In the Empire episode ‘Civil Hands Unclean’, while Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) questions her marriage proposal decision with Angelo (Taye Diggs) — she said no — she also has to deal with her ex Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Giuliana (Nia Long). Cookie is suspicious of their plans for Empire in Vegas. A visit from rapper Snoop Dogg (who plays himself) doesn’t reassure Cookie. With Snoop Dogg is his real life new artist October London.
October London (who used to go by Sam London) is from South Bend, Indiana. He signed with Snoop and producer Jazze Pha in 2016. He’s known for his single “Black Man in America” (listen below). ThisIsRnB describes it as “a bluesy number that will call to mind Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye.” That’s some pretty elite company for October. Empire airs Wednesdays at 9pm on FOX.
