Eminem Lands First Major Acting Role Since 8 Mile

Headlines 18/08/2021

Slim Shady is set to return to acting with a role in 50 Cent's latest project Black Mafia Family.

The 48-year-old rapper is set to play Rick Wershe Jr, aka White Boy Rick - a man who became an FBI informant in his teens before landing himself in jail.

"We couldn't do a show based in Detroit without incorporating the legend that is Eminem," 50 Cent said.

Black Mafia Family is based on the story of brothers, Demetrius 'Big Meech' and Terry 'Southwest T' Flenory, who were well-known on the streets of Detroit during the 1980s.

The pair would go on to create one of the biggest crime families in the US.

The series is set to premiere on September 26th, however, there are no confirmed ways we can watch in New Zealand so far.
