Eminem is getting his own Tigers jersey, and of course he's wearing No. 8

Apparently, it's Homegrown Rappers Week this week in the AL Central. As Chance the Rapper debuts new cap designs and throws out the first pitch for the White Sox on Friday, Eminem is getting his very own Tigers jersey:

That's "Mathers" with the backwards "E" -- for Marshall Mathers -- and No. 8, because what other number would he wear? According to the Detroit Free Press, Eminem's label Shady Records will put the jerseys up for sale on Friday, also in conjunction with the Tigers' home opener. 

Bring in Tech N9ne's "KCMO" Royals anthem from last year's World Series championship, and the Central could bring us some of baseball's best rap beefs this year.
