In season two of the popular series, Raq (Patina Miller) tries to mend the fractures in the Thomas family. As she continues to expand her empire, Kanan (MeKai Curtis),  who is playing the 50 Cent character in his youth, doubts his future in the drug game.

The new series ventures into dark territory as Kanan learns more about the drug game that his mother Raquel Thomas introduced him to. Raquel now controls every aspect of the product distribution due to Unique getting framed for murdering Officer Howard in the previous season.

Patina says playing Raquel was a role she embraced, “Oh my God, I get this woman. I know this woman.” I know what her inner struggle is. I know what it's like to be the mother and to be the child of a young mom. And I know what it's like to be in a position of power and have men question you at every turn and always having to prove yourself. I just loved that Raq got to be many different things and that was all in one script. Not just the strong woman, because that's easy. That's the easy thing for black women to play - strong. But I love that you got to see her vulnerable side with her son; her sexy and flirtatious side with Symphony; her very much like the Mama Bear when she goes to meet Unique; and then just the matriarch when the family is all together and that love."
