Thompson is making his first foray onto the small screen and has signed on to
be Music Supervisor for "Street Time," an original series on Showtime.
"As a big fan of Street Time, it’s a thrill
to be able to bring my talent to the show," Thompson. "This is the
perfect situation for me to get involved in television. What the producers want
is to authenticate the sound to reflect a real street feeling and that’s what
we plan to do. Street Time will sound like no other show."
Black Thought will make an appearance in episode
three in the upcoming season of "Street Time."
The rapper, who is making his television acting
debut, will star as a parolee struggling with the strict terms of his probation.
The series premieres Wednesday, August 6 at 10:00
