Why Young M.A Turned Down a Role on 'Empire'

Yes, Young M.A is a must-know name on the hip-hop scene now as "Ooouuu" continues its crossover success, but the latest Fuse First artist tells us that she turned down a major opportunity to appear on Empire because she was focused on establishing herself before playing a character.

Watch above as the Brooklyn MC explains her thought process on the role of "Betty Boss" and what factor almost had her change her mind and sign on for the TV opp.

See the full interview for more on how Swizz Beatz got involved the process, then watch below as our Fuse First artist explains the creation of "Ooouuu." Stay tuned throughout the month to see the "Ooouuu" video and lots more exclusives with our new Fuse First artist Young M.A on Fuse, Fuse.tv and on the new Fuse TV app on Apple and Android.
