Lucious' real name is Dwight and there is something significant about it unfolding in every episode of the show.  Every time she calls Lucious "Dwight", he corrects her yet she continues to make the mistake.

In the show's first season, Lucious came clean about his real name, "Dwight Walker".  When his mother is around he refused to accept the name.

Walker is responsible for the song "Chasing The Sky" which has been called the Lyon family anthem.  When Lucious introduces the track to his family he explains that he wants honesty.  

Hakeem couldn't wait to share his feelings on the verse and Jamal provided his beautiful vocals.  For those who had any doubts about Terrence Howard's voice, need he say more?


Although he is not featured on the song, Andre Lyon sums up how special the track is when he introduces it.  Cookie and Lucious' oldest son explains that family may not be perfect but it's all we got.

Another Wednesday, another great episode of the show! Mashable reports that the hip-hop series is affecting the TV business in more ways than we realize.  The show has been highlighting diversity behind-the-scenes.
