Meets The Press
Bre-Z is a recording artist and actress best known for her role as ‘Freda Gatz’ on FOX’s top-rated television series “Empire,” created by award-winning film director Lee Daniels. After the immense popularity of her character and storyline on the show, along with her riveting rap ballads and musical performances, Bre-Z was upped to a series regular. She can be seen starring as ‘Peanut Bell’ in BET’s “The New Edition Story,” the network’s highest-rated and most-watched telecasts in five years. In 2017 she made her first feature film debut in the comedy "Fat Camp", starring as ‘Winnie,’ opposite Vivica A. Fox.
Hailing from Philadelphia, Bre-Z began her music career at the tender age of 14, doing impromptu performances around her neighborhood that got the attention of Freeway of Roc-A-Fella’s State Property. Freeway got Bre-Z into the recording studio where the pint-sized rapper was able to hone her craft and begin to compose her own songs, find her musical voice and cultivate her unique, androgynous style. Bre-Z has an impressive network, having collaborated musically with top artists such as Dr. Dre, The Game, Freeway, and many more, in addition to writing for Nigerian rapper, Wiz Kid, and pop sensation, Jennifer Lopez, to name a few.
