50 Cent is a boss. The G-Unit mogul has demonstrated that many times through his various business ventures over the years which include his SMS Audio headphone line, Cheetah Vision Films, Street King energy shot, G-Unit and G-Note record labels, G-Unit Publishing and much more.
When it's time to take control of a situation 50 is always in boss mode except when he's working with Eminem. During a recent conversation with MTV News, the "My Life" rapper admits he's comfortable sitting back and letting Slim Shady take control.
Because Eminem took a chance when he signed the Southside Jamaica Queens emcee and has been supportive throughout his entire career, 50 knows he has his best interests at heart and trusts Em's judgement.
"I get real comfortable when I got Em around." 50 said. "Because the pressure is off of me. Now I get a chance to be the understudy and let him be the boss of the actual situation and run the show. You gotta follow the chain of command and play your position at different points. In all those other spaces and times you run into me I'm the boss and everybody around me in under me. It's comfortable not to be in those situations and let it be him. Whenever he's around he's running the show."
"I'm not even sure what he's talking about. I just came here to hang out," Eminem joked. "I always wanna be there to kind of executive produce or oversee things. Fif knows what he's doing so I don't really gotta tell him much. At this point in his career he's done enough where he just brings me the records and I always wanna just give my opinions."
50 added that Em has helped him out a lot on his upcoming Street King Immortal album, which will be released on February 26, 2013.
"He's been a big help on this album. I can't accept constructive criticism from someone if I'm not sure what their intentions are," Fif explained. "But when someone's been in my corner my entire musical career — I'll say this, Dre's done wonderful things for me in my career, but the idea of working with 50 Cent came from Eminem."
