Includes an exclusive Eminem freestyle over 50 Cent's 'W***sta'

Eminem on 50 Cent
50 Cent live at Milton Keynes"When I heard 50, it was really weird, you know, because we got the same jeweller, we got the same attorney, there was a lot of similarities happening. It was destined to be.

"Paul kept saying, "You gotta hear 50's new sh*t" and I was like, "OK".

"My honest opinion, and people will say this and I've seen this in magazines: "It's not gangsta to get shot..." It's not gangsta to get shot. It's gangsta to bounce the f*ck back, and get on your feet.

"The way 50 came out when he hit the mixtapes was like ridiculous. He seemed like "I don't care about nothing. This is me, this is my story" and that's what struck me, everything he was saying was so real. We gotta get him."

50 Cent on Eminem
Eminem live at Milton Keynes"He puts so much life into his music... you know who Kim is, you know who his Mom is, and that's what people like about his music, you get to know him as a person. He can never run out of music, he can never run out of topics and issues, cause that's his life."

On the opening night at Milton Keynes
Westwood: "That was part of hip hop history for the UK. Those 70,000 people out there, that was a beautiful thing. The UK really came out and showed love today."

Eminem: "It was really exciting."
