Rapper Eminem is in talks to buy St. Andrew's Hall, a Detroit venue owned by Live Nation.

According to The Detroit News, Eminem is negotiating to buy the venue from Live Nation, formerly Clear Channel Entertainment, for an undisclosed amount.

Live Nation, which was created in 2005, owns or operates over 120 performance venues worldwide.

As part of the deal, Eminem and his manager Paul Rosenberg will manage the operation, while the venue's current management would run the day-to-day operations of the club.

The venue was popularized in Eminem's hit movie 8 Mile.

The battle scenes in the movie were filmed in an area of St. Andrew's called "The Shelter" and Eminem name check's the venue on the song "One Shot, 2 Shot."

St. Andrews hosts performances by a number of up and coming rock and Hip-Hop acts.

Representatives for Eminem had no comment.
