Who Plays Zeah On Empire? Ezri Walker

Ezri Walker plays Zeah on Empire.  The actor is featured in episode 2 of the show’s third season, “Sin That Amends.” Zeah is a 16-year-old nerd who is a great rapper.  Similar to Angelo Dubois (Taye Diggs), he is one of the show’s smartest characters.  Andre isn’t the only one with brain power.  The young emcee isn’t sure whether he should pursue his career as a rapper or focus on college.

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.
