Over the course of the past three seasons, Tariq (played by Michael Rainey Jr) has grown distant from his father Ghost (Omari Hardwick) as he learned more about his drugs business and the lies he told his children. Tariq also grew closer to his father’s enemy, Kanan (Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson). Could the reason why Tariq wants to be like Kanan instead of Ghost is because he’s actually the former’s son? Here are the big clues which suggest they’re related you missed.
First of all, Kanan killed his son Shawn in season two in cold blood.
Shawn had been growing closer to Ghost and his family, which Kanan didn’t like.
In fact, Shawn had kind of become a son to Ghost and had fallen head over heels for his wife Tasha St Patrick (Naturi Naughton).
This is important, because it wasn’t until Shawn mentioned he was leaving New York with “Tasha and the kids,” that Kanan.

Why would Kanan be so upset about this? Is it because it would mean Shawn would be raising his children?
Another clue was dropped during Kanan’s conversation with Jukebox after Ghost had tried to kill him.
Jukebox asked her friend why he wanted revenge on Ghost and what had he taken from Kanan.
Kanan said “his son,” could he be talking about Tariq?
