These days 50 Cent is more of a behind-the-scenes person now that he's a successful TV producer, but that doesn't mean he's done rapping.

In a recent chat with People, Fif talked about Eminem's verse on Nas' "EPMD 2," where Em shouts out the G-Unit boss and other notable rappers. 50 — who first reacted to the verse when it dropped — said it made him pick up his pen.

"When Em does something that stands out to me, it's special," he told People. "He just had a performance on Nas' album, and it made me want to record again because of my connection to it. He sounded so good that I was like, 'I gotta write something' ... Even if I don't share it with the general public, it forced me back into writing, going to the studio and recording something."

Are you eager to hear Fif spit again or are you content with him being a TV producer and business person?
