Eminem has a tremendous amount of respect for his longtime associate 50 Cent. Em spoke at-length about 50's drive to succeed and revealed that he's seen that spark in his friend and collaborator the entire time that they've been recording together.
"Ever since we started making music with Fif, it was kind of like a mutual respect thing and we became friends outside of the music," Em said of their bond.
"If you put the music aside, we can just talk about [anything], you know what I'm saying?" he continued. "50 is very big on the business aspect in his career. I would consider him a smart businessman. Not saying that I'm not, but I don't get into as much of the technical aspect in the business sense. Like, I have no idea what's going on. Ever. I don't even know where I'm at right now."
