(AllHipHop News) Yesterday, in Detroit, rapper, Eminem, offered up some words for his hometown in their fight against COVID19.
Making a surprise appearance during the city’s “Everybody vs. COVID19” virtual festival, Em urged fellow residents to stay diligent while also thanking them for their persistence thus far.
“Detroit isn’t just a city, it’s also a feeling. A hustle, a state of mind. But mostly, Detroit is a city where we fight for what we believe in. And we don’t take s##t just lying down. And COVID19 is no different.”
Em’s call to action in regards to COVID-19 was the perfect segue into his message about the census.
The veteran rapper urged residents to fill out their census this month to “bring the city together.”
His efforts have remained persistent after Detroit became one of the cities impacted the most by the pandemic in its early phase.
