Rap Royalty Kendrick Lamar Is Dropping By Power

But who will he play?

Keisha Hatchett

Power is bringing in a special guest this week: Kendrick Lamar. TV Guide has learned that the Pulitzer Prize-winning rapper is dropping by Courtney Kemp's gritty crime drama this week in a role that hasn't yet been revealed. What we do know is that he'll share the screen with fellow rapper and longtime friend 50 Cent.

Sunday's heated episode, which is titled "Happy Birthday" and is slated to air at 8/7c on Starz, will see Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.) celebrate his first birthday since his sister Raina's (Donshea Hopkins) murder, which probably won't be a happy affair. The event will send Tasha (Naturi Naughton), who still trying to cope with her daughter's death, straight into the arms of her lawyer boo Terry (Brandon Victor Dixon). Elsewhere, Kanan and Tariq will continue to bond over their shared distrust of Ghost (Omari Hardwick) and Ghost will go off the deep end after finding out Dre (Rotimi Akinosho) is planning to ice him out of his own legitimate business.

Although it's currently unknown where exactly Lamar fits into the equation, it looks like he's the special guest and "unlikely friend" teased in this preview released on Power's official Twitter account earlier this week.

Catch Lamar in action when Power airs Sunday, July 29 at 8/7c on Starz.
