Disgraced record producer Jackie Moreno wants to shepherd Mylene’s singing career. Boo-Boo plays a rare bootleg tape at a party, inviting trouble.

After a citywide blackout, Papa Fuerte takes a shine to mayoral candidate Ed Koch. Shao finds himself on the outs with Flash and tries to make amends.

The Get Down Boys apply their skills in a dicey situation as Zeke hurries to make a meeting. Mylene's quest for a contract takes an unexpected turn.

Dizzee has a new experience at a secret party in the city. As the guys gear up for an explosive DJ battle, Zeke boards a political rollercoaster.

Tensions between Shao and the boys threaten to destabilize the group. With her star on the rise, Mylene faces new expectations and pressures.

Zeke's Ivy League meeting goes off the rails. Ra-Ra has a bold proposition for Fat Annie, resulting in an explosive musical showdown at Les Inferno.

Confronted by ultimatums, Zeke and Mylene each must make a tough choice. Annie pitches a deal to a skeptical Shao and a resentful Cadillac.

Mylene has a fateful encounter with her idol, the Cruz family reaches a critical juncture, a revelation strikes Ra-Ra, and Shao takes rash action.

While the B-boy community rallies in defense of the get down, Mylene's musical fate hangs in the balance, and Zeke receives some life-altering news.

And I think you should bring him with you.
And to that, I say: Hell, no.
[scoffs] The last thing I need is that boy mess up my money.
I think it's a great way for him to learn about hard work.
[Ezekiel] You said you was gonna make a man out of me this summer.
- Oh, that's just a figure of speech.
- Yeah, and you always say: 'A man need to take initiative.
' What do you think he's doing? - Damn it.

So, Dizz, couch-duty update.
How much did you dig out of the cushions? So far, $1.
12.
Leave no stone unturned.

When we get another turntable and a mixer, DJ Boo Nasty gonna be chilling like a villain.
Y'all are stupid for real.
[Boo-Boo] Money's gonna be for our new DJ gear.
That's our thing now.
[Yolanda] Get a air conditioner with the money, Boo.
Man, we melting in here.

I'm happy to see you.
- Yo.
What's happening? - What's up, dog? - What's happening? It sucked.
- [Ra-Ra] How was the new job? Come here for a sec.
- Come here.
- [all] Ooh.
- Ezekiel.
- Stop, stop.
- Yo, hope your ass brought some money.
- Yeah, yeah.
Uh This is my life savings right here: 31 dollars and 18 cents.
- [Boo-Boo] Hey, you heard from Shao? - [Ezekiel] Let's just get the gear.
So, with Zeke's savings added up with mine, Dizz's and Boo's, that brings us up to - precisely $51.
- [Boo-Boo] But a system costs 600.
What's up? - Close your eyes.
- Why? Just close your eyes.
Open them.
I didn't wrap it, but it's yours.
It's for your poems for when your old book is done.
And it's got your initials.
I got it to say thank you for helping me with my song at the church.
- We were great, right? - Yeah.
We was all right.
Thanks.
Yeah.
Stanley, hottest day of the fucking year.
My AC shit the bed.
And all I can hear from you is protocol, decorum, diplomacy, patience.
- Delicacy.
- Jefe.
- Stan.
- There are people to please.
I'm happy to meet the guy.
But unless I'm meeting with the main guy, they come here to me! I don't go to them.
As it happens, here's my next meeting.
Stan, para fuera.
My man.
I'm dying to hear how this meeting went with this Asheton guy.
Well, he wants to cut a demo with Mylene immediately.
What? He don't wanna meet her? - He don't wanna hear her sing? - No.
Hold up.
This is great news, Jackie, but are you sure that's what he said? Hm? Because I did some looking into this Asheton guy and he's a serious dude.
And Marrakesh Star is a serious label.
Uh, look, Cisco, I I know where you're going, and um I'm not offended.
[chuckles] Jackie, I'm just saying you don't have to be afraid to tell the truth.
The truth? Okay, the truth is this: Here in the Bronx, around the card table, everybody knows that I know people, that I make records.
You know, I don't go around and advertise myself like a jerk off, you know? Once in a while, maybe, but you know, down in Manhattan, Cisco, on 6th Avenue, in the record business? People get in line to cut a demo on my say-so.
- That's good to hear.
- It is what it is.
Okay, so when do I get to meet with Roy Asheton? When do you get to meet Roy Asheton? Let tell you something about Mr.
Roy Asheton.
- Fuck Roy Asheton.
- ¿Qué tú 'tá hablando, tipo? - You just finished saying - Yeah, yeah.
Of course he wants to record Mylene.
- Of course he wants to sign her.
- So, what's the problem? The problem is you're my friend.
The problem is, in all honesty, Mylene is a big-time talent.
And she looks like a good, decent girl.
She is a good, decent girl, but I ain't following you.
Roy Asheton is the Grand Poobah of the record business because he makes a gazillion dollars a year screwing over every artist that he signs.
So, we get a hire a lawyer.
- We hire a music lawyer.
- He owns the lawyers.
They all do.
Look, I would love to get my debt to you off my plate, but I'm not gonna do it by fucking you over, you know? And the kid, Mylene, I can't do that.
I can't do that.
Que se joda Roy Asheton then.
We go to another label.
No, you don't get it.
They're all the same.
The artists sign a standard contract to record a demo.
The record company owns it.
If it pans out, they sign the act to a lowball contract and fuck every hit they can get out of them and, you know, and discard them the minute they drop out of the Top 40.
It's It's all set up.
It's just a rigged game.
The only good thing about Roy is that he's got the juice to make stars.
But what's the point if he owns it all? I'm only being honest with you, Cisco, because out of respect for you.
- And because your niece.
- Espera, espera, espera.
So, how about we record our own demo? You think you're the first guy to have that idea? No, no, listen.
We record our own demo.
You work your magic.
You make Mylene great.
And then we sell it to Asheton.
And we negotiate Mylene's contract from a position of strength.
We go to this Roy like like players, not paupers.
This is expensive.
There's no guarantees either.
How much? To do it right, 30, 40 grand.
[Francisco sighs] You come back in an hour.
Lopez is gonna have 40 large in a brown paper bag.
But this demo? I own it.
All of it.
And her contract too, if we get to sign.
And like you say, if this all pans out well then, of course, you get a taste.
Claro que sí.
My niece means everything to me.
Don't fuck this up, Jackito.
[rock music playing] Hot stuff [man over radio] New York City has the highest unemployment rate in America.
The music is mighty, mighty fine [kids squealing] [Ra-Ra] Look, we take our $51, and we leverage it.
Right? Convince Larry to put us on a payment plan.
All right? Ten percent down, $51 becomes $510.
And what we gotta avoid though, is predatory lending.
- 'Cause predatory lending - I have no idea what you're saying.
- No.
- I'm saying, if we play our cards right, we walk out of here with mixers, turntables, - maybe even speakers.
- I'm gonna wait inside, y'all.
'Inside' as in 'outside'? Shit.
In this heat? Yo, is it just me today, or is it like the Bronx is getting closer to the sun? [Larry] How can I help you guys? Certainly.
We're after that Clubman 1-1 mixer right there in the window.
And the turntable.
- My good man, about your payment plans - I gotta stop you right there.
For you guys, unfortunately, everything up in the front window is full-sticker price, or I can't help you.
- No, your sign says - Yeah.
It says 'easy credit.
' It doesn't say 'let me bend over, so you could easily fuck me,' right? - Excuse me? - Look, you guys seem like nice kids, but I got a business to run here.
And for the last six months, boys who look like you have been coming in here every day, saying: 'Larry, Larry, hook me up with your payment plan,' you know? And you know what they want? They want two turntables and a mixer.
Which is weird, right? And they're crying all the time, saying, you know, they need it.
You know, and they all have this look in their eyes.
- Like they're on some kind of drug thing.
- We are not gonna screw you.
Come on.
You know what? The other day some guy comes in here, all right? He's ten weeks behind on his payments.
He hands me a cassette tape.
He says, 'Look, it's worth $100.
It's rare.
It's dangerous to own.
' Dangerous? It's a fucking cassette tape.
So, I listen to it, right? It's garbage.
No one's singing.
There's nothing there.
It's boom, boom, scratching.
Boom, boom, scratching, scratching.
Over and over and over.
Look.
We'll We'll pay you $10 for it.
Sold.
There you go.
You come in here, you want something, you show me the money, I sell it to you.
You know, just don't fuck me.
[Annie] Clarence.
Have you located that boy Napoleon yet? Little spic motherfucker knows our hitman.
Ma, he's hiding out in Poughkeepsie.
I got my people on it.
- Well, don't keep me waiting.
- I'm on it.
Shit's done.

Put him to work.
Let him prove himself.
Make me proud.
Both of you.
You boys play nice.
[Shaolin] It's hot as hell this morning, huh? Step to me wrong once, I'll kill you.
Tell a soul what you doing with my mom, I'll kill you.
Breathe in my general direction, I'll kill you with pleasure.
Understood? Just trying to make some cash, man.
Is that a fact? Make this car disappear today.
Do it right, and there's $100 in it for you.
Then maybe we can talk family business.
Motherfucker.
[up-tempo rhythm playing] [Ra-Ra] Yo, we got a bootleg Grandmaster Flash tape, dig? So, what if we put a little party on? Yeah, I'll be Boo Nasty, pretend to play behind the wheels of steel.
[Dizzee] I don't know.
Is all this safe? [Ezekiel] That bootlegger did get stomped out at Flash's jam.
[Boo-Boo] We ain't bootlegged the tape.
We just gonna play it for a minute.
Charge a cover at the door and make some serious coin.
Trust me.
Flash will never find out.
- This could be the VIP area.
- Exclusive.
I like it.
Yeah, and we could serve Dizz's Kool-Aid punch and charge extra.
We gonna be making major motherfucking ducats, boy.
[Dizzee] The thing about the punch is, um, I took my last tab of lysergic acid diethylamide this morning, so Dizz, not the acid punch.
The one you spike with Bacardi 151.
Oh, okay.
The special punch.
First thing tomorrow morning, I wanna march into punk ass Larry's, put the money on the counter, - make him count it.

Decided to stop in.
See if y'all wanted to hit the Jamaican joint.
Get some new records.
Spin the whip.
- He's busy.
- This your girl? [Ezekiel] Didn't think so.
That's the one at Les Inferno that night, right? - Who are you? - [Ezekiel] He's a friend, Mylene.
- I told you about him.
- I'm Shaolin Fantastic.
But you can call me Shao.
Well, nice to meet you, Shao, but me and Zeke gotta get going now.
'Mylene,' right? Do you mind if I have a word with my wordsmith before y'all jet? Just talk about some business.
Music business.
Sure, but, you know, I got music business, too.
- The wack part.
- Excuse me? - That's what you do.
You sing, right? - Yeah.
That's what we call the wack part.
Wackness.
Bullshit.
- Right, Books? - 'Books'? Yeah.
That's his street name 'cause he's smart as hell.
Hold up, hold up.
Mylene, give us a minute, all right? [Dizzee] Yo, are we gonna tell Shao what happened with the Flash tape? [Ra-Ra] Nah, let's play it cool.
- [Ezekiel] What are you doing? - Look, I'm sorry for my absence, man.
Whatever happened to 'if you ever see me again, cross the street'? That fire had me shook up.
Brought back some, uh - some memories.
Some bad ones.
- I could understand that.
It's all good, though.
I'm back at it now.
And I got some cash coming in.
Enough to get a new system.
Maybe even before the end of the day.
We'll be back in business before you know it.
- Rocking the rhymes.
Clocking the beat.
- [Mylene] Yo, Ezekiel! I gotta go.
I'm gonna be late.
- What's with Malibu's car? - All right, look.
- Cadillac's paying me to dump it.
- Fuck that motherfucker.
I know.
I know, I know.
But it's good money.
We dump it come nightfall, we get paid.
Meantime, we got a whip to joyride, records to buy and some dope-ass weed to smoke.
My treat.
- [Mylene] Zeke.
- [Ra-Ra] Yo, what are we waiting for? - Don't wanna come between - [Ezekiel] She's not my girl.
- Look, I'm leaving.
Okay? - [Ezekiel] No.

- You're asking her to play you.
- Nah.
'Nah,' what? - I know how to play the game.
- See, that's your problem.
That's your problem.
Players always get played at the end.
Whereas Shaolin Fantastic - [up-tempo song plays] - he is the game.
- You dig me? He is the game.
- Yeah, I dig.

Civility, civil All right, what happened? Where's the coke? [boys] Oh, shit.
Where'd Manhattan go? [sirens wail in distance] [radio newscaster] A major blackout has struck New York City.
Ian Wallace of ConEd is standing by.
Ian, this looks to be one of the worst power outages this city has ever seen.
[Ian] Look, we're experiencing severe lightning storms.
That lightning took out power lines leading to the main generator, and the grid just couldn't handle it.
[reporter] Where were you when the lights went out? When the lights went out, I was in the movies, and it suddenly blacked out.
[Ian] At 9:34 pm, a complete power shutdown occurred.
[newscaster] Any idea when the power will be restored? [Ian] Just how long it will take to restore power, we simply cannot determine at this time.
[newscaster] We go to the streets for more on this.
[radio chatter continues] It is 'cause I messed up the song? Why you went all crazy like a maniac? No.
Not at all.
Okay, but you do think I'm talented, right, Mr.
Moreno? You're very talented.
Yeah, but do you think I'm talented enough to be a star, like, for real? How about you tell me.
Do you think you're talented? - Mm I don't know.
- 'I don't know' is for amateurs.
- You either know or you don't.
- Okay, but what's your opinion? That's my opinion.
What's your professional opinion? - My professional opinion? Well - Yeah.
Oh, Mylene It's time you know what everybody below 59th Street knows, which is this: Nobody gives a fuck about my professional opinion, you know? And even if they did, in order for me to have a professional opinion, I'd have to have a fucking profession, which I don't.
[switches radio off] But you're Jackie Moreno right? I was.
I was.
Not anymore.
I don't work for Marrakesh Star.
I haven't had a hit in years, you know? I'm fucking dead in this business, Mylene, okay? You know, I'm like a fugazi at this point, which means I'm a fucking fake.
- That's who I am.
- I'm sorry for your problems.
I am.
And I'm not gonna tell my uncle about none of this.
I appreciate that.
But will you then please help me find a real record producer and songwriter.
- You know, someone amazing, someone great.
- Someone great? I - I never said I wasn't great.
- I didn't mean it like that.
Let me tell you something.
A few years ago, not too long ago, I was driving a Rolls-Royce.
I had a Porsche.
You heard of the Grammys? - Yeah.
- I I got three of those.
Now I don't got nothing.
- You got me, right? - You I got you.
I got You don't even know if you're talented or not.
Look, Mr.
Moreno, I don't care if I'm talented.
I just wanna sing, - and I wanna get out of the Bronx.
- Mylene, this business isn't here to hold your hand.
Listen to me.
What we do here, it's fucking essential.
It's like oxygen.
When a When a true artist sings, they don't hold back nothing.
And it's When you sing like that, it raises the dead.
The world's dying of a thousand heart attacks.
We heal them up three minutes at a time.
That's [stammers] It's a goddamn public service what we do.
[stammers] That's the only reason to make music.
And if you You can't make music like that with doubts.
It won't work.
You gotta know.
I know.

So, fine.
I'll ask around.
I'll help you get another producer.
No, I don't want another producer.
I want you.

You say I don't love my brother.
I I've sacrificed my life for him.
I've sacrificed the only things that are dear to me.
You know that.
Don't make me lose my Mylene.
Please.
You see me as a bad man.
Hm.
Maybe I am.
But where it counts most I've been a man of my word.
Haven't I? Lydia, haven't I? You have, Franny.
You have.
The girls in the club I like to have a nice girl on my arm.
I like to have a dance every now and then.
That's true.
But I sleep alone, Lydia.
Every night since 1960.
Make no mistake.
I know.
That is for Ramon.
He He won't accept it from me.
Maybe you can slide it into the collection basket a little bit at a time.
Okay? Thank you.
I will make sure you never lose your daughter.
I will make sure my brother is looked after and that his familia stays intact.
I promise you that.
And I will close my eyes when my heart is crying.

I'm not sad or mad.
Fine.
Fine.

Shao, he showed me this music thing.
Yo, that's like the first time I felt fully alive.
And with the world burning to hell that meant a lot.
Up the ladder To the roof Where we can be [radio newscaster] A city rages in an unforgiving darkness.
A night of horror.
Thirty-six hours of darkness.
One hundred and fifty-five million dollars lost in business over 3000 arrests, 132 injured police officers, a thousand fires recorded.
For New York City, nothing will ever quite be the same again.
