Rapper and Detroit native Eminem, also known as Marshall Mathers, sent pasta to front-line workers in Detroit this week in a show of appreciation to those combating the coronavirus pandemic. 

The Henry Ford Health System, which is a health care organization serving the Detroit area, posted pictures of the pasta on Instagram on Wednesday. 

“Our #HealthcareHeros ‘lost themselves’ in the delicious Mom’s Spaghetti donated by Detroit’s very own Eminem,” the organization wrote in the post, referencing Eminem’s 2002 hit “Lose Yourself.” 

The spaghetti is also a reference to the song’s lyrics, “There’s vomit on his sweater already/mom’s spaghetti.” 

Eminem’s foundation teamed up with restaurant group Union Joints to donate the pasta. A representative for the rapper told ABC News that the two groups plan to donate more food in the coming weeks. 

Michigan has been one of the hardest-hit states in the U.S. coronavirus outbreak, with over 35,000 confirmed cases reported on Thursday. Detroit’s Wayne County has reported 14,561 positive cases, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
