Fire Marshall: Eminem’s Childhood Home Caught In Fire


(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.

    damn, they burn houses for promo now? this sh!t has gone too far

    • fuckyou

      you really think em needs to go this far for promo? he could fart on a record and move a half mil first week, cmon son!

        If it keeps his name in the media and he has a project out….it is considered PROMO…

      • fuckyou

        so the highest selling artist of any genre of the past decade needs to go burn his old house down and risk a felony to sell more records? you really believe that?. look at his skin color, combine that with the fact he is one of the dopest mc’s of all time and the sky is the limit when it comes to sales, he doesnt need to resort to something that far fetched to move units. im sure someone with his net worth would be eager to risk prison time just to sell an extra 100k when hes already going to move 700 easy. smh

        You’re obviously missing the point and possess very limited knowledge of marketing strategies…no one implied that he did it…the sheer fact that the house is associated with the dude’s name and made press is all the proof needed to justify my comment…you have a good day sir

      • fuckyou

        “they burn houses for promo now” those were the OP’s words, sounded like he was suggesting that someone from interscope came up with a plot to set fire to ems childhood home in order to sell records which is insane. obviously this is promo, i never said it wasnt. the way that comment was worded made it seem as if he was saying they had something to do with it. go read it yourself and thats all the proof needed to justify my comment and why i took issue with such a ludicrous idea. peace
