Last night's episode of "Empire" debuted a Terrence Howard-Petey Pablo collabo banger called "Snitch Bitch." It was basically Howard's timeless classic "Whoop That Trick" from "Hustle and Flow," only if "Whoop That Trick" were made in jail.

Though the episode got celebrity appearances from Montana of 300, Ludacris, and Kelly Rowland, Petey Pablo's cameo was a curiosity. In a TV interview, Pablo revealed that the reason for his "Empire" appearance -- restitution for a $200 loan he made to Howard, 10 years ago.

Pablo told WRAL-Raleigh that a presumably tipsy Howard lost his wallet at the "Hustle and Flow" premiere party in 2005. The "Freek a Leek" rapper loaned Howard $200 and was summarily paid "with the tune of $15,000" for his "Empire" cameo.

Pablo said he wrote four songs for the season two "Empire" soundtrack, stay tuned for those. In the mean time, bump "Snitch Bitch."
