If 50 has his way, he and Eminem will get together for a collaboration EP at some point in the future...whether Em is down with the idea or not, I just can't tell. Our homie, music journalist Rahman Dukes, sat down with both Hip-hop heavyweights at 50's video shoot in Detroit for the track "My Life". The exchange between Em and 50 is pretty interesting. Eminem's manager, Paul Rosenberg, shouted out "Watch The Throne" from off camera and like a star running back, 50 caught the pass and ran with it.
"He said Watch the Throne," 50 responded to Rosenberg, laughing at the immediate assertion. Eminem, who was caught off guard by the exchange wouldn't offer up a comment, but 50 didn't let it go, adding, "An EP maybe."
Eminem looked like a deer caught in headlights and brushed the question off by responding with, "No pressure, right."
In the next MTV clip, 50 talks about the huge influence that Eminem has had on his career and even implies that Eminem plays more of a crucial role than Dr. Dre does.
"I can't accept constructive criticism from someone if I'm not sure what their intentions are," explained 50 Cent. "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."
During the interview, Eminem refocused the conversation on 50's upcoming album, Street King Immortal, and away from a possible "Watch The Throne" type album, revealing that the two of them already have a few joint tracks coming on there.
"We actually got a couple of songs on this album, too. We have another song off of this album," said Eminem.<iframe src="http://media.mtvnservices.com/embed/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:860680/cp~id%3D1698003%26vid%3D860680%26uri%3Dmgid%3Auma%3Avideo%3Amtv.com%3A860680" height="288" width="512"></iframe>

Would you be interested in hearing a collaboration album between Eminem and 50 Cent? If it happened, the album would surely be on the same scope as Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch The Throne and with Em's fanbase, the album might even be bigger. Let's hope Eminem comes around on this one.
