With a cast including Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Russell Hornsby, 50 Cent certainly brought the A-list factor on his empowering new series BMF.
This show is already a hit!
Fresh of his success with the Power franchise, Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson premiered his drama series, on STARZ called BMF (Black Mafia Family), which has already been picked up for a second season.
The series follows two Detroit brothers becoming powerful figures in a multi-state drug and money laundering organization.
Acting veteran Russell Hornsby delved into what this series is truly about.
"These kids weren't just 'drug dealers' if you will. They were young boys looking for an opportunity to make a better way for themselves," Hornsby said.
The all-star cast even includes Snoop Dogg and Eminem.
"The truth of the matter is, when you have a Snoop Dog and an Eminem and obviously a 50 Cent, you're talking about individuals that help bring energy to a project."
The series is based on the true story of the Black Mafia Family from Detroit, known for both the drug trade and the music industry. Demetrius "Lil Meech" Flenory Jr. shared the origins of the story.
"It starts back from the origin from when my dad and my uncle first started before they were anything," Meech said.
Randy Huggins also talked about the starring role of his hometown.
"I'm a son of Detroit telling a story about two legends of Detroit, getting to showcase my city, which doesn't happen a lot," Huggins said.
Da'Vinchi expressed his gratitude for being able to participate in this special project.
"It was one of the dopest experiences of my career just to be working with so many veterans," Da'Vinchi said.
Michole Briana White finally shared what she's most excited for people to see.
"I'm mostly excited about people seeing this family and this real authentic family. I really hope that we can honor their true story."
