Atlanta Episode 8: “The Club” Recap

FX screenshot

 

When FX first announced their partnership with NBC workhorse Donald Glover for their new show about the inner-workings of an up and coming rapper and his manager, I assumed scenes like the ones that take place in Atlanta’s “The Club” would be par for the course. Club appearances and popped bottles are, after all, much of what goes into the life of a local rapper trying to go mainstream. That it took all the way until episode eight to tell this funny, albeit cliché, story is refreshing. Atlanta makes great use of well-worn narratives and uses them to advance the plot for all three of its main characters. Van is currently in sleep mode like one of the robots in HBO’s Westworld but the end of episode preview lets us know she’ll be back next week to fulfill her angry black woman duties. Yay, I guess.

Anywho! This week we catch up with C-level celebrity rapper Alfred aka Paper Boi, his cousin/ manager Earn and everybody’s favorite lovable Nigerian (sorry, Adebisi!) Darrius as they post up in one of several VIP sections of a nightclub in ATL called Primal. I was a little confused by the VIP hierarchy but apparently Paper Boi is being paid to make an appearance at a club where nobody notices he’s there. Seems kind of counterproductive from a club promoter point of view but what do I know?

For Paper Boi, this is work and he’s not too happy that ownership has him drinking bottles of Rosé while NFL player Marcus Miles’s section is poppin’ with preferential club real estate, manlier beverage options and a stable of fine heinas to keep him and his leather-clad pet peacock company. Darrius is having a great time, though, being the one guy at the club that everybody seems to like to do free shots with. Darrius admits that twenty-percent of his alcohol he drinks for free. That sounds impressive, Darrius. Of course, if you were a sexy lady (or just any woman, really) all of your drinks would have been for free. (Panama Edit: This isn’t even remotely true, ladies.) But good for you.

Here are a couple of things we learn about Paper Boi tonight: A. He does not trust niggas at the club (does anyone?) B. He does not trust Nigerians (ouch, Darrius) C. He doesn’t trust any man and D. Paper Boi sadly doesn’t even trust himself. It doesn’t seem like Alfred much likes being Paper Boi but he’s doing it because that’s what is expected of a man of his social stature, complexion and zip code. The industry life doesn’t really suit what we have come to know of Alfred’s personality and he’d much rather be at home watching a movie than be sitting at the club getting stunted on by Miles and his invisible car.

The DJ announces both men are in the building and there are literally threes of peoples that care that Alfred is there. Well, except for one Superfan who knows his entire catalogue by heart. Even the sing-songy hooks. Other than him, nobody cur’. Earn suggests to his cousin that they worry about the more immediate goals than showing off their celebrity status, namely getting paid, and he goes off to look for the promoter Chris about their money. He is temporarily side-tracked when he notices that somebody in the large crowd “smells like a Wendy’s Double Stack”. He looks up and notices Chris in his eye line. icackled. Earn politely reminds him about the matter of payment. Shady Chris is shady and while he makes no outward protestation he quickly gets “lost” in the crowd before Earn can collect their money.

Paperboi is dead-set on finding some semblance of recognition and he foolishly decides to order bottle service to attract the looky-loos and hangers on to their section. One woman that catches his eye appears to be more than just eye-candy but someone who could actually be a potential love interest. They spend the remainder of the night hanging out until she reveals that she actually has a boyfriend but she’s happy to give his lil’ SoundCloud link a listen. #burn

Elsewhere, Darius builds a rapport with the guy in charge of the red velvet rope, wondering if he’d ever had to throw out another bouncer. Cue the Inception, “bwooooong” sound because my mind has just been blown, y’all. It was at this moment that I decided to text my homie Snack who bounces down in Miami to corroborate this story and he confirmed that yes it happens, yes “it’s hard” and yes when the bouncer becomes the bouncee he will know “all the moves”.  After taking a break to watch people smoke, Darius is declined re-entry from the very bouncer he bonded with minutes before. Darius takes a look around the club and decides he has better things to do. By the time Paper Boi is calling him to leave he’s already cozy at home eating a big bowl of cereal. Darius is me at 12:45am every Saturday, watching Toonami while my girlfriends wonder who I caught a ride home with.

Earn catches back up with shady Chris and this time lets him know he needs him to come up out those pockets. Shady Chris keeps offering Earn drinks even though he doesn’t like shots and finds a way to sneak away again like the snake that he is. This time, he steps behind a false wall like some kind of a Bond villain. Earn doesn’t know where he is or how to follow so he decides to let his frustrations out on a nearby bartender who saw the whole thing and finds it hilarious. Earn says that the club is a “money suck”. It is.

Earn believes nobody is actually having fun at the club, well, except for maybe that one guy. They aren’t. But as the pretty bartender points out, that’s the performance we all our willing to put on. We like money. We like opulence. More than anything we like being able to say we have more, more money, more women, more happiness, than the next man. And sometimes we’re willing to do a bunch of stuff we really don’t like in order to say that. In order to feel like we matter. Agent of Chaos-bartendar lady knew every card Earn was holding in the deck and was unwilling to let him feel too sorry for himself. I also found their light-flirting cute. With shows like this one and Issa Rae’s Insecure over on HBO, brown-skinned unambiguously black girls are having the best week ever! (Seriously, check Insecure out if you haven’t done so already).

“This is meaningless!”

Episode 8 is a lot more grounded in reality (albeit a reality where folks hear “Knuck if you Buck” at the club and don’t go immediately hyphee) than last week’s farcical episode or even Ep 5’s “Nobody Beats the Biebs” but it was a necessary return to earth. After spending several episodes showing us just how relatable the man behind the Paper Boi moniker is, “The Club” finally reveals just why somebody like Alfred could be a credible rap star in the first place.

After Marcus Miles decides to purchase Primal and the club empties out Earn must confront Alfred with the news that shady Chris only gave them $750 of their agreed-upon $5k due to such things as the purchase of club flyers and beefed up security for a “thug” like Paper Boi. First of all, I used to design, print and sell club flyers and there ain’t no way in Hollywood hell a couple of 4×6’s on card stock would eat up that much money. But I’ma let this shady man cook.

Apparently, Paper Boi was also supposed to perform.  Earn admits to his cousin that he is not the kind of black man other black men are intimidated by. For possibly the first time that evening, Alfred is at an advantage and it’s revealed exactly why he has star power as he, Earn, Earn’s coworker from the airport gig and possibly some dude named Sweaty-Ass Tony storm Chris’s office and collect the rest of their cash by any means necessary. Paper Boi proceeds to slap the ever-loving dust off of Chris and while he does call the cops, Chris reveals to nameless chick # 1,080 that actions like that are how trap stars are born.

As is the case with all evenings at “da clerb” shots ring out in the night as Marcus Miles peels out in his invisible car, hitting innocent bystanders as he flies by. I guess it did exist! Our three main guys decide to celebrate over diner food but their good time is cut short after hearing that Paper Boi is now wanted for questioning from the evening’s events at Primal on the news. Paper Boi says, “F*ck” the club”. He ain’t never lied.

Will this new run-in with Atlanta PD end Paper Boi’s career before it even has a chance to get started or will it make him infamous like so many successful rappers before him? In the Universe of #AtlantaFX anything is possible.

    • Amen

      AS SOON as they brought that invisible car, I knew someone was going to get run over at some point.

      • Tamera Jacobs

        lol I really wasn’t ready..

    • Trill Mickelson

      Yo, I just finished this episode at work and WASN’T READY FOR THAT AT ALL, b. My door is closed yet somebody on the whole other side of the floor just gchatted me and asked why I was laughing so hard. I can’t deal with this show, man.

      • Tamera Jacobs

        I literally was the same at work, just laughing to myself then trying to explain it to a co worker who has no idea of the show.

    • Wizznilliam

      That was super unexpected… It was one of those, “Wait.. What??” moments. It is literally a must laugh moment and it only last maybe half a second.

    • Red October

      I seriously watched that scene 10 times lol. I am loving this show.

    • King Beauregard

      I do need to say it, though: an invisible car is a TERRIBLE idea. I know I don’t make a habit of leaving room for cars I can’t see, and I imagine most drivers are the same.

      • King Beauregard

        … so does that make the invisible car a metaphor for the futility of trying to bolster one’s status through conspicuous consumption, and how it leads only to others crashing into you? Curse you Glover, you’re making this way more profounder than I was ready for.

      • Tamera Jacobs

        I’ve been waiting the longest for a flying driverless car lol

  • Other_guy13

    You just made me want to watch this show

    • cyanic

      Did you tune out episodes ago or you never watched it?

      • Other_guy13

        Only watched the first two episodes

    • Val

      Why are you always so behind? Lol

      • Other_guy13

        School, work, VSB…..take your pick Val

  • Mr. Mooggyy

    So did the bartender feel sorry for Earn or was she flirting!? QTNA! Cuz it seems as if Earn couldn’t tell the difference! He was trying too hard to be about his business and being “Anti-club” that he was oblivious to the fact!

    • Damon Young

      he definitely missed an opportunity. (although should we be rooting for him to get with other chicks when he has van at home?)

      • Val

        No, we shouldn’t. Plus,Ern is already bad enough, we don’t need any more reasons not to like him.

        • Ille Jay

          Earn isn’t bad, IMO…he’s just a slakker, which, past a certain age, just has a different perception and reaction from folks of color.

          • Val

            Lol Dudes are always defending Ern. Lol

            • cyanic

              Females don’t have male privilege to do the same. But there are privileges to being female.

              • Val

                Huh? Privilege to be a slacker?

                • cyanic

                  I’ve never seen a female slacker. Women hustle jobless.

                  • Annalise Keating

                    Where do you live? I see many female slackers.

                    • cyanic

                      Where are they?

                    • Annalise Keating

                      In many cities I have lived in. I guess it would depend on how you define slacker. How do you define slacker? I know quite a few mothers who don’t take care of their kids. Or folks who have no job who are content with living off govt assistance even though there is no physical reason they can’t work to pay for the things they desire. I could go on and on….

                • cyanic

                  I know a skinny female drunk who keeps herself a man and county services.

          • miss t-lee

            *anyone.

            • Ille Jay

              LoL, it IS a human issue, but I grew up around other skin tones for a decent part of my childhood and seeing older brothers and men, Who were slakkers get passes, in other cultures, when I know I’d get shunned in mine had me like “whaaaat?”

              • miss t-lee

                I did too.
                I ain’t never seen anyone happy that their folks are slackers, or deadbeats.

                • Ille Jay

                  Respect

          • as it should. ern has a child…slacking days are over. oh wait, there’s some random woman to pick up his and her job too. carry on!

        • Julian Green

          Are Ern and Van even together?

          • cyanic

            When it’s convenient.

          • Val

            Well, it seems so. They live in the same place. At least when Ern can afford to help out with the bills and such. It seems like she’s tired of his slacking but she hasn’t totally given up on him. And he seems like he wants to be with her. So, yeah.

            • They deserve each other. She’s a clueless weirdo just like everyone else Earn knows. She’s just more self-righteous about it.

              • Val

                Weirdo though?

                • cyanic

                  The same.

                • She’s a tad weird, Val.

                  • cyanic

                    Because?

                    • She was attracted to Earn’s weird-a** and a lot of that same weird was within her.

                    • cyanic

                      Is he weird because he’s not stereotypical?

                    • Nah. Earn is a different cat.

                    • Brooklyn_Bruin

                      Yes that’s the definition of weird in this context. Anyone saying different is one of THEM

                    • cyanic

                      I know relatability matters. But the audience Atlanta is reaching are the same persons who reject Glover due to not having a read on him and his previous acceptance in white spaces.

                    • Brooklyn_Bruin

                      The irony hasn’t missed me.

                      VSB is full of Greek letters, boho-lites, one foot in the e-streets the other in the cube, and the Bourgie Mob.

                      Glover’s audience also includes the Bernie Bros and frat boys, as well as some wannabe trap boys/world star teens.

                      These kumbuyah pan African are going to try and push us into a box for “unity”

                      But in a lot of ways, the show is about the problems of lock step blackness, unlike the love letter to negotiated blackness that Luke Cage was.

                    • cyanic

                      We need our own blog. Create a space for off-consensus blacks.

                    • Brooklyn_Bruin

                      That’s what this place was, right?

                      LOL

                    • cyanic

                      Their version of weird ain’t ours.

                  • Annalise Keating

                    Weird is a relative term. It is in the eye of the beholder.

                  • Val

                    The only thing she did that was kinda weird was the pee thing but she was trying to not get fired.

            • Julian Green

              Idk. I look at what we’ve seen of their relationship and the whole thing seems to be based on obligation and convenience more than genuine affection. It’s like they’re both going;

              “Well, we’ve got this kid and we don’t actively dislike each other and finding another bae at this point is probably going to be a pain in the @zz, so we may as well just ride things out for now.”

              • Val

                I think that’s how Van feels. I think Ern would like more. She’s def more turned off in general than he is.

            • lol they not together.

          • no!

        • Brad G

          what makes Ern unlikeable?

          • Val

            What makes him likeable? Lol Nothing that I can see. I mean, he’s constantly grouchy and a smart azz to everyone. And he’s not even very good at his job.

            • cyanic

              He’s done a lot for Alfred. Alfred is uninterested in being a celebrity. He rather get that paper without the games attached.

              • Val

                Alfred? Lol He couldn’t even get paid! Paperboi had to get the money. And the gig itself was weak.

                • cyanic

                  Every gig is weak from the ground up. Earn getting his song played on the radio was a big one.

            • Brad G

              LOL I do agree… being broke can definitely do that to people. Seems like there’s so much more to him; he was an Ivy Leaguer and something happened… I’m genuinely interested in what made him become such a curmudgeon.

              • Annalise Keating

                “Seems like there’s so much more to him; he was an Ivy Leaguer and something happened… ”

                I have always been fascinated by why people give “accomplished” people the benefit of the doubt versus “non accomplished” folks. Would you wonder the same thing if he had not attended an Ivy League school?

                • cyanic

                  Whatever has value ascribed to it is valuable to us.

                  • Annalise Keating

                    What? I don’t understand. Please clarify.
                    I was trying to understand why the fact that he went to an Ivy League means there is more to his story whereas if he went to a state school or didn’t go college at all then folks would be quicker to write him off….

                    • cyanic

                      Sorry. What I mean people value an Ivy League education because its value has already been vetted. Someone with a value association is seen as less valuable.

                    • Annalise Keating

                      Got it. I am not sure if that’s right though. Not just that other people see people as more valuable because they went to an Ivy League school (outside of specific reasons like for jobs and stuff like that) but that people themselves ascribe value to themselves based on these things.

                      Kind of like when folks find someone who is a “professional” or went to an Ivy League school died and they say it’s more tragic this person is gone because of those things. Makes me a little uneasy…

                    • cyanic

                      Agree there’s a pecking order for everything.

                    • Wizznilliam

                      I think it has to do with expectations. If a guy did everything needed to successfully get into an Ivy League school, then there are some things you kinda know about him right away, especially if black. He’s probably very book smart, very hard working, maybe nerdy, maybe artsy, whatever.. So then the expectation is not that he is going to end up at home bumming off his girlfriend and parents. So now it’s like… Well what happened? We expect a lot more. So what’s the story we are missing? Was he really just lazy or is there something else? He don’t seem all that lazy to me cause he is actually working getting Paper Boi name out there.

                      And I don’t think people think of if as a professional or Ivy league people being more valuable. I just think they recognize that loss of potential. People think that this person had a chance to do so many things that I’ll probably never have had a chance to do and now they gone.

                • Brad G

                  2 things here:

                  1. He’s hasn’t “accomplished” anything, that’s why he’s interesting. At some point though he had more in mind than selling credit cards at Hartsfield Jackson. Backstories allow us to know why a person is who they are. His hasn’t been told yet and he’s clearly the main character.

                  2. Yes, because it’s a TV show. We need to care about and ultimately like the main character or else there’s really no point of the show. If the main character was “non-accomplished” I would care just as much because their life is unraveling in front of our eyes. We get nuance, balance, and depth. That’s all I’m saying. Everyone has a story.

            • I mean he got him into a club to perform, a celebrity basketball game, a tv show, and another club

              • Val

                Other than the club performance, which we didn’t see, everything else was kind of janky, don’t you think?

                • Paper Boi kind of janky. We really aren’t in an era where thug rappin is the way to go. Only thug rappers that have a name for themselves in 2016 have been rapping for at least 13 years at this point.

          • Dos Pesos

            I think Earn is intentionally meant to be unlikable. He is the really book smart guy that has been told he is “special” all his life because of his academic achievements. Now that he has experienced academic failure, he has lost his identity and is coming to terms with the fact that he no longer feels or is perceived as special.
            Although he is smart, he brings little to the table for the people in his life. He is Paperboi’s “manager,” but it is Alfred who ultimately has to handle business and get the money. He is a father, but cannot consistently provide for his own child–who would starve and be homeless, but for Van.

      • Mr. Mooggyy

        I mean….she dates other dudes!

        • cyanic

          She dates corny nuggahs.

          • brothaskeeper

            But Earn is corny.

            • cyanic

              He’s regular not pretentious corny.

      • Annalise Keating

        they really shouldn’t be together. They are not compatible. And she is seeing other people. What kind of relationship is that?

      • ern and van aren’t in a relationship. period. van need to go on and be about her business and stop messing with bum ern.

        • MsSula

          Exactly. Van is just helping a friend who happens to be her baby daddy. But they are definitely not together.

    • He could have shot his shot if he wanted but his misery was in his way but she seemed to have found his misery endearing.

  • cyanic

    The generous bartender resembled a young Lela Rochon.

    • Val

      Nope.

    • Mr. Mooggyy

      I have a love/hate relationship with bartenders like that! Yes, I enjoy the hookup on drinks! I enjoy the banter back and forth! I appreciate the being known so that you are not just another person in the crowd! I hate the aftermath of the unintentional drunk night that wasn’t supposed to be! And they keep doing it! And I’m a ni99a, so I keep receiving the hookups! It’s one vicious cycle. And don’t let the bartender be fine too! She gets all my attention!

    • Ille Jay

      More this than Lela and lawd did I have ever to redo this, cause of the child’s name? Shame VSB smh

      • cyanic

        No. She reminded me of Lela. Her vocal tone was almost the same.

        • Ille Jay

          Hey I just gave another option, I didn’t shut you down…haha

  • Val

    I just want to know what’s up with Ern’s hair situation. Are we supposed to not notice that his hair goes from long to short and his beard goes from there to not there over the course of a couple of episodes?

    I was glad when the club promoter got his butt kicked by Paperboi although I was hoping Ern was going to do it the first time.

    The woman Paperboi was talking to was cute. Was hoping he got her number so we’d see her again.

    • cyanic

      She’s recurring on TP’s The Haves and Have Nots.

      • Val

        We’ll I guess that means I’ll never see her. Lol

          *cackles!

          You mean you’re not going to see Madea’s Boo! Or whatever it’s called?

          • Val

            Interestingly enough, that’s the only movie of his that I’ve ever felt like it might actually be funny. I don’t know why. Still not going to see it though. Lol

            • Vanity in Peril

              It shows clowns in the trailer so no can do for me but you have a point.

            • Ari

              I’m going! My first TP premier ever and I’m actually excited. And I cackle every time I see the word “Halloreen.”

              • Val

                Lol Those commercials are funny. Let me know if you like it.

        • Annalise Keating

          LOL

    • Girl, Paperboi came through.. slapping him with the money at the end was the icing on the cake!!

      • Val

        Yep. I thought they were going to get arrested while they were standing around in the parking lot.

        • Me too!! He is a bytch for calling the cops.. and of course, they’ve no contract.

        • Lol@ the setup for the invisible car

    • Shrinkage

      • Val

        Lol Beard shrinkage?

    • “The woman Paperboi was talking to was cute.”

      Yep.

  • brothaskeeper

    This episode is the club to a tee. It’s everything you hate or everything you want it to be. The bartender gave Earn the best advice, though. “Go home!”

    I died when the people got hit by the invisible car!?

  • San

    That is definitely an edit by a man regarding all drinks being free. But even if the drinks are free (according to Panama) they come with a cost of the following; the immediate force of you having to key your number in his phone, test calls you, then expects you to stay with him the remainder of the night.

    • Ille Jay

      He was saying they are NOT all free for women, he edited what Jordan was saying.

      • Ille Jay

        Least that’s how I read it.

        • Vanity in Peril

          You right.

          Although my going to the club game plan has always been to pre drink at the house and then nurse the free drinks at the club while I plot my escape.

          I’m a cheapazz, only Judy can judge me!

          • Ille Jay

            I guess I hadn’t noticed this much in retrospect, but in my city of residence, clubs have NEVER charged a cover (been here over a decade, was clutch in my 20s!)…now, literally this past summer, a few of the more “urban ” variety of clubs are asking for $10 & $20 a head, or for just guys, or some combination, etc. Has all us “old” heads in a tiffy…Millennials are with it. (They don’t know any better, nor remember those Golden days, is the joke.)

            Then an older cat (of color) told me he felt it was cause “blakk folk” are cheaper…that we drink a ton at home, then penny pinch at the bar/club so the urban spots have to recoup their money some way. while the 2520 bars are full of loaded college kids who buy it out. It sounded stereotypical,but as we know, stereotypes have some truth lined into them. *shrugs* one of those things, I guess.

            • cyanic

              People should drink at home.

              • Ille Jay

                Fiscally, Yes…Socially, its a tradeoff. It’s not fun (somewhat) if you aren’t pouring some bakk w/friends, plus, nillas’ go-to move is buy a drink…that ain’t happenin in the crib.

              • Kas

                There’s something to be said for walking in a spot completely sober with the anticipation of what the night will bring.

                • cyanic

                  I suffer from all sorts of social ills so I hate the club. And all the activities people wax poetic about can happen at home. In comfort and safety. Drunken group activities.

                  • Kas

                    I don’t miss those days, but I certainly enjoyed them. Being uncomfortable in crowds would definitely put a damper on things.

            • panamajackson

              Black folks charge at the door typically when there is a promoter involved. That way the promoter can take some of the door money and the venue keeps the bar. IF the promoters have a good percentage deal off of the bar, they’re likely to make it free as long as possible.

            • HoneyRose

              Um, that’s mad stereotypical. White kids pre-game too, sometimes as much as black kids. In my experience, though, white kids are more likely to pre game AND then drink MORE at the bar. They tryna get wasted; meanwhile in college me and my friends were trying to get a pleasant buzz on.

              Nobody wants to be dead sober when they show up at the clerb!

    • Whoomp There it is!

    • No free lunches.

    • panamajackson

      To be clear, I was saying that drinks are NOT all free for women, sexy or otherwise. As a former club manager and somebody who spent a lot of time in nightclubs, women may not pay for as many drinks as dudes do, but they’re paying for more drinks than not.

      • Vanity in Peril

        I was tryna humble brag that I don’t pay for drinks when I go to lounges but it’s usually because I only go places where I’m close w mgmt and I pre drink.

        I’m a tuuurible patron.

  • I saw somewhere a lady said “There’s one advantage to being 100. There’s no peer pressure.”. I love the fact that there is no one in my life who would even suggest going to “da clerb”. I don’t know why I thought the wristband thing was so clever.

    • So you’re not going to take me to the club Andie

      • I will be the ole lady in the clerb fer yer Ricky. What kind of car we rolling in? I gotta holla at Elon Musk about 1 of those clear joints.

      • Another thing. I missed the conversation about Steve McQueen cause I hadn’t started watching the show yet. Did people say they knew who he was? I thought everyone saw the Thomas Crown Affair at least.

        • Val

          Do you mean did VSBers know who he was? If so, most did.

          • Yeah. That’s what I thought. I was surprised Earn didn’t know.

        • I know Steve McQueen

        • Brooklyn_Bruin

          I don’t think VSS/VSB is representative of black folks as a whole. So us knowing the white McQueen isn’t that surprising. But the comment section of World Star Hip Hop might be a different story.

        • I gotta find someone who wants to do this. That would be sooo sick at night.

        • we got it

          • Wearable car tech. Is that a thing? It should totally be a thing.

            • I’m sure it’s being developed somewhere

  • I LOVED the fact that Darrius is Nigerian although he shaded Nigerians.. It was a very intelligent way to speak about the diversity of black in Atlanta… There is a huge African and Caribbean presence down there now…

    • Amen

      With Darrius being the least stereotypical Nigerian ever AND Shady Chris being an email scam personified…..i think my people are getting played lol.

      • Vanity in Peril

        The look Chris shoots Earn as he loses him in the crowd had me on the floor!

        • That trap door doe!!!!

          • Vanity in Peril

            I really need one of those irl.

          • TeeChantel

            He hit it with the swivel! Lol.

          • Mary Burrell

            The trap door was hilarious.

          • Yeah, that one too, lmao

        • That was a heIIuva move.
          << stage left!

      • hahaha…. Darrius being Nigerian made me love him more!! But you know some Nigerian parent is saying he is a disgrace..lol Shady Chris was worse than an email..hahaha

  • Amen

    That “nig*as know I drink juice” line almost ended me.

    • Ille Jay

      Yeah, that did it for me, and the slap with the money and dust flyin…were the highlights!

    • That is me. They know I drink juice

    • CY414 .

      i was completely out!!

      • Amen

        LOL it was perfect

    • BmoreLikeLA
