Eminem’s ‘8 Mile’ TV Adaptation Confirmed by 50 Cent

Eminem hasn’t made much music in the past decade as he’s been focusing on other ventures, and one of those might be coming to television soon.

His ascension into the rap game was chronicled in a biographical film, 8 Mile. Now, his mentee-turned-friend 50 Cent is committed to bringing the story to television.

“I’m gonna bring [Eminem’s] 8 Mile to television…We in motion,” 50 revealed on Real 92.3’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood. “It’s gonna be big. I’m working. I ain’t got no duds. I’m batting 100,” he added, noting that he feels it’s a necessary part of Eminem’s story. I think it should be for his legacy, he noted.

The Detroit native is lauded as one of the greatest rappers of all time, and a surprising contribution to the hip-hop scene.
