The Cost of Business


Previously on Raising Kanan
You ask Raq about me yet?
My mom don't want me
messing with you, man.
This is where my cousin
wants to meet you.
You're helping me, Juliana.
You let me know when I can help you.
I'm building up my business, Joaquin.
I'm about to be the only game in town.
No supply, losin'
corners. Raq gonna fold.
It's a one-time offer.
Pass up on it now, and

You about to run this shit, baby.

It's just made up.
Famous ain't in that life.
Yeah, but you are.
[LIL' ROB] Put some testers out, man.
Not that much, maybe about 20 vials,
just to see what the
feedback was looking like.
[MARVIN] Feedback's real
shitty, niggas, real shitty.
It's damn near impossible to
kill a motherfucker with crack,
but not your shit. Your
shit done broke all the rules.
[JUKEBOX] I got this dance tonight.
- [RAQ] Who you going with?

[GROWN KANAN] Used to be this
old church lady babysat me.
Always used to say,
"God never gives you
more than you can bear."
But that's just what church folks say
when fucked-up shit happens.

Because truth is, there's
shit a nigga can't bear,
shit you ain't never gonna get past,
and it changes you forever
in ways you can't never change back.

[MOURNER] Linda told
me it was her heart,
some sort of congenital defect.

[LINDA] Thank you.
Thank you.
Excuse me.
you shouldn't be here.
I'm sorry.
- My cousin's just trying to pay her respects.
- We're gonna go.
- Both of them out.
- [MAN] Of course.

She loved your daughter, you know.

Come on, man, let's go home.
- I'll catch up with you later.
- I'm going with you, then.
I got to be dolo on this, Kanan.
You sure?


For you.

And for every nigga like you.

When the police get here, you tell them
there's some tools and
some other shit missing,
that it must've been a robbery.
- You a'ight?

Third body we found in the last day.
He was holding one of these.
You know it ain't the
coke that kills them.
It's the fucked-up poison
they use to step on it.
We should get the word out
about this to all the shelters,
hospitals, and intake centers.
Look, before you start your
personal just-say-no talk,
you got to understand that
every crackhead on the Southside
is gonna be tearing the block apart
trying to cop them blue caps.
If it's killing fools, that
means it's hitting hard.
For grimy motherfuckers like that,
the bad shit is the good shit.
Overdose ain't our problem anyways.
This is what we call a victimless crime.
That's the victim, right there.
This is a murder. Whoever's
selling this rock is killing people.
Could track back to Raquel Thomas.
Nah, Raq know better
than to put out bad shit.
Bad shit bring police,
police bad for business.
You just said the bad
shit is the good shit.
You know, maybe she's
trying to drum up business.
Burke, it ain't Raq,
and it ain't Unique.
They've been doing this too long
to make a rookie mistake like that.
How many more bodies we
gonna let drop up here
without doing anything about it?
I'm not gonna get my ass torn
apart by the captain again.
All right, Detective,
we'll rattle a few cages,
see what's up.
What's today's mathematics?
[LOU-LOU] We gonna top out at five.
- For the whole day?
- For the whole day
- and from every corner we still holding.
We ain't got enough product to last,
so I'm selling out all our
work as soon as we set up shop.
[MARVIN] But we're
gettin' killed out there.
We need a new supply,
or might as well shut
- the whole shit down.
- He right.
Short money like this
ain't worth the risk.
Also, heard some blue
caps just hit the street.
It laying niggas out, killing them.
Now the whole hood fiendin' for 'em.
Could be 'Nique.
Nah, 'Nique know bodies bring trouble.
And now that he's buying up
his shit and our shit from Deen,
the last thing he wants
is his corners get rolled.
You hear anything?
Um, I heard some nigga
from the Boogie Down
tryin' their new shit out here.
Where you hear that at?
From the street, nigga.
Unlike you, I ain't
always wearing headphones.
How about deodorant?
You never wearing that.
And you should, nigga.
I got a natural musk,
nigga, how a real man smell,
but you wouldn't know
nothing about that.
You right. I wouldn't
know nothing about that.
I'm too busy smelling good out here.
What you wear, Secret?
The same shit she wearing?
We got too much happening
at Baisley right now
to have the police sniffing around.
Figure out who cooking them blue caps
and tell them to take
that shit somewhere else,
and if they got a problem with that,
you give them a bigger problem.
On it.
All right.
I need you to walk me through
Unique pressing up on you again.
I told you everything already.
Then tell me everything again.
'Nique wouldn't step to you
like that unless he thought
there was some sort of
chance you might flip.
He know something
about you I don't, Lou?
I can't believe you'd even say
some shit like that out loud.
'Nique don't know nothing about me, Raq,
'cause if he did,
he'd know that when they
put me in the ground,
I'm gonna be flying the same
fucking flag I been flying,
because I don't flip,
for nobody or nothing,
and you know this.
That's what I'm talkin' 'bout.
Raq's stink all over this shit, man.
All her corners drying up, so
now she want these bodies to drop
so she get police out here
to fuck with my business, man.
That's not what I heard.
- I heard she had some
- Fuck what you heard, Worrell!
You heard what I just said, nigga!
Man, tell our peoples upstate
it's time to tool the fuck up, man.
About to get real smoky out here.
Yo, Ricardo, come clean this shit up!
I'm taking five.
Still wanna take me the wrong way ♪
So now it's nothing but the
rhyme and the beat playin' ♪
I've been clean for
over a month, Detect,
on my straight and narrow.
As in washing behind your ears
and scrubbing in between your toes?
I know you ain't
saying you off the pipe.
Shame on you knocking
a nigga 12 step, Detect.
You 'posed to be encouraging
and supportive and shit.
Blue caps, Sam. What do you know?
And here's some encouragement, nigga.

Ebony and ivory police
up in this motherfucker?
Who's she?
[HOWARD] She's my partner.
Don't worry about
her. You talking to me.

It's some young boys pushing
them blue caps on the block.
They not from the Southside.
I heard they from
Queensbridge or some shit.
You got names on any of them?
- You got more money, Hojak?
Hojak. Love it.

Lil' Rob.
He been favoring them titties
over at Medallius recently.
Y'all punk-ass police got a
nigga all anxious and shit.
Now I got to go smoke something.
Get the fuck outta here.
Calm my damn nerves down.
See what y'all done did?
Hey, yo.
They look the other way ♪
And then he keeps on biting ♪
On the real ♪
It's ridiculous ♪
What's up, man? Why you
paging me, like, 20 times?
Yo, our shit all buttoned up, right?
I mean, them blue caps can't
be tracked back to you and me?
- Police?
- Your moms.
She want me to find them niggas
who been moving that shit and move them.
We used the niggas from Queensbridge.
We sold outside the hood.
And then the bad shit we
put out was only, like,
20 testers in ten minutes.
[SCOFFS] She finds out everything.

I don't think she kill her own son,
but I know for sure she kill me.
And your uncle Lou will only be too
happy to pull that fucking trigger.


All right, Juliana,
call your cousin just like we planned.


Everybody's talking
all this stuff about me ♪
Why don't they just let me live? ♪
- Tell me why ♪
- Where's Lil' Rob?

All right, let me get at those.
That's my prerogative ♪
Lil' Rob.
Who the fuck wants to know, nigga?
You know who the fuck I am police.
Got a warrant for your arrest.
- What the For what?
- For murder.
Mur What the fuck
y'all talking about, man?
Yo, I ain't do nothing!
Then you ain't got
nothing to worry about.
Fucking kidding me, man.
This is some fucking bullshit, nigga.

Let me see that fucking warrant, huh?
- Tell me who the fuck I murdered.
- Blue caps, nigga.
You put them out, people
died. Them bodies on you.
- Man, that wasn't me, man.
- That's bullshit.
We got witnesses that saw
you passing that shit out.
How many counts on that
warrant for Lil' Rob here?
Six, no seven.
Yeah, I hope you like dick, nigga,
'cause you about to be swimming
in it for the rest of your life.
All right, wait, man.
Fuck that, man. Wait!
It was this Southside nigga, Kanan, man.
- Kanan Stark?
- Yeah. Them blue caps, that's all him.
Nigga cooked them and
put them out on the block.
Kanan 15 years old.
There's an age limit to slangin' now?
So you working for a kid in high school?
You know who this nigga moms is, man?
Trust me, this nigga know
his way around Triple-B, man.
What, you're letting' me go?
What about that fucking warrant?
- Get the fuck out of here.
- Bitch-ass pig. Fuck you, nigga.
So let's go pick up Kanan Stark.
Let me do some solo recon
first, see what I find out.
You know, you doing all this solo recon
kind of undermines our
so-called partnership.

You spook the natives, Burke.

[MAN] Make it good, baby. Make it good.
Ha ha! Hey, there we
go! That ain't good.
That ain't good, but, you know,
we close, we close, we close.
You ain't gonna take nothing.
You ain't gonna take
Another busy day at the office, huh?
Yeah, you know how we do.
Need to holler at Crown
- Yo. Yo.
- Yo?
Boss wants us out.
He ain't the boss.
[LOU-LOU] I am what I say I am, nigga.
Everybody out.

- [MAN] Bullshit, man.
[CROWN] Catch you later.
Yeah, when she out of high school.
- Yo.
- It's a joke.
What's up?
This is Andre Barnes, my attorney.
He gonna explain the new
arrangement between me and you.
What new arrangement?
[BARNES] My client is gonna
do a debt-to-equity swap,
converting his significant loans to you
into a partnership stake in the company.
He's willing to offer you a 50/50 split,
which I'm sure you'll agree
is a very generous valuation.

What the hell is he talking about, Lou?
You're gonna give me half
of Bulletproof, Crown.
- Why the fuck would I do that?
- Because
the money I fronted you
just went from a loan
to an investment, my nigga.
We partners now.
Please, sit down.
- Thank you.
- Yo, we got two singles dropping next quarter.
That's where you getting
your money, plus interest.
Crown about to make you whole, nigga.
- Just relax.
- I ain't no bank, Crown.
When shit come due, it's due.
And your shit's past due.
Way I see it, we already been partners.
The paperwork just makes it official.

Paperwork need to be negotiated,
talked about, figure
something something else
You need leverage to negotiate.
And you don't got shit, nigga.

one way or the other
something of yours
about to be on that paper



[NICOLE] That I shared between us ♪
When our love is cozy
but I need so much more ♪
It just intensifies my wants ♪
To have a love that endures ♪
- Oh ♪
'Cause every time I close my eyes ♪
I think of you ♪
No matter what the season is ♪
I still love you ♪
With all my heart ♪
And I wanna be with you ♪
Wherever you are ♪
[OVER SPEAKER] Pull over.
This motherfucker.
- You gonna follow me.
- I got shit to do.
You better follow me right now,
or I'm gonna arrest Kanan
on six counts of murder.
And I got all the evidence I need, Raq.
[RAQ] Who told you all that?
[HOWARD] Some Queensbridge
nigga named Lil' Rob.
Now look, I'ma do my
best to bury this shit,
but Kanan is out there getting into it,
and we both know how that story ends.
Trying to play daddy, Detective?
I'm not playing.
I need to get with the boy, Raq.
Meet him, know him, tell him who I am.
But he ain't gonna believe
me if I just roll up
and drop this shit on
him. He'll think I'm crazy.
I need you to smooth the road for me.
You think I'd ever do that shit for you,
you really are crazy, nigga.
He's my son. I'm his father.
- It's the right thing to do.
Right thing to do?
This from the undercover
who pushed up on me
when I was 16 years old.
Ah, shit. You said you were 17.
Yeah, well, I also said
I graduated high school.
But it never seemed to bother you
that I was carrying
around a fucking book
on geometry every day.
Well, shit, Def Con
was a grown man, too.
You ain't had no problem
when he was hitting them skins
when you were 16.
Def Con was left-handed.
He ain't fuck with no girls.
I was his cover.
Paid me to keep up appearances.
That's why he didn't say
shit when Kanan was born.
It was better for him that everybody
else thought the baby was his.
[SCOFFS] Shit.
Def Con was a fucking fairy?
And still ten times the
nigga you'll ever be.
I need to talk to my son, Raq.
And you gonna make that happen,
or I'm gonna put the word out
on the block that he's a cop's kid.
And you would do that to the
boy that you claim is your son?
The street will eat
him alive on that shit.
You might as well put a bullet
in his head your damn self.
Nah, Kanan'll be all right.
I'll make sure of that.
But the hood gonna call you
a snitch for fucking a cop.
I ain't gonna have this
conversation with you again.
From here on out, the only
person I'm talking to is Kanan.
And that shit better
happen with the quickness.
I'm done waiting.
And, oh,
if you and one of your little punk-ass
brothers try to get smart on me,
I'm shooting first,
asking questions last.


I need you to pick up that
dry cleaning up in Harlem
I mentioned a while back.

Kanan Elijah Stark,
get your ass down here!
Thought I raised you different.
Thought you were a
different person, Kanan.
You know, I keep saying
the same shit over
and over again to you,
but you don't hear me,
or maybe you hearing me,
you just don't give a
fuck. Which is it, huh?
Which is it?
I'm trying to show you
you should believe in me,
- that I can do this.
You got people dead all
over behind your shit.
Why the fuck would I
ever believe in you?
I found a spot near the
Van Wyck Expressway, Ma.
We was doing everything right.
- We was doing good
- And by "we",
you talk about you
and your uncle Marvin.
You want to know why he
ain't running his own shit,
why he did that bid when
you and Juke was babies?
He was using.
He turned into a damn junkie
and started selling dope out his crib,
which, in this shit, is
a cardinal fucking sin.
When the police busted down his door,
this fool was so high,
he offered to sell
them a fucking quarter.
And that's the motherfucker
you done hitched your wagon to.
That's the nigga that
you in business with.
I'm not a different person, Ma.
I'm exactly who I'm supposed
to be, matter of fact.
You gonna get mad at
somebody, you gonna blame them,
don't blame Uncle Marvin,
and don't blame me
neither. Blame yourself,
'cause I'm exactly what you made me.
You want to talk about blame, boy?
You want to talk about blame?
All you've done so far is give
me mess after mess to clean up.
This shit, Buck Twenty, D-Wiz,
bodies everywhere, all
'cause of your shit.
You don't know shit,
Kanan. You just don't.

Yeah, I killed him.
I took out D-Wiz to save you.
Look at me.
Look at me!
They were coming 'Nique,
Buck Twenty's people.
They wanted payback, and
they wasn't gonna settle
until somebody fell for
what y'all boys did.
And I wasn't gonna let 'em kill you,
so it had to be your friend.
Somebody had to go.
I did what I had to do to protect you.
So you tell me, Kanan
who's to blame for D-Wiz,
me or you?




- [WOMAN] How you doing?
- [UNIQUE] All right.

My man, car's right out front.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.


[DOORMAN] May I help you, sir?
Yeah, my boy's ride
I left something in it. Can I get in?

Only take a minute.
Car's parked right out front.

Be right back.


Yo, we working the weekend, fellas.
Shit needs to get done.
Y'all take a break.
Come on, Dumb DMC, come on.
How long y'all been
putting in this work today?
Yo, a few hours, you know.
In and I'm knocking it down.
What's the unit underneath looking like?
Yo, we close. You know,
just fine-tuning some shit.
You know, probably a few
more days, it's gonna be ripe,
add a little stucco Ah!
Yo, man, y'all was shutting me out.
Had me knocking down
walls, cleaning out toilets.
That's not me. That's not what I do.
Nah, what you do is fuck
up everything you touch!
What you do is get Kanan caught
up in some fucked-up stupidness
that's killing niggas
up and down the block.
Yo, I'm a gangsta. I do gangsta shit.
No, you do dumb shit, nigga.
The boy had a hell of an idea.
Kanan's smart.
Figured out how to serve them crackers
without leaving the hood,
and we're making that money
money that I was sliding back into
the family business, by the way.
This wasn't no freelance shit.
I can't trust you.
I can't count on you for shit, Marvin.
And now you got bodies on my son.
I can't fuck with you no more.
Bring whatever work you
got left over to Lou-Lou's.
I don't ever want to talk
to you or ever see you again.

- Look, Raq
- [RAQ] I don't care.
Yo, I can I can I can do better.
Get the fuck out my sight.

All right.

Laverne, you you have to leave.
You have to leave now. I'm
We didn't know

[LINDA] Honey, the
police are on their way.
Oh, my God. Oh, my God.
What are you doing here?
- Linda, calm down! Calm down!
- No! No! No, no, no!
[LINDA] No, she's a murderer!
She killed our daughter!
No! No! Stop! Let go!
[JAMES] Laverne, you need to leave.
Here! Here, take this! Take this!
- Take that back to your ghetto!
- [JAMES] Linda, stop!
We had to lie!
We had to lie about how she
died to our closest friends
- and family
- Laverne, please.
- to her grandparents!
- Linda, stop.
We couldn't tell them that Nicole died
from the drugs she got from you!
We couldn't have the people
who loved our daughter
remember her that way!
Don't you see what
happened? You did this!
- Don't move!
- You did this!
- Let me see your hands!
- [JAMES] Please, Linda, stop.
[OFFICER] Hands up!
- [JAMES] Linda, Linda.
- [LINDA] Oh, my God

Hey, wait, wait, wait. What are
you doing, man? Where's Davina at?
Hey! Hey! [SLAPS CAR]
I asked you a question.
Where Davina and Tonisha Harrison?
Do I need to call the police?
and took the children.
Their mother died.
Apparently she passed a month ago,
but they only identified her this week.
You know where they taking them?
Foster care, I'm sure.
Look, I know this is hard on you,
but it's better this way.
They couldn't be here on their own.
I'm sorry.
Look who in the industry now.
Yo, I'm in a gang of industries.
Damn near Jamaican now.
We need to sit down and really
figure out how we launching Famous.
Launching Famous? What
are you, an astronaut now?
You know what I'm talking about, Lou.
I need help.
I mean, I can't do all
this shit on my own.
You think Crown getting him
on with Stretch and Bobbito?
Hell, no.
That was all me. [CHUCKLES]
We need to think about mix tapes.
Maybe a mall tour.
White girls in Jersey love
them some cute Puerto Rocks.
But we got to be smart,
because I'm not trying
to have my little brother
be no fucking one-hit wonder.
Don't you need one hit
to be a one-hit wonder?
You own half this
fucking label now, Lou.
You half responsible
for my brother's career,
and all you got's jokes?
Didn't we just knock boots,
just bust a fat nut?
You want to talk about
some dumb mall tour.
It's never enough, is it?
When have I ever done
enough or made enough
for you to just be satisfied enough
to, I don't know, maybe shut the fuck up
just for one minute, hmm?
See, that's the difference
between me and your sorry ass!
I'm never satisfied.
[VOICE ON RADIO] Twenty-one
Adam, go to nine.
Twenty-one Adam on nine.
detective over at the 117,

Copy that.
This ones got a rabbi in the 117,
says to kick her loose.
Pull over up here.
This is your stop.
Get out. Let's go.
Looks like you got some
friends in high places.
Some detective out in
Queens flagged you
- told us to let you go.
Guess you owe him one.
Fuck. Oh, fuck, yeah.

Oh! Fuck!
- Yo, uh
- Whew.
let me get that money now.
Oh, my God.
I call and page you,
like, a thousand times,
and you never respond.
And you show up here out of
the blue, fuck me over my desk,
and as soon as you're
done, you ask me for money?
Wow. Really, Marvin?
[SCOFFS] Even for you, that's fucked up.
I fronted you the shit.
You owe me money. That's how it work.
Yeah, what did you front me, Marvin?
Settling up my old business, Toni.
You old business.
What business exactly?
What-what business?
Why do I owe you money?
[MARVIN] Look, I ain't even
fucking around with you no more.
You got the money or not?
Maybe. Maybe I have it,
but you're gonna have
to tell me what it's for.
You know what? Fuck this.
Just when I couldn't feel any worse
about this fucking day,
I had to run up into you.
- Marvin.
- Ain't no pussy worth this bullshit.
Come on, Marvin. Marvin!
Just tell me what I
owe you the money for.
You a crazy bitch, you know that?
Tell me, and I will give it to you.
Yo, kiss my ass, Toni.
Marvin! Marvin!
Fucking Jesus Christ.

We got exactly dick out
of your friend there.
Some of us got more dick than others.
He sells drugs, okay? I promise you.
Him and his entire family
are dealers in Queens.
Yeah, he's so big-time,
he's asking you for money.
I can't go to jail.
We got you on two counts of possession
with intent to distribute, Toni.
You gonna be one of those lucky folks
who bypasses jail and
goes straight to prison.
That is, unless you get
us someone bigger than you.

Gabriel won't be missed.
Any thoughts on who might have done it?
Fuck Gabriel.
Look, I need you to open
this pipeline, Joaquin.
I can't keep waiting for
whatever it is you're waiting for.
I already lost my spots in the
city. Now I'm losing corners.
That doesn't sound like someone
whose business is growing.
[CHUCKLES] Don't get it twisted.
I may be dropping a
battle here and there,
but I got this war on lock.
You get me work,
it's about to be Desert
Storm up in this motherfucker.
Does your Detective Howard
know about your Desert Storm?
we've been following you.
You seemed really upset
after your conversation with
him at the bridge in Queens.

[MAN] You got that?

All right, niggas, listen up.
This ain't just a hit.
This ain't just a drive-by.
This is a motherfucking message.
Make sure that shit is loud and clear.

You show me a hustler who ain't
got some cop working for him,
and I'll show you a nigga
with a room at Rikers
already bought and paid for.
Well, what is it that you do exactly?
I'm changing the fucking game.

I put that bullet in Gabriel's head.
Juliana didn't tell you that, did she?
I dropped that motherfucker
where he stood.
I did that for your cousin,
because I take care of
those who take care of me.
So you think I'm blasting
Gabriel in the morning
and snitching to
five-O in the afternoon?

I need to know that this Detective
Howard is not a problem

that your relationship
with him is as you say it is.

Then I need to understand what this
changing the game
you keep talking about truly means.
Right now it sounds like one
of your brother's songs
not a business plan.
And once I do that, we're good?

Then we're about to be good.

[JUKEBOX] Just heard about Davina.
Queens keep on takin' it.
- That's not how the song goes.
Fuck that song.
This what killed Nicole.
She took it out of my backpack
smoked that shit

and it killed her.

Juke, I

Actually, I don't even know what to say.

It's not your fault, Kanan.

I don't even think I can blame myself.

[SCOFFS] It's this place, Kanan.

It's this place and this
fucked-up life we're living here.

Hell, no.


You know what time it is.
[RAQ] You on deck, Lou.
Batter up, nigga.
Are we really sure? ♪
Can a love that lasted ♪
For so long still endure? ♪
- I'm off tonight, Raq.
- Do I really care? ♪
Hey, hey ♪
Let's talk about the ♪





Why ♪

Light that bitch up!


What the fuck is that?

Yeah, motherfucker.
We out!






Lou, where the fuck you at?
[GROWN KANAN] Everything's got a price.
Oh, shit.
[GROWN KANAN] Sometime that
shit is more than we can pay.
Lou! Come on, Lou, I got you.
[GROWN KANAN] More than we can bear.

[GROWN KANAN] But if you
want to do this shit,
if you want a seat at this table,
you got to be willing to
give up more than everything.

Cool, Lou-Lou?
to be willing to give up
not only the life you got
Come on, man.
[GROWN KANAN] but the
life you ain't even lived yet.
Stay with me, man. [BREATHING HEAVILY]
Come on, Lou, stay with me.
[GROWN KANAN] It's the
cost of doing business.
And one way or the other,
no matter who you are,
everybody got to pay it.
Somebody help.
Call an ambulance!
- Somebody help.
Somebody help me!
