50 Cent Thanks Eminem: "He Gave Me My Shot"

50 Cent also says he's "met a lot of people, but EM is my favorite."

50 Cent, a longtime friend and collaborator of Eminem, praised his former Shady Records boss in an Instagram post made yesterday (April 5). The praise came in a caption for a photograph of Eminem and 50 Cent in the studio. 

"I traveled a lot of places.Met a lot of people but EM is my favorite. He gave me my shot man.That's all I needed I ran with it#smsaudio," 50 Cent wrote in the post's caption. 

50 Cent's bond with Eminem has been in the news this year following 50's departure from Shady Records, Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records. According to 50 Cent, his ties with Eminem and Dr. Dre allowed for the transition to be possible. 

“I’m a special case and situation,” 50 Cent said at the time. “It’s also because of the leverage of having the strong relationships with Eminem and Dr. Dre. They don’t want to me to be uncomfortable. They value our friendship to the point that they would never want [to jeopardize] it over that little bit of money.”

Eminem and 50 Cent have collaborated on several songs, including "Patiently Waiting" and "Don't Push Me."

    Is that a new photo. Not sure if it's because he's standing next to 50 but Eminem looks almost anorexic. He don't look to healthy. And his eyes look a spaced out too lol

    • slim

      well i saw eminem live last month and he looked fine, full of energy as well. Have to be healthy to rock a show like he did!

    You gotta respect 50's hustle man. He move in the right direction and his respect for Em and Dre is understood....them boys put Fiddy on! Be sure to checkout thegrandreport, they have some good hip hop and viral videos on there

  • lol

    In his head eminem himself (and the whole world) knows hes a 1000x better rapper than 50 close friends or not. 50 did his thing for 3 years and became a business man his music and lyrics are just fucking terrible since after massacre every single last song of his is the SAME EXACT shit. hes not even top 40 rappers honestly

      no ones saying hes the greatest rapper alive

    • ^ commercial rap 50 fan

      He means his sound and style is always that dumbed down commercial gansta bullshit he aint creative at all and his first 2 albums were only succesful cuz em of all rappers co signed his ass. 50 sucks and he pathetically measures himself in interviews and in general based on record sales I can name 50 (no pun intended) or more rappers way better than his simple ass

      "every single last song of his is the SAME EXACT shit" 'Funeral', 'Hold On', 'Don't Worry About It' and 'Smoke' are all very different to me.

  • RealTalk

    lol. gave you your shot? talk about an understatement.

    • not really

      No, i dont, But he sounds like he was insinuating that eminem gave 50 more of a shot than any other rapper who gets signed to a major. Although i don't like the man, 50 put in work himself as well.

    • Anonymous

      You know xactly what he means.^^^^

    • not really

      not really, em and dre gave fif a chance to blow up and fif took it, how else do you describe it?

  • Not Impressed

    He's just shouting out Eminem constantly because he thinks this will make white people like him and buy his awful albums again. Notice how he only brings Eminem up when he has something coming out. And by that way, Eminem and Dre didn't let him go because of their "relationship", it doesn't even seem like they like him, they never really talk about him at all. I think they let him go because he's not selling any records and he's no longer useful. I'm not impressed

      ^^^^^jimmy iovine made the exec decision to remove 50 along with his compliance and negotiation with 50.50 was unhappy with interscope not shady/aftermath. plus em openly expresses his good frienship with 50 in interviews when 50 comes up(look them up). YOU realise em dont really talk about anything at all anyway? Im not sure doh how dre feelsa bout him. what u said starting your comments is retarded and ignant as fuck

  • glospot.biz

    fif is taking his own advice never out shine the master... not to mention em discovering him literally changed his life... and in the digital age independent is the way to go. After the success and exposure he had on a major, it would be foolish for him not to own is product. Interscope made it possible for the world to know who he is. now he has the luxury of reaping the rewards as his own boss. well played 50

      What's obvious is you don't know real music that comes from the gut.. How could you call a platinum artist views fake when he has sold millions of albums? I don't understand that, and Q left it up at the top because him and Buck have a different relationship because he toured with 50 and Buck always showed him mad love and when you do that the love comes back.. www.dopeboyuniversity.bigcartel.com
