As 50 Cent nears the Indian leg of the “Final Lap Tour” this year, the iconic emcee, entrepreneur and music mogul brought out Detroit’s legendary rapper Eminem on his own turf. Fiddy, who was performing in front of a packed stadium with over 15,000 fans, left everyone in shock when Eminem joined the “Get Rich Or Die Tryin” rapper onstage for a brief performance.
For his surprise live set, Slim Shady performed his revered rap records with 50 including “Crack A Bottle” from the “Relapse” LP and “Patiently Waiting”. “Detroit! Don’t f—ing act like you didn’t know I was going to be here,” Eminem said just ahead of performing the cult rap classics.
Notably, Eminem and 50 Cent share one of the closest relationships in rap music. In fact, 50 was introduced to the world by Eminem himself. Marshall Mathers, who was at the peak of his historic rap career signed Cent to Shady Records in 2002 and gave the young New York-bred emcee his shot.
50 then went on to drop his breakthrough rap LP Get Rich Or Die Tryin and the rest is history.

While Em’s shocking appearance at 50 Cent’s Detroit concert is celebrated by many, fans were left irksome when Lil Wayne “stormed out” of Fiddy’s concert earlier this month. The legendary rapper, who was fresh off his flagrant rap record “Kat Food”, was reportedly “pushed away” by the concert’s staff minutes before he was slated to join 50 Cent at his L.A. Concert.
The mishap, coupled with various issues with audio and microphones, even led to 50 firing the entire crew shortly after the concert.
With the Detroit set done and dusted, Cent is just a few dates away from performing in Mumbai after nearly two decades. The “In Da Club” rapper is slated to perform in Mumbai on November 25th this year.
