Eminem closed out Coachella with a monstrous set Sunday that boldly swept through his hits, tackled deep cuts on his new album Revival like “Chlroaseptic” and brought out collaborators like Skylar Grey, 50 Cent and Dr Dre, performing hits like “Forget About Dre” and later, Dre’s hit “Nothing But a G Thang” with Em doing Snoop’s verse.

Throwing back to Em’s hit track “Lose Yourself” the festival opened a pop-up eatery Sunday night selling “Mom’s Spaghetti,” referencing the opening of the track that was part of the 8 Mile film. Located in the general admission area, the pop-up sold a $9 takeout container of spaghetti, $12 with meatballs, as well as a spaghetti sandwich for $11.  The pop-up eatery was even advertised via highway sign on the way to the festival

Reviews of Eminem’s set were strong with Billboard saying the rapper had cemented “his ‘Rap God’ status” while the Guardian called it “a perfect nostalgia hit.”
