Rapper Eminem made a surprise appearance at the Black Entertainment (BET) Awards on Tuesday (27JUN06) to show his support for good friend Busta Rhymes.
Eminem, real name MARSHALL MATHERS, has been battling personal issues, including a second divorce from his wife KIM, and addiction to sleeping pills.
According to the rapper's representatives, Eminem wrote a new verse to the TOUCH IT remix specifically for the show because of his love for his pal.
Rhymes, real name TREVOR SMITH, tells MTV.com, "Eminem is one of my favourite artists.
"To be able to have him on the same stage with Mary J Blige, Missy Elliott, Rah Digga, PAPOOSE, Lloyd Banks, WILL.I.AM, Kelis and SPLIFF STAR for my performance was one of the biggest highlights of my career."
There are no official plans to release the new remix with Eminem's verse, but audio from the awards ceremony is being widely circulated on the internet.
