O'Hajee sees nothing but a dollar, and even though Myeke does everything he can to keep him out the streets, the fast money appeals to him, and he'll do whatever to get it, even if that means selling drugs to his own mother. But when he starts to feed the habit of one of his neighbors, he starts to realize he bit off more than he can chew. Will he be able to slow down and get his life on track before it's too late, or will he end up being another victim to the streets?
