G-Unit leader 50 Cent showed off his rapping skills Monday (November 26) night, appearing on popular music competition show "The Voice" and performing his new "My Life" single.
50 and Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine rocked the show's stage hours after the Street King Immortal anthem premiered online.
Well tonight The Voice viewers got a real treat as 50 Cent and Adam Levine joined forces to perform live 50 Cent's recent hit "My Life". As if watching sexy Adam Levine live on The Voice each week were not enough, to watch him perform on stage a song which has only just released this week is just about more than all us swooning fan girls can take! The Hip-hop giant 50 Cent's latest release featuring Eminem and Maroon 5's frontman Adam Levine has some pretty incredible and keepin' it real lyrics as it paints a picture of the pitfalls of fame and the desire to escape the larger than life image one's life has become.

Although Eminem is featured on the track, he did not appear on last night's broadcast.
Whether its for integration or ratings stunts, The Voice sure pulls out all of the stops with special numbers designed to boost singles sales on the iTunes charts. Last week, coaches Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera had a turn. Monday, it was Adam Levine and 50 Cent; Eminem, who also appears on the studio cut, did not appear. The song is off 50 Cent's new album, Street King Immortal, which will be available in time for the holidays. Terrific stocking stuffer material right there. (The Hollywood Gossip)

"THE VOICE with @adamlevine http://instagram.com/p/ShBcAqML7k/ check uot the video http://thisis50.co/1eq6h2," he tweeted Monday (November 26).

Over the weekend, "My Life" producer S1 discussed how the star-studded collaboration came together.
"So for the next year or so 50 Cent would mention me in all his interviews about me producing on his album. Through the grapevine I was hearing Eminem hopped on the record then from an Executive at Interscope Records I was told Adam Levine was gonna be on the record. Fast forward through 3 mixtapes and 1 album later, the song stood the test of time and its about to come out now as a single. Nobody but God because its very rare that an artist holds on to a beat for 2 ½ years with the face of music changing so fast these days. Oh I forgot to mention Just Blaze called me out the blue about a year ago. He was in the studio with Fif and they was trying to see which one of my beats to put Eminem on. Fif was saying the beat that is now "My Life" but Just Blaze was trying to talk him into using the other beat that Fif wanted from me. Crazy huh!" (iStandard Producers)
