Ever since Shyne (Xzibit) made his “Empire” debut, he has brought new energy to the show. Overall, Shyne has won because he is the only character unafraid of Lucious (Terrence Howard). Not overly angry with him like Tariq (Morocco Omari), Shyne simply plays the game.
Tonight, Tariq looked to take things a step further to stop Lucious by freezing Empire’s funds. The man who helped him complete this mission was Shyne. After all, the plan with Leah (Leslie Uggams) hasn’t completely worked out.
After Shyne conspired with Tariq to freeze Empire’s assets, he went to Lucious and cut a deal with him. Using his connections, Shyne gave Lucious the money he needed to stay in business, but for a percentage of Empire. This, and how he played Shyne, has Twitter going in on him.
