Happy birthday 50!
Eminem has revealed the 50 Cent verse that almost made him retire from rapping.
In celebration of the New York rapper’s 42nd birthday on Thursday 6th July, Em recorded a personal video revealing that 50’s verse on ‘Places To Go’, from the 8 Mile soundtrack, blew him away.
The newly-bearded rap legend then recreated the tongue-twister verse in the style of 50 Cent: “Picture a perfect picture/ Picture me in a pimp hat...
“Picture me starting sh*t/ Picture me busting my gat/ Picture police mad they ain’t got a picture of that.”
Following the verse, Eminem admitted the surprising news that it made him want to hang up the mic.
“Yeah, so, that made me want to stop rapping, for like a long time," he said.
Meanwhile, 50 Cent recently made headlines after slamming JAY-Z’s new album ‘4:44’ and labelling the project as “golf course music.”
