Don't believe anything that comes out of her mouth.
All she do is lies, okay? - Lisa ain't shit.
- What are you talking about? Look, Lisa's the best thing that ever happened to me.
Like, we doing grown folk stuff.

We even did wine tasting.
And breaking news not every wine is sweet.
- That's crazy.
- Bobby.
No, don't "Bobby" me.
Look, I understand that your girl and Lisa got beef, but that ain't got nothing to do with me.
Your issues with my girl is exactly that your issues.
Look, she believes in me.
She believes in my dreams.
She believes in you cloning Rihanna and having a threesome? Well, not that one exactly, but but I'll tell you this.
She's the first person to tell me that I'm right.
- Y'all never do that.
- You're wrong, Bobby.
That's what I'm saying right there.
I'm not getting in y'all drama, Shay.
I'm not.
I'm not getting into it.
You know what I'm saying? It's my girl.
Hey, babe.
I did my push-ups before you got here.
- Called a ride? - Nah, man, I'm good.
Nah, you definitely called a ride, Tray.
How you know my How you know my name, man? I make it my business to know people looking for me.
So you must be BAMF.
When I was a shorty, my side hustle was jumping out of cabs without paying, not actually being the cab.
You know, the neighborhood changed a long time ago.
Now-a-days, white people call the cops on young brothers loitering, so ride sharing is the way to do business under the radar, a'ight? So what's up? Why you asking people about me, huh? 'Cause you rolled up on my business last night, man.
I came here hoping I could have a man-to-man conversation with you.
I just did a 15-year bid up in Southfield, right? Just came home a year ago, trying to get back on my feet.
And me and my mans, we just want to know if we could get a pass on them street taxes.
Is stupid a side dish on your truck? You just as dumb as that white boy.
Ain't no pass on taxes.
I'm Uncle Sam in this bitch, you heard? Any more questions? Nah.
That's what I thought.
Are you Richard? Yes.
I can see you guys are going to Harlem.
Traffic's light, so it shouldn't take too long.
Enjoy the complimentary water in the cup holders.
We should be there shortly.
- You guys like showtunes? - Who doesn't? FELONY: Superman is faster than the Flash.
Like, in outer space, he's breaking the speed of light.
- That's 2.
9 - What does it say on the back of the action-figure box? It says the Flash, fastest man alive.
Does that say that shit on Superman box? - No.
It only - It goes without saying.
No, no, no, no.
No it fucking don't.
You good? One of these little sags out here is trying to extort my ass, man.
What happened to the code of the streets? The only street code in Brooklyn now is to curb your dog.
I seen a hipster get his mustache smacked off for breaking that one.
Nah, man, I'm just talking about basic respect, man.
Sag out here, man.
They don't got no respect for nobody that been where they been.
'Cause we always remind them we been where they been, and yet we ain't got shit to show for it.
Ah, man, shit just changed out here too much.
- Who used to run this block? - Why does that matter? Because either young boy took the block from the OG or the OG gave the block to the boy.
And if it's the latter, then that's who he respect.
Got a point there, man.
Plus I think you right about the Flash.
- Dah! - No, no, no, no.
Flash, two time, pop, pop! Tray.
What you doing here, man? Green Eyes, I need to talk to you, man.
Good for me you still live with your moms.
Actually it's my daughter house now.
Big ups to your moms, man.
She raised your daughter right.
Man, come in.
What's good? Hustlin', strivin'.
- You? - Just here, man.
I'm trying to be like you when I grow up.
[CHUCKLES] It's your world, baby.
- I'm just trying to live in it.
- Nah.
I'm living in a world where one of these young sags out here, man, trying to charge me a food-truck tax.
Pulled a toaster on me, man.
Some kid named BAMF.
- You know him? - Yeah.
Listen, Green Eyes, man, you one of the few people in the world that could help me out with this, a'ight? If you see the kid on the streets, put a bug in his ear or something, man.
I give you whatever you need after that free food, anything.
I have a gun.
For me, everything already free.
Figure something out, man.
You know, OG to OG, If you see the kid, Green, say something to the kid.
All right, let me stop you right there.
We cool, Tray.
But this ain't really my business.
I'll figure it out.
Like I did everything else in my life, man.
My bid, man my first two years was hard.
I would go to the showers with my boxers on and my socks, man, 'cause I didn't want to get raped or feet fungus.
- [LAUGHS] - But didn't it backfire on me, man? I ended up getting feet fungus in my junk and raped on my feet.
Man, you still a funny dude, brah.
I ain't believing I'm-a say this, but what the hell? Let's see if we can talk to old BAMF right quick, huh? All right.
Yo, Green, as kids growing up, we ain't always see eye to eye, man.
You're still one of the realest to me.
I said "we.
" You ain't using me as your own personal thug telegram service.
They only point their joints at me.
The hell you think this is? Whoa, whoa, can I ask you a question? You only stole one of those vests? What I'm gonna wear? What I'm gonna wear? MAN: Well, if you'd allow me to elucidate, the subcontext is the dualistic nature of violent inner-city life.
Mm, okay.
Let me ask you a question.
Where in the Bible, uh, does it say that Jesus was bow-legged? Because he bow-legged as hell.
Boom! Ha! Broke down.
Eh! Eh! [LAUGHS] You don't know nothing.
Boy, you and that brain.
[CHUCKLES] Hey, he the best in bed.
[CHUCKLES] I mean, out of all the guys, he the best ever.
- I mean, you the best.
- What the hell? - What are you - What? - Oh, my Hey, Greg.
- No, no, no, no.
- You are not allowed within 40 feet of me.
- What? How was I supposed to know you was even gonna be here? 'Cause I own this gallery.
Well, that's what you said, but you know you be lying.
Like that time you said you owned that couch and that car and the keys to my heart.
Is this performance art? I'm gonna need you to shut your mouth.
See, I'm trying to be cordial, but I need you to go.
You know what? Bump this.
You lucky I don't have my boyfriend whoop your ass.
[SCOFFS] I know you ain't talking You ain't talking about me.
I know you ain't talking about 'cause that that is you damn sure that ain't true, you know what I'm saying? You know what? Shay told me about you.

This your man? Yeah, the one you pulled a gun out on.
But I'm a peaceful man.

We need to talk this tax thing out.
Just treat him like fam.
You know, treat him like you treat me.
See, I know you.
I don't know him.
My dude, I appeal to you, man.
What you trying to do, I done did already.
And one rule I learned there's always somebody out there younger or hungrier plotting to take your crown.
Do what you gonna do.
You gonna end up dead or in jail or some old broke-head with knowledge and nothing else, like me.
That's why I came here to talk to you, man.
I did 15 years in prison so you don't have to do it.
I did it for you.
I Man, fuck this, man.
Let's bounce.

You said some powerful things in there.
I'm about to be one of them broke old-heads.
The stick-up game ain't the same.
Nobody carry cash.

He ain't gonna collect tax if I'm on that truck.
Look, pay me half of what you would've paid him.
But listen, if I hire you, it got to be a fresh start.
