I still hate Hakeem. Him and Naomi? WHET?! Enough about him, how about Jamal and that song he got from Puma. He sang it beautifully, and I lived for the looks between Luscious and Cookie. What a dick Luscious was though, talking about giving that song away and then having the nerve to be like, “Oh, you wanted it?”. Low down, Low DOWN! I hope Puma and Cookie become an item.
Jamal finally said his piece to his pops, but now he is homeless. Why doesn’t he just go live with Cookie? I’m sure she will let both him and Michael live with her. And if that fails, I would move us both in Luscious’ house. Hell, that house is so big they can live there damn near unnoticed!
Glad the feds are on there A game regarding that bald head scallywag Luscious married. She about to get everybody murked in these streets and she don’t E-N-O!
Still waiting patiently for the moment Cookie finds out Bunkee was killed by L! The officer knows, but surely he will be killed soon.
Bipolar Benny and his wife…I can’t
Is it just me, or does it look like Cookie raided the costume departments from EVERY blaxploitation film ever made, to compile her wardrobe?! I thought she went to jail in the 90s. Can someone (Jamal) pleases take her shopping? And only let her buy clothes from the 2000s up until the present? Damn! I love Cookie though, lol.
So I hate Hakeem even more now. As a person. I was hating hard on his raps last week, but this week his rap score has risen, while his personality score plummeted (not that it was too high to begin with). He barely has talent, and he’s hideous. How dare he have the audacity to have a funky attitude too. What?! Man, I was really hoping Tianna wouldn’t succumb to his douchery so early in the game. I thought he was going to clean himself up in order to win her hand. Boy was I buggin. I liked her song in the beginning.
I can’t wait until Lucius gets caught up for Bunky’s murder. I’m on the fence about his character, meaning i’m not sure if I hate him or love him. He is dirty as they come, but I still feel the need to like him. I’m torn. I’m glad he took action against 4-4 though for talking crazy to cookie. What if he decides to bypass all the boys and give the company to Cookie?! Like on his death bed, he’s like, “Cookie, I want you to run the company. You’re the reason Empire even exists.” That would be dope. The bipolar one would flip his shit foreal, foreal though. That would make for a great season finale!
This first episode had my curiosity, the next episode needs to grab my attention. Does anyone else feel like this is a continuation of Hustle and Flow, lol? I think I just feel that way because of Taraji and Terrence. I liked all of the musical numbers and acts except the lame rapping son. He is wiggidy, wiggidy WACK! They are blowing his head up tooooo much!
As far as the dialogue, I cringed a few times. Mostly when Taraji was speaking. Some of those lines are sooo cheeseball. She’s so much better than that.
With that being said, I think this show is going to be pretty good.
