Em and Bugsy together on one album would both revive hip hop and start some serious beef. Both of these rappers are known for going hard at their competition. Before they release this album, the record label would need to set aside a couple million in lawyer fees and security detail.
Recently on BET’s “106 & Park,” 50 Cent spoke on how he, Eminem and Dr. Dre are probably the most powerful crew of artists in the music business today. Dre’s a legend, Eminem is rolling — his Relapse went #1 last week — and Fif has been very successful as well. But since 50 and Em are so tight, will we ever see the two of them make an entire LP together? DJ Whoo Kid says the project has been talked about, but he isn’t holding his breath waiting for it to happen.
“They been talking about that sh– for years,” Whoo Kid said. “We even talked about it in the mixtape format. It’s an incredible situation [that] I hope one day goes down. Who wouldn’t want to see that? I don’t know what they gonna call that. I remember Em joked about that, ‘Let’s call it Ebony and Ivory.’ Society is gonna have to force these guys to do it … the scheduling, Em’s album, 50’s album — it’s all scheduling. We’ve talked about it the last three, four years. You would want to see it, right?”
Historical is the only thing we can think about these two coming together.
