Kicks

Synopsis: Fifteen-year-old Brandon longs for a pair of the freshest sneakers that money can buy, assuming that merely having them on his feet will help him escape the reality of being poor, neglected by the opposite sex and picked on by everyone - even his best friends. Working hard to get them, he soon finds that the titular shoes have instead made him a target after they are promptly snatched by Flaco, a local hood. Brandon goes on a mission to retrieve his stolen sneakers.

MAN:
Minus 15...

T-minus ten, nine,

eight, seven, six,

five, four, three,

two, one, zero.

BRANDON:
Sometimes,

I wish I had a spaceship.

(HEAVY BREATHING)

Just hang out in space

where it's quiet.

And no one can f*ck with me.

(INDISTINCT YELLING)

(GUNSHOT)

(BULLET CASING CLATTERS)

Even when I dream, I dream

about getting chased.

(RAPPING) I got the mack in my knapsack

Loungin' black, smoking sacks, up in acts

Sidekicks with my sidekicks,

rockin' fly kicks

I've never been in a real fight.

Mainly because

I've always been fast.

Mom says when

you're small, like me,

you gotta watch

out for yourself.

I ain't gonna lie, though.

Kids at school are

always fucking with me,

making fun of my shoes

and how broke I am.

Don't tell my mom 'cause I

don't want to see her upset.

I once heard this real

famous comic say that

deciding to wear flip-flops

is like saying, "I hope I

don't get chased today."

That's why I don't wear

fucking flip-flops.

I'm from the East Bay,

Richmond, California.

Cheez-Its. That's where you

need to start the story.

We eating Cheez-Its...

Those are my two best friends...

Chen-Rs'?

We eating Cheez-Its... You

don't even got Cheez-Its...

What up, man? You look like a

little girl coming down the street.

We do everything together.

Tie that shit up.

ALBERT:
Anyway, look, we

chillin' eating Cheez-Its.

Out of nowhere, she just starts

sucking my dick. I swear to God.

BRANDON:
That's Rico.

I put that online.

He don't take shit from nobody.

Like, all he do is

just sit around and smoke.

But he's still ripped.

Guys don't f*ck with him.

But girls do.

He can't give it to

you like I can, baby!

That's Albert.

You fuckin' around.

ALBERT:
I'm going to leave.

BRANDON:
All he do

is talk about pussy.

But! don't think

he ever seen one.

He says he's some

kind of R&B genius.

(RAPPING) All you got to do

Hey, bro... Hey, run

that shit back one time.

Put that auto-tune

all the way up...

Bitch, shut the f*ck up! Can't

you see me in the studio?

Nigga, f*ck you.

You in a motherfucking

closet with your fat ass.

BRANDON:

The greatest of all time.

Hey, bro.

Pussy Mix Tape, bro.

Hottest shit out.

Volume Four, bro.

Man, don't nobody want

to buy my shit, bruh.

BRANDON:
'Cause you wack.

Man, f*ck you.

I'ma make it, nigga.

Every day we do the same shit.

RICO:
I don't know, man.

Red Ones...

We talk about the same shit.

ALBERT:
They're not just freakin' shoes.

Those are J's.

You know how much head I

would get if I had...

Albert's got the 6's.

Rico's got the 3's.

(BEAT-BOXING)

Them 11's, though'?

That's the shit right there.

ALBERT:
Fresh feet equals...

RICO:
Respect, nigga.

Balls-deep, nigga.

Right?

You know it.

You don't know.

Fresh feet equals balls-deep.

I knew that.

(RAPPING) Quiet 'cause they

'bout it 'Cause it's too loud

(BOTH EXCLAIMING)

You know what, I'm rapping now

I'ma pass it to my nigga B

You're up.

All right...

(BEAT-BOXING)

What the f*ck?

ALBERT:
Come on, man.

(RAPPING) Said nothing like the rest,

nigga Sicka then the next nigga

The Bay ain't behind me

'cause I keep it on my chest

BRANDON:
Sometimes, it fee!

Like everybody cooler than me.

You're supposed to push me next.

No.

Hey, you trying to get faded, B?

You got a light?

Yeah.

Maybe because I'm small...

Get the f*ck out of here!

I don't know.

RICO:
You see

my friend over there?

That one over there.

(WOMAN LAUGHS) What you laughing for?

Go talk to him.

Like, in school,

can't play pick up,

can't take a piss,

can't pull no girls...

Boo, nigga.

Can I help you?
