Yesterday, the New York Times reported “Empire,” Fox’s first-year hip-hop drama, brought in a season-high 16.7 million viewers for Wednesday’s finale, according to Nielsen data provided by the network. That caps off an improbable run of 10 consecutive weeks of viewership growth.

Truth be told, a fan … I’m not.

I did however watch the ‘Empire’ Finale.

I too was briefly seduced into stepping into the Lyons Den.

I too was seduced by the fox promoted fantasy.

But, when fantasy meets reality the truth is sometimes present.

In the final episode of Empire, LL was in a position to publicise an IPO …

because he had more than a dream …

he had more than an everyday hustle …

he was more than a boss.

In the final episode of Empire, LL was in a position to publicise an Initial Public Offering of his brand, his vision, his Empire … because he created, owned and maintained his own company.

This is the basics y’all.

One cannot offer a company to the public if one does not own a company.

An Initial Public Offering is based on the ownership.

That brings us back to Peter … and Jesus.

Do you own your own ship.

Does this vessel belong to you.
