50 Cent revealed several surprises for his fans as he unveiled the next era of his career, including a new album, several collaborations, and projects.
Thanks to their iconic and critically acclaimed Super Bowl Halftime Show, the world has seen what a powerhouse 50 Cent is with Eminem and Dr. Dre.
Aside from their award-winning performance, 50 Cent, Eminem, and Dr. Dre have a long history of collaborations, including 2004’s “Encore” and 2009’s “Crack A Bottle.”
However, this time, in addition to working on music, 50 Cent will collaborate with Eminem on a television series.
“8 Mile” debuted as a film in 2002, starring the “Love the Way You Lie” rapper, Brittany Murphy, Anthony Mackie, and others. It tells the story of Eminem’s life and career in a semi-autobiographical manner.
50 Cent said:
“I’m gonna bring his ‘8 Mile’ to television. It’s gonna be big. I’m working. I ain’t got no duds. I’m battin’ a hundred.”
According to Rolling Stone, the rapper produced the first season of the show, which features Eminem as a guest star, but the show will be more contemporary.
“It’s a modern version. Think The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. I think it should be there for his legacy, because if you don’t see… it’s important to me that they understand it.”
Aside from the television show, 50 Cent is preparing to release a new album later this year, according to HiphopDX.
The rapper revealed:
“As soon as I said that, I got a text from [Eminem] that he had already spoke to Dre, and that Dre is in there and he got some crazy stuff for me to go hear.”
He and Dr. Dre have a long history together, and he knows that whatever the legendary producer creates will be gold, and 50 Cent has complete faith in him.
“This is my process: I’ll go make something, what I can find, the best music that I can put my hands on. And when I feel real good about it, I bring it to put pressure on Dre to offer me something. ‘Cause he’ll have something… He’s always had something.”
Aside from these projects, 50 Cent is also an executive producer for “Fightland,” a drama series that has yet to be released.
