Eminem Leaves Mandela Hangin' Over Bday Gig

4/11/2008 1:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Eminem to party with Nelson MandelaRetired rapper Eminem has been approached to play Nelson Mandela's upcoming 90th birthday party. Go Nelson, it's ya birthday - er, whatever.

While reports say it's a done deal, Em's camp tells us they haven't accepted the invite just yet.

While one's been arrested, the other one spent 27 years in jail. We're hoping the inevitable, awkward, "who's got more street cred?" conversation won't lead to any beef between the birthday boy and the not-so-slim Shady.

Doesn't anyone KNOW or CARE that Nelson Mandela was jailed because he was a TERRORIST!!!!! Why does everyone gloss over that? If he can be forgiven why not make other terrorists heroes too!
