Eminem performs onstage at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards at Nokia Theatre on April 13, 2014 in Los Angeles.

For 50 Cent's birthday Thursday (July 6), his good friend and labelmate Eminem recorded a personal video, in which he says that one of Fif's verses on "Places to Go," from the 8 Mile soundtrack, almost convinced him to quit rapping.

Em even re-creates the tongue-twister verse in the video: “Picture a perfect picture/ Picture me in a pimp hat/ Picture me starting shit/ Picture me busting my gat/ Picture police mad they ain’t got a picture of that.”

After wrapping up the verse, Eminem admits: “Yeah, so, that made me want to stop rapping, for like a long time."
