The million selling rap pals join forces...

50 CENT will play his first ever shows in Britain when he supports EMINEM at MILTON KEYNES BOWL on June 21 and 22, NME.COM can reveal.

The shows precede the June 30 release of ’21 Questions’ , the second single from his five million-plus selling worldwide smash ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin”.

No other 50 Cent dates have been announced yet, but NME.COM understands that 50 Cent will be in Britain on June 20, prompting speculation that he might play a secret lo-key London show to warm-up for the two Eminem shows.
