Episode 4: Gimme That Bomb Beat From... Hakeem?

Bryshere Gray as Hakeem Lyon and Jussie Smollett as Jamal Lyon in the “Poor Yorick” episode of EMPIRE.

Empire is, at its dramatic heart, a show about hip hop culture. So it's about damn time we talk about the music. We dial up super producer Mark Batson, who crafted that anthemic Season Two opener, and also talk to writer and author Shea Serrano about where Empire's music falls in the hip hop canon (and try to understand why he likes that terrible Lucious single).
