Foxy Brown lining up for Empire cameo

Rapper Foxy Brown is working with director Lee Daniels in the hopes of landing a guest role on his new hip-hop drama Empire.

The Oh Yeah hitmaker has not flexed her acting muscles since making her screen debut in 1998, when she appeared in Jada Pinkett Smith comedy film Woo, but she is eager to test her skills once more by teaming up with Daniels on his first TV series, which airs on Fox network.


She recently took to Instagram.com to share a screen grab of a text conversation with the filmmaker, in which Daniels wrote, "We fixin (sic) to turn up Fox on FOX".


Responding to the message, Brown texted, "God is awesome...! Can't wait I'm coming wit it (sic)! I love u my Lee Lee".


She captioned the image, "EMPIRE DYNASTY!!!!!!!! THE MASTERMIND HAS OFFICIALLY SPOKEN!"


Empire stars Terrence Howard as a reformed drug dealer who reinvents himself as a music mogul at the top of a hip-hop empire. Taraji P. Henson co-stars as his ex-wife.
