Empire is producing hits with its newly released soundtrack, historical ratings, and now real-life music artists! Jussie Smollett, who plays singer Jamal Lyon on the hit show, was the first cast member to receive a major label recording deal with Columbia Records, now the younger Lyon, played by Bryshere Gray, has snagged a major label deal of his own, according to BallertAlert.com!
The Philly native, who goes by Yazz the Greatest, recently sat down with his on-screen brothers during a promotional interview, where he stated that he was now signed to a major label but didn’t say with whom, he also stated that he was working on his debut album with hitmaker Timbaland and Snopp Dogg.Seems like the ‘Empire’ is great on AND off the screen! Congrats to Yazz, I can’t wait to see how his music in real-life will differ from the music on the show!
