Money Mad

Oh, so you do like her then? She's clocking you, fam, she's clocking you.
Hey, D.
You look really good.
- Thanks.
- Really good.
I was thinking the Youngers release their first music video.
- Yeah.
- I'm not doing a hood video.
Diva's looking to take things old school, baby! Let's go.
'I've always wanted to do a music video.
' From what I've heard A to B should be a simple thing.
Action! Very good.
Very good indeed.
For real, that was amazing.
34 views? It's better than none.
It's all right.
I've got a plan.
Have you been refreshing the page? - Bare times, man.
- I said I've got a plan.
So 34 views and half of that is probably you.
- It's only been three days, bruv.
- Come 2099, we might have a hit! It's because nobody knows it's there! Sick! Did you do this? Just a little something I threw together.
We hit the streets, sell them for what we can and the link for the video is on there too.
If Mohammed won't come to the mountain, let's take the mountain to Mohammed.
Yeah, man - for real.
Shouldn't forget about our Muslim fans.
Right.
Let's get hustling! Are you in there? Open the door and we can discuss your payment options.
Are you in? How come we're so broke? I see mums in these flats with, like, three, four babies.
How d'they afford that? Because their men don't serve oxtail and curried goat for a living.
No, Ashley.
What? You ain't going back to doing none of that.
I could just make some quick paper and then bounce.
And then the baby can visit her daddy once a fortnight? All right.
I'm going now.
But I will be back! I should get to work.
I'm gonna be late.
Don't worry, babe.
Look We're rich! I could get some corned beef or some tuna.
Do that with rice? It's cool.
I'll just eat at work.
You're not sick of chicken yet? Nah.
You know man loves his chicken.
Good luck! Yeah, man - it's the Linkster, innit? Check it out.
Yo! You're casting spells on me, sweetness! A girl like you's got to have Who was that joker? I don't know.
Look I live on the 15th floor.
Seen, seen.
That's well high.
You guys must get dizzy.
Excuse me? Hi.
No, you're all right, thanks.
Anyway, Princess, ain't you on the wrong side of the tracks? Hey, bruv - you look like you're into your tunes.
Want to buy some new music? What's wrong with you? Nothing.
The food's just The food's just what? It's gone a bit cold.
Oh, well Warm it up, son, warm it up! Uncle, man! I see dem Youngers up yours earlier, trying to sell their CDs and failing miserably.
When are they gonna start making you your millions, eh? - All right then, Benny.
- Take care, yes? Good to have you back, man.
One special CD has a golden ticket in it where you win a date with the MC.
That's me, by the way - So, you into grime? - Yeah.
We're just asking for some small donation, like five pound, maybe.
All proceeds go towards banging tunes that make the world a better place.
Safe! I actually sold one! How does it feel? Is it nice? It's all right! Oi! Let's go.
Hey! So patties on me, though, yeah? Hey, blud.
You think you're some bad man cos you drive through the endz in this? What's good, bruv? All good, Mr Radio! Well, it's been a long time, soldier.
What if you slipped a CD to everyone that buys, um a chicken roti and some Guinness punch? I don't want my customers listening to your music while they eating - it might put them off me food.
Please, man.
It won't cost you nothing to put a CD in a bag.
All right, all right, here's my Dragons' Den proposal for you, yeah? I'll unload your CD with every meal, but I want 51% of any future profits.
Come on, man.
So, you're looking to break into the music business, like Solomon? Don't you mean Mr Boss Fury? It gets ratings, though.
Maximus listeners love their Avengerz Krew, boi.
Yeah, man.
They're big round here, too.
I mean, if Youngers get even half the success AK's got they'll be overly happy.
So what else you doing with yourself? Man I'm just working for Uncle Errol at the moment.
I remember when he used to chase me and you out of the Clean And Jerk! Yo! Dem times.
And still till this day he's running yutes out of that shop, you know.
OK That's my man at the station.
They're on at seven.
I appreciate this, Benny, man.
What? Is everything cool? Yeah.
Better get back to work.
- Thanks, man.

Hey, Mr Man.
I saw that Benny driving around earlier.
Is it? Did you chat to him? No.
He was driving.
OK.

They want an interview and then to play your track.
How'd you swing that, fam? I know the man that bankrolls it.
- Tonight? - Can't we get a later slot though, fam? - No-one really listens at seven.
- I've got rehearsals.
- This is too late notice, man.

Seriously, I'm supposed to be rehearsing.
