Jaylen Johnson grew up in one of the roughest housing projects in Chicago and became a gangbanger. But because of his upbringing he beat the odds, quit the gangs and went on to college. When Jaylen came back to the hood, he became a police officer, hoping to make a difference. Because of his past he became a highly effective undercover cop.
Although he was one of the most successful plain-clothes officers in the housing projects, he felt like he was constantly losing ground to gangbangers intent on increasing drug dealing and gang recruiting. His main nemesis, Kwame, an ambitious, ruthless, on the rise druglord is Jaylen’s old running partner from back in the day.
One day after going to a young boy’s funeral Jaylen and his partner, Malik, go to a grammar school parking lot and confront a bunch of young gangbanger wannabes, goofing off and battle rapping. The kids pull out their camera phones in case of trouble. Two of the smart-alecky kids throwdown some hard rapping insults at the cops. Jaylen steps up, the kids brace themselves.
