50 Cent and Eminem are coming together once again, but this time they won’t be exchanging bars. Rapper turned actor/producer Curtis 50 Cent Jackson has just announced that his mentor Eminem will be appearing as a guest actor and playing the role of ‘White Boy Rick’ in one of the episodes of his upcoming crime series ‘Black Mafia Family ‘.
Black Mafia Family is an upcoming American drama television series, which follows the Black Mafia Family, a drug and money laundering organization. It is set to premiere on Starz in September 2021.
Rick Wershe Jr aka White Boy Rick was the youngest FBI informant ever at the age of 14 in the 1980s, as he sold guns and drugs as a member of the Detroit Gang. Eminem hasn’t appeared in any movie since his cameo in 2015’s comedy flick ‘The Interview’.
50 Cent shared the news with the caption “I couldn’t do a show based in Detroit without incorporating the legend @eminem. Got him to play white Boy Rick in BMF, this shit is out of here.Green Light Gang”
Eminem isn’t the only hip-hop star set to make an appearance in the show, back in March Westcoast’s Snoop Dogg was announced to play the role of “Pastor Swift,” the Flenory family’s spiritual advisor.
