Irv Gotti and his family are back, and this time around it’s all about “breaking the cycle.” The first season of “Gotti’s Way” followed music mogul Irv Gotti in his efforts to resurrect his record label after being acquitted of money laundering charges in 2004. Now back for its second season, “Gotti’s Way 2” finds Irv still trying to breathe new life into his label, The Inc., as well as also juggling his responsibilities as a husband and father of three.
Premiering on Monday, May 4 at 10:30 PM ET/PT, “Gotti’s Way 2” provides an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Irv’s company and the music machine that he is, working with artists such as Ashanti, Lloyd, Ja Rule and more. Convinced that that hip-hop needs a shot in the arm and thinks he’s found what he’s looking for in his latest artist, Newz. The hip-hop mogul will pull out all of the stops to break Newz and halt the freefall of the suffering record industry.
“Gotti’s Way 2” will also continue to follow the tumultuous relationship between Irv and his estranged wife, Deb, by exposing their struggle to mend a severed relationship and make it functional for the sake of their family. Last season found Deb trying to pull away from Irv and begin taking steps to give herself a better life. This time around, she begins seeing a therapist in an attempt to better understand her situation and learn what she must do to begin the process of change. With help from her therapist Deb starts to gain a sense of independence, but will this new life be what she wants or is she happier with she and Irv’s non-traditional arrangement?
As Irv tries to revive The Inc. and Deb ventures out on her own, they still have to come together and make things work for their family. Sonny, JJ, and Angie continue their trials and tribulations of “growing up.” They may be non-traditional, but the Gotti’s are still a family: Angie is dating, beginning to look at colleges and considering career choices, Sonny is developing into a talented basketball player, and JJ is still the baby in the family. This is definitely not the Cosby’s or “Run’s House,” but life for Irv Gotti and his family is only going to be one way — “Gotti’s Way.”
