Eminem has taken his Mom’s Spaghetti restaurant to Coachella.
The rapper, who will headline the Californian festival tonight (April 15), opened a restaurant inspired by the lyrics to his hit ‘Lose Yourself’ in Detroit last year.
Now, he’s brought a pop-up food stand to the first weekend of the Indio bash, selling various spaghetti-based dishes, including a sandwich of garlic bread, spaghetti, and mozzarella, and spaghetti and meatballs.
According to the LA Times, the food served at the Coachella stand is being made by a local commissary kitchen and is priced between $9 and $12 (£6.32-£8.42).
Last year, Eminem made a surprise appearance at the Detroit location of Mom’s Spaghetti. Based at music venue The Shelter, the space also gave fans the chance to buy his latest album ‘Revival’ and a range of exclusive merchandise, while the rapper was briefly on hand to sign autographs.
‘Revival’ is Marshall Mathers ninth solo album and featured collaborations with Ed Sheeran, Beyoncé, Kehlani, and Alicia Keys.
In relation to ordinarily exorbidant food and beverage prices at music festivals, “Mom’s Spaghetti” is priced along a sliding scale of options. For 9 bucks you get a spaghetti dinner, an additional 2 bucks gets you meatball toppings, and for 11 bucks flat your pasta dish gets reconstructed as a meatball sub comprised of garlic bread and mozzarella. Be sure to tune in for Eminem’s headline performance at 10:20pm on the main Coachella stage.
Meanwhile, Jay-Z recently revealed what he thinks make Snoop Dog and Eminem good rappers. The star appeared on David Letterman’s new Netflix show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, and singled the pair out for praise. Of Eminem, he said the musician had “amazing cadence – it’s almost like a syncopation”.
