Monday marked the 16th anniversary of The Marshall Mathers LP, and Eminem has a unique way to celebrate. The childhood home depicted on the album's cover, brought back in derelict form for 2013's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 cover, is being sold, brick by brick.

For $313 at Eminem's official site, fans can get a certified brick from the rapper's old house, complete with a mantle-ready display case and a signature from Shady. It also comes with an MMLP cassette. The tape is available as a standalone, as are some dog tags made from wood from the house. The idea might seem weird coming from another artist, but the intensity of Eminem's fan-base makes it a perfect fit. Everyone probably knows someone who'd kill for a brick from the dude's house.

Back in March, the 17th anniversary of The Slim Shady LP led to a cassette reissue as well.

The Marshall Mathers LP, Eminem's second on a major label, featured songs like "Stan," "The Way I Am," "The Real Slim Shady" and "Kim." Em hasn't dropped a new solo album since the 2013 sequel, although he executive produced 2015's Southpaw soundtrack and contributed directly to four songs.
