50 Cent is working on a new TV series called BMF about the legendary Black Mafia Family for Starz. Today, he revealed that Eminem will join the cast as a guest star as White Boy Rick, the infamous Detroit teenager turned undercover FBI informant.

As Consequence pointed out, this is Eminem’s first TV part since he played a fictionalized version of himself in Entourage in 2010.

Back in May, Eminem released a thrilling remix of “Killer,” featuring two of the most exciting young voices in rap: Jack Harlow and Cordae. “Killer” comes from Eminem’s 2020 smash hit LP, Music To Be Murdered By.

Eminem has managed to stay busy since Music was released back in September. At the end of April, Eminem dropped his first NFT (Non-Fungible Token) release on April 25 on NFT marketplace Nifty Gateway. The drop, dubbed ‘Shady Con,’ featured a variety of Eminem-approved NFT collectibles. In addition, the collection included original instrumental beats produced by Slim Shady himself specifically for the project. The tracks are available only as part of the limited-edition and one-of-a-kind NFTs.

Eminem first teased the announcement on Tuesday, retweeting the recent Saturday Night Live sketch featuring Pete Davidson in character as Eminem from the “Without Me” video, which parodied the song in an attempt to explain what an NFT is.

“I’ve been collecting since I was a kid, everything from comic books to baseball cards to toys, as well as every rap album on cassette I could get my hands on,” said Eminem. “Not much has changed for me as an adult…I’ve attempted to re-create some of those collections from that time in my life, and I know I’m not alone. I wanted to give this drop the same vibe of, ‘Oh, man I gotta get just that one or maybe even the whole set!’ It’s been a lot of fun coming up with ideas from my own collecting passion.”
