50 Cent and Eminem have known each other for over a decade. It all started when Slim Shady heard Jackson’s Guess Who’s Back? CD back in 2002. Since then they are close to each other and have done many collaborations together.
Recently, the internet witnessed Eminem had grown a beard and everyone freaked out. Now he is back again but this time not to show off his beard. Being Fiddy’s birthday, Mathers decided to make a video wishing him happy birthday.
At the beginning of the video, he starts with some basic stuff but then switches to rap mode.
According to Shady, the verse that he rapped in the video almost made him quit rapping back in 2002. It was the second verse from 50 Cent’s “Places To Go”, a track on the 8 Mile soundtrack.
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
Featured on the 8 Mile soundtrack back in 2002, it was a big step for Fiddy before finally releasing his debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’. His career was destined to rise especially after songs such as In Da Club and Candy Shop. Apart from being a rapper, Jackson is also an entrepreneur and an actor.
Eminem and 50 have remained good friends ever since and it is good to see the two Hip Hop legends back together.
