We really love Empire, and there's no way you can do Empire without Birthday Boy Terrence Howard.
In honor of his birthday, here's our favorite performances from Lucius Lyon, whether it be him laying down the law, or laying down a track:
After Lucius goes to jail, he lays down one of the sickest revenge tracks with Petey Pablo. Because, why not?
Nothing To Lose
Jamal and Lucius lay it down in a very slick jam session, that shows their talent and how it can be manipulated.
Cookie & Lucius
The relationship with Lucius and Cookie is one one that can't be broken, even when they betray each other.
Chris Rock Gets Murdered
Because you can't play a game with a game player.
Hakeem Disses Lucius, Lucius Punches Him In The Face
And finally, nobody can disrespect him without getting burned. Not even his sons.
Happy Birthday Terrence Howard!
