50 Cent Reveals His Collaboration with Dr. Dre & His Work on ''8 Mile'' Tv Show

50 Cent shared more insights about the new album he’s going to release later this year, indicating that Dr. Dre will be a part of the project.

During a current interview with Big Boy’s Neighborhood, 50 Cent was asked about a recent Instagram post that caught him declaring “new music, new TV” and a “new Movie.” Fif told that as soon as he released the ''happy news'' with fans, his Shady/Aftermath group went out to let the rapper know that the family is ready to work.e

“As soon as I said that, I got a text from [Eminem] that he had already spoken to Dre, and that Dre is in there and he got some crazy stuff for me to go hear,” he said. “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 really 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.”

The G-Unit boss proceeded on to say that there have even been times in the past when Dr. Dre gifted beats he had made for himself for 50 Cent to use.

the Queens rapper informed during the interview that he’s begun working on an 8 Mile TV series to support further Eminem‘s already bulletproof “legacy.”

All of the original cast members might not be game for an 8 Mile revamp. Mekhi Phifer, who played Rabbit’s friend Future, in the 2002 film, just told TMZ Hip Hop that there will “never” be a sequel to the special rap film.

“Sometimes it’s just best to leave it alone. Once you make it a classic, no reason to fool around with it,” he stated. He added that a sequel could be enjoyable, but he would never feel like reprising his beloved role.

In spare to the return of BMF, which released its second season on Friday (January 6), 50 Cent’s G-Unit Television & Films is ready to continue expanding its catalog in 2023. Despite having revealed an end to his long-standing collaboration with STARZ in September of last year, the mogul just revealed objectives for a new series at the network.

According to a statement from Deadline, 50 is the director producing a new scripted drama series titled Fightland, which tracks the story of a former, world champion fighter that discovers himself on the dark side of the sport after his childhood friend and exercise partner disappears.

To find his best friend, the discredited fighter must get back to the sport that almost destroyed his life and cost him everything he had to flee. The show comes from the brains of the writing duo Daniel Fajemisin-Duncan and Marlon Smith, who both grew up in South London.
