It's not the first time Eminem has opened Mom's Spaghetti to the public, having collaborated with Metro Detroit restaurant group Union Joints for similar pop-ups in 2017 and 2018.
During lockdown last April, the group delivered approximately 400 meals to local frontline workers under the Mom's Spaghetti branding.
Lose Yourself was the leading song from Eminem's 2002 acclaimed biopic 8 Mile, in which he starred as himself.
The song features the iconic lyrics “His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy / There’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti.”
The rumour mill is rampant, with fans expecting a new Eminem release to coincide with his pop-diner announcement.
Friday 1 October has been touted as a release date, with the Slim Shady icon reportedly working in the studio with rappers Mozzy and Polo G on a new collaboration.
Whether he drops new music, his first since 2020's Music To Be Murdered By, remains to be seen.
