Lucious Lyon is a prominent musical producer who finds out that his illness is fatal and all he has is three years. He realizes that he has to determine who can replace him in the role of the head of the hip hop empire. Lucious has three sons: Hakeem who is hard to control, stubborn Jamal – both are artists – and Andre, a successful businessman. How is Lucious supposed to choose the right candidate? Each of the sons deserves to be the leader of the Lyon empire but preferring one candidate over the others is not what he wants to do. The choice is unclear. So, how is Lucious going to make this decision?
