Rapper Eminem has joined 50 Cent’s upcoming Starz drama ‘BMF’ (Black Mafia Family).
The star will play the role of FBI informant Rick Wershe known as White Boy Rick- in the starz series BMF which is based on a real life story of two brothers Demetrius ‘Big Meech’ Flenory and Terry Southwest T Flenory.
Eminem’s involvement in the movie was revealed by 50 Cent in a statement saying he was ‘honoured and appreciated’ having Em in his team.
“I’m honoured and appreciative of my good friend Em for supporting my new show ‘BMF’
“We couldn’t do a show based in Detroit without incorporating the legend that is Eminem.”
The show is a major milestone for Slim Shady who hasn’t acted major roles since his big screen debut in the ‘8 Mile’ movie of 2002.
The movie which is based on a true story traces one of the most powerful and influential criminal empires from 1980s Detroit.
In the movie Shady starts off as a teenager and later gets arrested for dealing with drugs only to be released decades later in 2020.
“I directed BMF Episode 7 it is amazing. I used the same dr aging special effects they used in The Irishman. To take @eminem back to his teenage years. Green light Gang,” tweeted Fiddy as he explained how Eminem will be de-aged for the role.
