With Eminem to play his first of two huge shows at Wembley Stadium tonight (Friday 11 July), attention now turns to who could be joining him on stage – with 50 Cent expressing an interest in guesting with the rapper.
The support acts have already been announced as Danny Brown and Odd Future, but the ‘Slim Shady’ star is known to also invite a string of guests to collaborate on stage with him, including Dido at Reading and Leeds last year.
In an interview with Gigwise, 50 Cent opened up about his ambitions to get in on the action.
When asked if he’ll be returning to the UK to promote his new album Animal Ambition, 50 Cent replied: “Yeah, I’d like to soon. I think Em is going to be doing something at Wembley. I’ll see what’s going on and see if I can get in on that.”
Speaking out about his friend and collaborator Eminem, 50 Cent continued: “Em is so special to our culture and no one really gives him the credit for it. When they cast a film, they find people who are representations of the audience watching, so when you understand who’s actually consuming hip-hop culture, it’s not the guy who’s in my neighbourhood, it’s Little America and way beyond that too. They weren’t sure who they actually liked, but when you asked them if they liked hip-hop, they would all say Eminem.”
