Eminem starred in the 50 Cents gangster series
Eminem is taking another trip in front of the film camera: In “BMF”, the new series by his colleague 50 Cent, the rapper will play a cocaine dealer and FBI informant.
Eminem (48) will have a guest appearance in the new 50 Cent drama. As reported by “The Wrap”, the rapper is supposed to play the criminal White Boy Rick in one of the episodes.
“I feel honored and thank my good friend Em for supporting my new show ‘BMF’,” said Curtis Jackson (46) aka 50 Cent in a statement. “We couldn’t do a show in Detroit without incorporating the legend Eminem.”
Rick Wershe Jr. aka White Boy Rick is a legend in the hip hop scene. He was an FBI informant in his early teens selling drugs and weapons as part of a Detroit gang. At 17, he was suspended by federal authorities, arrested for cocaine possession, and sentenced to life in prison. He was paroled in June 2020 at the age of 50.
Iconic gangster son plays his father
“BMF”, short for Black Mafia Family, tells the true story of the brothers Demetrius and Terry Flenory, who built a drug trafficking empire in the late 1980s. In addition to Eminem, who has already proven his acting skills in his own film “8 Mile”, there are also rapper Snoop Dogg (49), actors Russell Hornsby (47) and Serayah (26). In addition, the role of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory will be cast by his real son Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr. (21).
In America, the television series is scheduled to run on Starz in September 2021, and in Germany it should be shown via Starzplay at the end of September.
