(WJBK) -

Eminem's childhood home in Detroit has been demolished. A crew demolished the home on Dresden between Seven Mile and Eight Mile roads Wednesday.

The boarded-up bungalow is pictured on the cover of the rapper's recently released "The Marshall Mathers LP 2." It also was on his 2000 album "The Marshall Mathers LP."

A fire earlier this month damaged portions of the small home's top floor.

The Michigan Land Bank says in a statement that the home was "structurally unsafe" after the fire. The Michigan Land Bank is a state agency. It owns the property.

Workers are expected to finish removing debris on the lot by the end of the month.
