Eminem has been tapped to play White Boy Rick in the newest Starz drama, “BMF” (“Black Mafia Family”). The Encore emcee will star in one episode of the series, according to The Wrap.
“I’m honored and appreciative of my good friend Em for supporting my new show ‘BMF,’ ” Fiddy said in a statement. “We couldn’t do a show based in Detroit without incorporating the legend that is Eminem.”
Eminem performs onstage during the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival Weekend 1 at the Empire Polo Field on April 15, 2018 in Indio, California.
50 recently explained on tweeter that he directed Em’s episode, and used reverse aging technology on the rapper, similar to what director Martin Scorsese employed in his 2019 film, “The Irishman.”
“I directed ‘BMF’ EPISODE 7 it is amazing. I used the same digital de-aging special effects they used in ‘The Irishman.’ To take @eminem back to his teenage years,” Fiddy wrote.
Here’s more from New York Post:
