A new report has details on what Eminem’s rider while on tour includes.
Channel24.co.za reports that Shady’s rider requests while on tour in South Africa include premier German brand Gundelsheim pickles, low-fat yogurt, peanut butter, jumbo shrimp, Swiss mild cheddar cheese, and dumbbells.
The rider is a drastic departure from what Eminem might have requested on tour early on in his career, as Em has admitted in numerous interviews that he had been on drugs for most, if not all, of his tours in the late ’90s and early 2000s.
So pervasive was Eminem’s drug abuse problem that he left the national spotlight in 2005. After nearly dying from an overdose and then getting clean, Eminem didn’t tour again until 2010’s tour in support of his album, Recovery.
Jay Z commented on Em’s touring practices in an interview with David Letterman in 2010 while doing press for his and Em’s Home and Home concert series, calling Eminem a “notorious non-tourer.” The Home and Home tour was among Hip Hop’s top-grossing tours in 2010.
