You definitely can’t keep Wyclef Jean down. This week the Fugees’ frontman celebrated his 43rd birthday atop his motorcycle, looking crazy fit and now we know why.

Jean tweeted from the set of the ABC drama Nashville this week saying that he was working out for his new role and later posted a picture of himself with the cast.

The series revolves around the country music industry and stars Connie Britton as Rayna Jaymes, an aging country music superstar and Juliette Barnes, a much younger country sensation played by Hayden Panettiere (which could be or not be a character based on Taylor Swift.)

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that the rapper will have a recurring role as a record label executive.

Way to go, dude!
