‘Power Book IV: Force’ Theme Song Revealed by 50 Cent
The countdown is on until the premiere of Power Book IV: Force, the fourth chapter in the Power universe. Starring Joseph Sikora, the show follows New York City gangster Tommy Egan as he moves forward from the death of his best friend James “Ghost” St. Patrick and tries to rebuild his life.
Traumatized by the events of the past, Tommy leaves for California but makes a detour in Chicago that “turns into a labyrinth of family secrets and lies Tommy thought were long buried,” via Deadline. The show features 50 Cent, Lil Durk, and Jeremih in its theme song and will release on Starz on Feb. 6.
‘Power Book IV: Force’ finds Tommy on a ‘quest to become the biggest drug dealer in Chicago’
Deadline detailed the show in a report. The outlet reported that, after arriving in Chicago, Tommy would “quickly” become involved in the city’s drug trade, “inserting himself between the city’s two biggest crews.”
“In a city divided by race, Tommy straddles the line, ultimately becoming the lynchpin that not only unites them – but holds the power to watch them crumble,” the statement continues. “Tommy uses his outsider status to his advantage, breaking all the local rules and rewriting them on his quest to become the biggest drug dealer in Chicago.”
Sikora teased more information about the show on Instagram Live. “What you can expect on the show is a lot more of the same from Tommy,” he said, “but he’s got nothing. So remember, he left New York with nothing. He left New York with a bunch of money, some guns, some burners, and that’s it. Just everything he had on his person. So you’re gonna watch Tommy rebuild himself in real-time.”
In addition to Sikora, the cast of Power Book IV: Force features Isaac Keys (Get Shorty), Kris D. Lofton (Empire), Lili Simmons (Ray Donovan), Gabrielle Ryan (The Haves and the Have Nots), Shane Harper (Hightown), and Anthony Fleming III (Prison Break), among others.
Sikora also hinted at original character returns, including Michael Rainey Jr.’s Tariq St. Patrick.
