According to The Wrap, Eminem will appear on one episode of the 50 Cent production and play the White Boy Rick. Rick Wershe Jr., aka White Boy Rick, was an FBI informant in his early teens when he sold drugs and guns as part of a Detroit gang.
Then he was dumped by the feds at 17 and arrested for cocaine possession. He was sentenced to life in prison, but eventually paroled and released in June 2020, at the age of 50.
“I’m honored and appreciative of my good friend Em for supporting my new show ‘BMF,’” 50 Cent said in a statement. “We couldn’t do a show based in Detroit without incorporating the legend that is Eminem.”
Curtis Jackson had been teasing the “BMF” show for a year and some new details are starting to unfold.
50 Cent also shared the news on his social media and wrote, “Oh yeah i’m bringing the big dogs out, 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.”
The upcoming Starz show “BMF” is inspired by the true story of two brothers, Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory, who rose from the streets of Southwest Detroit in the late 1980s.
