Fox recently released the teaser for it's newest TV drama, Empire. Empire stars Taraji P. Henson as Cookie Lyon, the ex-wife of Lucious Lyon (played by Terrence Howard), who heads the hip-hop record label at the center of the series. The inner workings of the hip hop industry is often more enticing than the music itself, so I hope that this show does it some justice. Based off of real-life hip hop empires built by the likes of Dr. Dre and Jay-Z, we will see how record labels in the hip hop world are about so much more than just music. Empire premieres in January 2015 on Fox.
This is reaaaaally interesting. I'm not the hugest Terrence Howard fan, but I'll totally give it a watch eventually.
This sounds so interesting @caricakes! I really know nothing bout hip hop music or culture, so this may be a fun way to learn a bit. Hip hop and rap have been such an integral part of American culture I hope this will make it accessible for people like me who don't now very much.
