It looks like Wyclef Jean is the latest celebrity to join Law & Order: SVU‘s long list of guest stars. On Wednesday, the three-time Grammy Award-winning artist will make his series debut in an episode called “Bad Rap.”

The 47-year-old Saddle River resident won’t have to dig too deep for character inspiration. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the former Fugees member will play a famed record producer who begins working with a hot new client entangled in a controversial assault case.

The real life rapper and producer recently posted still shots from the episode that got fans really excited about him joining the show. Although little details about his character or the episode have been revealed, it’s bound to be a juicy one!
