Michael Rainey Jr. is celebrating his 21st birthday so we had to show him some love.
The rising star took the reins from Omari Hardwick in Power spin-off series, Power Book II: Ghost, after Omari’s character was killed off. Just one season in to Power Book II and the show is already a hit. Not only is the young actor doing his thing as a fictional up-and-coming kingpin/college student, fans are obsessed with the ensemble cast, which also includes Mary J. Blige, Method Man, Naturi Naughton, Woody McClain, and more. Michael recently hit Instagram to post the trailer for season 2, due on Starz Sunday, November 21.
He also let his followers know he plans on celebrating his 21st in Miami this coming weekend, alongside some special guests.
While many were skeptical about his ascension to the Power throne, Michael Rainey Jr. has proven that he can hold his own and carry his own show — and we love to see a young Black king rising to the top of his field.
Join us in wishing him a happy, happy birthday. More photos of him looking like a boss below.
