Eminem performs Get Rich at SXSW show

2012-03-17 14:26
 
Austin - The rumours were true: Eminem joined 50 Cent to recreate Get Rich or Die Tryin' at South By Southwest.

It was a throwback to the heyday of gangster rap on Friday night at the music conference and festival in Austin, Texas, as 50 Cent hit the stage at the Shady Records showcase in a camouflage bullet-proof vest and a Yankees cap.

He laid down the 16 game-changing tracks from Get Rich, performing the entire album live for the first time.

He told nearly 2 000 fans, "It's been a minute", since that album came out in February 2003. Eminem and Dr Dre served as executive producers and featured rappers.

While Dr Dre didn't show, Eminem joined 50 on Patiently Waiting and a short encore that almost didn't come off because of lacklustre crowd reaction.
