# Cos we all just want to be big rock stars

0:19:250:19:28

# And live in hilltop houses driving 15 cars

0:19:280:19:32

# The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap

0:19:320:19:35

# We'll all stay skinny cos we just won't eat

0:19:350:19:38

# And we'll hang out in the coolest bars... #

SHE GIGGLES

0:19:410:19:43

-Nashauna, man!

-You're going to flood the house.

-Out!

0:19:430:19:47

Dirty thief, that's my phone.

0:19:470:19:49

-Allow it, man, I wanted to listen to the tune.

-I'm telling.

0:19:490:19:52

Shauna, I promise I'll give it back when I'm leaving.

0:19:520:19:55

And don't be bringing any crazy girl to the yard.

0:19:550:19:58

Who do you think you are? Mum or something? Get out, man.

0:19:580:20:01

# I want to be a rock star. #

0:20:010:20:04

Man's gotta come correct.

0:20:050:20:07

I'm not your common hood rat.

0:20:070:20:09

And rock has some good tunes, boy, some bangers.

0:20:090:20:14

# So I can eat my meals for free

0:20:140:20:16

# I'll have the quesadilla, ha-ha

# Get a front-door key to the Playboy Mansion

0:20:220:20:26

# Going to date a centrefold that loves to blow my money for me

0:20:260:20:29

# So how you gonna do it?

0:20:290:20:31

# I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame

0:20:310:20:35

# I'd even cut my hair and change my name... #

0:20:350:20:39

Thought you weren't going to turn up, girl.

0:20:440:20:46

-I've been waiting for time.

-You got a problem with that?

0:20:460:20:49

No. Women, innit?

0:20:500:20:52

-It's good to see you, though.

-Going in, yeah?

-Yeah.

0:20:540:20:57

SHE GIGGLES

0:21:030:21:05

You've got game, Shak, I'll give you that.

0:21:050:21:08

-What about these?

-They're nothing special.

0:21:090:21:11

Those are what I'm talking about.

0:21:190:21:20

Yeah, you'd look heavy in them, still.

0:21:200:21:23

-You going to get 'em?

-Way out of my price range.

0:21:540:21:58

-How much do you want the shoes?

-You don't have to get them for me, Shak.

0:22:030:22:07

I know. But I could do.

0:22:070:22:11

If it makes you smile.

0:22:110:22:13

SHE GIGGLES

0:22:130:22:15

Slick, bruv.

0:22:240:22:25

Safe.

0:22:300:22:31

Good to go.

0:22:360:22:38

'Thanks for the shoes.'

0:22:380:22:40

-Oi!

-Huh? Yeah, babes?

0:22:420:22:44

-Ready?

-Yeah, come.

0:22:460:22:47

I tried to forget about her and go about my business.

0:23:010:23:04

Play it cool. Let her contact me first.

0:23:040:23:08

But I couldn't get her out of my head.

0:23:210:23:23

-Thought you were busy today?

-I am.

0:23:230:23:27

-Take me where?

ALL TALK AT ONCE

0:24:110:24:14

All right, I thought Sam was different,

0:24:220:24:24

going college and that.

0:24:240:24:26

Looks good, Rugrat. Fifth floor, man.

0:24:260:24:29

But she was part of their world, the Shine My Nines.

0:24:300:24:33

I was blind, even when it was right up in my face.

0:24:340:24:37

Where the toilet? Where the toilet?

0:24:380:24:43

Turn right, you can't miss it.

0:24:430:24:44

-Looks good, Rugrat.

-Rugrat?

0:24:590:25:03

CHANTING: Where you from, brother? I don't have to look at your face.

0:25:060:25:10

ALL CONTINUE CHANTING

0:25:170:25:21

I've got somewhere to take you.

0:25:390:25:42

-Where now?

-Come.

0:25:420:25:44

-You all right?

-Yeah.

SHAKI LAUGHS

0:26:110:26:13

-It's heavy, innit?

-Not my kind of thing.

0:26:290:26:31

I thought it would inspire you,

0:26:320:26:34

with all the towers and buildings and that.

0:26:340:26:36

I don't draw landscapes, Shak, I draw people. Portraits and that.

0:26:360:26:40

Sorry, my bad.

0:26:420:26:44

You know, one day I'm going to be out there. Making serious paper.

0:26:460:26:50

Doing it right but keeping it real.

0:26:520:26:54

You get me?

0:26:560:26:58

Sorry, what?

0:27:000:27:01

You know, Sam, you should feel lucky.

0:27:050:27:07

I don't usually chat my business to people.

0:27:070:27:10

But you, I don't know, man, you're just...

0:27:100:27:12

-It's just different.

-Here we go.

0:27:120:27:14

-What, you think I'm gassing?

-I bet you talk like that to all the girls.

0:27:140:27:18

-What have boys done to make you so...?

-So what?

0:27:180:27:21

So... You're just some tough woman to please.

0:27:230:27:26

I bet your ex was some pretty boy, like a model or a footballer.

0:27:280:27:33

MC? DJ?

0:27:330:27:34

Some businessman.

0:27:350:27:36

Policeman.

0:27:370:27:40

-Waste man.

-SHE GIGGLES

0:27:400:27:42

-He was a waste man?

-I'm not answering that.

0:27:420:27:44

What is wrong with you pretty girls? Oh, my gosh.

0:27:440:27:48

A decent man come, and who do you end up linking? The waste man.

0:27:480:27:52

He was a nice guy, Shak.

0:27:520:27:53

He just...always used to treat me like one of the man dem.

0:27:530:27:58

Instead of a woman.

0:28:000:28:02

-So who ended the relationship?

-Huh?

-You or your ex?

0:28:300:28:35

Well, I was always telling him one day he'd have to choose between me

0:28:350:28:39

or his road life.

0:28:390:28:41

And that one day came and he chose road, innit?

0:28:410:28:44

At least a real man can step up and take care of you.

0:28:450:28:48

Yeah, but right now I'm just doing me.

0:28:480:28:52

Do you understand?

0:28:560:28:58

What's really good, partner?

0:29:010:29:04

-Hi.

-Great(!)

0:29:040:29:05

I finally get to introduce you to my...my friend.

0:29:050:29:09

Samantha, this is Marcus and Jade. Marcus and Jade, this is Samantha.

0:29:090:29:13

-Sup.

-You all right? So you're the girl that stole Shak from me, yeah?

0:29:130:29:17

No.

0:29:170:29:20

-So, what end you from?

-I'm not from any end. I just live in London.

0:29:210:29:26

-Boy, that told you.

-MOBILE VIBRATES

0:29:260:29:29

-I've got to go.

-Hey, what's wrong?

0:29:340:29:37

It's my mum. I'll ring you later, yeah?

0:29:370:29:40

Even when Sam was acting weird...

0:29:420:29:46

it was like she could do no wrong in my eyes.

0:29:460:29:48

It was all part of the attraction.

0:29:480:29:50

I was caught up, sprung.

0:29:520:29:54

-Why would you do that?

-Because you pissed me off.

0:30:110:30:14

Look, I'm sorry I missed your calls, OK?

0:30:140:30:16

My phone was at the bottom of my bag, I didn't hear it.

0:30:160:30:19

That's dumb, isn't it?

0:30:190:30:20

I had to hand in something.

0:30:360:30:39

I was in the library for ages waiting for a free computer to print

0:30:390:30:43

and then I had to go into work and that was long.

0:30:430:30:46

There's always a school or work excuse with you, isn't it?

0:30:460:30:49

Whatever.

0:30:530:30:54

You got ten minutes to get out of my house before my stepdad gets home.

0:30:550:30:58

It's not my fault.

0:31:000:31:01

You should've answered my calls, isn't it?

0:31:010:31:03

OK, OK. Again, I'm sorry.

0:31:030:31:06

'Let me know if you reach home safely. Hope your mum's OK. Shak.'

0:31:120:31:15

What?

0:31:220:31:24

Is everything all right with your mum?

0:31:320:31:35

Yeah. Why?

0:31:350:31:37

Just asking.

0:31:370:31:38

-Is there anything that you want to tell me?

-What? No.

0:31:590:32:01

You sure?

0:32:070:32:09

Yeah.

0:32:090:32:10

Come, Bugz. Let's break this down.

0:32:290:32:32

So, we've already established that you're the one that's putting in all the work

0:32:350:32:39

-and buying this girl things.

-Yes, that's my choice.

0:32:390:32:41

OK, whatever but, what I really want to know is...

0:32:410:32:46

..for all this work you're putting in, are you getting piece?

0:32:470:32:50

Shakilus Townsend, please tell me that you've pressed the girl.

0:32:530:32:57

Oh, you're slipping!

0:32:570:33:00

-Shut your mouth, man.

-Or what? Are you going to tell me you're on a love ting?

0:33:000:33:05

No, you ain't on a love ting. You're the mad ting, fam.

0:33:060:33:09

Marcus, you need to stop hating.

0:33:090:33:12

I've no reason to hate. I don't want to.

0:33:120:33:15

But you ain't even been out with Sam, like.

0:33:170:33:19

Bruv, you don't know her.

0:33:190:33:21

Mmm. But I know you.

0:33:210:33:23

And I know that Roland with this girl was like,

0:33:240:33:26

I really want to roll through randomers that you don't even know.

0:33:260:33:30

Like the day you came out of pen.

0:33:300:33:32

You never know what can happen, man.

0:33:320:33:35

But at least I got through back.

0:33:350:33:36

If this girl breaks your heart,

0:33:390:33:41

you ain't going to be rolling how you're rolling now.

0:33:410:33:44

Your hair's going to be all picky.

0:33:440:33:46

And you ain't even going to apply for college, man.

0:33:460:33:49

Thanks for that advice, man.

0:33:490:33:51

I'll just add it to the list with everybody who loves to tell me

0:33:510:33:54

what's right, what's wrong, what I can do, what I can't do.

0:33:540:33:57

-I'm not blasting you, man.

-Bruv, what are we talking about chicks for?

0:33:570:34:00

Have you seen the trailer for the Dark Knight, fam?

0:34:000:34:02

Fam, don't even get me started...

0:34:020:34:05

-That film looks sick!

-Are you back and seeing the opening night?

0:34:050:34:07

-I'm speaking into the premier, rudeboy!

-All right! Hey, I want tickets...

You didn't answer my question.

0:35:470:35:49

-How do you know Samantha?

-'That's my girl, blud.'

0:35:490:35:52

That's bullshit! She told me she was single.

0:35:520:35:55

-What, so you ARE seeing her?

-'Yeah.'

0:35:550:35:59

-What, you think you can get away with it?

-Listen, blud,

0:35:590:36:02

0:36:020:36:05

You trying to take me for some dickhead?

So, you're saying you had no idea?

0:36:080:36:10

Course not.

0:36:100:36:12

I know enough girls. I ain't trying to steal the next man's.

0:36:120:36:16

All right, well, I'm going to find out what go on. D'you get me?!

0:36:160:36:19

Hey, Shak.

0:36:380:36:40

Sorry I'm late.

0:36:400:36:42

What's up?

0:36:420:36:43

Oh, you're not in a mood, are you?

0:36:430:36:47

I got a call from some boy claiming to be your man.

0:36:480:36:52

Really? That might have been my ex I was telling you about.

0:36:560:37:00

How'd he get my number, fam?

0:37:020:37:04

He might've went through my phone.

How can he go through your phone if he's your ex?

0:37:560:37:59

-He's just a friend!

-This is you two's business, I'm keeping out of it.

What are you going to do, fam?

0:38:340:38:38

Hold up. I know him. That's the boy that tried to jump me at the park.

-You give him head?

-Danny, we never even kissed.

0:40:000:40:03

-Then why you feel the need to hide him from me?

-I didn't.

0:40:030:40:07

I just never felt like he was important enough

0:40:070:40:11

to talk about, and he's not important.

0:40:110:40:14

Don't.

0:40:180:40:19

Danny, you mean everything to me.

0:40:210:40:24

-Really?

-You know I can't live without you.

0:40:320:40:35

I'll do anything for you.

No, real talk, I ain't trying it, I'm just saying that

0:42:090:42:12

if a certain man's been up all night playing a game and that,

0:42:120:42:14

they need all motivation they can get to reach a nine o'clock lesson.

0:42:140:42:18

Not that I do that, or I need anyone else to motivate me,

0:42:180:42:20

I'm just saying that it's good to know that

0:42:200:42:23

a man's going to be greeted by a pretty face early in the morning.

0:42:230:42:26

When I'm old, I'm going to get a bag of secretaries like you.

0:42:260:42:30

No, I'm not calling you a secretary, I'm just saying

0:42:300:42:32

a pretty face definitely helps boost productivity in the world...

and, the first time they meet, they fall in love? Come on, man.

0:44:490:44:53

Man's gotta chirps and chirps her until she's walking down the aisle.

0:44:530:44:56

But Shaki, if the girl ain't interested, she ain't interested.

I just done the best that I could.

0:56:260:56:30

And I know Shaki was a free spirit,

0:56:300:56:34

so I told everybody to wear, you know, what they felt comfortable in.

And...

0:56:390:56:41
