The idea for the restaurant — Mom's Spaghetti — is centered on the Detroit rapper's lyrics from "Lose Yourself." Eminem has been popping up in local TV ads for the eatery this week.

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Noel King. You remember this one.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "LOSE YOURSELF")

EMINEM: (Rapping) His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy. There's vomit on his sweater already - mom's spaghetti. He's nervous.

KING: Eminem's "Lose Yourself" - in case that song made you hungry, there's a restaurant for that. The shop is called Mom's Spaghetti. It's opening in Eminem's hometown of Detroit today. He's been popping up in local TV ads for it this week. Their menu is simple; you can get a s'ghetti (ph) sandwich or mom's spaghetti.

It's MORNING EDITION.
