Many do not know the name Yazz the Greatest, but the name Hakeem Lyon, along with the hit show Empire, has taken the nation by storm. Before embodying Hakeem, Bryshere Gray was an MC from West Philadelphia who went by the name Yazz the Greatest.

Yazz recently visited the Sway in the Morning show with co-star Jussie Smollet (Jamal Lyon) and, as Sway does with ALL MCs, he put Yazz to the test by having him rhyme. Yazz took on three classic beats and showed that he is a legitimate double threat. Check out the video.
