Detroit rapper Eminem sent some much-needed sustenance in the form of "Mom's Spaghetti" to support those local Detroit health care workers battling the coronavirus on the frontlines.
Earlier this week, Henry Ford Health Care System received a healthy helping of Mom's Spaghetti from Eminem, Shady Records, and Clarkston-based Union Joints as a gesture of gratitude for their hard work.
“Our #HealthcareHeroes 'lost themselves' in the delicious Mom's Spaghetti donated by Detroit's very own, Eminem,” reads a tweet from Henry Ford Health Care System.
Staff at Detroit Medical Center also received a delivery of the delicious novelty, taking to Twitter to express gratitude for the support.

A nod to a heavily memed lyric off of Em's Academy Award-winning “Lose Yourself” from the rapper's 2002 semi-autobiographical feature film 8 Mile, Eminem debuted his culinary collaboration with Union Joints for a Mom's Spaghetti pop-up in 2017, which took place at the Shelter, the rapper's old rap-battle stomping grounds.
This year found the 47-year-old “Rap God” landing his 10th No. 1 record in a row with Music to Be Murdered By. The track “Godzilla,” which features the late rapper Juice WRLD, also made headlines after it broke a World Record for fastest rap verse, cramming in a whopping 10.65 syllables per second during the third verse.
Earlier this week, Eminem celebrated 12 years of sobriety, posting a photo of his recovery chip on social media.
“Clean dozen, in the books,” an Instagram caption read. “I’m not afraid.”
