Eminem featured a photo of the home he grew up in on the cover of his latest album Marshall Mathers LP2. The rapper used to live in a two-story bungalow at 19946 Dresden, near East State Fair and Hoover in Detroit which became the center of his promo campaign for the album.
The vacant house was damaged by fire on Thursday evening according to officials but the cause hasn’t been ascertained yet. Immense damage was avoided as fire crew was able to put out the flames before it spread to the rest of the property. It is currently owned by Michigan Land Bank.
The news comes shortly after his dedicated fan Shelly Hazlett submitted a $100 bid for the home which she plans to convert into an Eminem museum. The 747-square-foot house which was built in 1945 is listed on the Michigan Land Bank Fast Track Authority website and the the address is of Eminem’s mother, Deborah Mathers.
