Similar to how Drake consistently shows Lil Wayne love for helping him get on majorly, 50 Cent steadfastly honors Eminem for taking a chance and signing him to Shady Records after the New York native was shot 9 times and other record labels wouldn’t touch him with a 10-foot pole. And to extend his gratitude, 50 Cent just announced that he’s began putting together an ‘8 Mile’ TV series to assist in furthering the “Not Afraid” rapper’s already ironclad “legacy,” though aspects regarding the television show are meager at the moment.

In a recent interview with Big Boy’s Neighborhood, the hip hop artist-turned-media magnate announced the television project and said Marshall Mathers was backing the movie’s conversion to TV. Solidifying that Eminem is aware of his ambitions, 50 Cent stated: “I wanna bring — I’m gonna bring, 8 Mile to television. We in motion.” After being questioned about what stage of production the series is in, the “Ghetto Qu’ran” spitter said: “It’s gonna be big. I’m working. I ain’t got no duds. I’m batting 100 … I think it should be there for [Eminem’s] legacy because it’s important to me that they understand it.”

The TV series news is sensational for ‘8 Mile‘ fans because according to Mekhi Phifer (who play Future, Rabbit’s best friend in the 2002 movie) there will not be a sequel to the cult-classic hip hop film. “Sometimes it’s just best to leave it alone,” Phifer told TMZ Hip Hop. “Once you make it a classic, no reason to fool around with it.” He furthered that an ‘8 Mile Part II’ could be engrossing, but they’d have to make it without him because he would never consider repeating his tenderhearted role. Phifer added: “It could be interesting, but I wouldn’t be in it and I’m sure Eminem wouldn’t be in it either.”

In an interview back in 2021 with Jimmy Kimmel, 50 Cent recollected that Slim Shady had an distressing time working on ‘8 Mile‘ and that it muddied the experience of Hollywood for him. 50 told Kimmel: “I think he had a terrible experience on the 8 Mile project because he didn’t want to go back ever again. There was a period Hollywood would offer me things to get him. Then his agent would go, ‘Yeah, this is good. Give it to 50 and let 50 take it.’ Projects that are offering $8 million to do it and he’ll look at it and go, ‘I just think that we should do Warriors. I’m like, ‘Did you miss the $8 million?’ It didn’t move him at all and then he’d go, ‘Let’s just go record records.’”

Are you looking forward to 50 Cent‘s ‘8 Mile‘ TV series?
