The Detroit Lions are the subject of the training camp edition of HBO’s Hard Knocks.
The show provided a glimpse of their preparations for the 2022 NFL season.
There have been iconic moments like Malcolm Rodriguez’s salsa dance, Aidan Hutchinson’s rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean,” and Jamaal Williams‘ passionate speech after practice.
But the program’s star power got an upgrade when “Rap God” made a visit to the Lions’ training camp.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee interacted with some Lions players during their downtime.
He also reiterated that he could contribute to the team on the field.
“I said, I’m here for whatever position. I’m here,” Eminem said.
The Detroit native also mentioned, “We got a good team this year, man. Let’s go!”
Someone responded with, “We gotta get you to come out to the games this year, man.”
To which, the hip-hop icon replied, “I said I’ll lace up whenever. Like, I go to every game, I’ll stand on the sideline, and if you guys need to put me in, put me in.
