The producer worked with the Stan hitmaker on his semi-autobiographical movie 8 Mile in 2002 and he is so desperate to secure the star for a guest appearance, he is willing to beg.

But Eminem isn't the only celebrity Grazer wants to work with on Empire.

He tells U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America, "Eminem, I know, loves our show. I produced 8 Mile. I'm going to beg him to get on our show. He and Oprah Winfrey. Somehow I'm going to get one or both of them on our show."

Winfrey already has a close working relationship with Empire's executive producer Lee Daniels - the pair worked together on 2013's The Butler.

The first season of Empire, which stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, featured guest spots from a slew of celebrities, including Courtney Love, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson and Snoop Dogg.
