The episode will not be making its way to air.
Although Jussie Smollett may have a few people on his side amid the allegations against him that he staged a racist attack, but the actor just can't seem to outrun evidence proving his guilt for what he's being accused of. Jussie previously taped an episode for television series Drop The Mic and according to the show's head writer the episode has been shelved.

“We had an episode of Drop The Mic this season with Jussie that you’ll now (correctly) never see,” executive producer Jensen Karp wrote on Twitter. “But sadly it will shelve @clayaiken, WHO WAS A VERY GOOD RAPPER (at least for now).”
Jussie was battling Orange Is The New Black actress Danielle Brooks, and according to The Blast, the actor dropped a line referring to "bail."
“How long is your character gonna be in jail? If it gets you off the show, then I will pay your bail," he spat at Danielle. The lyric is just too much of a coincidence considering all that's happened with Jussie in the last few weeks.
The two brothers who were paid by Jussie to attack him issued an apology for their involvement. "My clients have tremendous regret over their involvement in this situation, and they understand how it has impacted people across the nation, particularly minority communities and especially those who have been victims of hate crimes themselves," their attorney Gloria Schmidt stated.
