50 Cent is back in the studio with his mentor, Eminem. Their latest creation is a track that will appear on 50’s upcoming Street King Immortal album called “Champions.”
The G-Unit general sat down with MTV and detailed how the song came together and what listeners can expect.
“We wrote the song in Detroit,” said the Queens rep. “I did go out there, and we recorded in his studios, his comfort zone. Em is a lab rat, I don’t know if you know this. You don’t see him unless he’s scheduled to be somewhere. Other than that, he’s probably writing something new now…It’s a really cool process. It’s usually more fun than it feels like work. It sounds like one of those hit records that you’ve heard from Eminem in the past, with an R&B singer in the chorus.”

Epps told Montreality he is good friends with the West Coast label’s boss Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith. During the interview, Epps also shares his thoughts on Kendrick as an artist.
“I think he’s a great lyricist, and the dude is really ahead of his time,” said Epps. “I think he really represents this generation. He reminds me a lot of Pac. The way he puts together his lyrics, how he speaks about real life, and it’s gang related, street.”
The sit down included Epps discussing his supposed feud with fellow comic Chris Rock. Epps previously stated on TheTom Joyner Morning Show there was not one good comedian in Rock’s movie Top Five. He even questioned why Rock keeps getting film opportunities.
“They just caught me in a position where I was just having a good time. I was a little hungover. Tom Joyner tricked me, and I just said it,” Epps explained. “I’ve never seen Top Five, so I don’t know if it’s good or not. I was just throwing out a blow. But I got love for Chris Rock – lil skinny ass.”
