Episode 2, season 2 of Empire turns things up a notch as the Lyon’s do whatever takes to save Empire from the clutches of Camilla (Naomi Campbell). Hakeem is on a mission to prove that he is fully capable of running Empire, and is dead serious about the job after he reveals the new logo.

He sends the tape to Mimi which features Camilla having sex with Hakeem and saying some pretty awful things about her by her wife Mimi. Camilla kills her wife Mimi with a poisonous cocktail in an attempt to make it look like a suicide and cash out.In comes Lucious who is very well prepared wearing gloves and his shoes covered so he doesn’t leave a trace of evidence. He convinces Camilla to consume the same poison cocktail she gave to her wife killing herself as well.
Jamal is having his own issues, his gay fans are turning against him because of Lucious letting the world know he hooked up with Skye (Alicia Keys). Think Lucious still has this moment in the back of this mind:
In the hilarious scene Jamal is approached by a fan with a pair of flip-flops he asks Jamal to sign. Jamal has no clue that he is being set up, a bunch of gay men surround him with flip-flops and they sing a rendition of Hakeem’s hit record “Drip Drop” instead it’s called “Flip Flop”.
Jamal is not too happy about it and decides to get his revenge on his father. He drops a scathing record and reveals his father’s name is not even Lucious.
