A few days ago the G-Unit rap legend shared a heartfelt message on Instagram thanking Eminem for showing him the way and that made him who he is today. “Sometimes I’m on stage and it feels so good,” 50 Cent wrote. “I thank God for EM, with out him my life would be different.”
Back in 2014, 50 Cent did an interview where he credited Eminem for being the only big name in rap music to believe in his debut project and that then lead others like Dr. Dre to rally around him and the rest is history. His debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’ is still one of the most commercially successful rap albums of all-time. The album was executive produced by Eminem, 50 Cent, and Dr. Dre. The album is also certified 6× platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
