Eminem Helps Revitalize 8 Mile Road



Rapper Eminem has signed 30 bricks from the demolished Detroit Artillery Armory on 8 Mile in Oak Park, as part of charity to revitalize 8 Mile Road

Rapper Eminem, born Marshall Mathers III, has been asked by the Eight Mile Boulevard Association to sign bricks to be sold at an auction, which is aimed for revitalization efforts along 8 Mile Road. Explaining on their chosing of the rapper, Association President Barry Brickner told the Detroit Free Press for a Thursday story, "He's identified with 8 Mile Road, and he's famous."

Thus, Eminem, who grew up on both sides of 8 Mile Road, has signed at least 30 bricks for the auction. To be more specific, the association's executive director Tami Salisbury explained "The bricks are painted gold and covered with a clear sealant on the side bearing Eminem's autograph." The bricks will, moreover, be packaged with DVD copies of 2002's "8 Mile" film.

R. Miles Handy, supervisor of Wayne County's Redford Township, submitted the winning bid of $300 for the first brick, which says "Save 8 Mile Slim Shady 2005." The rest of the autogrpahed bricks are to be auctioned on eBay within the next month. Profits from the selling will be split between Eminem's charity, the Marshall Mathers Foundation, and the Eight Mile Boulevard Association.
