Eminem Makes Cameo at 50 Cent Show at SXSW Festival
Rapper 50 Cent walked down memory lane and performed all 16 banging tracks from his debut album ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’ at the Shady 2.0 Showcase at SXSW Friday night (March 16). Not only that, Eminem hopped on stage to help the New York rapper celebrate the 10th anniversary of the album’s 2003 release.
50 hit the stage in a camouflage bulletproof vest and a NY Yankees fitted cap, and was backed by a seven-piece band and his partner-in-rhyme Tony Yayo. Without missing a beat, he went through the entire album, performing joints like ‘What’s Up Gangsta,’ ‘In Da Club,’ ‘P.I.M.P.,’ ’21 Questions’ and ‘Wanksta.’
“The album sold 13 million records. That ain’t hot? Damn,” 50 told the crowd, according to Rap-Up. “I wanted to sell like 2 million. That s— did 13. The money came so fast, I couldn’t f— it up.”
The highlight of the night went to Eminem who stole the whole show during a rendition of the duo’s sinister track ‘Patiently Waiting.’ Afterward, the Detroit rapper disappeared, leaving some fans disappointed that he didn’t stay to rap with 50.
However, in the end, Fiddy gave concertgoers what they really wanted to see: An encore performance of him and Eminem. The rap duo burst onto the stage and performed several bangers together including ‘Til I Collapse’ and ‘Crack a Bottle,’ which left concertgoers ultimately satisfied.
“Austin, Texas, make some motherf—in’ noise for yourselves. Everybody thank you for coming out. We love you,” said Em.
