Today is the #MMLP 16th anniversary! In 2013 we revisited my childhood home for the sequel and later had the opportunity to put together some once in a lifetime collectables created from the remains of what has become a very iconic symbol for me and my career. Do not miss out – available via link in the bio.
Eminem has reissued his seminal album, The Marshall Mathers LP, as a limited edition cassette in celebration of its 16th anniversary. It can be purchased from his official website as a part of several packages including a T-shirt, “good wood” dog tag, and most interestingly, a brick from Eminem’s childhood home located at 19946 Dresden Street in Detroit.
“On November 20th, 2013 the State of Michigan ordered the demolition of the childhood home of Marshall B. Mathers due to structural safety issues. By reacting quickly, we were able to secure materials from the razed property.”
The unique collectible item is available not only for nostalgic reasons, but is a reference to the Marshall Mathers LP album artwork. The authentic brick is available with the cassette for a whopping $313 or can be purchased with the dog tag and t-shirt as part of the $350 deluxe package.
A portion of the proceeds from the reissue will be donated to the Marshall Mathers Foundation, which helps provide support for at-risk and disadvantaged youth programs. The offering puts to rest rumors of a new album which were stoked on Genius last week — for now at least.
