Ahmir “?Love” Thompson Gets Down With Showtime

Root’s group member Ahmir "?uestlove"

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
