Last night V-103 hosted a private listening session with Bryshere Gray (Hakeem) and Jussie Smollett (Jamal) from the hit show EMPIRE at Suite Lounge, Atlanta’s premier and hottest Upscale Night Lounge/Restaurant.

A huge part of the hip hopera and what helped make the show such a success is the musical offerings in each episode, produced by superproducer Timbaland.  Last night the guys gave us a sneak peek into the hit album Empire and that included “Drip, drop, drip dripptey, drop” and the other smash hit ” Beautiful .”

If you haven’t heard, Jussie Smollett is a budding R&B singer (inking a deal with Columbia Records recently) and Byshere “Yazz the Greatest” Gray is an up-and-coming rapper. So now the question is…will the guys be releasing any solo albums soon? The short answer: No! But, don’t fret. Solo albums are on their agenda, possibly for next year. Right now, though, they’re totally focused on the show. V-103 also gave out Empire CD’s to tons of lucky guests if they answered the Empire trivia questions and of course you know Empire fans were in the building and had no problems answering them !
