Drake and Eminem squashed rumors of beef and potential diss tracks when the “Real Slim Shady” rapper joined Drake onstage at Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena on Tuesday night.

As seen in footage from the show, Eminem rose from a trap door in the middle of the stage to greet his hometown fans. “Make some noise for the greatest rapper to ever get on a microphone — he goes by the name of Eminem,” Drake told the crowd.

Eminem echoed the sentiment and said, “It’s an honor to share the stage with this man right here.”

The two then launched into “Forever,” off Lil Wayne’s 2007 mixtape Da Drought 3, which features all three rappers and Kanye West. It was also the theme song to Lebron James’ More than a Game documentary, which is fitting considering Drake brought the basketball star out during his Cleveland show earlier this week.

After the show, Drake shared a photo of him and Eminem on Instagram and wrote, “SHARED THE STAGE WITH THE GOAT FOR DETROIT. DONE THE HYPE.”
