    ‘Empire’ Season 2: Episode 10

    in Pop Culture

    Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) join forces once again as the volatile pair come together in an attempt to save the Empire. This comes just after Mimi (Marisa Tomei) makes a motion to remove Lucious as CEO of the label.

    The backstabbing move is shocking for Lucious who just recently made a play for Swiftstream, the music-streaming service he’s been working to acquire all season. The move is another step as Lucious tries to become the most dominant figure in the entire music world. However, the mogul’s ego comes crashing back down after Mimi’s motion and, now, even his future within Empire is up in the air.

    Meanwhile, Hakeem’s (Bryshere Y. Gray) love life continues to be a bit of a disaster. He’s still in a relationship with Laura (Jamila Velazquez), unaware that Anika (Grace Gealey) is pregnant with his child and, for good measure, Camilla (Naomi Campbell) is back. That’s a lot for anyone to deal with, let alone a guy who is still dealing with the repercussions of being kidnapped.

    As for Jamal (Jussie Smollett), the final moments of last week’s episode – you remember, he kissed Skye (Alicia Keys) – will continue to have a major impact on him. Jamal’s sexuality has been a major point of the entire show and plenty of viewers were, understandably, confused with last week’s turn.

    See, we promised there would be drama.

    Cookie will supposedly find out the truth about her beau Laz (Adam Rodriguez); however, Laz has now truly fallen for her and is more invested in their relationship than the scam.

    After show‘Empire’ Season 2 Episode 4 Spoilers: ‘Poor Yorick’

    in Pop Culture

    In the fourth installment of "Empire" season two, the Lyons have all been busy trying to outdo each other but as the rivalry between Jamal and Hakeem continues to heat up, a truce is called when the brothers agree to collaborate on a music video that will be shown in the "Poor Yorick" episode. According to International Business Times, Hakeem's new album gets leaked and the siblings decide to set aside their conflict to capitalize on making a duet. The music video's theme borrows from the "Mad Max" movie where the brothers are placed in a fiery setting with a steel cage. Speculations are rife whether Hakeem is just taking a shot at Lucious for taking away 


    Cookie will be preoccupied for much of the fourth episode. She will be meeting with a concert promoter who will get close to her. It could possibly lead to romance but before that could happen, Cookie will be arrested and it will not be a surprise if Ford is the brains behind it. She is desperate to find reason to put Lucious back in jail and for good.

    The Lyon family has reunited after show follow me on FB the spencer show

    in Pop Culture

    Hip-hop artist and CEO of Empire Entertainment, Lucious Lyon, has always ruled unchallenged, but a medical diagnosis predicts he will be incapacitated in three years, which prompts the sharks to circle. Without further damaging his family, he must decide which of his three sons will take over. His favorite, young Hakeem, is a gifted musician but values fame over hard work. Middle son, Jamal, is talented and shy but gay -- embarrassing to Lyon. The oldest, Andre, is business-minded but lacks charisma. The reappearance of Cookie, his ex-wife, complicates things; she says he owes her for taking the fall for the drug-running that financed his early career.

    GAYS IN HIP HOP on Gut Level Talk - Radio

    in Entertainment

    I was watching the news on Wednesday night after Empire. I noticed that the news castors were talking about Lucious Lion's son being an openly gay hip hop star on the show. They went on to say that his character hopefully broke down doors for opnely gay rappers to come out and I guess market themselves as gay rapper/rappers. It seemed like it was really important to them that somebody, anybody come out and own being gay and and rapping at the same time. I just thought it was a little funny that it's such a priority with them. Anyway this week we going to dice this up. Plus we gonna talk about Kim Davis and her marriage license fiasco in Rowan County, Kentucky. Hit up the link or listen call 646 716 7053 and listen live on the phone.
