In August 2016, Walker played Boobie in the movie, The Land. Similar to many of the other actors that appear on the series this season, Empire is Walker's first major acting role. Ezri is actually a rapper off the screen. Similar to musician-actor Bryshere Y. Gray, he's working hard to perfect both his crafts.

Ezri opened up for Nas at the 2016 Central Park SummerStage Festival. We're sure Bryshere has been giving him some tips. In 2013, Gray was the opening performance at Jay-Z's Made In America Festival. "Yazz" has also opened up for 2 Chainz and Fabolous.
We love the fact that Walker will be playing a nerd. There are so many smart rappers, including J. Cole who graduated from St. John University, Magna Cum Laude. Back in 2005 Lil Wayne attended the University of Houston, further proving that there's nothing wrong with being an educated rapper.
