  1. Listen I wasn’t a big fan of the idea to form with the masses and jump on the empire bandwagon but one say I got bored and was scrolling through [hulu] and decided to give it a chance. Ever so ‘s the first episode I was hooked. I’m an artist and I’m not really one of those people who makes music for status I make it because I like to hear my voice and feelings expressed, away from my body. I can get really comfortable in a role of empire especially within the empire family only because behind all the money and power their family is a parallel of my own family issues and comebacks. I would live a chance to artiscally express my music as well as hit home for slit of ppl the values of family and that no matter what we go through family is still family. I relate to jamals’s character, hakeem’s lucious, cookie and andre, also the relationships they individually portray mirror those of my relationships
    Andre and Rhonda
    I’m up and down and my girl has always wanted what’s best for me with all my issues included,
    Cookie and luscious
    Struggling currently at the bottom and having a dream that we will wonder make a stake in this world
    And the family as a whole
    Hakeem felt like the black sheep after Jamal gained empire and aggressively expressed his anger when no one was able to convince him other wise and Jamaal and the way he does his music reminds me of what I lost while trying to compete with the added pressure from the mainstream’s “sound by popular demand”. Anyways, all my closest friends think I have a real chance at becoming one of the next Empire artists and now I’m starting to believe them you’re indirectly reviving hip hip and I want to be apart of that now.
    The name is Dante and I go by
    Tomy Kyng.
    Thank you.

  2. You should cast CHRIS WILLIAMS,( Vanessa’s brother), as Lucious Lyon’s brother. However, I am not sure if Terence would be intimidated by another male with blue eyes
