Eminem selling pieces of his childhood home
You can now own a piece of Eminem’s childhood home.
To celebrate the 16th anniversary of Eminem’s “The Marshall Mathers LP,” the rapper is selling pieces of his childhood home, which was demolished in 2013, on his website.
Bricks from the home, framed in a plexiglass collectible case with a commemorative plaque on the side, are available for $313, and come with a reissued “Marshall Mathers LP” cassette. The bricks, 700 of which are available, come with a numbered certificate of authenticity which includes Eminem’s handwritten signature.
In addition to the bricks, also available are dog tags that spell out the home’s address, 19946 Dresden St. ($28, or $42 with a “MMLP” cassette”) which were re-purposed from the wood of the home. The dog tags come packaged in a box modeled after the home.
A deluxe package, which includes a T-shirt, cassette, dog tag and authentic brick, retails for $350.
Quantities are limited, and a portion of proceeds will be donated to The Marshall Mathers Foundation, according to Em’s website.
“The Marshall Mathers LP” was released on May 23, 2000, and features the smash singles “The Real Slim Shady,” “Stan” and “The Way I Am.” The album sold more than 11 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The album cover features Em sitting in front the home. “The Marshall Mathers LP 2,” released in 2013, also features the home on the cover.
The home was demolished in 2013, and “by acting quickly,” Em’s team was able to rescue the remains of the home, Em’s manager Paul Rosenberg wrote on Instagram.
