Eminem Says Detroit 'Won't Be Defeated' In Open Letter

March 11, 2011
Eminem Says Detroit 'Won't Be Defeated' In Open LetterEminem has said Detroit will not be “defeated” in a open letter about his home city.

The letter, released via video, shows the rapper walking through the city's streets and also features footage of locals.

Over the course of the video, Eminem notes how the city was hit hard by the recent recession but also pays tribute to its attributes, including Motown.

“Through all this we cannot be defeated because we've never been defeated,” he adds.

It is the second time this year Eminem has paid homage to his home city.

In an advert aired during the Super Bowl in February the rapper delivered a critically-acclaimed performance about Detroit's rebirth.
