Empire fans can expect to see a lot more of Shyne Johnson in Season 3, as rapper-turned-actor Xzibit will be a series regular.
Fans were introduced to Xzibit’s character, Shyne Johnson, in the back half of Season 2. There are many famous people and artists that have appeared on Empire, so at first we thought that Xzibit’s role would be a brief one. However it’s now been reported that Xzibit will be a series regular in Season 3. Shyne Johnson ain’t going anywhere baby! (Unless Lucious kills him.) Shyne came into the play in the Season 2 finale, when Lucious admits to Cookie that he did a job for gangsters Tommy and Rosie while she was in prison. The only other person who knows about the hit is Shyne, whom Lucious screwed over. With Tariq and the Feds sniffing around, Lucious and Cookie know that they need to cover their bases and get Shyne on their side. This entails giving him an invite to Hakeem’s wedding, but Shyne shows up to the wedding drunk and causes a scene. Now Shyne didn’t strike us as the brightest crayon in the box, but more of Shyne’s identity is set to be revealed in Empire Season 3.

Xzibit is bringing his acting talents to Empire. Mr. X To The Z, born Alvin Joiner, will be appearing on the FOX drama as a rival to Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard).
Deadline reports that:
Xzibit will star as Leslie “Shyne” Johnson aside Terrence Howard’s polarizing character, Lucious. The rapper will embody a music mogul with a close ear to the streets. “Shyne” also has resentment towards Lucious after getting blackballed for his lifestyle. Leslie “Shyne” Johnson is 100% wolf and 100% gangster. He has managed artists, started record imprints and even sold a few units here and there, but his bread and butter always has been — much to his years-long frustration — drugs, guns and extortion. Feeling shut out by the other heavy hitters in the music industry, he carries a big chip on his shoulder, especially for Lucious.

Just days after a standout feature for Koache, Xzibit does it again. The platinum MC gets down with Bishop Lamont, who is a fellow Dr. Dre affiliate of the mid-2000s. “Back Up Off Me” is a single from Lamont’s perceived 2016 debut, The Reformation.
As the title suggests, the record—featuring singer Kaleb Simmonds—is about pushing others for much needed room. X opens things up with a raspy and rowdy verse, talking like he did on his first two solo LPs. Bishop comes in next, showing why he caught the ear of Dre as well as Caltroit in the last decade. This is hard-nosed Hip-Hop that combines B-Boy pride with street-tested bravado.
