50 Cent claims his friendship with Eminem is unbreakable.

The 'Candy Shop' hitmaker sparked speculation there was tension between the rappers when he left Eminem's Shady/Aftermath records in February to go independent, but has now insisted the pair have an unshakable bond and credits all his success to his mentor.

He told the Huffington Post: "It's impossible to ruin the relationship Eminem and I have built up. There's no way I would say or do anything that would disrespect what he's done for me. I credit a huge portion of my success to Em because if it wasn't for him being excited about the project, no one else would have rallied around it."

50 Cent also claims Eminem is such an optimistic person that he doesn't have space in his life for negative energy and isn't even aware of drama.

The hip-hop star added: "At a point where you desperately need help, and a person comes and lends you a hand, I don't see how you could forget what that person did for you ... Every time something positive is happening, I always relate it to Em. He only has positive energy surrounding his aura with me.

"When there's something wrong, he's not even aware of it. I have to call and talk to him for him to understand it. We'll have conversations when I go out to Detroit to record, and I'll be telling him about it and he'll be like, 'Get the f**k out of here.' He's hearing it for the first time."
