50 Cent remains one of the most influential rappers in the history of the Hip-Hop world. 50 Cent made his mark in various mediums such as games, movies, books and more. 50 Cent supports DaBaby, and the rap legend is also known to defend those he believes in. He also previously reacted to Eminem showing him some love on the new Nas album.
Last month, it was revealed that Eminem was will be guest starring in 50 Cent’s ‘BMF’ series as “White Boy Rick. Eminem has also acted in 2002’s ‘8 Mile’ film, which received lots of praise from fans and critics alike.
While speaking during Jimmy Kimmel Live!, 50 Cent stated that he believes Eminem had a terrible experience while filming ‘8 Mile,’ which might have brought an end to a potentially lucrative career in Hollywood.
“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.’”
It has been well documented that Eminem suffered from substance abuse issues during that period of his life. Reports of him being intoxicated on the set of 8 Mile have made their way through the rumor mill for years.
‘BMF’ will be releasing on Starz on September 26. It remains to be seen how the series will turn out to be.
