Jadakiss, Cam’ron, and Fivio Foreign are all set to appear in ABC’s upcoming hip-hop series, Queens. The show is starring hip-hop and R&B songstresses Brandy and Eve and is set to premiere on October 19.
The television drama series follows retired female hip-hop group, Nasty Bitches, as they attempt to re-launch their successful music careers in their 40s. The show also stars Naturi Naughton and Nadine Velazquez, joining Brandy and Eve as the hip-hop supergroup.
Cam’ron will make some guest appearances on a couple of episodes in the first season as a rapper featured on one of the group's biggest hits. He is linked to Brandy’s character as an old flame that gets reignited in the present day.
Jadakiss took to Instagram on Tuesday (September 28) to share a photo on set with Brandy with the caption, “@brandy @abcnetwork I appreciate the love on set ‘QUEENS.’
In the show, Brandy stars as Naomi, a.k.a. Xplicit Lyrics. According to her character description, she became a starving artist after a solo album attempt, “After being sure she would hit it big as a solo act, Naomi is reduced to playing music in dive bars. When the group does get back together she comes in contact with her one true love who was swept away by a rival bandmate. She also longs to build a relationship with her daughter.”
Eve plays the role of Brianna, who’s described as a “proud wife and mother of five. 20 years ago, Brianna was Professor Sex — one fourth of the Nasty Bitches — rapping about money, sex, and her all-around glamorous lifestyle. Today, Brianna is a proud wife and mother of five in a stained sweatsuit who barely has a second to breathe.”
