In the f*cking bag. Lay it.

What you got over there?

Only ones. F*cking fives.

Check the back, man.

You make one move

and I'm gonna blow your head off.

You, stop f*cking moving, all right?

Now, I'm gonna count to three...

and then I'm gonna

blow his little head off, okay?

- That's enough. Let's go.


- Where's the money?

- Let's go! Let's go!

I said, let's go.

Oh, baby, come on!

How you gonna do this shit right now?

I told you, don't shoot nobody.

The first thing you do when we walk in

this motherf*cker is shoot somebody.

'Cause that's what I do!

I kill motherf*ckers, you know that!

You know, till I met you...

I didn't even get no respect

from anybody, you know?

None worth, you know, mentioning...

But I f*cking love you!

I'd do anything for you.

Now you go

and call me a f*cking nigga, man.

You gonna call me a nigga in front of

these motherf*cking Colombians?

- Where's the f*cking money?

- I said, I don't know.

I said, let's go.

All right. 'Cause that's all I am?

A nigga?

Take your f*cking money...

and you shoot this nigga

and go on with your bitch-ass life!

If you gonna be a man, be a man

and shoot me, motherf*cker!

Do you understand?

- No, no, please.

- Take it easy.


- Then calm the f*ck down right there.

- Take it easy.

Get your ass back in there.


- Come on.

- F*ck that bitch, let's go!

You coward. I'll kill you.

F*cking crazy-ass bitch!

I f*cking love you!

Come on.

Yo, yo, yo.

Lying there...

staring down the barrel of that nine...

I knew I was about to die.

I don't know why I was

expecting my father to rescue me.

I realized I had been looking for him

all my life.


This is my search.

That's my mom.

Those were the days.

Things you do

That keeps me satisfied

Problem was,

everyone was in love with my mom...

so anyone could be my dad.

One thing I was certain of,

I didn't have a white daddy.

And sure as hell, he wasn't a cop...

black or white.

Spent a lot of time

at my grandmother's.

That was a crowded house

with eight mouths to feed...

not including me.

Anybody know

how these things work, huh?

Hey, Marcus.

Hey y'all.

Help your granddaddy.

Show me how that work, huh?

- What you want, football?

- Yeah, football.

There you go.

Boy's a genius, huh?

Can you watch him for an hour?

Katrina, you know I'll watch him.

Thank you.

- I don't want that money.

- Come on, Mom.

Katrina, I said I don't need that money.

He's family.

Why you keep

leaving him like this, Katrina?


- Bye.

- Take care.

That's my Uncle Deuce.

- You look after him, okay?

- Pay you back.

He was the oldest and the meanest.
