Two-thirds of the infamous “Three-Headed Monster” were out in New York this week: Eminem appeared on BET’s “106 & Park” and brought out G-Unit General 50 Cent as a surprise guest to help share the triumph of Em’s Relapse debuting at #1 on the Billboard albums chart.
“I think we’re absolutely in a great space, considering his project is where it’s at, #1. And it’s working,” 50 said about the “monster” that is him, Eminem and Dr. Dre. “Until they find a collaboration of artists that work together as well as we work together, I don’t think we got issues.”
50 said he and the two guys that signed him work so well together because everybody knows their roles.
“One of the most important portions of our relationships is us understanding our positions,” Fif explained. “I’m like King Kong when I’m by myself, and when [me, Em and Dre] come back, come together, I’m actually the smallest person in our circle. I get a chance to be down to earth.”
So if Fif is the hairy beast that terrified the natives of Skull Island as well as the visitors of the Empire State Building, Em says he’s the creature that blew fire and stomped through Japan.
“Godzilla? Maybe Godzilla,” Em smiled about what creature he might be. “I don’t know. I think the best thing about the combination of me, 50 and Dre is that we take criticism from each other, we listen to input. We’re always trying to do better.”
So where was Dr. Dre? Maybe working. Both 50 and Slim Shady assured the live audience and the fans at home the legendary producer’s long-awaited Detox album is well under way, and on its way.
“I heard eight records,” 50 revealed. He also said that Dre has just under a dozen songs finished.
“There’s probably 10 records,” Eminem confirmed.
