Violence filled the streets as the

Mayor declared marshall law today.

Naming Detroit as the most

dangerous city in America.

The housing project has been sealed

off in the rest of the city.

The homicide rate is at

the highest in 40 years.

Community active project known as Brick

Mansions will become a ghost town.

More protesting of the

construction of the 44 foot wall

that will separate Brick Mansions

from the rest of the city.

These checkpoints control all the

people in and out of Brick Mansions.


This development is a beacon

of light in our dark city.

Eco friendly residences,

exclusive shops and offices

all situated on 20 acres of the most

valuable property that the city owns.

Now, with your cooperation

and your backing,

we're gonna restore Detroit

to it's former glory.

Mr. Mayor.

This land is currently the Brick

Mansions housing project.

In order for this to go up,

that has to come down.

Yes, what is it do you envision for

the people currently living there?

Well, as your Mayor I can assure you

that all the people of this fine city

will be taken care of.

Gentleman, to the future.

- Yo, yo, yo.

- What's up killer?

Check that sh*t out.

What's cooking my brothers?

Yeah, you best keep

on rolling dawg.

- What are you doing here K2?

- Come on now, why the hate?

I'm looking for Lino. He's

got something for me.

- Lino ain't here.

- Nah.

I'm gonna bet Lino's

up there right now.

He thinks he can change the

ghetto 20 kilos at a time.

Bet your ass ain't

gonna find out.

I'm gonna leave you my number.

And when Mr. Clean comes back,

you tell him to give me a call.

Come on, K2.

Fill them up.

- Y'all know where Lino stay at?

- Yes.

Come on.

- Where?

- Right, right.


At the end of that

hall, left door!

I'm gonna get you.

Knock this damn door down.

On my count.

One, two...

Catch that little b*tch!

Lock this piece of

sh*t building down!

- She is cute, I know.

- She's got a great ass, man.

- Hi kids.

- Hey Lino.

Ah, hell no.

- Tremaine's gonna slice y'all.

- What do we do?

Who's we?

I'm gonna kill

this motherf***er!

Get him!

He's on the roof!

What's going on man?

Damien, you forgot me.

No, I'm just throwing

some overtime at work.

How much do you need?

Okay, well...

I will see what we can do.

But never call my

cellular phone again.

Who give him my number?

Mr. George, I'm

sorry, I didn't know.

Where was I?

- K2.

- K2.

Loses a package. Needs another

20 before Tremaine flips out.

Best part, he wants

it delivered.

Guess we have to go

to Brick Mansions.

Now, who wants to venture into

that shithole on a Friday night?

I would.

Think you can handle it?

I am known as a handler.

All right.

You know, my mama will

be turning her grave

if she see me adding this much

hot pepper to her recipe.

Though I appreciate most

of my mother's recipe.

You get the right ingredients.

You can never go wrong.

Which leads us to

this morning, K2.

I believe you had the right

ingredients and clear instructions.

Bring back Lino and my 20 kilos

that he jacked from you.

Yet here we are,

no Lino, no kilos.

Look, big dawg, me and

Rayzah, you know...

Don't you go blame

this on a woman, dawg.

There's five of my men down. They

become your little sh*t show.

That's five more

souls thats gone.

Should I make six?

Should I make it six?

I pay good money

for your services.

I need some good ideas.

You got any good ideas?

How about you? Any ideas?

No, sir.

And that's six. Shall

I make it seven?

Hold up, hold up,

Lino got a girl.

Back in the day, he helped

her get out of the hood.

We grab that b*tch and I swear

he's gonna come around.

- You know where she's at?

- Yeah, we know where she at.

Don't come back

here without her.

Yo, trust me man.

All right.

That's it, George the Greek.

How long you've been with

me now Damien, a year?

Yeah, about that.

It's time for you to see

what we're all about.

Where are you going? Go

park the car in the back.

Cheng, how is it going?

You kill me, Cheng.

Damien, Cheng. Cheng, Damien.

- You're a man of many talents.

- I try.

Cheng, you have

some change for me?


All team, they've

gone underground.

You ever been to

Southeast Asia, Damien?

No, I never been there.

He's found the stash.

Hey, prep me 20

key, it's a rush.

South East Asia planted this

drug by the side of the road

which is why the dope

there is worth sh*t.

But everytime it crosses a

border, it triples in value.

Used to be that, by the

time it got to the States

there was only so much

profit you can squeeze.

And then, we got Brick Mansions.

Our very own border and

it's less than a mile away.

I went to business school, the

best business school in the world.

4 years, half a million bucks.

You just have to

remember one thing.

People pay the most for

what they cannot get.

Can I have that GPS?

The routes are pre programmed.

Don't lose it.

Hey boss, take a look at this.

How the hell did they

know we're here?

Now they know we are here.

We weren't suppose to be here.

No one knows we're here, unless

that person is already here.

Damien, you take this.

Take them out.

In the sewers! Let's go!

Go to the marker!

All teams, go!

Give me the phone.

- Put it down!

- The hell are you doing?

Nobody move! Those are my friends

outside, you're all under arrest!

Now I want you all to put
