Scott Mescudi is bringing his talents to “Empire.”
The rapper-actor, better known as Kid Cudi, will guest star on Fox’s hit series this fall, according to EW.
Cudi will play Gram, an independent rapper who is a rival to Hakeem (Bryshere “Yazz” Gray) in the studio and in life. Gram is also dating Hakeem’s ex, Tiana (Serayah McNeill).
Cudi’s previous acting credits include Entourage and James White.
French Montana and Birdman are also set to guest star on the third season of “Empire,” which premieres Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
When he’s not flexing his acting cops, Cudi is focused on music. He is gearing up to release his new album Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ later this year.
