I cannot do this.

I cannot do this,

it's too much drama.

You just come out here and give me

all this information.

To have me go handle it by myself.

You're the one who told me anyways.

OK, OK, OK! I will go with you

under one condition.

You must promise to me that

there's not gonna be any drama.

Because as soon as there's

some drama, I'm out of there!

I promise. I promise.

Look at me in my eyes and promise!

I promise no drama, Alexandra!

Come on!

What the

f*ck you two looking at?

Bitch, like I am clockable!

You can't get it on me, bitch,

you can't get it on me, bitch.

I am fierce as f*ck.

I don't know what the f*ck

she was tripping on, girl.


1351 Orange?

- Yes, please.

- Alright.

Is that a dog or a cat?

A dog.

What's the name?


Alfie is a very

well behaved dog, huh?

It's so quiet.

It's empty.

And his breath always smells like

he's been eating ass for days!

I mean when I walk into the room, it

shouldn't always smell like homeless.

And those socks, why are those socks

so fucking black!

That's not a pimp.

What do you see in him?

Why are you looking for him?

Girl, you right! You right!

It ain't his ass I should be

worried about.

It should be that bitch.

She's the one trying

to come on my man.

Bitch, you're smart!

I'm gonna f*ck her up!

- That's not what I meant!

- That's exactly what you meant!

Because that bitch wants

to try with me.

- I didn't mean that!

- I can give pussy,

it's called a fucking tuck.

Oh, my God!

Look, there's Sin-Dee!

I haven't seen her for so long, girl.

She's looking good!

Oh, girl! What's up? What's the T?

Sin-Dee! Oh, my God.

So how was it, bitch?

Tell me the T!

Did you get a lot of trade

up in there or what?

I want you guys to come

to my show tonight.

I am so excited about that!
