Well, so much for that bit of hip-hop drama.

Eminem joined Drake onstage Tuesday night at Detroit's Joe Louis Arena, putting an end to weeks of hyped-up rumors of bad blood.

It was a quick but explosive moment that sent an already adrenalized crowd into overdrive inside the packed arena, as the "hometown hero" — Drake's words — rose from below the stage to join on "Forever" toward the end of the 2½-hour show. Eminem's rapid-fire rhyming was drowned out by the continuous broadside of screams, as the hoodie-topped rapper paced the stage in his familiar crouched posture.

The 43-year-old rapper - whose real name is Marshall Mathers - has put rumors to bed there is a feud between him and the One Dance star as he joined him for a special hometown appearance on Tuesday.

Drake - who bowed down to the Sing For The Moment pioneer - introduced him as he said:

"Detroit, make some noise for the greatest rapper that ever got on a motherfucking microphone - he goes by the name of Eminem.

Legendary shit tonight."

Slim Shady then entered through a trap door for his third appearance in concert in eight months, which saw Drake - whose real name is Aubrey Graham - bow to him several times.

Eminem admitted it was an "honor" to be standing next to the star and performing with him as they performed Forever, which they collaborated on in the studio with Kanye West and Lil' Wayne.

He said:

"It's an honor to share the stage with this man right here."

Eminem has since shared a photograph of him alongside Drake on his Instagram, captioning the post: "Views from The Joe. #WelcometoDetroit (sic)."

Drake has also posted the same picture to his social media site with the caption on his upload reading: "SHARED THE STAGE WITH THE GOAT FOR DETROIT. DONE THE HYPE. (sic)."

It follows speculation of a feud between the pair, but they look to have shut the rumors down in style. Eminem's appearance at Drake's Detroit gig comes days after rumors about a supposed beef between Drake and Eminem surfaced after DJ Ebro told New York City radio station Hot 97 that the “Not Afraid” rapper may be coming for Drake because of the “Hotline Bling” singer’s recent spat with rapper Joe Budden that began a few months ago when Drizzy clapped after Budden, during a podcast appearance, criticized his album “Views.”

Later, Ebro took to Twitter to explain his prank, calling it a "joke" that "people ran with." He also said he was only talking in "jest" when he spoke about the supposed beef.

After the rumors about the feud heated up, Drake dissed Hot 97 during his show at Madison Square Garden on Aug. 4.

Drake’s "Summer Sixteen" tour with Future moves to Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center Wednesday night.
