Rapper and actor (“ractor”) Xzibit, whose real name is Alvin Joiner, which is so nerdy it’s kind of cool and he should consider going back to it, will guest-star on season two of Empire. According to Billboard, Xzibit will portray Leslie “Shyne” Johnson, a music-industry player holding a grudge against Terrence Howard’s character; he is described as “100 percent wolf and 100 percent gangster.” Whoa, that’s 200 percent! Almost no one is that much human. Shyne has “managed artists, started record imprints and even sold a few units here and there, but his bread and butter has always been — much to his frustration — drugs, guns and extortion.” Yeah, that checks out as 200 percent wolf gangster.
