50 Cent opened up about his relationship with fellow rapper Eminem. During a press junket for his show Power, 50 revealed how much Eminem means to him and how special their relationship really is. Despite the fact that 50 Cent decided to part ways with Eminem professionally when he left Eminem's label bac in 2014, the two have remained close in their personal lives.
"He's different. When you get older in your life, you don't you can find somebody that means that much. And then when Em came, he provided the opportunity for the music to take off," 50 Cent said of his friend. "Me having the largest debut hip hop album. I sold 13 million records, but he sold 22 million records on the Marshall Mathers LP. So I always had somebody to look at - a template - of something that was bigger than me that made me want to work harder."
He went on to talk about the times the two have worked together in the past, saying that Eminem would always "ask for a favor" when he wanted to collaborate with 50. Of course, it was no problem fro him to join his mentor on a track. He went on to say that Eminem is "special" and that they only "make one of those."
We couldn't have said it better ourselves. Power returns to Starz on Sunday , June 25th for it's fourth season.
