Xzibit To Guest Star On “Empire”

Xzibit is set to join the laundry list of celebrities to guest star on Fox’s hit drama, “Empire.”

Here’s the scoop on his role via Deadline:

Xzibit will play Leslie “Shyne” Johnson, who is 100% wolf and 100% gangster. He has managed artists, started record imprints and even sold a few units here and there, but his bread and butter always has been — much to his years-long frustration — drugs, guns and extortion. Feeling shut out by the other heavy hitters in the music industry, he carries a big chip on his shoulder, especially for Lucious (Terrence Howard). The exact number of episodes is TBD.

Xzibit is talented and I’m sure he’ll do a great job.

Empire” returns on March 30.
