Moneymakin' Mitch.

Family movin' up in the business.
I know you gonna look after family.
What family you talking about, Ice?
F**k, I look invisible, n***a?
Did I pa** the test, compre?
It's not--
It's not a test.
I'm just sayin'.
You like money, right'?
Yeah.
I'm broke, baby.
I ain't got no money.
Bullsh*t.
I see you shinin', n***a.
I can smell a motherf**ker with money.
Even Ray Charles could see
you got money.
Dang.
Look at this n***a.
Little Sonny and his crew,
the future of our nation.
Ain't that a b*t*h?
Damn, man.
You got the John Wayne sh*t, man.
F**kin' gun all up

What's that?
You tell me, man.
It looks like coke, n***a.
You f**k me up, A.
You never say sh*t, B.
Just come out the blue
with some coke, huh?
Well, to tell you the truth,
I ain't f**kin' with coke right now, man.
The sh*t just ain't clickin', B.
You know what you need to do, man?
You need to f**k with that cat
your sister be talkin' to,
that n***a, Calvin, man.
He sells coke.
Nah, I ain't f**kin' with that n***a, man.
He's dumb.
- Hey, man, what, man?
- What you mean "what?"
I'm just tryin' to picture Mr. Jefferson
hustlin' on these streets.
I've seen you roll up in the black Saab
with the gold BBS's, man.
I said, "Damn, this d**kety-stick
is really makin' this money.
He's really makin' money, man,"
you understand?
Listen, hey.
It ain't just about the money.
It's not.
You know what it's about, man?
It's about f**kin' those skeezers
like that right there,
It's about drivin' these fly-a** cars,
And it's definitely about never dressin'
like a n***a like you, man.
Okay, man.
Come on, man. Let's go be stars

Yeah, baby!
Dance it up, y'all!

And Mitch got love from everybody.
I mean, everybody.
What are you doing?
Go to sleep, little man.
Lucky, you're up.
You workin' today?
You know, don't call me "Lucky," Ma.
Been a long time since
I found food stamps
or something like that.
Now, don't forget when you
picked that $700--
Ma, that was when I was 12-years-old,
you know what I'm sayin'?
I'm grown now, and there ain't
a whole lot lucky to do with me
getting up and goin' to work right now,
So, I don't wanna be called "Lucky."
Thanks, Mom.
All right, baby.
Guess your sister got to get
a better man now.
Boy just got busted by the cops.
He was dealing right in front
of your building.
Didn't I tell you?
Can't do sh*t with that cash now
except hire a lawyer.
- Did you see it?
- Nah.
I heard about it on the way over here.
Cops must've been watching
his dumb a**.
Yo, chief, you seen Calvin?
Nah, he got locked up.
Yo, takin' his place?
Never mind.
Yo, yo, yo, yo,

Hold on one second, man.

Just one.
A'ight.
F**k, B.

What? Bottle?
What you need
a bottle for, man?
Plastic bottle,

Damn, this is a
big-a** rock, B.
Mmm!
All this for a hundred?
Man, this is better than Calvin's stuff.
Word up.
Yo, I could hook up

Nah, man, I'm across the street.
The building across the street.
All right, G.
Peace out.
You know what this is?
Yeah. It's coke.
Yes, but that's a kilo of coke.
How much is it worth?
$25,000.
- Damn.
- No "damn."
Damn, that's damn good, okay?
A'ight, I'm sayin'--
The sh*t on the street is garbage.
This crud that's washed
with acetone and kerosene.
This is the best product,
and you gonna be the only one
in the street holding this.
$25,000.
$25,000
is the street price.
Of that,
I get $18,000.
$7,000.
That's right, for every key that you move.
You know I--
I still got my job
at the cleaners, um...
No, it's perfect, man,
Because that's how
everybody knows you as Ace.
Forget about heroin.
This is the wave of the future, baby.

or some sh*t like that, man.
This is Harlem, man.
Y'all n***as better hold it down, B.
Y'all don't know nothin' about this.
Things really got hot in Harlem
when "Scarf ace" came to town.
It was like n***as love
seein' a poor-a** Cuban
just blow up to be the man all by himself.
You wait for me.

You wanna f**k with me? Okay.
You c*ckroaches.
Come on.
You wanna play games?

You wanna play rough? Okay.
Say hello to my little friend!
You want more?
Mitch backed up his words
and ended up doing some time.
Now I'm all by myself in the game,
just like Scarf ace.
What's up, old man?
What's going on over here, man?
Man, bust it.
You ain't taking my messages
or something?
Keisha didn't call?
I dropped some tickets
behind this counter,
And this is what I find.
Is this yours
or you keepin' it for a friend?
Man, it ain't even like that, Mr. Pip.
Well, then, what's it like, Ace?
It really ain't none
of your business what it's like.
It's my store.
Anything up in here is my business.
You don't have to worry about that.
I'm gonna take that out of here.
I got a life of my own.
Oh, check you out.
I guess you know somethin'
about the game Calvin didn't, huh?
Ace, you better say something to
me if you wanna stay here,
'cause, see, I ain't doing
these type of favors for no--
I'm missing one of my tapes.
You seen my tape?
Yeah, you been wantin'

Fine, f**k it then.
Take your a** home.

Hey, June.

Hey, Ace.

Nah.
Oh, so what's going on, honey?
You wanna make some money'?
Yeah. Come on in.
Yo. Check this out.
How many bottles is this?

Damn. 2,000 bottles?
That's a lot

This sh*t ain't gonna

All that for $50?
Yo, man, this sh*t weak

Hey, man, you know me, man.

Don't insult me. Here.
Man, f**k it, man.

Give me two of them Jones.
You trippin'.
Yeah, I was trippin', a'ight,
But I was gettin' money.
Talkin' 'bout real money.
Bottle this sh*t up quick, man.
See, other dealers were selling it
at the highest price they could get.
I sold it cheaper,
so I was sellin' it faster.
I sold it so cheap I started
taking their customers away.
See, I was wholesale
on the streets, you understand?
Hey, Lucky,
you want something to drink?
Don't call me Lucky, I said.
Whatever, Lucky.
What you drinkin'?
Fillin' this all the way up.
Now, in the end,
I made more money,
and Lulu always got his return
when he wanted it.
But I wasn't trying to keep
sh*t all to myself, see.
I wasn't tryin' to get on the stage,
and I didn't want people hatin'.
I put people on, understand?
Streets was happy.
Everybody could eat.

Oooh.

Damn, B.!
Hey, yo!

Yo, come on, man.
You watchin' that a**--
Count that cash so we can

In lockup,
brothers always heard
what was goin' on on the outside,
especially when it involved money.
And they knew Mitch was first in line
to get put on when he got out.
Have you been
keepin' it tight for me?
Yo! Hurry up off the phone, n***a!
Wait. Hold on a second, B.
Did you hear what I just said?

front street all the time, baby.
Okay, take it easy, man.
Keep your voice down, man.
Keep your voice down.
N***as ain't gonna talk.
Hey, yo, A., man,

You know, I'm with y'all n***as
'cause I'm lovin' this sh*t
and everything, B.
But n***as wanna position
theyselves to make other moves.
Half of these n***as
wanna be the man "just 'cause."
All I'm sayin', A.
I'm not everybody, B.

But everybody do need to check out
that n***a right there,
'cause he's gettin' money
and pu**y.
And n***as need to be gettin' it
just like that, A.,
in that position right there.
On video and sh*t.
Funny-a** n***a, man.
You ain't even seen

Don't forget to pick up on them, y'all.
Got it right here in the deejay booth.
Yo, man, let me talk to
you for a minute.
On the roller skates, my man.
On the roller skates.
Keep it movin'. Let's go. Whoo!
Yo, what's up with your man?
Who, Rico?
No, I'm talking about this kid
you got running my block for me.
I mean, he's cool and all that.
Don't get me wrong.
Kind of reminds me of you
when you was out here
runnin' 'round broke.
But the point is,
I don't f**kin' need him.
You hot.
- I'm hot?
- Yeah, n***a, you hot.
You just got out the joint,
understand what I'm sayin'?
The cops are watching you.
Yes, you hot.
Come on, A.,
what you take me for, man?
Your man Mitch just got out of jail.
Is you schooling him like this, too?
I don't have to do that
with him, man.
You just need to lay low, man.
That's all you gotta do.
I'm hookin' you up.
How is you hookin' me up?
How I'm hookin' you up?
N***a, you got money in your f**kin' pocket?
I'll deal the block.
It's my block.
No. You can't do that,
'cause if you get f**kin' busted,
you f**kin' all of my sh*t up.
You understand that?
And I ain't havin' that.
You better have this the way
I'm givin' this to you, or you can step.
Man, f**k him.
He don't get sh*t anyway.
Who the f**k is this
Kermit the frog-face a** n***a

Co, co, co, co, co.
Slap the sh*t out you, B.
Hold on one motherf**kin' second, man.
I said I got it
over here, man, thank you.
You know what, A.?
I see you out here,
You're doin' your thing
with your man, and that's cool.
He's a funny guy and all that.
So, I'm gonna step, a'ight?
But I'll see you later.
F**k out of here.
Man, I keep tellin' you
the same f**kin' thing about things, man.
You always tellin' me, man?
What the f**k is the use havin'
soldiers if you can't use 'em'?
That's why I'm Rico.
That's why I do what I do, man.
Mmm. What's up, baby?
Nothin'.
Mm-hmm.
So, when we gonna have this kid?
As soon as you start spendin'
more time with me.
Now you're stressin' me'?
Come on, baby.
It's just--
This is the last time we gonna have alone,
and you just visitin' already.
Did I say I was gonna be there?
- Yes.
- Okay.
Okay-
It's gonna be fine, baby.
It's gonna be a nice, fine,
boring life.
Sonny.
Sonny.
Sonny, come on.
Get up, man. What you doin' here?
Huh'? What you doin' here?

Go ahead.
Hey, Sonny, you hear me

Well.
Moneymakin' Mitch.
High roller come to visit.
What the f**k you doin' here, Ice?
You live here?

The f**k you talkin'--
F**k off me, man.
Yo! I'm tired of seeing you
comin' through them doors, man.
You in here,

Don't f**kin' come back no more!
You understand that?
Hey, baby, you the one sold me the drugs
I'm gettin' high on, come on.
Don't f**kin' walk away from me, n***a.
I sold you those drugs
so that you could make money,
you forgetful motherf**ker!
You got high,

- I f**ked up?
- Yeah, you f**ked up!
No, no, no,
no, no, no.
You f**ked up!
What, you think bringing
a couple bags of groceries
in here means somethin'?
You ain't supportin' sh*t.
You got a pocketful of money!
You won't even give your mama
no real money!
Hey, what about Sonny'?
Aw, you so worried about Sonny.
Oh, that's right.
He gonna follow in your footsteps.
Moneymakin' Sonny.
I better not ever see your f**kin' a**
walk through these doors again!
You understand me?
Let me tell you somethin'.
You, Tommy, the rest of them
bum-a** n***as at the store

You ain't never gonna see
none of my money. Never!
You understand that?
Get the f**k out of here!
Get the f**k out!
And give me them f**kin' keys, man.
Get the f**k out of here!

I think I need to go out tonight, man.
All right?
Meet me at the top.
We're gonna party for real.

You know, I just need
to be around some love, that's all.

All right, well, come around here, baby.
Come on the other side of this gate.
I'll show you some love, Mitch.
Come on, d**k.
Come on, d**k.
You wanna see some love?
It's love day.
I'm showin' people love

You ain't ready for me, A.

I'm sayin' y'all got to know
who's coming to the stage to represent.
Are y'all ready to rock or what?
All right, without any further ado,
we want to bring to the rooftop stage
the one, the only, the world's greatest,
Doug E. Fresh!
Everybody from the rooftop

Let me hear you say, "Ho! Ho!"
HQ!
Ho! Ho!

Say, "Ho! Ho!"
HQ!
Ahh!
Make the shot there, baby.
That's all, Mitch.

Ah, n***a, that's all.

But double up.

Hello?

Ohh!

Yo, get this n***a some light.

Yo, Calvin, man,

Look at me.
No!
Look at me.
I said look at me!
You think I'm some
Kermit motherf**ker now? Huh?
Listen, man, don't f**kin' do this, man.
You think I'm f**kin' playin'?
Open the safe!
Hold on, man!
Now, next time I ain't gonna miss.
Night?
There ain't even no money
in this safe, man.
There ain't sh*t in here.
I got 100 grand at the crib.
Look at this n***a playing games.
There ain't no money in the safe.
I can't see with f**kin' blood in my eyes.
Get his a** up out of here.
F**k!
Take his a** home.
Clean him up.
Get up, man!
Get up, man!
Get in there, man.
Now, I told you now, I'm not playin'.
Shut the f**k up!
What's the f**kin' combination? Huh?
Shut up with that cryin' sh*t!
I'm not trying to hear that!
What's the f**kin' combination?
Aah!
She was 7 pounds.
And her daddy survived.
Only God and love
could have kept me breathing
after all those bullets.
I told myself when I could
breathe without a tube
I was gonna breathe deep.
What's up?
N***a needs some work, man.
What's goin' on?
Ain't nothin' pumpin' right now, B.
Come on, man.
I know y'all got something.
F**k, is you deaf, man'?
I said we ain't got sh*t goin'

So a n***a's supposed to starve
'cause your man got shot?

- Damn!
What's that, partner?
Calvin must got

Calvin'?
What, you one of Calvin --

Is you one of Calvin's
hoes, man?
Get that n***a out of the car, man.
Get that b*t*h out of the car.
Get the f**k up.
Get up. Do you know what Calvin did?
- Come on, man. Don't do this.
- Get the f**k undressed.
Your sneakers, too!
Next time you talk about Calvin.
Get off the block!
With me out the gang,
sh*t got dry up on the
streets real quick.
Watch your f**kin' mouth next time!
And Rico ain't showin' nobody love.
F**kin' bullsh*t.
Ay, oh, ay, n***as get
shot every day, B.
You be a'ight, n***a.
You're tough, right?
I'm out, Rico.
You understand what I'm saying?
Look at me.
I've been shot in the head, baby.
My body different.
I'm breathing different.
You understand what I'm saying'?
The doctor said I wasn't gonna
walk the same.
You understand what I'm saying?
I'm out.
Yo, A., man, pull your skirt down, B.
The streets is missing you, yo.
Come on, man. What you want--
Give all this sh*t up?
Yo, A., man, it's like this, man.
We down on our last bricks, man.
Sh*t's drying up out there.
You hear me?
N***as ain't eatin' on the streets.
Everybody gettin' antsy

I know what floats A's boat.
Remember this, n***a?
We can go right around the corner.
Like I'm some kind of hoe.
You got paper.
- Right here.
- What's poppin', Kermie?
Aah!
A'ight, n***a?
You clean now.
Aah!
That motherf**ker's gone.
He's not coming back, B.
I laid the murder game down.
Letting n***as know
we not f**kin' around, man.
Let's just cool, yo.
What the f**k are you doing, man?
Do you even know
what you're doing, man?
Don't have the f**kin' cops
coming up in here
looking for me, man,
on account of some sh*t you did.
You understand?
Sh*t is hot.
Well, then you need to give up the connect
and let us handle sh*t then, B.
Look, man, we know what's hot
on the streets, man.
Believe me, man.
We out there e'day.
But, yo, man, we just got to
take it easy, man. That's it.
I mean, it's like what the f**k
are we waiting for, Bf?
You know your connects

We wastin' time.
And there's crack sh*t movin' in.
You know what?
You just need a little more rest, B.
Cover up.
Get you some soup.
Some tea.
Come on, man.
You're talking crazy, B.
Ay, yo, check here your man.
Give him a thermometer,
take his temperature or something, man.
I'm outta here, Mitch.
Peace, baby.
Still got the flash of that gun
in my head, man.
That white light.
And it was like that light, man,
was sayin',
"You're dead."
A., you ain't got to be
thinking about that, man.
You here. You blessed.
A'ight, baby?
You blessed.
Seeing that light for a long time.
Gettin' this money.
Trying to stay, you know,
trying to stay up out the light.
Up out the spotlight,
the club,
and all that kind of stuff, man.
Trying to hide.
Trying to, you know--
But it's all fake.
Understand what I'm sayin'?
This life.
This game,
there ain't no love in it.
It don't love you back.
No. I feel ya, A.
I do, man.
But see, man,
a n***a like me, man,
I love the game.
I love the hustle, man.
I be feelin' like one of them
ball-playin' n***as, you know'?
Like Bird or Magic
or something.
Yeah, you know a n***a got dough.
A n***a could leave the league.
But if I leave,
the fans still gonna love me, man'?
I get love out here in Harlem, man.
I done sold coke on these streets, man.
Hash, weed, heroin.
As long as n***as is feeling it,
a n***a like me can hustle it.
That's my gift in life, A.
You know?
What? What the f**k you laughing at, B.?
You, man.
You're funny, man.
You're a hustling motherf**ker, man.
For real, baby.
You're f**kin' killin' me, man.
Come on.
You know me, baby.
Man.
Yo. I'm gonna hook you up
with that connect, man.
I'm gonna put in a word.
You just gotta give me some time
to make it happen.
Man, you just take all the time.
You just get better, baby. A'ight?
Definitely.
Yeah, what up?
Who this?
Wait, wait, wait.

Wait, calm down.
Calm down, first of--

What's up, Ma?
What's going on?
Huh?

Sonny!
Mitch.
What the f**k is th--
Who gave this to you?
What's this a joke or something?
Where's this n***a Ice?
You told him not to come here!
What is he supposed--
Look, I know what I told him to do.
Look, did he tell you anything?
Does he know anything?
No, Mitch! Sh*t!
Just pay the guy!
What are you talkin' about?
Who gave this to you?
Look, look, look.
Stop talking about my money.
Look, let me find out what's going on first!
Just calm down.
Calm down!
Get away.
Look, he's probably on 42nd street
playing video games
or something like that, all right?
Let me just take care of it.
Let me look and see what's going
on out there first.
All right? Calm down.
Yo, A., Sonny's gone, man.
What?
Yo, somebody took him, man. Somebody.
What you mean somebody took him?
Nah, this sh*t is real, B. They came around,
they dropped off a note, man,
asking for money, man.
Who? Who?
Look, they want $500,000
or they gonna kill him or something.
That's what they said, man.
Sh*t. $500, 000. W-w--
I only got 120 thou on me right now, cash.
A., I need that connect, man.
I need to get these keys, man,
so I can get this money
for Sonny's ransom fee.
Slow down a second, man.
I got you. You know, I got you-
You know what I'm saying?
'Cause this ain't for him, A.
This ain't for him, man.
Right.
They j*rked him, man.
They f**kin' j*rked him, man.
They sent me his finger
in an envelope, man.
All bloody and sh*t.
I don't know what to do, A.
I don't, man.
I feel naked out here, B.
I'm thinking about how they got Sonny
in some abandoned building
or some basement
just f**kin' bleedin', man.
He's dyin', man.
They're killin' my little man, B.
I'm about to beat on
some real murder sh*t, A.
I'm telling you, man.
Any n***a that ever looked
at me wrong,
owes me money,
or ever said any jealous
bullsh*t about me is f**kin' dead.
You understand what the f**k
I'm saying, A.?
They're f**kin' dead, man.
I don't give a f**k
about nothing, man.
But I need my little man back, B.
I need him back, man.
I'm dead out here, man.
I can't function.
I can't, B.
There's 22 keys.
14 of them for Sonny.
8 of them I kept.
Sell those,
pay this connect back.
It's in the bag,
you know what I mean?
Yeah. A'ight.
F**kin' hear anything, man.
You understand?
You got what you need'?
Yeah.
Let me know, man.
'Cause that's my motherf**kin'
little man, too, man.
Let me know.
It's gonna be a'ight.
It's gonna be a'ight, man.
Gonna get him back, man.
No doubt.
Keisha?
What's wrong?
F**k.
They found Sonny?
No. Not Sonny.
They found Mitch.
He got-- He got shot in the head, baby.
He's dead.
What?
He's dead!
F**k!
F**k! F**k! F**k!
Oh.
What?
F**k!
F**k!
All I had left of Mitch
was his voice in my head
saying that he was gonna meet
up with Rico that night.
You good?
You know I got all my n***as
lookin' for the little n***a now, B.
Sonny like my little brother, too.
Anything you need let me know.
Good-lookin', baby,
'cause I need your help, Ric.
I need you to help me sell these 14 keys
so I can get this ransom money
for Sonny, man.
You got 14 bricks right there?
Yeah.
- Who'd you off-- A.?
- Yeah, man, but look, B.
Once we get my little
brother back, man,

We right the f**k back on
once I get Sonny.
It's gonna be business-- ohh!
Hey, yo, A.
What up?
You a'ight, B.?
No, man.
F**ked up.
You know I'm f**ked up
over this sh*t, too, B.
I murdered them n***as
who did that sh*t to Mitch, B.
I'm trying to find out.
I haven't found
any of the damn keys
in that building with Mitch.
Keys?
Yeah, I gave Mitch a set of keys
to get Sonny back, man.
I know he had the f**kin' keys
in there with him, man.
Now, you know, I got to get
the money or the keys, man,
To pay this connect back with.
Hey, yo, B., why you ain't
callin' me on that sh*t, B.?
You know I would have went
with that n***a Mitch
and made that sh*t
happen for you, ay.
I know, I know, man.
That's on me. I f**ked up.
You talk to Mitch yesterday?
I ain't talked to Mitch
or see that n***a
the whole goddamn day
yesterday, B.
What happened to your face, man?
What?
I said, "What happened to your face?"
This sh*t?
I was f**kin' with this
wild-a** b*t*h last night.
You know how I play, B.
That's wild, boy.
You a wild motherf**ker, man.
- Yeah.
- You videotape that sh*t?
You think you know me and sh*t, man.
I ain't tape that sh*t last night, B.
I kept another set of keys,
understand?
To sell for when
the ransom was paid.
Now, look, the way
sh*t is now, man,
It's too hot out on the streets
for me to be caught with myself
trying to go out there
and conduct something.
I'm gonna need you to do me this.
I want you to sell
these keys for me.
Give me the money,
I can pay it to the connect.
You know what I'm sayin'?
Then I take you in there,
introduce you to the connect.
So you want me to sell all the keys?
Yeah. It's like this.
I been talking to these
kids from out of town
who say, you know,
they'd take these keys--
Buy them at a higher price
than what's goin'.
You understand what I'm sayin'?
So, you know, all you
got to do is sell them.
Then you take the extra cheese
off the top.
You understand what I'm sayin'?
Then I can walk away.
We all can walk away set.
And you're cool
with that?
I'm cool.
I'm cool with that.
I don't believe you, A.
I mean, you gonna give
up all this sh*t?
About how much?
Yeah, n***a.
I said I was going.
I wanted out.
Oh, no. I'm gonna need more
than that for sure.
I wasn't playin' when I said that.
You understand?
What's up, man?
A'ight?
- A'ight.
- Good.
Let's go up here.
After you.
You're crazy, B.
N***a f**king giving up.
I love you, B.
Put it down!
F**king gonna give up
all this sh*t, man.
Freeze! Put your hands up!
- You a'ight?
- No. I'm f**ked up, man. You understand?
Drop the bag!
Drop the bag!
Anything you need let
me know, man.
Down!
You lookin' to play no ball, baby?
Yo, A., call me, B.
Call me, B.
A'ight?
Yeah, I called him.
And I gave him the number
of fake-a** dealers
who turned out to be the feds.
See, I knew Rico's
greed would destroy him
and set me free.
I'm sure that he would say
I went out like a punk.
But f**k it.
It's a price I could live with.
I don't like the motherf**ker anyway.
I did it.
25 to life--
I did that.
Rico can't live with that.
I ain't snitchin' on nobody
from Harlem, man.
I'll give you a couple cats
down in D.C.
doing they thing out of town,
doing they thing,
but, um, I'm not snitchin'
on nobody in Harlem
'cause when I come home,
I'm still gonna be the King.
Meanwhile,
Janet sat by the phone,
but no more calls came.
Mitch had it right about Ice.
His uncle was the one
not looking out for family.
His bitterness
towards his nephew Mitch
was taken out on his other
nephew Sonny.
His own blood.
Tommy did Ice's dirty work.
When the ransom money didn't come,
he killed Sonny.
The game was over.
All right, you know what I'm sayin'?
Now there's a new game.
Us old players are gone.
But you can see our story
on music videos
with prop guns
and fake champagne.
I guess you don't have to be
somebody no more.
I guess you can just front like
you somebody you ain't.
I have a family.
Lulu's bag of diamonds made
a down payment on a new life.
As my man Mitch would say,
"Life is good."
Maybe I will be the George Jefferson
of the neighborhood.
I'll get back to you on that.
Like "what?"
looking down here like--
Look at the world like
down here like "what?
Money, money.
Action!
Battle physically.
Conquer mentally.
Battle physically.
Conquer mentally.
Battle physically.
