As Jamie walks in, he sees Dre is about to go street on DJ Taj and smoothes out the situation. Jamie tells Dre to handle the contract between the club and the DJ Taj. Instead of handling his job, Dre goes back to the block and meets up with his boys. Once his boys find out that Dre works at a club, they question him about how to rob it but Dre states that he doesn’t know the ins and outs just yet.
