On the 8 Mile series he is developing with Eminem:
“I’m developing the 8 Mile film into a series. It’s is expected to be just as big as the feature film and just huge. It’ll be huge. The interest in it, the time period, 8 Mile was capturing was further back. So as we move it into modern times you’ll see things about how we function now.”
Are y’all here for it? 50’s BMF series has already proven he knows how to tell the stories of Detroit legends. Will you be watching the 8 Mile tv show?
On the value of a good work ethic:
“Some people start to take off immediately, and they get a lot. Other people need to work at it until they’re good. And it’s not negative that you have to work at it. Because an easy job is a hard job, people forget they’re working. And the people that have to work to become good enough, they have the habit of working, so they continue to work, and they can sustain it because of the work that they had to do in the beginning.”
We love it when people like 50 Cent are so open about what it takes to be successful because it helps inspire people might not listen to that advice from others.
On his goal of making diversity the norm:
“The next milestone I want to reach, the next goal for me would be able to make diversity seem like the norm. I want to be able to create projects that command attention by being multicultural projects, not just Black projects. I think when you do that, you are almost doing something for the first time at this point. I always say this, if you make a project and you make an all white cast, you’re up against the greatest cinematography of all time because it’s been done so well for so long. It’s very hard for it to be significant. When you start to offer different cultures, different people’s journeys, we can tap into something that hasn’t been done, and it could be amazing. It could be a step forward.”
This is so important and vital to the future of storytelling. Kudos to 50 for doing it and doing it well.
On why money is important to him:
“I like to do what I want to do, when I want to do it. That’s why money’s important to me. Money is important to me so if you tell me no, I can greenlight my own idea. That’s it. Like in the tour. When they get comfortable telling me no, I say ‘Why are you telling me that? [What] the f*ck’s wrong with you? Tell me how much it costs, don’t tell me No.’ And then I’ll figure out if I’ll pay for it, but I’m only asking you for it cause I’ve seen somebody else with it…. Stop playing. Just get what I asked for please. Tell me it’s a hazard or something, or the venue don’t allow you to do it. But other than that, don’t tell me No. Tell me what I gotta do to get it. At the final lap, you wanna tell me my final tour I can’t do what I wanna do? Get the f*ck outta here.”
This makes a lot of sense — that 50 would want more dollars and cents LOL. Sorry we couldn’t resist!
