In an interview with Gigwise, 50 Cent said that he would like to support Eminem at his Wembley Stadium shows in London on July 11 and 12. Here are highlights:
On how important Eminem is: "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."
On if he wants to perform in the UK: "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."
On tattoos in hip-hop: "Now you see tattoo culture has become a big part of hip-hop. It's so accepted that they do it like rock music. Heavy metal was the only area that I saw people so strange that they were tattooing their faces. I saw this one guy when he moved to New York that he would stand out as a complete weirdo, because you can't legitimately go looking for a job with that on your face. The man that actually decided to do that would have to have a purse like a lady with foundation in it to cover up his tattoo."
