Eminem Makes “Mom’s Spaghetti” T-Shirts
Arguably some of the most famous opening lines in any rap song ever came from Eminem's "Lose Yourself." Used in his 2002 film 8 Mile, Marshall famously rapped "His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy / There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti," bars that have been recited over and over over the last 14 years. Em finally decided to make money off of the well-known verse by printing up t-shirts for sale in honor of Mother's Day.
The shirts are on sale on Marshall's website for a limited time only. "Show Mom you appreciate her in style this Mother's Day and pick up our 'Mom's Spaghetti' collab with Unfortunate Portrait," reads the site. "You only get one shot, do not miss your opportunity...because this is only available for three days. Vomit not included."
Eminem and his mother, Debbie Nelson-Mathers, have had a contentious relationship that Em has rapped about on wax throughout his career. On early songs like "My Mom," "Cleanin' Out My Closet," "My Name Is" and many more, the Detroit rapper painted his mother as a pill-popping, neglectful parent. The songs led to a 2001 $11 million defamation lawsuit filed by Debbie against her son. She ultimately settled for $25,000 but walked away with under $2 grand after lawyer fees. In 2007, she wrote a memoir called My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem.
In 2013, Em released "Headlights" where he apologized to his mother for insulting her. In 2014, she told MLive.com that she is open to reconciling with the superstar rapper. "I just want to give him a big hug," she said in a statement. "Mama is waiting with open arms."
