The first episode of 50 Cent and Randy Huggins' latest show BMF aired on Starz last night (September 26).

Describing the emotional scene Hornsby said: "That moment at the end, that's the aspect of the heart that it displays, and then what comes in the heart that you can expect after that, and the emotion that these characters, that these people had to carry and had to live with. That's something that you don't oftentimes get in a lot of television and I think especially in Black television to be honest with you, is the immense amount of heart and passion."

When asked about the family dynamics between brothers Meech and Terry, The Hate U Give actor explained how they'll reach a "crossroads".

"What we end up seeing is we see the four of them – when we talk about the two boys, the mother and the father – we see them at a crossroads where they will have to make a decision as to who's needs this day they will serve. And as the saying goes, you can't be a Servant of Two Masters.

"I think the interesting thing is not just the decisions they make, but what the fallout is in the decision. And so it's not what happens, but how it happens and that's the story we're telling."

BMF airs on Starz in the US and streams on Starzplay, available through Amazon Prime Video, in the UK.
