50 Cent recently expressed his admiration for teen rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em and explained how the rapper's dance-based singles continue to have a major impact.
According to Fif, the Atlanta, Georgia-bred rapper's music plays at Eminem's Detroit mansion.
"I was at Em's house," 50 said in an interview. "He has a basketball court that doubles as [Eminem's daughter] Hailie's dance studio. That dance studio has the hardwood floors. I watched the kids do the Soulja Boy dance to the song. They're into organized dancing. That was something they were into. They're a world way from where Soulja Boy comes from. But it's translating and it's actually a hit record and he continues to make hit records that work." (MTV)
The G-Unit leader shocked fans last month by appearing on Lil Wayne's America's Most Wanted tour during Soulja Boy's set in California.
"Okay, you're right," Fif told the screaming Anaheim crowd as he prepared to perform. "What's up? I'm in that 760 leanin when I'm stuntin'/I blow 50 G's, I mean with ease like this is nothin'/Please don't interrupt me when I'm talkin to my jeweler/He's puttin them diamonds all over my Franck Muller/Me I get busy, I put that work in if it's worth it/Come through hit you up, I'll make a crime scene perfect."

Fif previously co-signed the rapper's hit-making talent earlier this year.
"At the end of the day, knowing that you have that hit record at 16 is gonna change his mother's house, put his mom in a new house, make Christmas different for his sister and kids that look up to him," Fif explained. "He hotter than half them n*ggas down there to me. He got commercial, hit records...He was beefing with Charles Hamilton." (Radio Planet TV)
In addition to receiving props from 50, Soulja Boy is also reportedly working on Kanye West's upcoming album.
"I'm working on Kanye's next album right now," Soulja Boy revealed in an interview. "We working together on production because he makes beats and I make beats. Right now I?m remixing a couple of records for him. I'm actually working on [Kanye's] album while he?s working on my album." (Rap Up)
