The Business: Empire's Newest CastMember Bre-Z Speaks On Thriving As A Female MC In The Industry--& How Terrence & Taraji Keep Her Groundedtomorrow night.

Not surprisingly, the internets have been all the buzz with spoilers about what we can expect with season 2, along with who we can expect to see in it. Along with the highly publicized addition of Vivica Fox to Empire as Cookie’s sister, it’s also been reported that we can expect to see Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz, and AliciaKeys in Season 2.

Fox teamed up with Colombia Records to release two new songs for the Season 2 soundtrack which debuted earlier this month:  “No Doubt About it” featuring Jussie Smollet (Jamal Lyon) and Pitbull, and “Ain’t About the Money” by the Lyon Brothers Jussie Smollet (Jamal Lyon) and Yaz (Hakeem Lyon).

Season 2 also introduces us to the new storyline of a gritty female emcee who’s character’s name is “Freda Gatz,” portrayed by none other than Bre-Z, a Philly native (by way of Delaware, Atlanta, and LA) who’s an MC and songwriter in real life with past collaborations under her belt with Dr. Dre, The Game, and JLO.

Okayplayer had a chance to get up with Bre-Z and learn about her big leap into acting, and what its been like working with Terrence, Taraji, and arguably one the most important music shows currently on prime time TV.

OKP: Were you watching Empire before you got involved with it?
