Eminem To Star In Black Mafia Family TV Series As White Boy Rick
50 Cent said he is honored to have his close friend be part of the movie and accept the invitation. In an Instagram post, the rapper also said that a Detroit story is nothing without the very famous representative which is Eminem.
“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 post reads.
The Black Mafia Family series will be coming soon on STARZ. The character of White Boy Rick is a teenage drug dealer who has grown up in the Detroit East Side neighborhood. Soon after he started to deal with drugs he was busted and arrested by the FBI at the age of seventeen. He spent thirty-two years in jail and was released in 2020.
This is not the first time the story of White Boy Rick has been filmed. In 2018 a production with Matthew McConaughey in the main role turned into a blockbuster. Once White Boy Rick got out and is free, he filed a lawsuit against the FBI. He is seeking one hundred million dollars as compensation for the damages he suffered from their actions.
Back to the series Black Mafia Family – it is scheduled to appear on September 26 via Starz. The star cast does not end with Eminem. The viewers will also see Snoop Dogg appear as a pastor. Lala Anthony and Serayah will also appear, as well as other famous faces from the widescreen.
