Fifty has recently partnered with WeTV to launch the investigative series Hip-Hop Homicides. Hosted by Van Lathan, the show examines the shocking deaths of rising stars in the genre like XXXTentacion and King Von. Fifty also inked a three-project partnership with Lusid Media for an unscripted crime series slated to debut later this year on Peacock. Additionally, he and Eminem are working on a TV adaptation of the latter’s 2002 semi-autobiographical film, 8 Mile.
As Billboard reports, 8 years after selling his radio income stream to Kobalt Music Group in 2015 (worth $6 million), Fif is now working on a studio album with Dr. Dre and Eminem has sent him new songs to collaborate on, and Nas has tapped him for a feature on his forthcoming King’s Disease 4 album. [Video of this part of the interview is not available yet]. And after a string of one-off shows and a subsequent international run last year, 50 is also planning to tour in the United States for the first time in 13 years. He is already set to perform at Las Vegas’ Lovers & Friends Festival in May, 2023.
In the interview, 50 Cent also praised Eminem: “Em’s not going to say the s–t the way I say it because it just is what it is. There’s his humble nature — he’d call me and ask to do him a favor and rap with him on a song. Like, “You know I am on your label, right? Yeah, whatever you need me to do.” He would always ask me, “Could you do me a favor? I always thought it would be dope if we did this together.” I’m like, “All right.”
