[Intense hip-hop music]

[Pounding on door]

Hold on a minute.

MAN IN HALL:
What the f*ck?

JIMMY:
Hold on a f*ckin' minute!

[Hip-hop music stops suddenly]

[Hip-hop beat from other room]

[Vomiting]

[Pounding on door]

MAN IN HALL:
Yo, what the f*ck?

Quit playing with your f*cking self!

Open the door!

F*ck, man.

Who the f*ck is you, nigga?

Where are you going?

-Backstage. I'm in the battle.

-You can't.

-I got a stamp on my hand.

-Go around front.

-Man, you just seen me--

-I didn't see nothing.

You just f*cking seen me.

I went to the bathroom.

JIMMY:
He has a problem with me.

BOUNCER:
Shut up.

He's straight, dawg.

-He with you?

-Yeah.

Okay. Cool, Future. But your boy

got an attitude problem.

Come on. You're crazy,

trying to fight bouncers.

The guy's obviously got something

against me. I go to the bathroom--

Rise above that bullshit.

JIMMY:
Hold on, man.

FUTURE:
You f*cking threw up on yourself?

Come here!

CHEDDAR:
Hey, Rabbit.

DJ IZ:
I know you're ready, Rabbit.

CHEDDAR:
Where you goin'?

FUTURE:
He hurled on his shirt.

CHEDDAR:
Let me see.

JIMMY:
Get the f*ck off me.

What are you doing, man?

Come on, it's deal time.

Our clica will be on the map

after you whup some ass tonight.

Me and Janeane broke up.

FUTURE:
What, again?

JIMMY:
I left her the car.

Come on, Rabbit.

She said she's pregnant.

She's gonna need the car

if she's pregnant.

I'll need a place to crash.

You going to stay at your mum's?

Can I get some f*cking privacy here?

FUTURE:
All right, come on.

My bad, man.

If something's gonna happen with

this shit, it needs to happen now.

I feel you. I know exactly

what you're talking about.

All right, come on, man.

How you feeling?

JIMMY:
I feel good.

FUTURE:
You feel good?

FUTURE:
Sure?

JIMMY:
I'm ready.

FUTURE:
Ready, baby. I want to see you

rip that shit, all right?

Let these motherf*ckers know, man.

It's all you, baby. Three One Third.

[Rapping] Your lyrics are shitty

like when I cop a squat

Who told you to f*ck

with the mighty Papa Doc?

For stepping onstage

I should rock your knot

Don't get too close

or you might get shot

You need to call your momma

and tell her come get ya

If she knew him, she could bring

your midget pops with her

I put a hole in your head

Like a 12 gauge

Lookin' like Kris Kross

Jiggity jump yo' ass offstage

I'm a grown man, son

I'll slaughter you

Make your ma wish

her fat-ass aborted you

[Audience hoots]

FUTURE:
A lot of hostility at the end

of the 45 seconds. Let me get the mike.

Open up a little bit.

Let everybody see Future.

How y'all feel about Shorty Mike?

[Light applause]

FUTURE:
Kinda mediocre love?

Just all right for Shorty Mike?

All right, what about Papa Doc?

[Cheering and whistling]

All right, Papa,

you go to the next round.

FUTURE:
Next up is my man Bunny Rabbit...

and Lil' Tic.

Come on, bring your asses onstage.

We ain't got all day.

All right, enough of the fanfare.

-Heads or tails?

-Heads.

Tails. Choose.

You first.

Lil' Tic, set it off.

DJ, 45 seconds.

Spin that shit.

[Rapping] I'ma murder this man!

He's the type to lose

a fight with a dyke

They don't laugh 'cause you wack

It's 'cause you white with a mic

You're a laughingstock

When will this laughter stop?

When you and Everlast

bitch-ass get popped

You a wigga

that invented rhyme for money

Watch Lil' Tic spit kick

the Energizer Bunny

Rip the Rabbit head off

Toss it to Hugh Hefner

'Cause I don't play, boy

Tell me who's fresher

LT, that's right

Cock the heat and shoot ya

I'll punish Rabbit

or obsolete Future

My paws love to maul an MC
