50 Cent Says Eminem Is 'Best Rapper In The World'

50 Cent has said his pal and collaborator Eminem is the best rapper in the world - but also managed to send a little bit of praise his own way.

Fiddy - real name Curtis Jackson - shared a snap of himself stood alongside Eminem - real name Marshall Mathers - to celebrate the fact their 2003 track 'Patiently Waiting' has hit one hundred million streams on Spotify. A mind-boggling feat, I'm sure you'll agree.

Captioning the photo, 50 Cent wrote: "This combination will always work. I think it has something to do with EM being the best rapper in the world but I'm not so bad. LOL." He also included the adorable hashtag #friendsforever.

And the feelings of admiration are mutual, with Eminem publicly praising his mate back in January.

50 Cent was awarded his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Eminem used the moment to give a heartfelt speech to his friend, saying: "Of all the things I don't remember about 2002, I have a very clear memory of the first time I met 50.

"One of the first things I noticed about 50 was his presence because it just kind of felt like, he's going to be a star. It just seemed like he was the whole package.

"Dre and me knew that if something worked on us, it was going to work on the rest of the world and I'm glad we trusted our instincts.

"I just want to say man, I'm here today because this is not only a business partner to me, it's one of the best friends I've ever known in the world." Oh mate, I'm filling up here.

He added: "I would say that it's much more fun to be his friend than it is to be his enemy because this guy is f***ing relentless. And he won't stop. And the same way that he's relentless in his battles, he's also relentless in his business.

"He's an artist, an entrepreneur, an actor, a director, a producer, he can juggle, he's great at Scrabble. He pretty much does it all. We're always up for a game of Scrabble, guys."
