In a recent interview on BigBoyTV's YouTube channel, 50 Cent revealed that he's working on bringing the iconic 2002 film 8 Mile to television, saying that it's already "in motion".

"I'm gonna bring his 8 Mile to television," the rapper, actor, producer and entrepreneur said. In even more exciting news, Eminem is on board for another semi-autobiographical telling of his life's journey.

50 Cent added, "It's gonna be big. I'm working. I ain't got no duds. I'm batting 100. I think it should be there for his legacy because it's important to me that they understand it."

The television series will also provide a "backstory" to the 2002 film and depict B-Rabbit's younger years.

In August last year, Eminem, Dr Dre, and Snoop Dogg were snapped in the studio together. Eminem shared an in-studio photo of himself, Dre and Snoop on Instagram, captioning it with "just a few bros.. hangin out."  

The photo hints that the trio may come together on a recorded track, just as they did for Dr Dre's 1999 album 2001. The sharing of the photo also came within days of Snoop Dogg telling Entertainment Tonight that he and Dr Dre are working together on a record together for the first time in 30 years.

"We cooking up a little something," he said. "I don't wanna talk about it too much, but we're back together again.

"It's been 30 years since we worked on a record, and we're doin' something, we're workin' on something." The tease of the rap gods working together on a new record already had the rap world's rumour mill running wild. Now with Eminem literally putting himself in the picture, the hype is sure to intensify. 

The trio last performed together publicly as part of the massive Super Bowl LVI halftime party in February. They took the stage alongside Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent and Anderson.Paak at the event. 

Eminem was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame last year. Inducted by his longtime collaborator Dr Dre, Eminem performed a medley including My Name Is, Rap God, Not Afraid and Forever, and brought out Aerosmith's Steven Tyler for a live recreation of the Dream On sample found on Sing For The Moment and Ed Sheeran to reprise Dido's chorus on Stan.
