You Got Served (2004) Script

That's you! Yeah, what?


Time!

Yeah! Now, that's what I'm talking about.

Yeah! I like it like this!

These two crews right here is what I call bad.

I'm talking bad as utter bad. But it's up to you to decide which crew walks away with this here $600 in the hat.

Okay, let's settle down! Let's settle down, now!

Now, by round of applause, you decide who the baddest crew is tonight.

Let's hear it for vick's crew.

What's up?

Let's go!

All right. Let's hear it for David and Elgin's crew.

Well, well, well.

Seems to me like the money in the hat goes to David and Elgin.

Yeah!

What you mean? Told you, boy!

That's what I'm talking about!

Vick, y'all did y'all thing out there.

No, that's twisted, man. We won.

No, no. Whoa, whoa, now, young blood.

Don't come up in here with all that disrespect.

That ain't how it work around here.

You heard the people. You lost.

Now, you don't like the result, you take yourself you take your little crew, you get to practicing you bring it back, we settle it on the floor like men.

Yeah.

All right, now. I don't want no trouble up in here.

That's what I'm talking about.

All right, Mr. rad.

Hey.

Y'all were off the chain tonight.

Yeah, y'all really hooked it up.

Thanks.

But you missin' one thing.

Really?

What's that?

Me and my girl toya.

She's the bomb.

We wanna get down with y'all.

Yeah, I seen her.

She tight.

So, what's your name?

Kiki.

Ten o'clock tomorrow. Practice.

We're gonna check you all out.

Cool. Cool. Thanks.

El, dog, we was on point tonight. They was feeling us.

I mean, can you imagine, when we blow up and we in front of thousands of fans?

El, what's up with you?

I'm tired of my mom always asking me what I'm gonna do with my life.

She working double shifts now because they went up on the rent.

It's messed up, because liyah got accepted into Princeton.

That's cool and everything, but even with the scholarship, she can't afford to go.

Now she's stuck at L.A. community college, working to save up.

This is killing me.

I saw emerald on the Shaw last night.

Gotta do what we gotta do.

Aha!

Ball up. Come on, baby.

I can't believe we back here, man.

Me neither, but it's just this once.

Deal? Deal.

All right, let's get up here.

So if it isn't my dancing delivery boys.

I knew you'd be back.

Your timing couldn't have been better.

My last kid had to retire.

He was running his mouth too much.

Let's hurry up and get this over with.

Look, we gotta work pretty late.

You might as well crash at my house tonight.

Cool. Come on.

Aka, I will break your legs.

Came out here. You know, he immediately...

Good morning, baby. Mama's late for work, I gotta run.

David and Elgin are asleep on the floor.

David?

Lord knows what time they got home.

Let them sleep in. They look tired.

And, liyah, baby, make them some breakfast.

It's a gift. You can't work on bouncing a ball off a guy's head.

You're not a kid working on that. It just comes to you.

He's a freak, a phenom.

He one of the tightest dudes up there.

Got a lot of crazy moves with the ball.

It was kind of hard to guard him, you know what I'm saying? He look--

Hi, David.

Liyah?

I didn't know where I was for a minute.

Well, sorry for waking you up.

Looks like you could use a cup of coffee.

So El tells me the crew's been winning every battle.

You know that's how we do. When's the last time you saw us?

I'm embarrassed to say.

I think that Christmas you did the show at the fox hills mall.

Dang, girl, that's messed up.

All work and school. No play.

You know how it is.

What?

There's something different about you.

Well, it's been, what, three years since y'all moved to Baldwin hills?

I don't know.

Stop.

You're bugging me out.

Well, I better get to work.

You want a ride?

No, that's okay I always walk.

No, I insist. Let me drive you.

No, really. I work right down in south central hospital.

It's the only exercise I get.

Dang, girl. With a physique like that, you must walk three or four times a day.

You are so crazy.

You can walk with me if you'd like.

Okay.

No, let me. Let me help you with that.

David? Yeah?

The door?

My bad. Right. My bad. Come on, girl.

Hello? Where you at?

Walking to work. You seen d?

Yeah, he's here. Put him on the phone.

Here. El wants to talk to you.

Hello. Hey, what you doing with liyah?

Calm down, man. I'm just walking her to work.

Look, some white kid out of the county gave me this tape last night after the show.

"Wade" or something.

You ever heard of him? Wade, Wade...

Yeah, he got a homeboy named Max.

Remember? They competed last summer in San Diego.

Anyway, I asked around, and he's supposed to be paid.

I'm talking cash money, millionaire paid.

Why'd he give you the tape?

I don't know, fool, I'm waiting to watch with you.

All right, I'm on my way.

So, I'm gonna get back.

Thanks for walking with me.

Maybe I'll see you soon?

What's up, man?

Hey, what was you doing with liyah?

Just talking. We haven't seen each other in a long time.

It ain't nothing.

Yeah, you right. It better not be nothing.

I'm saying, you my boy and everything.

When it comes to baby sis, I will hurt somebody.

Relax.

What's this?

This is an official challenge.

There's your answer right there.

This is the real. $5,000 challenge.

Did he just say $5,000?

We got this.

Y'all put up five grand, and we'll put up five grand. Your crew versus our crew.

We'll let you pick the place.

We'll even let you pick the time.

And as much as we don't wanna take your money the word is you're the best crew.

We have to show everyone who the best really is.

Come on, now. We gotta tell the crew.

We'll tell them tonight after the battle.

We're about to get this paper, dog.


All right, all right, all right. That's time.

It's time to see which one of these crews y'all like best.

How about these folks right here?

All right, all right, all right. What about this side here?

What's up? Take it to that bank!

It would seem to me like the money in the hat would go to your team.

But we have a little situation here.

David and Elgin's crew came up to me right before this kicked off and said:

"Look here, Mr. rad."

"We'd like to challenge them for double or nothing."

The question is...

Look at me. The question is, what you gonna do?

Ya'll work that out.

Sit down, take your time, work it out amongst each other.

Chatter, chatter, chit, chit, here we go.

Let's do it, yo.

Then it's on.


Time!

That's right! That's right!

Yeah, boy!

Gather round, gather round. Come on, come on.

That was hot, man.

I'm out. I'll catch up with y'all later. I got a date.

Hold up, rico. We've got to have a group discussion.

We just got a $5,000 challenge from some rich kid out of orange county.

Show me the money. What-what!

Marty, can you get Oscar to be down with us?

Man, you know he don't battle no more.

You think you could ask him anyway?

Yeah, I'll ask him. All right, cool.

Look, this is serious, y'all.

I'm talking practice every day, even on the weekend.

Y'all gotta be on point.

If y'all ain't down with us that night...

You don't get none of that money.

We gonna have to put money up?

Me and d will put up the money.

We gonna split 3,000 and y'all divvy up the rest. Cool?

I'm with it.

I'm down.

Yeah, I'm ready to get pizz-aid!

I'm not with it. I mean, why y'all two get 1,500 each?

We a crew. Win or lose as a team.

They're putting the money up. That's true.

So? They getting it back.

It's like y'all making money off of us.

Sonny, why you tripping?

We gotta put the money up to practice in the gym.

I think we should split the whole 5,000.

Then you put up 5,000 for the battle.

And when we win, we'll all split it.

That's what I thought.

So, y'all wanna do this?

Yeah! Let's do it!

All right, I'm about to go get our winnings from Mr. rad.

All right. What a night.

Hey, rico. What's up, lil Saint?

Y'all was the bomb, for sheezy.

When y'all gonna let me get down with you?

Never, punk. You can't even move.

Rico, why you hang out with this little knucklehead thug anyway?

He ain't sh--

Look, dog. Why don't you mind your business?

He got everybody hating on him. It won't happen in front of me.

Sonny, you can't say nothing about lil Saint to rico.

He'll kill somebody over him.

Hey Ric, I know he worships the ground you walk on.

But I ain't gonna lie, he is a little badass.

And he does dance like a white boy.

I'm out of here. Come on, son. Let me take you home.

Who's hungry?

Let's bounce. Let's bounce. I'm hungry.

Man, that battle was crazy. All right, cool.

Hi. I told you I would see you soon.

Congratulations. I was at the battle.

I would have showed off if I knew you was coming.

Wait, David. I been knowing you all my life.

You think I like you or something?

No, but-- Because I do like you.

And the moment you all have been waiting for.

Beautifull has arrived.

Wait. Hold it.

Is this Mr. man?

How you doing? Ouch, girl. He's hot.

David, this is my crazy best friend, beautifull.

And that's with two I's.

You got to accentuate the I's, you know?

Let it roll off your tongue.

Beautifull. Yes.

Nice to meet you. Nice to meet you too.

What's up li, what you doing here?

I got somebody to work for me.

You shouldn't be missing work.

You shouldn't be all up in her mix.

Yo, d, we gotta bounce. Where you going?

None of your business. Come on.

All right, see y'all later.

Bye.

Your brother's cute.

Look, man, this the last time.

You said that last time.


Look--

Whatever. I don't want to hear it.

Y'all put up five grand, and we'll put up five grand. Your crew versus our crew.

Straight up. We'll let you pick the...

Hey, rico.

Hey, y'all hold up, all right?

What's up, little man?

Hey. Hey, can I play? Can I play, please?

Next time. Man.

Go chill over there.

When I'm done, we'll get some ice cream.

All right. All right. For sure.

Come on, y'all.


Travel. Travel. What?

Travel. What, y'all blind? He traveled.

Quit crying. This is street ball.

Still cheating.

When you gonna learn? Can't battle us on stage or the court.

No matter what, we'll spank you. We got all this right here.

All this around here, player.

Except for the girls. I was with yours last night.

Ball up. No basket. We going back this way.

Here we go. Come on, y'all.

Get up. Get up. Get up.

Yeah! Whoa!

Party! Keep the game going. I'll be back.

Yo, we were surprised to hear from you.

Why?

Didn't think you wanted a beating.

We don't get beat. Okay.

This should be fun.

Next Saturday night, the warehouse, 11.

What's so funny? Your crew, man.

Y'all need a week? These kids need a whole week.

To what, practice? See, my crew, we don't practice.

We just do it. So do we.

So do it. We'll do it.

Tonight then, baby boy?

Tonight it's on. And I ain't your baby boy.

Mr. rad's warehouse.

Y'all suckers just make sure y'all there by sundown.

Just bring the five g's, all right, man?

That's right. We'll see who the sucker is.

Hey, yo, d. Man, I gotta talk to you.

What's up?

What'd you get into?

Look, we battling Wade and his crew tonight.

What? Man, they try to clown us, d.

They said we're scared.

I ain't scared. You? Hell, no.

Then what's stopping us from taking they money tonight?

Nothing. Except we don't have five g's to put up.

I got about two g's saved up from emerald.

How much you got?

About 1,500.

Come on, man. You know I had to hit up the mall, man.

So we got 3,500.

How we gonna get 1,500 by tonight?

I'll get the money. You just get the crew together.

You crazy.

But I always got your back, man.

For sure.

That's what I like.

Grandma.

Hey, baby. Grandmama's heart. Come give me some sugar.

How you feeling today, grandma? Well...

Got arthritis in my leg. Threw my back out at bingo...

Because you know when I win, I do my little dance.

Blood pressure's up and I think I done caught the gout.

But as you know, I ain't one to complain.

How are you?

Okay, I guess.

What?

Something's wrong. I feel it.

You having sex? Now, come on, grandma.

I diapered it. I can ask about it.

It's nothing like that. I came by to say hi. That's all.

You talk to your grandmama. Right now.

I need to borrow some money.

Tell me what you need the money for. And don't lie to me.

This crew tried to chump my crew today.

And I wasn't having it, so I told them we'll battle tonight.

That's that pride talking.

You got that from your granddaddy.

How much money you talking about? 1,500.

That's a lot of money.

Granddaddy also taught me never to give up either.

You're a smooth talker like him too.

Well, let me see what I got in my stash.

These kids sure get crazy.

Here they come. Yeah!

I thought you said Sonny was gonna meet us.

I told him I would pick him up, but he said he had a ride.

I'm gonna call him at his house.

D, man, we can't afford to lose.

We never lose. Why start now?

Hey, he not picking up. He'll be here.

Mr. rad.

What you say, young blood?

How you feeling? Good.

It's a beautiful day in Mr. rad's neighborhood.

It's $5,000, man.

Kind of reminds me of the good old days.

We used to race each other for a quarter.

I win that quarter, we all be down at the store licking on the same popsicle.

Here's the money. Well...

Well, now. This is a little more money than will fit in my hat.

So I got a little friend of mine I'd like for y'all to meet up.

Mr. Chuck.

Mr. Chuck here is l.A.P.D.

Ooh.

He's off-duty.

He's just here to make sure that everything goes accordingly.

Mr. Chuck, why don't you show everybody what you're working with.

Damn.

Everybody good with that?

Fine. Thank you, there, Mr. Chuck.

We'll keep this whole thing nice, fair and square.

This a lot of money we talking about.

But money ain't the most important thing.

Friendship is the most important thing.

So no matter what happens, win, lose, or draw, we gonna be friends after this.

There will be no fighting.

We understand each other?

Yeah. Yeah.

All right, let's do this.

Hey you guys, Sonny's here.

What's up, Sonny? Yo, Sonny!

Yo, Sonny, what's up, man?

Yo, Elgin, I forgot to tell you. We got a surprise guest.

Go ahead, David!

Man, d. You peeping this, man? They're taking all our moves.

That's our move right there.

That's your move right there.


What?

That's your move right there. He sold us out.

Sonny sold us out.


You all right? Look what they're doing to it.


Get back!

What's the matter with you?

I said, in the beginning, no fighting!

You don't come up in here with all that!

Now we gonna do this the right way!

All right, now, by round of applause.

All right, I've got it. I said, I got it. I got it!

That's right, baby.

Let's do this again sometime.

We'd love to take your money.

Again.

Back over there. Get back!

But this ain't fair. Y'all cheated. Y'all stole our moves!

You just mad.

Because tonight you suckers got served.

Get your head up. You lost the money. It's gone.

You can't lay around in your misery too long.

Do not walk out of this place and start to second-guess your talent.

You got your ass whupped tonight.

But I done seen y'all whup many a ass right in this same place.

Now you lost. Tell you something my father told me.

Is if it don't kill you, it make you stronger.

I can't take this tonight, man.

El. El.

Sonny gonna get his. Don't worry about that.

Let's go.

Tell me last night didn't happen.

It happened.

Damn. Tell me Sonny didn't dis us and Wade didn't play us for $5,000.

We can make some of that money back tonight.

I called emerald. He said we could roll through.

That's straight. I'm still bugging, though, d.

How the hell'd we lose five g's in 10 minutes, man?

What was we thinking?

Y'all just didn't know Wade and his boys were so shady.

Man, I know I didn't.

Y'all looking for a new man?

What about your crew?

Don't want to battle if they don't win.

So what's up, El? D? Can I be down?

Sure, man. Cool, cool.

Yo, ball up.

D! Teams? Y'all not on teams, man.

I'm gonna head out, man.

I gotta do something before we hook up tonight.

What time will you swoop me up? I'll meet you there.

What? I'll meet you there.

I'm always on time, player. 10:00, all right?

Whatever.

Hey, could you spot me a 20, dog?

I don't got it.

Man, all I got is $10.

That's straight. See y'all later, man.

Let's do it. Y'all wanna run threes?

Who you blowing your horn at? Hey.

We are ladies, okay?

You are supposed to say, "excuse me, miss."

It's David. I know.

Excuse me, miss. How are you today?

Now you see? That was much better.

What are you doing here?

I came to pick up my girl from work.

And you? What you doing here? Where you going?

Wherever my man wants to take me.

Okay, then.

So, beautifull, you need us to drop you off anywhere?

I push my own wheels. Thank you. Have fun.

Hello?

What's up, rashann?

Yeah. Yeah, man, I'm cool.

Hey, let me call you back, though, all right?

Sorry.

Everybody still tripping off of Sonny and the battle.

I hate that I can't do anything to cheer you up.

No, this is good.

Hello?

What's up, Marty?

I'm gonna call you back, all right?

All right.

Now, what were you saying?

Something like you was all in love with me?

I didn't say that. No, but you was thinking that.

Hold on, hold on. Come on, dog!

Damn.

Yeah?

I need you and your partner to come through earlier.

Earlier? How early?

Now. Now? Come on, I need a minute.

Want me to give the job to somebody else?

No, no, no. Look, I'll be there.

Just--

Hello?

What's up?

I gotta get up out of here, vick.

I'll holler at you later, dog.

Let's go, ball up!

D, come on, man, where you at?

I know you did not turn off my phone.

Yes, I did. No more calls.

You're with your boys every day.

And when you're with me...

You're all mine.

I see you got attitude.

I like you.


That's a lot of merchandise, player.

We can handle it.

Where's your partner?

He has something to do. He gonna meet me at the spot.


Come on, d. Pick up, man. Pick up.

Damn. Yo, d, it's El, man. Where you at? I'm at the spot.

Look, plans got moved up.

Hit me back soon as you get this, all right?

Better yet, just come the hell on, man!


Dang, it's dark outside. What time is it?

I was supposed to hook up with your brother.

Eight messages? Dang, somebody blowing me up.

It better be your boys.

Hello?

What?

Who is it? Is he all right?

All right, tell him to sit tight. I'm on my way.

El! El, are you okay?

Yo, El, we came as soon as we heard.

So now you want to show up?

Don't say nothing to me. I don't want to hear it.

What happened?

You left me hanging tonight.

That's what happened! What?

Hooking up with my sister was more important.

No-- Shut up, liyah!

Just so you know...

We ain't cool...

We ain't boys and we ain't nothing.

I swear on my momma you ain't getting with my sister.

I don't wanna hear it. I turned off his phone.

I could be dead right now!

You gonna stand here and take up for him?

Liyah, go home and stop acting like a ho!

Hey! Keep it down.

Don't be talking to her like that.

Whatever I say to her ain't got nothing to do with you.

Get out my face, d!

Hey. Hey. Hey. You all are gonna have to leave.

I'm out.

My man is tripping. El is on--

Tell me you wasn't gettin' busy with his sister and left him?

I don't roll like that.

I'm sorry, dog, but you do, man.

I mean, you did it with dawn, shandrella...

And you did it with the triplets--

You killing me. It's true, though.

You always leave us hanging. Not this time.

I wouldn't do it.

And liyah just ain't some girl.

I'm out, man. Out. D.


Why are you sitting here in the dark?

Thinking.

About what?

About a lot.

I can't play ball.

Can't get with my crew.

All because my leg is messed up.

This ain't gonna never be the same.

Well, sitting up in here for three days straight, mad at the world, isn't gonna change anything.

And, El...

You really need to call David.

That's crazy. I'm caught out because of him.

Why do you keep blaming him? He was hooking up with you when he should've taken care of business.

But I already told you-- But nothing!

Emerald don't give a damn about why David didn't show up.

All emerald cares about is the stuff that I got jacked for.

Liyah, where am I supposed to get the money to pay emerald back?

Maybe David can talk to emerald.

He wants to help.

I don't need nobody to do nothing for me.

I'll handle emerald.

And how you know David wants to help?

Didn't I tell you to stay away from him?

Elgin, don't start. He's playing you, liyah.

Now, stay away from him!

Yo, d, lil Saint keep bugging me about joining the crew.

Little man can't dance. I could work with him.

Or he could be, like, our mascot.

Yeah. That's a good idea. What you think?

I'm cool with that. Call him over here.

Hey, lil Saint, come here.

What's up, Ric? He is so cute.

You one of us now, Saint.

Congratulations. For real?

That's right. You in the crew now.

Yeah, rico, I'm just like you now.

No cursing, no hustling, and no more getting in trouble.

No running with them dudes you've been with.

Yeah, Saint, them dudes you running with ain't safe.

It's my word. Okay. Practice, 6:00 tomorrow.

All right, boy. Get out of here.

All right, Saint, man.

Has anybody talked to El? No, he won't accept my calls.

Mine either.

I been trying to reach out to him.

Everybody's talking about you and El's beef.

Man, forget that. I'm talking about your Oscar hookup.

Is he gonna be down with us or what?

I told you. He ain't into battles no more.

Man, he's into the pureness of the art.

He's all spiritual and whatnot.

If there's anything we can do to get him, holler.

I'm about to go shoot some hoops. You wanna come?

No, I'm good. I'll catch up with y'all later.

For sure. All right, man.

Come on, Saint.

Your boy is really tripping. Did you tell him I called?

Yes, but he bugs out every time I say your name.

We been boys for too long for it to end like this.

Please don't tell him I told you...

But El's in trouble.

When the guys jumped him, they took emerald's stuff.

I thought it happened before he got to emerald's.

Can you please talk to emerald? Talk?

There ain't no talking to that man.

I gotta help El get this money.

And I was supposed to be with him that night.

Liyah, what you doing here? Hey, you tripping!

Brother what's up?

El, I'm tired-- Don't disrespect me!

You disrespect me by putting your--

Go home!

What's wrong with you? You lost your damn mind!

We were trying to figure out how to help you.

And you come in here and pull this?

Move.

Liyah!

Here you go.

You know what they say:

Hot choco-latte make the pain go away.

Who says that? Me.

Anything's that hot and chocolate, girl, you know you can't go wrong.

I can't believe Elgin put his hands on you.

I would have took my shoe off and did damage.

Things are so messed up. You think?

There ain't no thinking about it, girl, you in love.

I mean, David is not like these other Joes you been kicking it with.

And beautifull is here to keep it real with you.

This is that Mary j. Blige, real love.

Remember, I was like this with my boo.

You call all of your men "boo".

Russell boo?

Remember, he was my first love.

Then there was Toby boo.

And now, Lamar. He's my boo.

But what I'm saying is, I know what real love looks like.

Okay?

And you in love, child.

And you know what?

You can stay here as long as you need to.

You know you my girl and you know that I got you.

Thanks, b. You're welcome.

Now, I'm gonna get my makeup kit...

And we gonna have a girls' night, have some fun.


I'm gonna get your money back soon, grandma.

Shush.

I'm just glad you're alive, thank the lord.

I can't believe-- Grandma. Hi.

Hey, if it ain't my future doctor. How's school?

I could have done better on my exams, but I had a lot going on.

You always make me proud.

I'm worried about you and your brother.

What's this your mama tells me about you not speaking?

Look here. Whatever's going on, I want it to stop right now.

Do you understand? Start talking.

He hit me. No, I didn't!

Have you lost your mind?

You know better than to put your hand on any woman.

Tell her she better stay away from David.

I'm gonna see him.

Do it and see what I do to him.

Wait, you know what?

You win, okay?

So I won't see him. You happy?

For sure.

I hate you.

Liyah, baby...

Sit your ass down.

Now, you leave that girl alone.

I'm not telling you you can't protect your sister.

But if she's making a mistake, you got to let her make it so she can learn from it.

Do you understand?

I asked you a question, Elgin Barrett Eugene Smith III.

Do you hear me?

Yes, ma'am.

Okay, then.

I gotta get going.

Come on and walk an old woman out to her car.

My feet feel so swollen it's like walking on water.

Bye, baby.

I heard you got a beat-down.

Yeah, I got jacked.

Look, I was gonna call you soon as I got your money.

I didn't want to disturb you until then.

I called you 10 times...

And you don't return my call?

No. I mean, yeah, I was going-- Now you want to talk?

I didn't tell you to talk!

I'll talk. You listen!

I mean, I don't know where you're gonna get the money from to pay me back.

But I do know you'll make a Valiant effort in that regard.

Am I right?

Now you talk.

Right.

I could work it off.

Your days as a carrier for me are over.

How do I know you didn't set this up yourself to get my money?

Look, I didn't even know-- Hey, I don't trust nobody!

In my eyes, you're guilty until proven innocent.

I want my money.

I'll get you your money.

Now, that's what I wanna hear.

I'll even let you tell me when you can get me my money.

Six months?

I usually say 24 hours.

But since your partner called me and begged me to leave you in one piece...

I'm gonna give you a few weeks.

Don't play me, El.

You do...

You'll never walk...

Let alone dance, again!

Now, excuse yourself.


Yo, d!

Marty, work with them.

What's up what's up, man?

Your new crew's wack! Where did you get them from?

Why you busting my crew out, man?

Go sit down.

Hey, Ric, man, you taking this loyalty thing a little too far.

I mean, if you got down with me and Marty, El won't care.

I need you.

We'll be up against another crew in a few days.

Don't you wanna make some money?

I'm always down to make money, but I can't.

I saw El the other day. He got a new crew too.

Word?

Yeah, and I'll tell you like I told him.

It just don't feel right.

I mean, you and El is like Shaq and Kobe.

Together y'all do damage.

It ain't the same when one's not in the game.

Look, y'all both my boys, but if I can't never get the old crew back...

Me and Saint just might have to do our own thing.

The way El's acting, I don't think we ever gonna be cool.

Look, man, let me get back. All right?

All right, man.

Yo, Saint, let's roll.


You and me. Right now. Look, look.

That ain't even cool, man.

It don't matter.

Let's bounce.

Yo, d.

What's up, Ric? What's up, big player?

Chilling. That Jersey's tight, Saint. Where'd you get that?

Rico got it for me.

Rico take good care of you, don't he?

Yep.

Watch out, man.

I ain't gonna have much more of you swinging.

If you hadn't left him out in the cold--

I didn't. This between me and my boy.

He ain't your boy.

Chill, vick. Why you trying to start something?

What you wanna do? Yeah, what you wanna do?

Hold up. This ain't going down.

Y'all mad at the wrong people.

Y'all need to throw that hate towards Wade and them.

All I'm saying is, you need to find the love again, because this here, it ain't right.

Come on, Saint. We out.

Yeah, we out.

What's up, Ric? The big bounce.

That's what's up. Man, check this out. Read this.

$50,000?

Yes, man. Just enough money to change our lives.

Look, a chance to be in a music video.

I'm talking about putting some kids on the map.

And getting paid. Yes, man, it's ours.

Tailor-made for us, El.

God knows I been praying for something like this.

I owe emerald a lot of money, man.

And this could be my only way to pay him back.

And I could pay my grandmama back.

Man, I gotta win.

Yeah, we can win.

But you gotta get David in-- Ain't no David, man.

You think Wade and his crew gonna get in?

You know they are.

They already saying the big bounce is theirs.

No, not this time.

Wade ain't getting this. This is mine.

$50,000?

And a shot to rock a music video.

We gotta do it with the old crew.

Rashann, Saint, El-- What?

No, man. I'm tired of El dissing me.

I'm gonna win this money, then I'm gonna break him off something so I don't owe him nothing.

But that's just the way that story ends.

I'll catch up with you. 50,000!


Hey, what's up, y'all? I'm la la from mtv, and I'm chilling at the L.A. convention center, in sunny Southern California. I'm surrounded by crews.

It is the semifinals of the big bounce competition.

It has been off the hook for real, for real, and I'm gonna keep you updated all day on what's going down.


Mr. rad, come here. I want you to meet my friend, beautifull.

Hey, beautiful.

That's beautifull with two I's.

Nice to meet you.

So, what's going on with David and Elgin out here?

I been trying to talk to these two knuckleheads.

I can't seem to get through to them.

They need to stop all this messing around.

Wait a minute, are y'all feeling this right now?

I'm talking about the hottest crews from Los Angeles, California competing for $50,000!

Do y'all hear me? $50,000 for real!

Mr. rad, I'm really worried about Elgin.

Liyah.

Now, I've known you kids around this neighborhood all your life.

There's one person that you can talk to around here, that's Mr. rad.

Now, come on.

Elgin owes emerald a lot of money and--

This ain't nothing you need to worry your pretty self about.

Because I done took care of that already.

But how--? I got a friend, Mr. Chuck and neither David nor Elgin have anything to worry about.

Let's just say that...

Mr. emerald has had what they call a little change of heart.

But how did you know--?

Mr. rad knows everything...

That goes down in Mr. rad's neighborhood.

And I took care of that.

Thank you.

We should tell David and Elgin. They're freaked out about it.

No, no, no. Let's just let them keep on freaking out.

That'll be good for them.

Maybe they'll get some sense into their heads.

Because if they don't pull it together, little Wade or whatever his name is, he gonna walk away with this money again for sure.


Here's the deal. 10 crews were in the house today, but only five are gonna make it to the big bounce finals tomorrow.

And I just found out the winners are gonna appear in multi-platinum recording artist--

Y'all ain't ready. Lil' Kim's video.

My god!

Hey, there go Dave's crew right there.

Let's go, d!


That's a damn shame.

Where your boy Saint? Ain't he supposed to be here?

He, like, the little mascot, ain't he?

Yeah, for sure, but I ain't seen him all day.


Man! I'm la la.

I'll be back tomorrow for the finals, so stay tuned.

I knew you'd be here.

Yeah, what's up, stranger?

So is there any brains on that menu or some straight up common sense you can order?

Not now.

When? Someone needs to let him and El know how ridiculous they're being.

I'm gonna get with a crew myself and make me a video and get some money.

B? What?

Can you give us a minute, please?

You want me to go sit at a table by myself looking all lonely and whatnot?

Yes. I'll be over there soon.

Fine.

I came here to make sure you were okay.

I'd be a lot better if we were together.

Look, I'm not trying to stress you.

My crew lost to El.

Even with all our drama, something in me was cool with it.

I hope he wins.

I know he needs it.

Dave, you seen rico?

I think he's with El and vick.

We got to find Ric. Saint got shot.

What? My god, no! What happened?

He was riding with lanky and bug and some dude sprayed the car.

How is Saint? Is he okay?

I don't know. He got hit twice, but the hospital ain't tryin' to give him no info.

We gotta find Ric. Come on.

I'm going with you. No. I don't feel like dealing with your brother, okay? Trust me.

Miss, I'm looking for my little brother.

What's his name? Teshawn Miller.

We call him lil Saint. Yeah.

Teshawn's family left about an hour ago.

He's not really my brother, but blood couldn't make us any closer.

Look, we need to see him, okay?

You fellas wait in the waiting room.

Come on, y'all.

How's Saint? Did you see him yet?

Not yet. There anything we can do?

No. We just wanna see Saint.

We're waiting to see teshawn.

Kids, I think you should talk to teshawn's family.

Doc, no disrespect, but we are teshawn's family.

All right?

I can appreciate that, but-- But what?

What, do you want it in writing? What do I have to tell you?

I mean, he eats in my crib, I buy him clothes, I keep him out of trouble.

I'm closer to that kid than anybody.

Just let me go in, all right?

I just wanna let him know I'm here.

I know he's looking for me.

Look, we'll all wait out here if you could just let rico go in, doc.

Please.

Look, I'm sorry to have to tell you this but teshawn died a few hours ago.

What? A bullet...

Pierced his lung and caused severe internal bleeding.

We tried to contain it. We tried to revive him.

He didn't come back.

There's nothing more we could do.

I'm so sorry.

No, man! Just let me go!

Let me go, man!


What's up, Ric? What's up?

How you holding up, man?

I'm all right.

El, I been thinking, though.

I was always going on to lil Saint about how important friendship is and how you gotta look out for your family and friends.

You know what he would say?

He said, "like Elgin and David do?"

El, I wanna be in the competition.

Look, you know you can get down with me and my crew.

I don't wanna just get down with your crew. I wanna win.

That's what I'm talking about. We're gonna get this paper.

It's about more than money.

Look, I wanna be the man lil Saint thought I was.

Hasn't losing lil Saint made you realize that life is too short for all of this?

We need David and we need to do it as a team.

Look, we don't have David. You could.

I told him to come over here so I could talk to him.

I told you were over at grandma's.

You mean, you and Ric set me up?

Look, you call it what you want, man, but we need to end this now.

Hey, d. What's up?

What's up, Ric? What's up?

I stopped by lil Saint's mom's earlier.

She not doing too good.

I know. I just came from there.

Why am I here?

We want you and El to stop the madness.

El, I wish you the best of luck, all right, bro?

Stop being so stubborn and at least listen!

Ain't nothing to talk about. This ain't gonna happen.

This feud is stupid, selfish and it affects a lot of people.

Rico and the crew have been down with y'all for years.

Don't they deserve the chance to win this competition?

And you're always talking about how you're gonna help mama.

If you win this, you could help her.

You're not gonna win this competition without David and you know it.

Come on, y'all, let's just do it for lil Saint.

I mean, he loved the crew.

If he'd been in the battle with one of y'all crews, he wouldn't have been in that car with his homeys.

He'd be here right now.

But the rules say the crews are locked down.

And you gotta compete with whatever crew you started with.

Dang, that's messed up.

Look, I'm sorry, Ric.

David ain't getting down with my crew, no matter what.

Wish your brother good luck for me.

What's up, what's up?

This is la la from mtv. Check it out.

Do you see all these people? This is not a joke.

It is day two, the finals of the big bounce competition.

Five of the dopest crews are left and only one crew is going home $50,000 richer and only one crew is gonna get to appear in lil' Kim's new video.

Hey, guys, look what we have here.

Whatever.

Yo, you're not gonna use them tired-ass moves again are you?

You funny now, but you won't be when we get on the floor.

Yeah, we'll see who gets the last laugh.

Do you think you know who's gonna be the hottest, hottest crew in Cali?

Stay tuned right here to find out.

What's up, vick? What's up, El?

She just needed the official name for the crew. So what'd you tell her?

Hey, yo, man, we fit though, we gotta get busy, man.

Where the kneepads at? I got them right here.

Y'all ready? Look at this.

All right. All right. You ready?

Sure, I'm ready.

Yeah!

Make some noise!

Yes.

Ladies and gentlemen. Man, y'all are in for a treat.

Whichever crew wins today, you're gonna wanna remember their faces because the next time you'll see them will be in lil' Kim's hot new video.

Give it up for lil' Kim!

Now, for those of you who don't know, my name's Wade Robson.

Thank you.

Now, I've choreographed some of the hottest videos ever to hit mtv.

I've worked with artists such as Britney Spears, nsync, pink, Mya, he's so cute!

Usher, he tight!

But I've never seen anything like what these crews have done here, okay?

So I want y'all to give it up for Wade's crew.

Settle down, settle down, settle down, settle down.

All right, next up, we got bug and his boys.

We got the furious females!

The pomona pit bulls!

Last but not least, the lil saints.

Yes!

So without further ado, ladies and gentleman, it's showtime!

Yo, yo, yo, this is wild. This is the bomb!

It's about to get crazy up in here!


Now, this right here is what I call a real competition.

I'm so glad I'm not one of those judges.

This is gonna be a really tough call.


Yeah!

Yeah!

Settle down, settle down.

Man, this is gonna be a really tough decision.

All the crews were incredible, right?

Give them some love! They deserve it.

Let's see what the judges think.

That's ridiculous. You can't do that.

What is this?

All right, everybody.

Listen up.

All the crews were hot.

They all did their thing.

But it looks like we've got ourselves a tie.

Well, the winners are, both Wade's crew and the lil saints.

That's wack. We ain't tied with these busters.

You're right, because we're better than you.

Man, better than you'll ever be.

Look, listen to me.

You cannot do this to these boys.

This ain't just a prize to these boys out here.

This is bigger than that.

This is Tyson and holyfield to them.

You gotta pick a winner.

He's right.

I'm feeling you, but what do you want me to do?

These dudes are gonna fight.

What did I tell you? Get over there!

Wait a minute! What's the matter with you?

Look, little miss Kim, trust me on this.

You have got to let these boys battle it out.

Listen, this how it work. This is crew against crew.

Just like we do it on the streets.

Streets? Just like that.

See, now you're talking.

That what I'm talking about. Yeah.

All right, everybody.

We decided to take it to the streets!

These two crews are gonna battle it out for you, straight street-style.

Listen up, y'all tear this mother up.

Get grimy and dirty.

Straight street.

How street you want us to get?

You know how I like it, baby.

Straight hood.

No rules?

Hell, no. Just do the damn thing. No rules.

So, what, y'all adding people to the party?

What, you got a problem with it?

Hey.

I'm cool. Remember, no rules.

Let's do this!

Hey, Oscar, what's up, man? Thanks for coming.

Thought you didn't battle no more.

This isn't about the battle.

It's about lil Saint and your crew, man.

It's all love.

Hey, Marty, what-what? What-what.

Yeah.

Let's go, let's go! We got this.

Still missing one by my count.

All right, let's do this.

No, we got it. El.

Come on, let's bury this and let me help you out there.

Look, El, it's either David and all of us or it's none of us.

El, remember, man, we're a team.

Let's do this.

Okay, here's how it's gonna go down.

The beat will play for five minutes.

When I yell "stop," that's it.

Then, the audience will decide who's gonna take home the money and who's gonna be in my new video.

So may the dopest crew win.

Dj, drop it like it's hot.

All right, listen up, y'all. Listen up, y'all.

God, now that lil Saint's with you, we ask you to bless him.

We ask you to bless our family, our friends, our crew.

Give us the strength that we need to win this battle.

Amen!

In your name we pray. Amen.

Lil Saint, this one's for you, baby! Let's go!


Whoa!


Woo, hoo, hoo, hoo!

Back off, back off, back off!

Woo! Ha-ha!

You can't beat us.

Yeah! That was insane.

Man, that's love.

All right, settle down, settle down. Settle down.

Settle down!

Settle down.

Man, both crews were incredible. It's ridiculous.

Damn, my heart's beating fast too. That was crazy.

Listen, right now we're about to find out who's the best crew on the scene.

First up, I want y'all to give it up for Wade's crew!

Okay, okay. Nice. Settle down a little bit.

Next, the lil saints!

Yeah! All right. All right.

All right, settle down! Settle down.

All right.

Lil' Kim and myself would like to present the lil saints with the big bounce $50,000 award!


You did it, man. No, we did it.

El, my boy.

Congratulations!

Holler.

That's all you got for your girl?

Yo, this is bullshit, man. We had you.

This ain't over yet. It is now, baby boy.

Y'all just mad. Because today, you suckers got served.

Served. Served.

Served! Served!

Served! Served!

Served! Served! Served! Served!

Served! Served! Served! Served!

My god! My god! The lil saints have won $50,000!

I'm la la! I'm out of here! Peace, y'all!
