‘Empire’ Stars Takeover ‘ESSENCE’…With Four Covers

Published: Tuesday 12th May 2015 by Sam

Jussie Smollett, Bryshere Gray, and Trai Byers.

Three relatively unknown names…that is until ‘Empire’ exploded into a TV phenomenon earlier this year.

The handsome actors star as the Lyon brothers on the FOX smash, which returns to screens for a second season this Fall.

Continuing the promotion for the show (which – with its charting music component – makes it a legit a 360 machine), the talented young men cover the June 2015 issue of ESSENCE magazine.

As well as posing together, Smollett, Gray, and Byers each feature on their own solo editions too.

Check ’em out above and below…

    Let me just be naughty for a sec.
    I’d let Bryshere hammer me for behind whilst giving Trai the BEST head I can give and Juasie can watch.
    I’d love to run my tongue up and down Trai. I’m sure he tastes delicious
