All tis chocolatey goodness in one picture! We can’t contain it! The famous (or infamous?) Lyon brothers were featured in the latest edition of GQ and we must say…we love it! Season 2 of Empire pops off this month by the way. Here is a precept from the GQ editorial and a little something to refresh your memory on who the Lyon Brothers are:
BRYSHERE “YAZZ” GRAY
WHO HE PLAYS: Hakeem Lyon, the youngest brother. Skirt-chasing hip-hop scamp.
SIGNATURE LYRIC: She make that thang go / Drip drop, drip drippity drop.
ON HIS HIT SONG: “It was a TV club-banger that ended up entering the real club. People were like, You’re doing TV music, and it’s not going to be in the club. How about ‘Drip Drop’! I didn’t curse once. If you put your mind to it, you ain’t gotta curse.”
WHO HE PLAYS: Andre Lyon, the eldest brother. CFO of Empire Entertainment.
SIGNATURE LYRIC: “Those auditors, those damn auditors, they can’t know it’s from a cash account,” said rhythmically in a meeting.
ON THE COMPARISONS TO SHAKESPEARE: “Every story is basically Shakespeare to me. From a man driving a truck to a woman walking into an office: Everything is Shakespeare.”
WHO HE PLAYS: Jamal Lyon, the middle-est brother. Gay; confessional R&B crooner.
SIGNATURE LYRIC: Can’t ask you for a handout, it’s time to be a man now / I don’t need it, you can keep your money.
ON JAMAL’S DRIVE: “That’s our job, to be our own worst critic. I’d rather be my own worst critic than have it be someone else.”
