The internet has been abuzz about Detroit’s own Eminem selling bricks from his old home on Dresden Street in the city of Detroit to commemorate the 16th anniversary of his landmark album, The Marshall Mathers LP.
The house was taken down in 2013 due to structural issues, and apparently, Team Eminem was able to get in there and get some of the materials before it was too late.
The bricks turned out to be popular, with all 700 bricks selling out, both with the cassette and with the T-Shirt. They were going for $313-$350 each.
That said, a much more affordable option is still available – dogs tags made of reclaimed wood from 19946 Dresden. They were made by Good Wood, and have a custom-etched box. They’re available in red, black, or natural; and with a cassette (hey, there’s still a cassette player in my car) or without. They run $28 alone or $42 with the MMLP cassette.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Marshall Mathers Foundation. The foundation provides money and resources for organizations working with at-risk youth in Michigan and throughout the United States.
