5. One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure
We’ve seen it time and time again, an artist gets signed to a label only to languish on the shelf in musical purgatory. Eventually he or she gets dropped or released from their contract, and someone else takes note of their talent and hits the jackpot. Remember: No one wanted 50 Cent before Dr. Dre and Eminem scooped him up and struck platinum. In one of the season’s most shocking and accidentally funny (sorry, not sorry) flashback scenes, a furious Lucious placed a young Jamal in a garbage can after his middle son came downstairs wearing Cookie’s heels. Fast-forward a few years and the former black sheep of the family is now the heir to the Lyon throne.
