We shake like an earthquake

Down here in the city

Where the birds stay

- Ha, step in And I'm reppin' the A

- All right

Step in

And I'm reppin' the A

Yeah, we shake

Like an earthquake

Down here in the city

Where the birds stay

Ha, step in

And I'm reppin' the A

Step in

And I'm reppin' the A

They say New York don't sleep But

we don't do that here Either

I got a crush on a couple

Of Hawks cheerleaders


Yeah, that's the area I call


Yeah, that's the area I hold

Down in the city here we own

It's my Georgia home

I love my Georgia Dome

Can't leave Georgia alone



I didn't hear you.

Girl, I could bang pots and pans

outside your door

until my blood pressure

got the best of me,

and you still

wouldn't have answered.

Sorry. I was dancing.

Is that what that's called?

Looked more to me like you was possessed

by a chicken havin' a spaz attack.

- What's up, Ma?

- What's up is I'm headin' to work.

Oh! Don't forget to fill out that

application for the program.


I haven't

made up my mind yet.

Made up your mind?

Look, now that you're done with

Greenpeace and finding yourself,

you're either getting

a full-time job

or we agreed you'd

sign up for the program.

I don't think takin' blood is what I

wanna do for the rest of my life.

The course is only for three months.

You'll have your certificate.

Maggie makes $17 an hour.

That's good money.

I know, but I just

don't even like blood.

I don't like cleaning

hotel rooms either,

but I do it so that you girls can

have a better life than I had.

Listen, I wouldn't

be pushing you so hard,

but Maggie's pulling a lot of strings

to get you a job at the clinic.

She's not gonna be there

for much longer,

so it's kind of

now or never.

I hear ya, Mom.

Why does Tosha get to do

what she wants?

Baby, you just spent a whole

year abroad doing your thing,

so don't act like now I'm

the Wicked Witch of the West.

Well, it's just not fair.

Skyler, you're better suited

for working with your head.

Now, Tosha,

on the other hand,

she's a natural

at dancing, entertaining.

- That's her gift.

- Right.

Your sister barely graduated.

Thank God for her gift.

Thank God for that.

- Love you.

- Love you too.

What you starin' at, Sis?

- Did you see this?

- What is that?

First prize is a full

college scholarship.

I did see that.

But did you also see the

words, "USA Dance World?"

They are the best

of the best, girl.

But you say Pulsar

is number one.

- In the city.

- Why not the country?

No, you're right.

I mean, why not think big?

Especially if we have a dope

crew this year, Sky. Who knows?

You don't know who's

gonna make the crew?

Miss J makes everybody audition, even

if they were on the team last year.

So, you don't even know if

you're gonna make the crew, huh?

Girl, no, no.

I'll make the crew.

But she gonna make everybody try

out just to keep us humble, girl.

- You know her.

- Hey, Skyler.

- Hey. What's up, y'all?

- What's up?

You thinkin'

of tryin' out?

- Have you seen her dance?

- Wow. Thanks a lot.

No, no, no. I'm just sayin'.

- If she wants to try out, let her try out.

- Yeah. Why not?

'Cause Pulsar is not for beginners.

Thank you, Bryce.

Okay, come on.


I stopped by because

you left your phone on the

kitchen counter, airhead.

- I did?

- Yes.

- Ooh.

- Look, I gotta go. I gotta get to work.

So I'm-a see y'all later.

- All right. Bye.

- Peace. Later, Sky.

- Hey, I won't forget what you said.

- Okay, don't be...

All right, ladies.

Now make it sexy.

Here we go.
