- You drinking again? - It was just one drink.
Noah, you're getting your own headline tour.
You're drunk.
Pull over.
License and registration, please.
I got Ayanna to give us an album release date.
Maybe you should decide if you're here for Alexandra Crane or Take 3.
What are you gonna do? I remember I was there for you bitches Yeah.
Ever since Star was little, she believed her name was who she was.
But I told her, fame is a trip.
It ain't love like a lot of people think.
But she wouldn't listen.
Star don't listen to nobody but herself.
What's up, y'all? Hey! What's goody in the hoodie? Please tell me y'all got time to edge me up today.

Tell Star to leave her ego out, and we'll be straight.
I said that I was sorry bitch.
Whatever, you Love & Hip Hop reject.
Yeah, y'all finished? You're 30 days away from a national tour.
Something y'all been fighting for this whole time.
Don't disappoint me.

You're going on tour with GiGi.
What, you want to give me a Breathalyzer? Yo, who you think you talking to? Look, you're about to sign a contract with a big cash advance, but if you get busted, you're gonna have to pay back that money.
I'm good, Miss C, I'm good.
Look at me.
Don't mess with me, boy.
Give me a moment.
This is about to be the hottest tour - since Bey and Jay.
- Yes, it is.

Okay, well, we got to turn up tonight.

- I'm in, I'm in.
Ladies and gentlemen, Noah Brooks.
Show 'em what you got, baby! Baby blue in the house! I told you not to drop that track.
- Why would you do that to me? - 'Cause it's a hit.
Do I have your attention now? Oh, you got everybody's attention.
The question is: what do you want to do with it? I want a hit, Maurice, but not like this.
You played me, and I'm tired of men playing me.
See, you ain't thinking straight.
I am.
That song gonna get people talking about you.
It might even get you a solo performance on this tour.
You're about to be the hottest piece of this Take 3 puzzle.
Look me in my eyes and say you don't want that.
I can't believe Jahil was living here.
I thought waiting a few days would make this easier.
He brought it back to his roots.
Mary and I used to record in this studio.
Mm-hmm.
Yeah, we did that right here.
How in the hell did Jahil afford a recording studio? He was a hustler.
I can't believe he's dead.
Sis, he was good people.
And I know you loved him.
I'm gonna find out who did this.
Y'all take all the time y'all need.
I'm-a be in the car.
Cassie.
Thank you.
Y'all filming this? I'm about to make y'all precinct famous.
Make sure y'all get my good side, too.
Mr.
Brooks, you might want to take this more seriously.
Sir, you've been arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct, and you assaulted a security guard at the club.
Man you crazy.
I-I ain't assault nobody.
That ain't true.
Turn to the right, please.
- You happy? - Your right, Mr.
Brooks.
I-I know I'm right.
I know I'm right.
Turn to the right, sir.
- - Uh Not returning calls now? What what is you doing? I'm sitting here working on my tour Hmm.
I got into it with Andy.
What? Yeah, you got drunk, didn't you? - Man, whatever.
- Don't play with me, boy! You know what, I'm sending you out with a handler on tour, because obviously you can't handle yourself! Man, I ain't your child! I told you to stop drinking, didn't I? - Hard head make a soft ass, Noah.
- No, first of all, you got it all twisted; you work for me! It ain't the other way around.
You better know your place.
- My place? - All right? Yeah, your place.
You need to sit your ass down.
You know what? You're fired.
I have to call you back, Doctor.
He better be prescribing you some damn sense.
You can't be here.
We're still trying to calm the scandal.
My board is starting to believe some of this nonsense, and they want to kick me out of Floyd Entertainment.
But if that jackass Trump can win, so can I.
Besides who's gonna run this company? You? How about this? Tell us how you guys met.
- How we met? - Huh.
We were born out the same We were born from the same womb.
We've told this story so many times, but I was on, um, the Gram doing covers, kind of like everybody else, and I was hoping to meet a dope songwriter.
That's how I met Alex.
Yeah.
I wasn't as confident in my music as I am now.
But Star was one of the first people that made me feel like I could make it - in the industry.
- That's dope.
You guys got a lot of individual success as well as group success.
Alex, I'm checking out "So Sick.
" I think it's literally so sick.
And, Star, "There For You," that thing is blazing up the charts like wildfire.
It's very revealing.
A lot of people love to see girl groups rip each other apart.
But there's no beef here.
- Is there? - I'm a fan.
I love to hear that, especially since word is that Star's "There For You" just hit seven million downloads.
- Congratulations, Star.
- Hmm.
What's next, ladies? I have to hand it to you.
You saved your damn job with Star's new single.
I'm taking advantage of the momentum.
I booked her a photo shoot, and I got more coming.
I knew I'd find your slippery ass here.
You bailed Noah out of jail, and then you covered it up.
I got friends at the police station.
Yeah.
His face would be all over the press, and his tour would be over before it started.
- You're enabling him.
- Didn't he fire you? You better wake the hell up before you lose everything.
You got one artist who needs rehab, and the others are being torn apart because of a song you released.
When I heard Star's single on air, it already had heat.
I ain't release it.
- Then who did? - I did.
Star had some things to get off her chest, and we struck gold.
You're just up in everything now, huh? No, not anymore.
I'm picking up your slack.
I mean, you got a lot going on.
Losing Jahil, and Keep his name out of your mouth.
If you hurt Noah, or you come between my girls, me and you gonna have a problem.
Try me, bitch.
Look out! Andy, get down! Hey.
What you doing here? I want my money, Andy.
Cassie, I'm gonna get you your money, okay? You think just 'cause you hit it right, - I'm playing around or something? - Come on, Cassie.
I always take care of you, don't I? Hmm? - Say yeah.
- Mm-hmm.
Keep going.
Maybe it'll buy you a week, before I stop at that coffee shop on Peachtree, one where your parents have brunch every week.
Why you ain't tell me they was white? Cassie, if you don't leave my parents out of this That's up to you.
Break time.
Let's get out of here.
Since when you doing solo shoots? When Alex was doing all of her solo stuff, you kept saying it would help Take 3.
What's the difference now, Simone? Alex didn't put out a diss track.
We're finally getting everything we wanted.
Yeah, the track is working, so I'm doing what I can to help us.
There you go again, trying to save me.
Look, you should save your damn self.
It's for Mama, too.
This has nothing to do with Mama.
Yes, it does.
I got to do what she couldn't.
'Cause I'm the one who killed her.
Stop, Star.
You didn't kill her.
The drugs did.
She said she needed medicine, so I gave it to her.
But it just seemed like she was getting worse, so I gave her more.
And she died.
I've been trying to find a way to tell you.
Yeah, that's because you think I'm some broken kid that can't handle themself.
But I can.
And I ain't gonna hold it against you, what happened between you and Mama.
You were a kid.
Yeah, but you need to let it go.
I can still see her dying, Simone.
Let it go, Star.
It's a choice to be broken.
I will cross every line I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid I will fight the fight Win or lose Win or lose.
I thought you weren't messing with the Jackson track anymore? Star's getting hers, so I can get mine.
You sure you know what you're doing? You three girls together are fire.
Have you talked to Carlotta yet? Here we go.
All right, look.
I know you had to get me out of that DUI.
And I hate that I let you do it, but I hate it even more that you hold it over me, over some lies in a track.
- Were they really lies, Noah? - Come on.
I'm going home.
Yeah, you do that.
- Cotton, just sit down and say whatever it is.
- What is this about, Cotton? Damn.
I know who killed Jahil.
It was Omari.
I let him live.
I couldn't go through with it.
And I gave him a second chance, but You stupid bitch! - Carlotta, no, no.
- He knew that was her father! And now he know you got a son, I bet.
- Omari's a dead man.
- No.
Stupid, playing with this fool I told you - not to play with from the beginning.
- Wait a minute.
Look, if I let you walk out that door, you gonna ruin your life.
You ain't killed nobody yet.
Just 'cause you went along with that plan with me and Mama, you still didn't kill nobody.
And you ain't about to.
You need to get Cotton and her baby out of town.
I got this.
I do this.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
It's all right.
Come here.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
I visited Jahil's grave for you.
And I talked to your mom.
We're getting money together for a lawyer.
My hearing moved up.
What? I'm being deported.
No.
Who do we got to call? Simone, I lost.
I don't have any rights here.
You have me.
And I'm not gonna lose you.
You have your whole life ahead of you.
I'm leaving.
My lawyer said he's gonna help us get an annulment.
No.
No.
What are you doing? I love you.
Good Day Atlanta is gonna start off with a performance reel.
Get everybody pumped up about tomorrow's tour opening.
Come on, babe, time to get up.
He left me here because he thought this is what I wanted, and I don't want this.
I want him.
I want him, and I'll do whatever it takes to get him back and be with him again.
Simone, you been in this bed two weeks.
I don't expect you to understand, Miss C, because you've never loved anyone the way that I loved Angel.
Ow! Now, get your little narrow ass up off of that floor and stop acting crazy! And yes, I have loved.
I just buried him.
Going home? If I want to be ready for my first night on tour, I need to go get some real sleep.
Maybe we can relax in other ways.
I'm just really tired of fighting.
I'm trying to fix you just like I tried to fix my mom.
Yeah, look, I'll throw it away.
Look, it's nothing.
No, and then you'll buy another one, just like she did.
I can't do this again, with you.
This is just to take the edge off, that's all.
Please, look, look.
I don't need it.
Please.
I can't.
Don't say that.
Don't say that, please.
Don't cry, come on.
I'm sorry.
I'm trying.
Come on, it's you and me.
- You and me.

This what y'all been chasing for months, and here it is, we're here.
Now, look, I know Noah is on that bill and so is GiGi.
They got the pictures, but Take 3 is right there in the middle, and you got a crowd out there that's waiting to hear Take 3.
So, I need y'all to get hype, get it up and get ready to murder them out there! You know what I'm saying? You got to put it in.

Uh, this group cannot make it through an entire national tour.
- Take 3 is out.
- Wait a minute.
I think Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
You don't have to do that.
- Uh, guys - Star's single is getting national attention.
It's definitely hot enough to push ticket sales.
Your opening act is standing right there.
What you trying to pull? I'm only doing what you should be doing as her manager.
I told you stop trying to come between these girls.
Star, don't listen to this mess.
Carlotta, he's not wrong.
Star has proven to be a crowd-pleaser - across all demographics.
- "All demographics.
" Right.
I'm not standing here listening to this.
We ain't a family.
Not no more.
Everything I've ever done has been for us.
Would you stop with the lies? Look, Take 3 is a package deal.
Not according to their contract with Midtown.
Then Sound House is on board.
Star joins the tour as a solo artist, if she's in.
My "A" game is on, baby! And yours better be, too.
What's up? Nothing.
Nothing, nothing, nothing.
Just trying to just trying to get my mind right.
Well, isn't Alex supposed to be helping out with that? She trippin', just like Carlotta.
They don't get the pressure and what it takes for me to get out of it.
Your process is your process.
Everybody got their own thing.
I know I do.
Want to share? What you got? You stupid, girl.
Okay.
Turn up.
Noah! Noah! Noah! Noah! Yo, I want to thank y'all for coming out tonight.
Thank you so much.
This means so much to me.

And to get things started, I want to bring my girl out, GiGi.
- We are not together.
- I know that.
So I really don't understand what the hell the big issue is - about what I'm doing.

Something happen with Noah? - What did he do? - No.
It doesn't have anything to do with him.
He's a drunk just like my mother.
And I'm becoming my father.
Stop it.
That is not who you are.
It didn't used to be.
Not when I was with you.
I'm going to New York tomorrow.
I just need to ask my dad why he's so messed up.
Why am I constantly trying to find something new, just like he does, when everything was perfect right in front of me? I got a girl now.
And it's easy with her.
She doesn't lie to me.
Of course I'm going to take my father out at Floyd Entertainment, but it will take some chess moves.
Let me call you back.
Why are you working in the dark? I was just taking some time to organize your calendar Is that my checkbook? You're forging my name? Ayanna, I Security's gonna get you out of here.
Please listen to me.

- All right.
I got it.
Go get yourself cleaned up.
Okay.
All right.
You're gonna be all right.
There's an ambulance on the way, okay? - No ambulance.
- What? No.
I've been shot in my own office.
I won't give my father the satisfaction of thinking I'm weak.
Stop it.
You ain't weak.
Girl, I'm I'm preg I'm pregnant.
It's Jahil's.
What a mess.
- - CARLOTTA: I know it was a lot of blood, but she's already discharged and back to work.
But you got to tell me why you needed that money so bad.
Jahil's bullet was meant for me.
Who you owe? Who's after you? Look, I can help you, but you gonna have to give me a name.
Who killed Jahil? Look at me, answer me! Your sister.
Cassie.
My Cassie? You owe my sister money?! Is you crazy? Oh, my God.
- Carlotta.
Carlotta.
- Oh, my God.
I think you're right.
Ah.
I see we have a quorum in here today.
You're in my seat, girl.
It's not your seat anymore.
I'm taking over leadership of Floyd Entertainment.
You are the one who taught me how to play chess, Daddy.
True, true.
Very true.
Checkmate.
Get him out of here.
Don't put your hands on Get off of me, damn it! Bye.
Perfect timing.
Now that I'll be running Floyd Entertainment, allow me to introduce you to the new head of Midtown Sound: Carlotta Brown.
You're fired.
Slow down.
Pace yourself.
- My bad.
I'm here.
We here.
- We here? - We here.
- Yo, can y'all chill? I can hear you from my dressing room.
Noah, please don't tell me you messing with this bitch again.
Second night of a national tour, you believe that? What's up? When I got to Atlanta, it was just me and the girls.
That's all we had was each other.
So when I pictured this, I was here with them.
Instead, I'm here with you.
Look at you.
Noah, you're throwing it all away.
Man, I'm not trying to hear your mouth right now before I go onstage! What are you trying to do? What the hell are you doing, Noah? I'm on top, Star.
That's what this looks like.
That's what it is, but you wouldn't know that 'cause you ain't never been here before.
I'm right where you are! I'm alone and you're alone! And you're crumbling.
I ain't alone.
You hear them cro You hear the crowd? And you're crumbling.
It's a choice to be broken, I'm learning that.
I'm trying to change.
Are you ever gonna change? You can't, can you? 'Cause you think all of this makes you an artist.
It don't.
It just makes you an addict.
Not Prince.
Not Michael.
Just an addict.
Y'all give it up for Star Davis! You talk a good game Say all the things that you think Think I want to hear, let me be clear When it comes to help, don't trip I can do it for you, baby, and I do it for myself Understand I don't want to be alone Play the backseat and take what you give I just can't, so I won't Anything I want, anything I need, I'm able So as far as what I'm bringing to the table I bring me Get mine, 'bout mine, go hard - Airport? - International terminal.

It's just been announced an airplane has gone down in the Appalachian Mountains.
We can confirm it is a flight out of Atlanta.
