Even though Starz didn’t air last week’s episode of BMF, 50 Cent is making sure he’s keeping up with its hype.
Fif shared leaked photos of Eminem in BMF as “white boy Rick.” Eminem’s character is scheduled to be revealed in the upcoming episode on November 14.
Hip Hop DX points out; Em plays the role of the famed FBI informant who was sentenced to life in prison at the age of 17 for possession of cocaine. Take a look:
Fif is excited for the next episode because he directed it, however, he was disappointed with the network for not airing it. In his caption, 50 said,
“Episode 7 of BMF is the best work i have done directing to date. I’m disappointed that STARZ handled this so poorly. I used my personal relationships to make things happen they couldn’t have made happen. @eminem thank you for doing this for me. I love you bro, you know i’m rolling wit you till the wheels fall off.”
The publication also points out, the real White Boy Rick gave Eminem props and called the rapper a “professional.” White Boy Rick said,
“Everything he [Eminem] does, he does very well. His music speaks for itself. He’s an icon, he’s a legend. This for him will be a small thing. I think he’ll kill it whatever he does, man. I’m a fan. It’s an honor to have him do it. He’s a Detroit legend, I have a huge name here. So, from one Detroiter to another, just kill it.” Hot New Hip Hop points out he also said, “He was actually one of the first people that was looking at doing the movie about me so it’s pretty cool that later down the line, he gets to take on this role.”
Eminem hasn’t publicly spoken out on his movie role, but will you be tuned in to see him?
