Bryshere Y. Gray, aka rapper Yazz the Greatest, stars in "Empire" on FOX as Hakeem Lyon, Lucious Lyon's (Terrence Howard) youngest son, and by far his favorite. Hakeem has the swagger of a rising superstar and just might be the front-runner to head Empire Entertainment. The role marks Gray's television debut.

Prior to "Empire," Bryshere Y. Gray played high school football and worked at a Pizza Hut. His role on the show has led him to land a record deal with Columbia Records.

Gray has performed at Jay Z's 2013 Made in America Festival, Sunoco's Welcome America 4th of July Celebration, the annual Roots Picnic Festival, Philadelphia's signature annual Odunde Celebration and Power 99's 2013 Powerhouse concert. He has also opened for rappers Fabolous and 2 Chainz. Gray performed at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards and Teen Choice 2015, and was nominated, along with his "Empire" cast members, for a Teen Choice 2015 Award in the category of "Choice TV: Chemistry."

For his role on "Empire," Gray was nominated for two individual 2016 NAACP Image Awards: Outstanding New Artist and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. He recently was nominated for a Teen Choice 2016 Award in the category of Choice R&B/Hip Hop Song for "Chasing the Sky."

In 2017, Gray can be seen in the cable miniseries "New Edition," as Michael Bivins, one of the founders of the seminal boy band.

Gray resides in his hometown of Philadelphia.
