Throughout his career, Eminem has always spoken highly of Tupac Shakur, and everything he has meant to him as an artist and more in life. Now, thanks to some crafty work from a Reddit thread, a heartfelt, hand-written letter and illustration from Eminem to Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, has surfaced, where Em thanks her for everything she has done for him during his career and how much 'Pac inspired him in life. We confirmed with Shady Records that the letter is 100 percent real.
Eminem is making the transition from music to film & television seamless. This past year Em has executive produced Southpaw, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whittaker & 50 Cent, hitting theaters July 24. And now it’s been announced he’s currently shopping a television series, where he’s executive producing and handling the music soundtrack, titled Narc being filmed in Em’s hometown of Detroit. This TV series will be centered around the 2002 movie by the same title. Joe Carnahan supposedly is also executive producing, writing a pilot script, and directing the series, which makes sense since he was the director of the original movie.
