What's going on, homie?

You okay?

It's Saturday.

Mama's gotta work

to buy you those sneakers.



Oh, baby, I love you.

- I love you, too.

- I gotta go, okay?


- Hey, Marcus, you coming out?

- Can I go out?

- Go on.

- Yo, Marcus!

Come on, Marcus. Come on.

Hey, how you doing?

Come on, let's go, Marcus.

Bye, Mom!

- Bye.

- Bye.

That boy got the bug bad.

Hey, right here. I'm open!

I knew my mom sold drugs...

but it didn't mean nothing to me

but good sneakers and school clothes.


She always made sure

I had the best of everything.

You know what's really happening

It's happening

'Cause this is my crew

and it's happening

And this is how we do

when it's happening

Cause it's happening

Couldn't get next you


When you're ready I'll be ready

So you let me know

Any way you want to go, girl

I'm down to go

Young Caesar busting through

with the incredible flow

You ain't never heard an MC

like this before

Turn the boombox up

Let the sounds play

Run DMC, Cool J, NWA

If I was your best friend

I'd want you around all the time

Best friend

Girl, I wanna make you mine

Best friend

Girl, you know I think you're fine

Best friend. Together, me and you

Hey, Mom.

It's 3:
00 in the morning.

It is?

- So who's your best friend?

- Nobody.


A girl.

Promise me...

that you are gonna treat the girls right.

- What?

- Promise me...

that you're gonna treat the girls right.


Are you all right, Mom?

But I know I can't live without my radio

Fucking Slim. What's he doing here?

That's the purest coke right there.

Don't get out of the car.

What's going on? What you doing, huh?

- I'm handling my business...

- You handling your business?

Get the f*ck out of here!

What the f*ck are you doing?

I got shit on my boot, bitch.
