(AllHipHop News) Eminem figuratively closed the chapter on The Marshall Mathers LP with its sequel but it seem he may also have to say goodbye to an influential piece of his childhood. According to The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press, Eminem’s childhood home was involved in a damaging fire.
The fire burned areas of the house’s top floor. At time of press there are no reports on a cause of a fire to house that appears in both iterations of The Marshall Mathers LP, located on 19946 Dresden St in Detroit, MI. The home was placed on online auction by the state of Michigan earlier this year.

Eminem is also catching fire of his own with the recent #1 debut on the R&B/Hip Hop charts for his collaboration with Rihanna off The Marshall Mathers LP 2 entitled “The Monster”. With that inclusion, Eminem became the first musical act since The Beatles in 1964 to have four singles in Billboard’s Hot 100′s Top 20 with “Rap God” (17), “Berzerk” (15) and “Survival” (16).
The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is available now.
