DETROIT (WXYZ) — Detroit rapper Eminem sent a special meal to employees at Henry Ford Hospital as a thank you to frontline health care workers.

The award-winning rapper gave health care employees spaghetti meals, and Henry Ford Health System took it as a play on words from his song "Lose Yourself" on the "8 Mile" movie soundtrack.

"Our #HealthcareHeroes 'lost themselves' in the delicious Mom’s Spaghetti donated by Detroit’s very own, @eminem," the health care system wrote in an Instagram post. "Thank you for providing a special meal for our team members! 🍝"

The rap artist recently celebrated 12 years of sobriety on social media after getting clean in 2008.
