– US rapper, Eminem, declined to join three of America’s best selling rappers, 50 Cent, Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg
– 50 Cent revealed through a Big Boy TV interview the reason why Emimen made that decision, saying he chose family over making more money
American rapper Eminem has turned down a collaborative tour with three of America’s best selling rappers 50 Cent, Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg, an opportunity that most artistes would have grabbed without thinking twice.
People worldwide know the tour would have been one of the biggest and most selling in the history of hip hop, especially with some of the biggest names in the rap industry performing.
The event was a huge success but if Eminem was involved, and judging from his massive fan base, it would have been 10 times bigger.
Unfortunately, some people, like Eminem, value family more than money.
In a recent interview with Big Boy TV, 50 Cent revealed reason why Eminem turned down the joint tour was because the fellow rapper was afraid he would be gone for too long and would miss out on the growth of his daughter, Hailey.
“You do not believe how much money we would’ve made. And Em was like – there was so many dates at the time the way they laid it out – that he was like, ‘I just don’t want to go on tour and come back and Hailey’s grown,’” said Fiddy.
The Candy Shop hitmaker added the tour was collectively worth KSh 10 billion (US$100 million).
He also admitted the dates of the tour were inconsistent and that the run would have grossed so much money that “when you come back, everyone has the money that no one has to answer the phone”.
Eminem chose to see his daughter grow instead of making more money, which he already has from his performances and award-winning hits.
The rapper has quietened down over the years, but when he drops something new, it is always a hit. The famous rapper is selective with his work, and for good reason.
