Teasing the three-hour event, the rapper told EW: "There's somebody who's out for the heads of everybody on the team, and this is a challenge that just one particular squad or one team of NCIS wouldn't be able to handle.

"It's a larger threat than we normally have to deal with, and geographically this threat spans multiple regions, so it takes the trifecta, it takes all three of us coming together to deal with it. And there's a really important NCIS member who's missing as well, so it gets crazy."
