50 Cent gave fans a first look at Eminem as White Boy Rick in his popular Starz series, “Black Mafia Family.” Slim Shady portrays infamous FBI informant Richard Wershe Jr., a.k.a. White Boy Rick, in the series’ embattled episode No. 7.
50 posted pictures of Eminem as White Boy Rick on Instagram ahead of the episode’s air date on Nov. 14. “Eminem thank you for doing this for me,” he captioned the post. “I love you bro, you know I’m rolling wit you till the wheels fall off.”
As reported by REVOLT, episode 7 was accidentally aired by Starz this weekend in what the network called a “technical glitch.” Taking to Instagram on Monday (Nov. 8), 50 said he was extremely frustrated by the error especially since he directed the highly anticipated episode.
“Episode 7 of ‘BMF’ is the best work I have done directing to date,” he wrote on the platform. “I’m disappointed that STARZ handled this so poorly. I used my personal relationships to make things happen they couldn’t have made happen.”
“Starz is a shit show, they better sell it fast,” he continued. “They put the fucking ‘BMF’ show on, then took it down. What network does that? They just ruined the anticipation of the episode I directed, I WORKED HARD ON THIS. I can’t work with these people anymore.”
According to 50, the first season of “BMF” was scheduled to end with episode 8 on Nov. 21, which is also the same day as the season two premiere of “Power Book II: Ghost.”
“Then these shit head people put the fucking episode out for three hours then take it down,” he explained. “This is not ok. When I get uncomfortable, I make everybody uncomfortable. Now, who getting fired? Until you figure that out, don’t call my phone, respectfully.”
Episode 7 featuring Eminem is currently set to return to Starz on Nov. 14, followed by the season finale on Nov. 21. See pictures of Eminem as White Boy Rick on Instagram below.
