New Jazz

You don't want no coffee, man? No.
I generally like to cleanse before I go all in.
That's a nice hat.
Thank you, man.
Yeah, I like the tone of purple.
It's nice.
- On my skin, right? - Yeah.
Thank you.
You want to split it? You want to split it? I just said that.
Well, thank you, man.
I really appreciate it.
Stand-up guy.
- Morning, fellas.
- Mm.
Uh, you guys still doing that thing I'm not supposed to know about for insurance purposes? Yes, we are.
This should help you out.
- Spa passes? - Mm-hmm.
"90-minute massage, a facial, sauna and a cold plunge.
" Senses gonna be lit.
Do I got to get naked for this shit? Nudity isn't required, I think.
Shi I don't know, nigga.
All right.
It's time.
Let's do it.
You want me to pay for that? Nigga, I already did that.
All right.
You want - Nah, I'm good.
- You sure? All right.
Have fun, y'all.
See you later, alligator.
So, I know people call them drugs, but I like to think of them as more spiritual expanding apparatuses.
Nah, nigga.
They drugs.
It's drugs.
Anyway, this one is called a Nepalese Spacecake, all right? The ingredients are harvested from, uh, monks in Denmark.
The consensus is that it's weed mixed with, uh, Nepalese hallucinogenic honey, but no one knows what's in them for sure for sure.
Now, they're banned in the U.
, right? And you don't want to get them off the black market, 'cause that's just a problem.
But I finally managed to track down a place that's legit.
Got a ton of recs on Reddit.
Oh, yeah.
That's a tourist.
Al? - Huh? - Don't be like him.
- Hey.
- What up? I'll just do one cup of hot coffee and a Nepalese Spacecake.
All right.
Keep the change.
Sorry, man.
That's not enough.
Well, I'll just let fate take care of it.
I'll pay for it, man.
Damn, just move.
Thank you, fate.
I'll have the same thing, man.
Thanks, man.
Your friend, you know, he kind of seems like he's seen the other side before, but, uh, are you sure you want this? My nigga, I had to watch the movie Cats sober with a bitch who lied to me about having some dank, okay? So I know extremes.
All right, man.
- There you go, man.
- Okay.
- Danke.
- Cats is underrated.
I'm just saying.
Talking to me like I ain't never taken drugs.
Ah, yes.
Here we are.
Yeah! Nepalese.
Wait, wait, wait, wait.
Before you do that, let the center be melted by the heat of the coffee.
Yeah, that's-that's All right.
Hey, Al, whatever happens, just know that I love you very much.
- Let's do this.

What now? Music and a stroll to the spa.
Take that.

Stereolab? All right, man.

'Cause I don't feel a damn thing.

I'm too high to not rap.

I'm sorry.
Uh, I'm sorry I interrupt Okay.
Damn, your hat looks dumb.
Hmm? I said your hat it's not working.
Well, I ain't ask your ass.
Hold on.
Let me let me ask you something.
You need a friend? I have friends.
Yeah, but, like, good ones, though.
Because a good friend would've told you that Chanel is for women.
Art is such a racket, no? Then why bring your ass to a museum if you don't like art? To read people, my love.
Why else? And look at the talent right in front of us.
Prime example.
Tragically Arab.
The style.
Like, ugh.
And then we have our hypebeast faggots, but, I mean, like, that's an Alexander Wang story.
You should look it up.
It's really touchy, you know.
People get really sensitive And then, of course, in front of us, we have our statuesque white Lizzo.
I mean, honestly, Lizzo's kind of like white Lizzo, for real, for real, because she's just so Why are you here? Because I had to be.
All right? Oh, really? School field trip? Hiding out? Are you someone to other people? I'm nobody, so you can leave me alone.
Well, everyone is nobody.
But are you a nobody to everyone? You're a rapper.
God, another one.
I hate rappers.
I most of all hate the way y'all say "pussy.
" Babe.
Look at me.
I mean, I kind of hate all rap music right now, though.
It's nothing personal.
I'm just - not a fan.
- Oh, that's good, 'cause I ain't a fan of your ass, so we even.
Babe, I don't care.
I promise you, I don't even give a fuck.
You know, the thing about rappers, though, is, like, y'all don't know anything about yourselves.
Like you have no idea where your money is.
And I-I watch y'all's interviews, you know? You're wearing all that designer.
And, I mean, you look cute.
It's no shade or whatever.
Do your thing.
But you still have no clue where your money is or where your money's going.
Well, that ain't me, a'ight? Huh.
So who owns your masters? What? Who owns your masters? The recording from which all the later copies of your music are made.
It's potentially the most lucrative part of making music, babe.
No one ever told you that? That's funny! Wow.
I came at the perfect time.
I swear, I'm an angel.
Hey, look, how I get out of here? You can start by taking off that hat.
Yo, I'm being real.
If you are "famous," that shit is making you stand out.
But wait here, though.
Don't go nowhere.
Become what you fear.
Less attitude.
Put it on.
Take my help and let's go.
I know just where to hide out.
Oh, shit, it's night? We only get a little bit of sunlight.
Amsterdam city of dreams.
Come on.
Keep up.
Hey, Lorraine.

Why the hat? Oh, this, uh I just, um I picked it up at a museum when I was ducking out from these kids that was chasing me.
- So I just - I love it.
It's very New Jazz.

Ah, you don't have to say.
It's fine.
It's your business.
You might have heard or read about my transgression.
You know, what I said about what I wanted to do to a Black guy Any Black guy when I was a younger man in London.
A friend of mine had been raped, and I acted out of anger.
I look back now, and it honestly frightens me.
I thought people knowing who I once was would make clear who I am, who I've become.
But, with all that being said I am sorry.
I apologize if I hurt people.
Yeah, well between you and me I still fuck with Taken.
Shit, man.
Look, it's good to know that you it's good to know that you don't hate Black people now.
- You know? - What? No, no, no, no.
I can't stand the lot of you.
Well, now I feel that way.
Because you tried to ruin my career.
Didn't succeed, mind you.
However I'm sure one day I will get over it.
But until then, we are mortal enemies.
I'll see you around, big lad.
All right, man.
Yeah, yeah.
Hold on, hold on, hold Wait.
But didn't you learn that you shouldn't say shit like that? Aye.
But I also learned that the best and worst part about being white is we don't have to learn anything if we don't want to.
