The STARZ network announced a “special guest” is coming to the 50 Cent-produced drama Power via Twitter over the weekend. It turns out that special guest is Kendrick Lamar, who is making his acting debut.
According to Deadline, the episode — titled “Happy Birthday” — is scheduled to air on Sunday (July 29), but details surrounding K. Dot’s role are scarce.
“Kendrick is a once in a generation talent and Courtney, 50 and I felt it would be exciting to create a role for him in Power,” executive producer Mark Canton told Deadline. “Everyone involved is thrilled to have him join the family.”
