Terrence Howard Offered Petey Pablo Empire Role After $200 Loan

Then, the actor asked Pablo to be on the show.


Howard encountered the “Freek-A-Leek” rapper at the 2005 premiere of “Hustle & Flow“, but apparently lost his wallet before the event, according to Raleigh’s WRAL.

On this week’s episode of Empire, Pablo played Clyde, backing up Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) in his #FreeLucious concert.

The rapper later revealed that it wasn’t until recently that he heard back from Howard. Pablo loaned Howard the $200, and Howard just hadn’t gotten around to paying Pablo back until ten years later.

He also wanted a few help, musically on “Empire.”

Apart from reconnecting with Howard to collect his money, Pablo said that he wrote four song’s for Empire’s season two soundtrack, including the aforementioned “Snitch Bitch”.

“I’m up here with Terrence Howard [on the show]!” he said of being nervous on set. I’m with all these people. Pablo also playfully quipped that he hopes to have a few more scenes to shoot for Empire.


“I been talking to Terrence, and I’m like, ‘I’m hoping I don’t die, ‘” he laughed. This season has welcomed appearances from producer Swizz Beatz, CNN news anchor Don Lemon, and Vogue editor Andre Leon Talley.
