You can't get yourself

worked up like this,



Yo, Sparky...

What's up, nigga?

Yo, you see

my little brother around?

You sure?


Hey yo...

Wake your ass up!

Hello, Yuri...

Yeah, the new supply got done.

He had some family sh*t

to deal with.


You f***in' amateur.

Angel's first clue was

in his brother's profile status.

Jsus was dealing again.

But Angel knew

where to look for him

because in the Lower East Side

veryone has a friend in common.

Even though I didn't know it,

the girl and I

were already linked,

but the chain starts with Jsus.

He friend-quested everyone

he dealt drugs to.

Most didn't accepted.

I was one of the few who did.

I came over with my parents from

Nigeria to Newark NJ at age of 7.

Yeah, people really do

emigrate to New Jersey.

All I wanted is to be a DJ.

I met a girl named Alicia and

had a short run

when she got me gigs with

the coked-out trust fund set.

I dropped out of college cause we

had plans for New York together.

Until she dumped me

for a Rastafarian.

My parents practically

disowned me.

I got a job bar-backing at

The Void on Ludman Street,

But every night I dreamed that I'd

be spinning all over the world,

Berlin, Amsterdam, London.

But I never get there until I saved

enough to buy a Serato Scratch.

Then, I'd be legit.

So to get back to the girl,

there's a few more people along the way.

But there is no need

to remember them all,

except for this guy... Amir.

He's the only friend

I could always count on.

There is definitely no need

to remember Jeremy.

He lasted less than a month

at The Void.

He was fired for inappropriate

use of the restroom.

He would've gotten away with it

if they didn't wreck the sink,

causing the manager to check

the security tape.
