50 Cent Discusses His Contributions to Eminem's 'Relapse 2', New Music, Their Friendship, and '8 Mile' TV Series Plans
50 Cent recently delved into a range of topics, from upcoming music to his close friendship with Eminem, shedding light on the potential Relapse 2 album and the much-anticipated 8 Mile TV series during an interview on Evropa 2.
“When I’m not moving around and not touring and doing things, then its gonna permit me to focus on creating music. You get little more of what you get from Dr. Dre and Eminem from me at that point.” 50 Cent revealed.
He went on to highlight Eminem's dedication to music, saying, “When the last time you have seen Eminem on tour? You see what I’m saying? It’s been a while but he’ll go and make music. Because his passion is still in music. He’s like a lab-rat. He’ll go to the studio and come up with something new.”
Opening up about his bond with Eminem, 50 Cent expressed, “Em is like my best friend to be honest. It’s rare when you run into someone who always has your best interest at heart. There is no point that he’s not looking at it and going is that good for him. He won’t want me to do it if it’s not good for me. They tried to get him to do the Super Bowl he would not do it without me.”

When asked about the possibility of new music with Eminem, 50 Cent shared, “We have a whole CD together. He did Relapse and when he didn’t see the response that he wanted, he scrapped Relapse 2. And then went to Recovery. On Relapse 2, we had 4-5 songs on the album together but the world will probably never hear that record.”
“Em may not release it but he’s gonna make new music. This guy goes like people go to work from 9 to 5. He gets up and goes in recording studio from 9 to 5 like its a job. So he’s always coming up with something. He’s always doing something.” Fiddy added.
Addressing the anticipated 8 Mile TV series, 50 Cent emphasized the need for a meticulous approach, stating, “8 Mile is a huge hit. I think its important for his legacy and it needs to be done correctly so I’m really tedious about who comes in as a writer showrunner for the project and how its structured and put together.”
