BMF tells the real-life story of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory, who formed the Black Mafia Family – one of the most influential and powerful criminal empires in 1980s Detroit.

Eminem will be playing real-life FBI informant Rick Wershe, aka White Boy Rick, who became an informant as a teen and was later busted for selling drugs, spending decades in jail before being released in 2020.

While announcing Eminem‘s role, 50 Cent explained why it was important to have the Detroit native take part in BMF.

“I’m honored and appreciative of my good friend Em for supporting my new show BMF,” 50 Cent said in a statement to The Wrap. “We couldn’t do a show based in Detroit without incorporating the legend that is Eminem.”

BMF marks one of Eminem‘s only acting roles since starring in the 2002 movie 8 Mile.

BMF is set to premiere on September 26th on Starz.
