Eminem Shows Up To The "Final Lap Tour"

50 Cent and Eminem have worked together countless times over the years, including during the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2022. As he prepares to focus more on TV and film following the Final Lap Tour, 50 Cent recently confirmed that he has an 8 Mile series about Eminem in the works. “This shit is expected to be just as big as the feature film, just huge. It’ll be huge,” he told Men’s Health, earlier this year. “The interest in it is because the time period that 8 Mile was capturing further back, so as we move it into modern times you’ll see things about how we function now, how technology changed the way people enter the music business.”
