As XXLMag.com reported yesterday Eminem will be appearing on three episodes of Jimmy Kimmel Live, starting this week, and it seems like he has a much bigger entourage than usual.

According to the Toledo Free Press, the reclusive rapper will be flying 200 laid off auto workers from plants in his home state of Michigan and Ohio to Los Angeles for his May 15 show.

“He is flying us out, all expenses paid, for the show to put a face on the American auto workers who are affected by this hardship,” Jon Michael Zapf, a man who works for Ohio Modular Management told the Free Press. “He is supposed to do a meet and greet and sign autographs.”

Along with this Friday’s show, Em will also be on Kimmel’s late night show on May 19 and May 22. Relapse, his highly anticipated comeback disc hits stores in exactly one week from today. – Elan Mancini
