Are you ready?! The second season of FOX’s hit show Empire is back on our TV screens, tonight and we have some drip dropping exclusives for you.

 

The TV show picks up three months after Terrence Howard‘s character Mr Lucious Lyon was locked up, with his family opening up with a concert, in the name of #FreeLucious. In this scene Hip-Hop producer Swizz Beats emcees a speech on #BlacklivesMatter, he mentions how approximately 1.68 million black men are incarcerated.

 

The fans want luscious free, this Empire‘s creative way of showcasing #BlacklivesMatter, similar to what Scandal had done in their previous season.

 

Let’s talk about the fashion, we all know how Taraji P Henson‘s character Cookie Lyon likes to look hot and sexy… In this second season we will see an upgraded version of Ms Lyon, the first outfit we see is Cookie wearing is a peacock feathered, vibrant stylish Gucci attire.

Let’s talk about the drama, so we are looking forward to a scene where Cookie walks through Empire Records HQ and browses her phone to see what’s happening on Instagram! We all know how 50 cent has criticised Empire for copying his show Power, well let’s spill the tea… Well in this scene Cookie says: “50 cent is still taking jabs at us.Look at what he put on the ‘gram, Thirsty ass.Shame!

Empire would not be Empire if Boo Boo Kitty Anika & Cookie did not have argument. This season we will see Cookie put her right in her place. Miss Boo boo Kitty says: “I get it, I get it. You are the baddest bitch ever. You are badder than all the animals whose prints populate your wardrobe.Oh, OK, girl… We feel you.

 

Let’s talk about the guest appearance from Nene Leakes‘ good lady boy friend Miss Lawerence. Yes that’s right stylist, he will be singing on this season… Yup?! We didn’t know he can sing either! Do you guys remember Tyra Ferrell, mother Doughboy played by Ice Cube and Ricky’s played by Morris Chestnut mother in the movie Boyz ‘N The hood? Well, she will make some type of fun cameo this season. Rapper Ludacris will make an appearance as a correctional officer but will not be loved by fans as his role as Officer Mcknight is to make Lucious’ life a living hell in his cell block. Child of Destiny Kelly Rowland takes a break from motherhood to play Lucious Lyon’s mother in his flashback where his past is revealed and we get to see the reason why he is the way he is. We get to see where he inherited his talent from, as his mother sings him lullabies in the heart felt scene.

 

We don’t want to spoil too much… But who do you think will take over the throne?
