50 Cent + Eminem Collaborate On ‘8 Mile’ TV Show: Look + Listen

On Friday (1.06) 50 Cent confirmed that he is adapting the 2002 film 8 Mile into a television series with the help of Eminem.

In an interview with Big Boy TV about Em’s semi-autobiographical film, 50 stated:

“We’re in motion.” “It’s gonna be big. I ain’t got no duds. I’m battin’ a hundred, I’m battin’ a hundred,” (likely referring to his long-running Starz series Power as well as its various spinoffs Power Book II: GhostPower Book III: Raising Kanan and Power Book IV: Force.)

Born Curtis Jackson, the multi-talented rapper/writer/television/film producer also had a role in the 2020 ABC legal drama For Life for the entirety of its two-season run. 

“Who’s idea is that? Did you have to convince Em? Because 8 Mile is a classic,” Big Boy then queried, leading 50 to respond, “No, I think it should be there for his legacy, because if you don’t see… it’s important to me that they understand it, you know what I mean?”

In November, 50 Cent served as guest host for The Drew Barrymore Show while the female host was out sick with COVID. Meanwhile, the artist otherwise known as Marshall Mathers got into a rap battle with Spider-Man on a limited edition cover of The Amazing Spider-Man #1 that same month.
