G.O.O.D Music / Def Jam‘s Teyana Taylor just nabbed two new television roles. The talented Harlem-native has joined VH1’s Hip-Hop drama series The Breaks in a recurring role and the cable network’s game show Hip Hop Squares.

Inspired by Dan Charnas‘ bestselling book, The Big Payback: The History of the Business of Hip-Hop, the series, a follow to VH1’s original film which aired earlier this year, will continue to follow three young friends as they fulfill their hip hop dreams in New York City in 1990. Taylor joins a cast that includes Afton Willamson, Wood Harris, Mack Wilds, Antoine Harris, David Call, Evan Handler, Melonie Diaz, Sinqua Walls and Ali Ahn.

Taylor will recur as a rapper discovered by Nikki (Afton Williamson) who is one of the first artists signed to the label that Barry Fouray (Wood Harris) is launching.

The Breaks is executive produced by Seith Mann (The Wire) and John J. Strauss (Mozart in the Jungle). The series is set to air in 2017.

In addition, Taylor will also appear on VH1’s upcoming Hip Hop Squares. Based on the long-running game show Hollywood Squares, the update hails from Ice Cube and features celebrity contestants testing their wits and pop culture knowledge with the superstar squares, featuring the famous faces from Hip-Hop, comedy and entertainment.

Her other acting credits include Stomp the Yard 2, Brotherly Love, Madea’s Big Happy Family and MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew: All Stars.

She is repped by ICM.
