50 Cent: Eminem Is 'Like My Grandmother'
EXCLUSIVE: Fiddy talks about their relationship on the set of his new film
50 Cent hooked up with MTV UK News on the set of his latest film, Dead Man Running, in London this weekendand 50 took some time out to tell us that Eminem reminds him of his grandmother!
With a lot of hype around 50 and Eminems new material we had to find out how its been going "It's always a pleasure working with Em for me," 50 said. "When I leave here, I'm actually going back to the States, to Detroit, to work with him again. You know, me and Em, we work really close together. He's like a relative to me.
The rap entrepreneur continued He's done something for me. He's like my grandmother. He's someone that provided an opportunity for me to take care of myself when I couldn't take care of myself. My grandma did it when I was a child, and then Em provided the opportunity for me as an adult."
So far, Marshall and Fiddy have recorded three songs for their respective LPs: Relapse and Before I Self Destruct. On Friday, an unfinished Eminem and Dr. Dre track "Breaking Bottles" hit the Internet.
The track finds Em apparently referring to verses that Dr. Dre may rap in the finished version. According to a source close to the Shady/Aftermath camps, the record was never meant to make it off the cutting-room floor.
The gangster filmDead Man Running, that 50 is working on co-stars Danny Dyer, is set in the UK and executive produced by none other than Rio Ferdinand and Ashley Cole!
Both Relapse and Detox are due in 2009. Before I Self Destruct is currently slated for February 4
