Eminem sent a special Instagram shoutout to 50 Cent for the Queens rapper’s birthday. Fiddy, who turns 42 on Wednesday (July 6), was given a mighty honor as Slim Shady recited one of his verses and claimed it made him want to quit rhyming.
A bearded Marshall Mathers appeared on a couch and expressed his admiration for his former Shady Records signee. After the requisite niceties, Slim Shady launched into a pitch-perfect imitation of 50’s flow on the 8 Mile song, “Places To Go.”
50 posted an equally positive message in the caption of the Instagram post, showing a bit of brotherly love from his side of the fence. “Thank you @eminem,” he wrote. “you know your still the best in the world to me man, I love you bro.”
Check out Eminem’s message above and revisit “Places To Go” below as well as the lyrics.
“Picture a perfect picture, picture me in a pimp hat/Picture me starting shit, picture me busting my gat/Picture police mad they ain’t got a picture of that/Picture me being broke, picture me smoking a sack/Picture me coming up, picture me rich from rap/Picture me blowing up, now picture me going back/To my momma’s basement to live, shit, picture that/Where I’m from it’s a fact, you gotta watch your back/You wear a vest without a gat, you’s a target, Jack/Hustle hard, money stack, sell that dope, sell that crack/Sell that pack, sell that gat, sell that pussy, holla back/50 Cent, too much Henny, man, I’m bent, I’m outta here.”
