Yo, yo, yo, yo...

Every group of friends

has that one song

that, no matter where you are

or what you're doing, it

pulls you out of your seat.

That was me and my

crew, the Flossy Posse.

1990, Chubb Rock jumps up

on the scene with a lean

And a pocket full of green

I know.

Trust me, everything you had,

we had it and did it better.

- Yo, yo, yo, yo

- Treat me right

- Yo, yo, yo, yo

- I'll treat you good

- Yo, yo, yo, yo

- Treat me right

- Yo, yo, yo

- I'll treat you good

Yo, yo...

But those were my

girls, thinking we were

the baddest chicks in the game.

Definitely the baddest

chicks at FAMU.

- Flossy Posse!

- Ah! - Hey!

There was Sasha, a journalism major

with intelligence to shine

on the country's most

respected publications.

Then she ended up doing a, um,

different kind of journalism.

It may not be Pulitzer


but she's making it happen.

She's gonna be fine. I don't

even know why... You know.

We've gone through this before.

I already know, you know?

- Here she comes.

- There was Dina.

She was a risk-taker.

It's chlamydia, y'all!

That's sh*t you can cure! Hey!

- But that's our girl.

- I knew it!

Of course, there's Lisa.

Despite being the sexy party girl,

she was a natural nurturer.

She gave love, even

when it didn't love her.

- Aw, come here, baby. Aw.

- Aw, baby.

Me? I'm Ryan Pierce,

- successful author...

- I like your dress.

You write best-selling

books. You cook on talk shows.

You make appearances

all across the country.

How do you have time for a life?

As women, we're told that we have to choose

between the personal and the professional,

but I control my own destiny.

I am strong,

I am powerful, I am beautiful.

If I will it,

I can have it all.

Married my college sweetheart.

So, I'm a huge fan, Stewart.

- Thank you.

- But I do have a question for you.

How does a former All-Pro

tight end like yourself,

how do you hook up with

the second coming of Oprah?

Ryan's strength has always been

making others their best selves.

And I knew I needed that in my life.

I married my best friend.

Yeah, you got him, girl!

And the Flossy Posse

was there to witness.

We were ride or die.

But sometimes words go unsaid,

disagreements go unresolved.

You still talk on the phone,

keep up on social media, but...

a year goes by where you

don't see each other,

and that year turns to five,

and before you know it,

you're so busy trying

to get what you want,

that one day you

look up and find out

that the thing you love

the most, your crew,

the people who make you feel at

home no matter where you are,

they're gone.

- I know!

- Yeah, I heard you.

Well, no, I've got to go. I got...

Well, I have to ask the question

to get the answer. Okay. Bye.

Hey, sweetheart. Ryan.

Ryan, hey. Earth to Ryan.

Honey, listen, I know

that you are exhausted.

I got you running all over this

planet doing this book, but...

the Essence folks just called, and...


they want you to be the

keynote speaker this year.

Yeah. It's VIP, five-star

treatment all the way.

You just sign some books,

sign some autographs,

shake hands, you have heaps of praise...

And that's when you realize

that the Flossy Posse

needs to ride again.

- Tell them I'd be honored.

- Here we go

Well, I ain't got

nothing but a little soul

- A little tune to play...

- You can purchase Ryan Pierce's

latest New York Times Best Seller,

You Can Have It All

in New Orleans at Essence Fest.

Well, speaking about

You Can Have It All,

when are you two going to start a family?

- Oh, my God.
