We already knew that Patina Miller’s Raquel Thomas was a badass, but she’s ready to remind her family there’s a reason she’s the brains of the business on Power Book III: Raising Kanan. The series, which is loosely based on executive producer 50 Cent’s life, centers on a 15-year-old Kanan Stark (Mekai Curtis) and his rise to becoming the drug dealer we know from Power. Although Raq has done her best to keep son Kanan out of the drug-dealing world, episode five reveals that secrets might just be their downfall. We’ve seen what happens when you mix business with pleasure; now we get to see what happens when Lou Lou (Malcolm Mays) tries to keep things separate and secret from Raq, thanks to POPSUGAR’s exclusive clip from episode six.
In the video, Raq discovers that not only has Lou Lou been spending their money without her permission for his new artist showcase, but he also refuses to allow her to push product during the event. “If we get this right, keep sh*t separate, we can start making a different type of money at the same time,” Lou Lou tries to reason. “What about Unique? ‘Cause you can be damned sure some of his peoples going to be coming through,” Raq replies. When the pair’s argument is interrupted, Raq lets Lou Lou have it.
