Eminem responds to Lord Jamar claim that white rappers are 'guests' in hip hop: 'I’m absolutely a visitor.'

Eminem confronted a home intruder who smashed his way into his Detroit home while his security were elsewhere.

The US rapper was asleep at 4am when the man broke a kitchen window using a paving stone, setting off an alarm that woke the inhabitants of the house.

According to TMZ, Eminem entered his living room to find the intruder, who was then detained by the rapper’s security guards.

The site also claims that the intruder did not appear to be trying to steal items belonging to the rapper, and instead wished to meet him.

Suspect Matthew David Hughes, age 26, is currently being held on a $50,000 (£39,000) bond after being taken into custody.

He is charged with first-degree home invasion and malicious destruction of a building.

Security guards working for Eminem were located at the front of the house at the time of the incident, which occurred in early April. Hughes is believed to have entered from the back.

Eminem confessed this week (29 April) that he was taking well to coronavirus lockdown, after comparing it to being famous.

“Fame has definitely over the years kinda already had me quarantined,” he said during a radio interview.
