Ghost Faces Tough Dilemma In Forthcoming 'Power' Episode

The web of lies to keep Tariq out of the criminal justice system is getting too hectic to control.

The web of lies to keep Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.) out of the criminal justice system is getting hectic to keep control of. For Ghost (Omari Hardwick), Angela (Lela Loren) and Tasha (Naturi Naughton), the outcome of their fate nears with each episode, and now viewers will be able to see what would most likely happen if Ghost confessed to his son's murder of officer Raymond Jones.

The clip centers around the trio inside Angela's apartment where she plays the role of a prosecutor that's interrogating Ghost. The latter can't keep up with the inquiries and is left at a crossroads on what to do next. A major shift in power or the upper-hand is underway, an element that the show's creator Courtney A. Kemp said is key to each episode, specifically when two prominent characters were previously killed in the show.

"There are more difficult characters than others. There are more difficult actors to lose. It was really hard for me to lose Lucy Walters," Kemp said in an interview with VIBE. "I really loved Lucy Walters who played Holly. J.R. Ramirez [who played Julio] was tough in a different way because he’d been in the show from the very beginning. He was a part of the original conception of things. It’s just difficult, that said the show’s not about the characters, the show’s about power. It’s about actual power and the transference of power from person to person. It’s about the powerlessness that we have as humans over things that happen so in a way, even though I’m the one making the decisions in this world, at the end of the day the reason people like the show is because they don’t know what’s going to happen."

Watch the clip above before Power airs Sunday (Aug. 26) at 8 p.m. ET on Starz.

Ty Dolla $ign Releases New Album Feat. Nicki Minaj, Roddy Ricch, Kanye West And More

After a three-year album hiatus, Ty Dolla $ign released his latest studio effort, Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, on Friday (Oct. 23).

The 25-track album features appearances from Nicki Minaj, Kid Cudi, FKA Twigs, Roddy Ricch, Jhené Aiko, Kehlani, 6lack, Young Thug, Music Soulchild, Skrillex, Quavo, Anderson Paak, Post Malone, Kanye West, and more.

Powered by previously released singles, “Ego Death,” Expensive” and By Yourself,” the new album flexes a different music muscle for the Grammy-nominated recording artists who steered clear of  making club records.

“I was intentionally trying to not make club songs [talking about] hoes and *itches and all the sh*t I used to talk about,” Ty told Vulture in a recent interview. “I was trying to, like, talk about my life, and what it is now, and really do something different with it. I got a daughter going to high school this year, and she’s paying attention, and all her friends are paying attention, so I can’t talk as crazy or do the crazy sh*t that I used to do.”

Jay Z Launches His Own Cannabis Brand

Jay Z is venturing into the world of cannabis. The  mogul officially announced the launch of his new cannabis brand, Monogram, on Friday (Oct. 23) marking his first product collaboration since becoming chief brand strategists of the Northern California-based dispensary, Caliva, last year.

“Monogram seeks to redefine what cannabis means to consumers today,” the company said in a press release. As many marijuana storefronts have implemented new rules amid the global pandemic, Monogram is also planing to launch an e-commerce sales option, “In an effort to provide a more tailored customer experience.”

Caliva and Hov opened their first Southern California storefront last year. Besides providing quality products, Hov aims to use his position at Caliva to help the formerly incarcerated (many of whom are not reaping the benefits of marijuana legalization) through advocacy, job training, and employee and workforce development.

According to the company website, Monogram uses “expert growers” to ensure that each marijuana flowers receives the “respect it deserves” in every stage of the growth process. Additionally, Monogram flowers are grown in small batches so that every plant gets “personalized attention.”
