Eminem fans were buzzing to see him take to the stage with 50 Cent this weekend.
A 50-year-old Slim Shady joined the Candy Shop hitmaker, 48, on his Final Lap tour Michigan show.
As a Detroit native, it was only fitting Eminem joined 50 Cent – real name Curtis James Jackson III – on stage to perform some of their epic collaborations.
The rappers performed Crack a Bottle and Patiently Waiting together to an elated crowd in the Pine Knob Amphitheater in Clarkston.
‘Don’t f***ing act like you ain’t know I was gonna be here,’ Eminem reportedly told the audience.
‘Detroit, make some noise for one of the best friends I’ve ever known: 50 Cent. And also, make some noise for hip-hop’s 50th birthday, y’all.’
The Final Lap tour marks 20 years since the release of 50 Cent’s 2003 album Get Rich or Die Tryin’ which saw him and Eminem – real name Marshall Bruce Mathers III – come together for the first time.
Taking to Instagram to mark the recent moment with a video of the pair on stage together, 50 Cent wrote: ‘Bro when I do anything with EM people just go crazy they know he really my boy. I love him till death!’
The In Da Club hitmaker is wrapping up the US leg of his tour before heading over to Europe later this month.
His tour comes as artists have endured a series of bizarre incidents, in which crowd members have thrown various objects on stage at artists.
Things got odd in June when one concert-goer threw their mother’s ashes at Pink midway through a gig, while Drake, who is normally greeted with a bunch of bras, had his very own poetry book lobbed at him.
50 Cent then joked he wanted fans to treat him ‘like Drake’ in an Instagram video.
‘Can somebody help me with my feet please? They don’t treat Drake like this. They don’t treat mother**king Drake like this,’ he quipped.
‘Drake, they throw him bras. What do I get? Could you please go get me some Drake fans? S**t just don’t feel right. I need to feel special around here.
‘I need them to treat me like I’m Drake. Drake gets bras every night, bras every night! I used to get bras in the beginning of my career.’
50 Cent touches down in Europe on September 28, and will be in the UK from two months later with his London dates set as November 17 and 21.
