Eminem Defies Trends by Sticking to His BlackBerry Phone

Eminem's BlackBerry Loyalty and Mom’s Spaghetti Banter: Inside DJ Whoo Kid's Candid Photo
Eminem, the rap icon known for his groundbreaking music and bold personality, is once again making headlines. This time, it's not for his chart-topping hits or fiery lyrical battles, but for his unexpected choice in technology.

Despite living in a digital age where smartphones dominate the market, Eminem has remained steadfast in his loyalty to a device from a bygone era: the BlackBerry. Yes, you read that right. The legendary rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, is still holding onto his trusty BlackBerry phone, even though its manufacturer ceased production two years ago.

The revelation came to light through an Instagram post shared by DJ Whoo Kid on Thursday (February 22). In the photo, DJ Whoo Kid can be seen chatting with Eminem and Denaun Porter for the WHOO’S House Podcast. However, it wasn't the podcast discussion that caught everyone's attention, it was the sight of Eminem clutching onto his beloved BlackBerry.

In the caption, DJ Whoo Kid humorously mentioned Mom’s Spaghetti, a reference to one of Eminem's most iconic lyrics. He jokingly accused Denaun of devouring Eminem's last box of Mom’s Spaghetti, while confirming that Eminem still uses a BlackBerry phone to this day.

But Eminem's quirky tech choice isn't the only thing making waves. The photo also captured Eminem sporting a t-shirt featuring artwork from Too $hort's classic 1990 album, "Short Dog’s in the House." This isn't the first time Eminem has donned this particular tee; he previously wore it during rehearsals for the Super Bowl halftime show in February 2022, earning praise from Too $hort himself.

However, amidst the lighthearted banter and nostalgic fashion choices, Eminem's restaurant, Mom’s Spaghetti, faced some unexpected criticism. Popular food critic Mr. ChimeTime recently dubbed it as "the WORST restaurant in Detroit." Despite this setback, Mom’s Spaghetti continues to thrive, drawing inspiration from Eminem's iconic lyrics and serving up delicious dishes to fans and food enthusiasts alike.

Located at 2131 Woodward Ave, Mom’s Spaghetti isn't just a restaurant, it's a cultural landmark. In addition to mouthwatering meals, visitors can also explore The Trailer, a merchandise shop housing memorabilia like the iconic Robin suit from Eminem's "Without Me" music video.

In a world of ever-evolving trends and technological advancements, Eminem's unwavering dedication to his BlackBerry phone serves as a reminder of his unique persona and refusal to conform to societal norms. And with Mom’s Spaghetti continuing to make headlines, it's clear that Eminem's influence extends far beyond the realm of music.
