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.
Time and time again, we’ve seen the classic adage, “Black don’t crack,” get put to the test. Needless to say that the aforementioned compliment applies to actress Taraji P. Henson, who appears in a Vogue Italia pictorial shoot.
