Performances by Terrence Howard as 'DJay' and Taraji P. Henson as 'Suge' in the 2005 movie "Hustle & Flow" are almost a perfect prelude to their 2015 hit series "Empire" and their characters 'Lucious Lyon' and 'Cookie Lyon' and the background story of their early years before Cookie's 17 year prison term where she takes the blame for Lucious.

Seriously, drugs, hoods, criminals, murderers, psychologically sick people who just happen to be 'black'--this is precisely how Fox TV would have America and the world view the African American people, to perpetuate the stereotype they are so anxious to create. My family and friends will not support this garbage---Is it so impossible to present a positive image like the Cosby Show--why couldn't these talented actors be in a show with a positive image? Maybe there actually is a conspiracy to bring down Bill Cosby (a positive image) after all, I'm about to be convinced...okay after he's down, what are they going to make up about Denzel? I mean really, this is the only thing 'they' can project to the world (our kids) about us...this is so old and tired, these producers should be fired for extreme lack of creativity---this crap was shown 50 years ago...dump it!!! It provides absolutely NO value, only to the lowest denominator in the hood community!!! DON'T WATCH!!!
