Earlier this month, Gray linked up with hip-hop stars Meek Mill and Future.

Last month, Gray talked about how he approached music-writing.

His role on the show spawned a record deal with Columbia Records. “When I write music for Yazz, it’s my personal experiences and what’s going on in my life,” Gray, who performs musically under the name “Yazz the Greatest,” explains. “And when I write for the character, it’s all trendy, fun and playful.” (WWD)

The 21-year-old actor recently dished on working with “Empire” music executive Timbaland.

The showrunners have upped the music cred for the second season, bringing in Ne-Yo to work with Jussie Smollett (who plays middle son Jamal Lyon) and Timbaland (the show’s executive music producer) to write with Gray. “It’s amazing working with Timbaland; he’s a phenomenal producer,” Gray says. “He does what he does, he makes magic. He comes into the studio, that mad perfector that he is, and I’m just in the booth, writing lyrics for the cub Lyon. He gives me that special ingredient.” (WWD)
