Eminem Celebrates ‘MMLP’ 16th Anniversary with Rare Collectibles

Attention all Stans. To celebrate the 16th anniversary of his seminal album The Marshall Mathers LP, Eminem has announced a limited-edition run of collectibles.

The items include 700 bricks that were gathered from Slim Shady’s childhood home, the same one that appeared on the cover art for MMLP and MMLP2, and the same house that was demolished for safety reasons in 2013.

The bricks are available in different packages. One of them includes a cassette version of The Marshall Mathers LP ($313) and another set (priced at $350) includes a Good Wood dog tag and a T-shirt. Other items are available at varied prices on Em’s website.

“Today is the #MMLP 16th anniversary!” wrote Em on Instagram. “In 2013 we revisited my childhood home for the sequel and later had the opportunity to put together some once in a lifetime collectables created from the remains of what has become a very iconic symbol for me and my career.”

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Marshall Mathers Foundation, a charitable organization for at-risk youth in Michigan and throughout the U.S.

The Marshall Mathers LP is often regarded as Em’s best body of work to date. When it was released, Rolling Stone awarded it a near-perfect rating. The magazine later called it one of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.”
