Why you think I always stay up in the house? 'Cause the darkness be coming for me, too.
You got to change the whole flow up, man, and control the narrative, like this Jerrika situation.
Only way you gonna really get her back is if you make her feel like you ain't sweating her.

Short on strategy.
Yeah, well, strategy's Trice's purview.
One way to find out Step to him, see which way they shake.
No, we're not going at him yet.
They got four guys watching the house from the inside One on the porch, three of them follow Reg.
So we study up on 'em, then.
- Cool.
- What do you think? Couple of dope deals out front, but crew's too small to be cooking.
So what are they running out of there? Guess we just gonna have to take a look-see.
- [REG.]
How many? - [STICK.]
One of 'em is a crazy motherfucker that call himself JB.
We should roll up on 'em right now.
Nah, not here.
Nah, we need to do it so folks see.
Go on.
- Man, what the fuck was that? - What was what? What don't be playing with me.
Is that some ISIS shit you had me doing? Really? So who's the racist now? 'Cause you came in last week, spouting all that "Black Lives Matter, y'all some Muslim racists" mumbo jumbo, like I was the Grand Wizard of the Klan, but now you're sitting here calling me ISIS.
Man, one of your cousins was carrying a gun.
It's Chicago.
Everybody's got guns.
What's in the boxes, Amir? I can't be doing this shit without knowing what I'm driving.
All right.
All right, fine, I'll show you.
You fucking kidding me, right? Fucking cigarettes? I thought it was some pipe bombs or something in that shit.
Why you ain't tell me? - 'Cause it's illegal.
- Okay, fine.
You don't pay the tax bill.
Big deal.
It's more than that.
Most people can't afford just $14 for a pack of cigarettes, but everybody can afford a dollar for a loosie? Twenty smokes, that's twenty bucks.
Without the tax, I pay $4 a pack.
- That's a good hustle.
- Yeah, 'cause I'm a baller.
Nah, you know what's baller? The shoe game.
Yeah? Then why you coming at me looking for work? Because I got a scale problem.
I need more volume to get more customers, - thus making more money.
- Really? Yes.
I mean, I can get shoes from everyday Joes for cheap, clean 'em up and sell 'em for twice the price.
- You do the math, Amir.
- What math? Front me some money.
We can make this thing a business.
You know, my cousin Kasim might be interested in that.
- The terrorist? - Man, he's an entrepreneur.
All right, look, let me think about it.
All right.
Don't think too hard.
Fucking cigarettes.
Well, hello to you, too.
I want my bike back.
How you know I wasn't borrowing it? You can't borrow my bike if I didn't lend it to you.
- Then you stingy.
- Stingy? If you're doing this for attention or for me to be your boyfriend, it ain't working.
Somebody's full of himself.
Can I get my bike back or what? - Not gonna say "please"? - You stole my bike.
You don't need a "please.
" Damn, I just wanted to ride it.
- Well, get your own.
- We can't.
Maybe we could hold Hold hands or something? - Then can I get my bike? - Depends.
- This feels weird.
- Exactly.
- Go on, take it.
- For real? Yeah.
I was just borrowing it, anyway.
We needed to go to the store and get some milk 'cause I ran out.
What about the bike? I'm I'm lending it to you for now, you know, for the baby and stuff.
Yo, man, we going to hit this block party, get our grub on? Soon as you remember where the fuck you parked.
Shit, you're always talking shit, man.
Love this view, though.
Hey, man, you good? Hey, what's up, man? - I know who killed Coogie.
- No shit.
Yeah, this kid saw it and told me all about it.
So you go to the cops? - I can't.
- Why not? 'Cause he might be dead, and I might've helped kill him, first of all.
Probably not the best idea.
Yo, what the fuck you talking about, B? Man, he just rolled up on me, like, out of nowhere, you know, so I put a beating on him, like, a serious beating.
But I-I was about to get out of there, and then a kid pulls out a gun and shoots him.
