Rap Sh!t (2022) s02e08 Episode Script

Under Construction

So, Gat, how stressful is it
being a Black man in the music industry?
Super stressful, man.
I mean, personally, I feel like
we all got to unlearn this, uh,
toxic masculinity
that's been passed down to us
through this, uh, g-generational
trauma, you know?
You know, add that with
the pressures of this industry,
it could push you to do some shit.
So is that what inspired
your new single,
which is doing well, by the
way, congratulations on that.
Thank you, man. I appreciate that, G.
Shit, honestly, writing
this song saved my life.
You know, after losing one friend,
almost losing another,
I just really felt like
a, a responsibility
to promote this mental health shit.
What makes you put
Reina Reign on that song?
- Fuck you mean? Why not?
- Whoa, whoa
Look, I'm just sayin', man,
th-that right there is the problem.
Look, if we actually came together,
stop focusing on our differences,
you gon' see we got a lot more in common
than we have in uncommon.
Is there anything else
you want to say to the people?
Go get help. I mean, this
message is for, for everybody.
Niggas, females, uh, theys, thems.
Just, all y'all just stop.
Get some help.
I'm sorry, man. Just give me a second.
Hey, Pardi.
- Boom, what up, fool?
- What's up, bro?
- How are you, baby?
- I'm good. I'm good.
Hey, you already know,
- it's the man who needs no introduction.
- Aw, man.
- He's worked with Kanye.
- Stop it.
- He's worked with Cardi.
- Stop it.
- Hey.
- He's worked with Meg.
It is so nice to meet you.
- Oh, my God.
- Likewise, likewise.
You've written all my favorite songs.
- It's a pleasure to meet you, for real.
No, likewise. The pleasure's mine.
Look, I've been hearing
nothing but great things
from both of y'all.
You know what I'm sayin'?
Buzzing around the city and whatnot.
- Bzzz.
You got the girls lookin' good.
Grab a seat. Let's get comfortable.
- SHAWNA: Alright, cool.
- MIA: Okay.
Let's get to it.
So Pardi is a dude that you go to
when you need a hit.
And right now,
Shawna and Mia are, like, a hit away
from taking over, so.
- Facts.
- PARDISON: I'm hip
to y'all movement and whatnot.
My process, though,
I like to really tap in with the artists
that I'm working with.
I like to get to know y'all, you know,
pick y'all brain a little bit.
So, um, tell me about yourselves.
What's going on in y'all world?
Too much. Where do I start?
Um, me and my baby daddy,
Lamont, he our producer.
Um, he did both our songs.
Um, first, we started out beefing,
like, boom, boom, boom, like, real bad.
Then we started working together.
Then we finally started
co-parenting, like, for real, for real.
Then he started fucking with
this bitch that we both know.
- Nah.
- MIA: So then I started fucking
with a nigga that we both know.
And you know, I really don't remember
who started it first,
- but yeah.
- Yeah.
Like classic chicken
and the egg situation.
You know? Who came first?
PARDISON: Uh, let me get this right.
Y'all was over there mixing up, like,
the business and the
pleasure and y'all just,
y'all splitting more than just
the publishing at that crib.
- MIA: Money. (CHUCKLES)
Oh, my God.
But you know what? Fuck these niggas.
Okay? I'm betting on me, okay?
- SHAWNA: Mm. Mm!
- MIA: And I'm here with Pardison Fontaine.
- Who is Lamont?
- Uh, that's a fact.
We definitely gon' get y'all a hit.
What about you? What's
going on in your world?
- Me?
- Yeah.
- Me?
- Yeah, you.
I guess I'm the only one left.
Yeah. What's going on in Scam Town?
- Scam Town?
- Oh, she's a scammer?
- Yeah.
Yeah. Tell him. Yeah.
You know what? Honestly,
the song shouldn't be about me.
Fuck my life for r Yeah, just
Let's talk about so
anything else, please.
FRANCOIS: Yeah, like,
right now, we're working on this
anti-hero campaign.
- We're gonna get 'em mugshots.
FRANCOIS: We think we're
gonna do, like, a smash-and-grab
and then leak the security footage.
You know, get a lot
of looks off the shit.
We had that idea?
FRANCOIS: Yeah. I forgot to tell you.
I don't think that's the
type of smash-and-grab
people really want to see them do.
Sound like you got your
work cut out for you, dawg.
I ain't gon' hold you.
But listen, let me play some music.
I feel like it'll be perfect for y'all.

ALEX: Okay, here is
what Red Bull is offering.
A true partnership
as you develop your brand.
Full creative control.
And you get to own your own masters.
This is what I've been looking for.
CHASTITY: And they everywhere.
Sports, live events.

You know, how much we talking?
Well, I'm gonna regroup my team,
and I'ma get back at you with specifics.
So you can't give us, like, a range?
Like, a, a ballpark.
We like long game. Right?
So we want to establish
a strong foundation
right out the gate.
Our plan is to invest
heavily into your vision.
So, for instance, we love the stuff
you did with that producer Lamont.
- ALEX: We have some ideas
about doing an EP with him.
But, you know, it's, uh
We know that
your main audience is women.
- Mm-hmm.
- So we're gonna market to them.
Come on, you been
sayin' fuck these niggas.
And we been talking
about female empowerment.
Shawna and Mia taking over
the male-dominated rap game.
ALEX: Mm-hmm.
Yeah, we've been talking
about female empowerment?
- Yeah, you?
- You've been talkin' about it?
- Mm. Mm-hmm.
Okay. What's female empowerment to you?
You know, like everything
- SHAWNA: Yeah. Mm.
- Female manager, female A&R,
engineers, transpo,
everything. Security.
I just think that females
should take over the game
and just be dominant.
We should all come as one.
Okay. When do you think we're
gonna hear back from the label?
We have lunch tomorrow,
so I'm gonna push for an answer.
- SHAWNA: Mm-hmm.
- And probably get back to you
with an offer by next week.
- Okay.
- CHASTITY: Well, Alex,
I'ma discuss it with the girls
- and, uh, we'll be in touch.
- SHAWNA: Mm-hmm.
Well, ladies, it was a pleasure,
and I look forward
to keep talking to you.
It was amazing. Thank
you. Thank you, Alex.
- Thank you so much.
- ALEX: You're so welcome.

An offer for what, some wings?

They talking about
full creative control.
- Like, real collaboration.
They're about female
empowerment over there.
I'm gonna be honest with you.
You take that deal
- there's no Pardi record.
You 'bout to hold
that shit hostage, nigga?
Be fuckin' for real, Francois.
I'm saying y'all need
to trust in the plan
that I laid out for y'all!
Chastity is not a fucking part
of that goddamn plan, Shawna!
Like, this ain't the fuckin'
little leagues anymore.
- I know.
- Y'all need real management.
- I know.
- Real shit.

Why he want us to get rid

ultimatum to give us.
It's not even fair.
Look, I like the Red Bull deal.
I like Alex. I want to work with her.
We was in the meeting,
and I felt really seen,
I felt really heard.
Like, she really understands
what we're trying to do.
I don't want to do that
to Chastity either.
But if we get rid of that Pardi record,
they gon' have to come with a budget.
- Yeah.
- An advance or something.
Okay? Every time I kept
asking her about some money,

leaving now, and I'm like,
"Is that Kirk?" (LAUGHS)
"Let me go chop it up

I was actually wondering
if we can discuss
the offer that's on the table.
I know if you want something done,
you got to go straight to the source.
I didn't realize it was
a party of three.
- I'm sorry.
- ALEX: No, it's not.
(WHISPERING) I'm so sorry.
Hey, look, on some real shit,
I'm just trying to give you the
best chance at working with us.
Between me and you,
we got another offer,
and it's one of the kinds
that's hard to say no to.
And the girls are excited,
but I think Red Bull is
the best opportunity for them.
If we can make this swift
and make the deal undeniable,
I can make this happen.
I hear that.
Alex has been sharing with me,
and I do have some reservations.
Breaking a new act is a huge expense.
And these are really specific
needs we're talking
But you get a higher reward.
Female artists have
the most loyal fan base,
the gays and the girls.
If ain't nobody else booking you,
the girls and gays are gonna
have you booked somewhere.
She one of 'em. She know!
Look, it's about seven
or eight Prides a year,
and they love Red Bull.
Shit. There go your money right there.
It's a win-win, Kirk.
We are not afraid to work hard.
We've been doing it,
and we're gonna continue to do so.
Look how far we got with just us.
Imagine what we can do
with a little bit of help.

This is how you make a moment.

I'ma let you watch that, but, Shawna,

Like, he been a cornball.
MAN: (OVER PHONE) You talkin' 'bout Gat?
Man, he stay coked out at the function.
We gotta keep showing people
the type of people
that these niggas are.
I'm telling you, the truth
always gon' come to light.
Y'all swear, y'all care
about women so much
until we speak up.
Shawna, fuck these niggas for real.
Air all they asses out.
Bitch, this is what
I'm talking 'bout. Y

All I'm gonna say is this:

Mia, Mia, Mia. Francois just said to me
that we have to drop
the Pardi track tonight.
- It's not even a question.
- Oh, shit.
For real.
Oh, wait, Chastity.
- Go crazy. Yeah, fuck it up.
- NELLY: Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh!
Look, I thought about it,
and we can't do it.
Chastity been there since the beginning.
- Before niggas was promising us shit,
like, she was holding us down.
crazy. Fuck it up, friend.
What's the point of winning
if you ain't doing it
with your people?
But Francois is my people, too.
What the fuck is your problem?
Do you know how embarrassing that was?
- This is my job.
- Look.
This shit is important to me.
I needed to make a move.
So I just went to the person
who I know can make shit happen.
Are you insane?
Chastity, I had the whole
company on board and excited
about working with Mia and
Shawna in less than a month.
And then you made me look like an idiot.
You completely undermine me.
Clearly, you and I work differently.
I don't think this is gon' work
professionally or otherwise.
Man, do what you gotta do.
- Lulu alright?
- LAMONT: Yep.
Tiff just in there icing her eye.
What's up with you instigating fights
between Melissa and her friends?
- I didn't
- Mia, that's what you been doing.
Okay, I did not do that.
Why would I do that?
Look, I don't want
to fight with you, okay?
I just want to have a good relationship.
I mean, we work good together.
And I miss you.
You miss me, big dawg?
Yes, I miss you.
I forgot to tell you. Red Bull
they want to do a deal with us,
and they want to make you
a producer in the deal.
You get paid, and we can work together.
Congratulations but I'm good.
Lamont, this is a record deal.
Like a real record deal.
I would rather just get it on my own.
- Lamont
- For real.
I've played so many
of your games already.
We not kids no more.
This shit, all that ghetto
Fuck, I ain't with that.
That's not for me.
But good luck with
whatever you got going on.
Bye, Mia.
SHAWNA: Mia, Francois just texted.
What should I say?
You've reached the voicemail box
of Shawna Clark.
Please leave me a message,
and I will get back to
You are over here making songs

- What's up?
- MIA: What's up, girl?
- Hi.
- What's up?
I connected with the SVP of Red Bull
and it took some finessing.
Might even burn a bridge,
but the deal is on the way.
- What?
- And I negotiated the biggest advance
that they ever gave any new artist.
Um, Chastity, that sounds am-amazing,
but we've been talking, and we decided
to keep working with Francois.
Are y'all serious right now?
Mia, I even had them
work something out for Lamont.
So he in, and everything is good.
Lamont said he wanna get it on his own.
And so do I.
MIA: Look, Titties, we, we love you,
and we appreciate
you getting us to this point, but
we gotta do what's best
for us right now.
Look, at first, the Red Bull
deal seemed amazing for us,
but, man, what's the point
of making music if nobody gon' hear it?
So we just think
that going with Francois
is gonna give us more attention.
I'm sorry.
You s You sorry.
Do y'all have any idea
how much I sacrificed for y'all?
That nigga just ghosted y'all.
Not me.
I've been here.

and I got it.
And I made y'all a priority
over my own shit.
Over everybody.
