The Clipse's Pusha T has personally confirmed this week's reports claiming he will be featured on a few episodes of the upcoming "How To Make It In America" HBO series.
Keeping fans afloat, Pusha described his trip out to New York City for filming.
"Good morning...Destination: NYC...Mission: "How to Make it in America" Stay Tuned!," he tweeted Friday (May 27).
"@mWattsmusic on set, they call me Denzel Chestnut Epps...I'm a natural. I'm rocking an ascot and smoking cigars all summer long!"
"@mWattsmusic I'm back tomorrow, what we doing this weekend? I need to run the streets..." (Pusha T's Twitter)
Details of Pusha's involvement on the HBO series landed online yesterday (May 26).
On the upcoming season of "How To Make It America" Pusha T will star alongside Bryan Greenberg and Kid Cudi for four episodes. He'll portray a drug dealer who slangs that good green, not the white girl we're used to hearing about (word to the "Blow" video). (Complex)
The series is expected to kick off season two, beginning this summer.
HBO's How To Make It In America cast member Bryan Greenberg (Ben Epstein) recently revealed that the cast is already doing reads for the first few episodes, then will officially begin filming in Spring 2011, and then the new season will premier in Summer 2011. The first season was great and I'm glad to see what's in store for our television sets in Season 2 (Weall Scheme)
In addition to acting, Pusha expects to drop his G.O.O.D. Music debut album in the fall.
"We're gonna put out the album on Black Friday, you know what I'm saying," Pusha said in an interview. "Still more music coming, man. You know what I'm saying? We're out here [in Las Vegas] shooting the 'Alone In Vegas' [music] video right now. Long Live The Cane project coming soon as well. Big shout-out to Re-Up Gang, Malice, you know." (DJ Franzen TV)
"How To Make It In America" is slated to start back up in the summer.
