Teyana Taylor (and her baaaawdy) got it popping in these streets!
The recording artist, actress, and star of Kanye West‘s “Fade” music video has landed a recurring role on VH1’s scripted drama series, “The Breaks.”
She will also appear on the network’s forthcoming Ice Cube-produced game show, “Hip Hop Squares.”
Inspired by The Big Payback, a narrative history of the hip-hop business written by journalist Dan Charnas, The Breaks is executive produced by Seith Mann (The Wire) and John J. Strauss (Mozart in the Jungle). The series, a follow to VH1’s original film which aired earlier this year, will continue to follow three young friends as they fulfill their hip hop dreams in New York City in 1990.
Taylor joins a cast that includes Afton Willamson, Wood Harris, Mack Wilds, Antoine Harris, David Call, Evan Handler, Melonie Diaz, Sinqua Walls and Ali Ahn.
Taylor also will be doing a stint on VH1’s upcoming Hip Hop Squares. Her credits include Brotherly Love, Madea’s Big Happy Family and MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew: All Stars.
You go girl!
