Rapper 50 Cent thrilled fans during his show at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival on Friday night by bringing out mentor Eminem for a rare surprise performance.
The In Da Club star performed his breakthrough album Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ in its entirety at the event in Austin, Texas, but was met with a lacklustre response from the crowd as he reportedly forgot lyrics and cut songs short.

50 Cent left the stage prior to the encore and an MC attempted to hype up the audience, telling them, “Ya’ll are bulls**t, do you even know what just happened?… I don’t know what’s going on… I’m getting paid to talk right now.”

However, the rapper won rapturous applause when he returned to the stage with his friend Eminem to close the show with a 10-minute encore that included the pair’s hits ‘Till I Collapse and Crack a Bottle.
