed up with Postmates to bring Mom’s Spaghetti to Los Angeles for Super Bowl weekend.
The success led to the star opening a permanent location for the restaurant in Detroit.
Eminem’s net worth and impressive net worth
When it comes to someone as famous as Eminem, their net worth speaks for itself.
The artist, who is considered the richest white hip-hop rapper in history, has amassed a massive fortune since his iconic hit “My Name Is.”
With countless popular songs to his name and a stellar career, it’s evident that Eminem’s fortune has grown tremendously.
Corresponding celebrity net worth, he is estimated to have a net worth of $230 million. Though his net worth may have increased even further following his Super Bowl performance in February.
The rapper is reported to earn about $20 million annually and about $30-50 million during music promotions and touring.
Mom’s Spaghetti adds to his impressive list of achievements and investments. Mathers also built his own record label, Shady Records, with manager Paul Rosenberg. He also bought two Michigan mansions believed to be worth $4.75 million at the time more than 10 years ago, which he later sold.
