The Empire TV show is heating up with everybody in Season 2, Episode 8 battling it out including Lucious Lyon’s new artist Freda Gatz who challenged Hakeem Lyon who’s partnered with his mother Cookie for their new record label Lyon Dynasty.
It was Cookie and Hakeem’s Lyon Dynasty who threw the first blow in a previous episode when they crashed Lucious Lyon’s Empire party where Jamal and Pitbull were performing.
The party was a big deal because it was immediately following Lucious’ release from prison.
In episode 8, following Lucious signing artist Freda when the label CEO began to look deep into his dark past which he shared with her, you can see the ‘monster’ that was created when they go in full battle mode and take aim at Hakeem and Cookie’s Lyon Dynasty.
