If you like Eminem, raising money for Covid-19 relief, and raffles, then boy do we have the thing for you.

The rap legend has announced he's donating a pair of super rare Jordan 4 Retro Eminem x Carhartt trainers to the Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund, along with a vintage Undrcrwn Detroit Slim Tee.

The trainers are as rare as rocking-horse s***, with only 10 pairs auctioned on eBay back in 2015 to raise money for the Marshall Mathers Foundation.

Pairs that have gone on to be resold have been flogged for well over $20,000 (£16,058), but you could get your hands on a pair for just £11 ($13.70) - if you have the lucky raffle ticket, that is.

You can get your ticket here.


The 47-year-old recently said that lockdown feels quite familiar to him, having lived his life in the public eye.

Speaking to Sway Calloway on Shade45, Slim Shady - real name Marshall Mathers - claimed that he has been forced to avoid public spaces for years and that lockdown doesn't feel much different - though he conceded the situation now had an added psychological aspect due to the restrictions that have been put in place.

He explained: "Fame has definitely over the years kinda already had me quarantined, but it's the fact of knowing that you can't really go out and we can't move like how we normally move.

"It's not just the same thing for me every day that it always is. There's something to be said about knowing that you can't go out and do certain things."

Em then went on to discuss how he has been coping during the pandemic, discussing his frustration at not being able to make new music.

He added: "It's not the same when you can't do a lot of your regular routines and s***, and going to the studio is like my outlet.

"We can't really get in and do much, so I've just been writing."
