50 Cent is working on an ‘8 Mile’ TV series for Eminem’s ‘Legacy’

50 cents has announced that he has started work on one 8 miles TV series to help further Eminem‘s already bulletproof “legacy,” though details are currently sparse.

The rapper turned TV mogul announced the project in an interview with Big Boy’s Neighborhood and said that Slim Shady supported the film’s transition to television.

“I will bring – I bring, 8 miles to TV,” 50 Cent said, confirming that Em is aware of his plans.

“We’re in motion,” 50 said after being asked what stage of production the show is in. “It’s going to be big. I’m working. I don’t have any duds. I’m hitting 100 … I think it should be there for [Eminem’s] heritage because it is important to me that they understand that.”

The news comes a few months after that 8 miles the soundtrack celebrated its 20th anniversary with an “Expanded Edition” reissue that arrived as the original album was certified 6x platinum. The new edition features all 12 original songs along with instrumentals for each of the tracks.

All of the original cast members may not be game for one 8 miles renew. Mekhi Phifer, who starred as Rabbit’s friend Future, (an homage to Em’s real-life childhood friend Proof) in the 2002 film, recently told TMZ Hip Hop that there will “never” be a sequel to the beloved rap film.

“Sometimes it’s just best to leave it alone. Once you make it a classic, there’s no need to fool around with it,” he said. He added that a sequel might be interesting, but he would never consider reprising his beloved role.

“It could be interesting, but I wouldn’t be in it, and I’m sure Eminem wouldn’t be either,” he said.

50 Cent will probably make sure that if Marshall Mathers is involved, he will have a better experience in Hollywood than he had the first time. In a 2021 interview with Jimmy Kimmel, the Queens legend recalled Eminem had a torturous time working on 8 miles and that it tainted the Hollywood experience for Slim Shady.

“I think he had a terrible experience there 8 miles project because he never wanted to come back,” he thought. “There was a period when Hollywood would offer me things to get him. Then his agent would say, ‘Yeah, this is good. Give it to 50 and let 50 take it.’

“Projects offering $8 million to do it, and he’ll look at it and say, ‘I just think we should do it Warriors. I’m like, “Did you miss the $8 million?” It didn’t move him at all, and then he said, “Let’s just go in and make records.”

An 8 miles The TV series is just the latest project on 50 Cent’s agenda. The 47-year-old mogul previously said that he plans to release new music in 2023 as he pays tribute to his longtime Detroit friend, who reportedly racked up over five billion views on YouTube in 2022, making him the most popular rapper on the platform last year.

“That’s my boy,” he wrote alongside a caption about Em’s YouTube dominance. “I want to remind people I’m cute this year. New music New TV New movie let’s go! #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi.”
