Ooh... oh, my god.

It's Naveen from

rough street records.

"Good morning.

I thought about what you said

"and I showed your stuff

to Richard last night.

"He liked what he saw.

But he agrees with me

"so here's the deal.

You have three months.

"We have our labor day weekend

showcase for new talent.

"You send me three songs. Richard

and I like one, you play it live."

That is the ticket.

We're in.

It sounds like

a whole lot of maybes to me.

Well, you know these

music industry guys.

They're just always

trying to play it cool.

No, I don't know

these record label guys.

All I know is that he did not

just offer you a contract.

And you know what? Time's up, baby.

You gotta get back to school.

Ma, can we just not talk about

school for, like, five minutes?

Coco, we had a deal.

I need to focus on

this demo right now.

I'll go back to school

in the fall, I promise.

You were supposed to

be out one semester.

Baby, it's been almost a year.

Baby, your father and I, we

have made ridiculous sacrifices

to make sure that

you got to college.

Well, I'll pay you back as

soon as I get a record deal.

You wanna pay me back?


Just get it over with, huh?

You're almost done.

Summer session

starts soon, right?

Just do it. It'll be

over before you know it.

I can't be 30, trying to

start my rap career, ma.

Your not goin' back to school

is not an option with me.

It is not gonna happen.

Not on my watch.

You wanna rap? Fine. But ya gonna

have to do it between classes.

Yo, what the f***?

What took so long?

I was... I dunno.

Are you gonna let me in?

What's up, y'all?

Coco, what's good, mama?
