Next spring, the world of Hip-Hop and all its neighboring underworlds is set to be dramatized with great magnitude with FOX’s new series, Empire, directed by Lee Daniels and produced by Danny Strong.

The network recently ordered to be a picked up for a full series after seeing its potential to become a primetime hit. Via early reports, Terrence Howard stars as the show’s main character who oversees his music empire (hence the name of the series) and all the troubles and triumphs that come with it.

Fox rolled out the Empire trailer less than 24 hours ago and it immediaely opened our eyes to drama that will be ensuing within the thick plotlines. Glamor and glitz in the music industry is a given but when you splice in family fueding and aged secrets, then the saga begins to spiral out of contr0l.

Here are nine individual things we learned about the Empire trailer, featuring music by Timbaland. It should be interesting to say the absolute least.
