Eminem, a devoted fan of the Detroit Lions, recently sent a bold message to Matthew Stafford, quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams, through a promotional clip on X (previously known as Twitter). In this clip, released just before the playoff game between the Lions and Rams on January 14th, Eminem directly addresses Stafford with a mix of humor and seriousness.

The iconic rapper starts by reminding Stafford of a past favor: “Stafford, what’d I say? You owe me this favor, bro.” He then refers to his support during Stafford’s Super Bowl win, emphasizing his presence and contribution: “I was there for you when you won it. I was right there. I rapped for you Stafford. Bro, I rapped for you!”

Eminem’s attire in the clip, a custom Barry Sanders hoodie with the number 20, serves as a nod to his deep-rooted connection with the Detroit Lions. He also references his memorable performance at the 2022 Super Bowl halftime show at SoFi Stadium near Los Angeles, where the Rams emerged victorious against the Cincinnati Bengals. This performance was notable for featuring an all-star hip-hop lineup, including Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, and 50 Cent.

The background context is significant: Stafford spent 12 years with the Lions before a 2021 trade to the Rams, a period marked by three first-round playoff losses. His trade was for Jared Goff, the Lions’ current quarterback.

The upcoming game at Detroit’s Ford Field is monumental for the Lions, marking their first home playoff game in 30 years, and their first ever at Ford Field. The Lions, who haven’t won a playoff game since 1992, are filled with anticipation for this match against the Rams.

In another clip shared on his Instagram, Eminem talks about his New Year’s resolution, which is for the Lions to win the Super Bowl. His message ends with a playful challenge: “So, what’s up?”

Eminem’s unique blend of personal passion for the Detroit Lions and his superstar status makes his message to Stafford and his New Year’s resolution an interesting and entertaining piece for fans of both music and football.
