Lucious and Cookie Lyon would be so proud of their boys… If they were their sons in real life. 

Looks like light-skinned men may be back in this year honey… The Lyon boys are giving me all kind of life on the cover of Essence magazine for their current issue.

Empire” stars Trai Byers, Jussie Smollett and Bryshere Gray all graced the cover of Essence magazine for their June 2015 issue. Each of the stars are featured on one cover together and then they all have their own cover.

Inside the issue, they dish on getting their big break with the hit Fox show “Empire”.

Jussie Smollet: “I jumped on Instagram and direct-messaged Lee and said, ‘Sir, I know you get this all the time, but I’m a singer, actor, dancer, songwriter and musician. I am Jamal Lyon in more ways than one.'”

Bryshere Gray:  “I would hear things like, ‘My dad was never in my life…’ and my response was, ‘My dad was never in my life…Don’t feel like you don’t matter.'”

Trai Byers:  “I work out for two reasons: one, because I’m an actor and two, because I’m somebody’s [future] husband. I want to be prepared for the woman God has for me.”
