Valee Makes His Acting Debut on ABC’s ‘Splitting Up Together’
It's only been eight months since Chicago rapper Valee signed a deal with Kanye West's G.O.O.D Music, but now he plans to add "experienced actor" to his growing résumé. After getting a taste of the Miami lifestyle with Pusha-T, the VTM rapper recently took his talents to Hollywood to make a cameo on ABC's new comedy series Splitting Up Together., which premieres tonight (Oct. 23) at 9:30 p.m. on the network.
In the brief scene, Valee stars as himself in the episode titled "Asking for a Friend." He sips champagne alongside actor Bobby Lee while actor Oliver Hudson seeks relationship advice. Last night (Oct. 22), Ellen DeGeneres, who serves as the show's executive producer, shared a clip featuring Valee's acting debut on her twitter account. Valee responded with his own tweet thanking DeGeneres. He also thanked Lee and Hudson in a separate post on Instagram. "catch my TV debut 2morrow. Thank U @TheEllenShow ❤️❤️❤️," Valee tweeted.
Before his national television debut, Valee had served up a handful of creative visuals over the summer that prepared him for his new acting role. After starring in a short film with Jeremih for their single "Womp Womp," Valee followed up an outrageous rager for "Juice and Gin," and then sparked up a blunt in the forest for his "Loading" video. Recently, he dropped a brand new banger with one of the youngest rappers in the game, Matt Ox, called "Awesome," which was produced by ChaseTheMoney.
