50 Cent is hoping to team up with Kanye West in the studio – despite the pair’s rocky past.

The rap rivals went head-to-head in the albums chart in 2007, and have had a tumultuous relationship since West’s Graduation disc outsold 50 Cent’s Curtis.

The In Da Club hitmaker revived their feud last year, publicly slamming the star for ruining Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards by jumping on stage and declaring Beyonce the true winner.

But the hip-hop star – real name Curtis Jackson – is ready to put the past behind him and hire West to work on his next release.

He tells MTV.com, “Don’t even be surprised if you hear me and Kanye, (I want) just talented artists – period. I’ma (sic) collaborate and make a monster this time. Ain’t nobody off limits to me in my head. If creatively they have something they feel is something for the project, I’m with it.”
