Quincy Combs Banned from Empire?
And no, it’s not because Diddy didn’t want his son to be adversely influenced to rock a Lucious Lyon pompadour.

Straight from the source:
Stars on the show are subject to music contracts similar to those on other shows like “Glee” or “American Idol,” which propel their players into superstardom. “Empire” features a score curated by hit-maker Timbaland and includes original songs that are sold on iTunes and Spotify.

Welp, the outlet is still suggesting Combs could join the cast. All we ask is that he not be made to do a duet with … That boy needs to work on his Auto Tune-assisted aresenal.
