50 Cent is saluting Eminem for being the only rapper to outsell him.

On social media, 50 Cent definitely likes to keep things interesting. The Power producer often posts about his many TV shows, his music, and more. On Thursday (July 13), the famous rapper took to Instagram to share a post about the top-selling rap albums. According to the post, the only rapper to have outsold 50 Cent would be the Rap God himself, Eminem.

The highest-selling rap album in its opening week was The Eminem Show, and then The Marshall Mathers LP second. 50 Cent followed in third with The Massacre before Lil Wayne’s The Carter III, and then later down the line, 50 Cent appeared again with Get Rich or Die Tryin’ with Encore by Eminem following very closely behind.

In his post, 50 Cent acknowledged that Eminem managed to do what no other rapper has, and that’s to sell more albums than him. The second slide showed the top-selling rap albums of the early 2000s, and unsurprisingly, Eminem was first again with The Eminem Show (5.7B), followed by 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’ with 3.7 billion equivalent album sales.

50 Cent gave Eminem his flowers in the caption of the post, where he also reminded other rappers of the chokehold he had on the game in the early 2000s. “The funny sh*t is only @eminem sold more then me. I made n***as so uncomfortable they don’t want to remember LOL,” Fifty wrote.
