The two friends grew up eating noodles off of the same fork, now they are primed to eat off the drug game.
From the Bricks to the ATL nigga's must bow down or get laid down. Cam'ron epitomizes the grimy streets of Newark, he's a supreme hustler with a vicious murder game.
Cam'ron loves four things: his money, family, his homie, and his boo.
Touch either one and you get served, Cam'ron warns the streets.
Of course Newark niggas are the grimiest so they don't take heed to Cam'ron's threat, they touch all of the above. Tamika who is Cam'ron's boo makes shit hotter when she sets out to show him that he's not the only hustler checkin for her and she does not have to condone his womanizing.
When Tamika gets with a hustler who refuses to let her go back to Cam'ron the consequences get catastrophic for somebody. Meanwhile, Raheem who is the polar opposite from his man, is quietly putting his G down in the Dirty South.
When ATL thugs test Raheem's gun they find out that a quiet storm is the deadliest.
Raheem is as gentle with his woman as he is proficient with his murder game. Kayundra, Raheem's shorty has fallen into drug addiction and it has her in a vice grip.
Raheem's love for Kayundra never wavers.
He helps her beat her addiction and soon she's refocused on her dream of becoming a R&B diva.
With Raheem's help Kayundra lands a recording deal and almost overnight she becomes a star.
But success comes at a price that threatens to shatter their love. Raheem and Cam'ron go hard for what they want, and they attain it, leaving a lot of bodies along the way.
They make many mothers bury their sons and shed tears, but on the road to hood fame and riches they learn that sometimes the enemy strikes back and its your turn to cry. When the blood and tears stop falling will what Cam'ron and Raheem gained be worth what they both lose? CJ is devastated when he comes home to find Tamika on the floor unconscious and leaking blood from several execution-style gunshot wounds.
As he holds her in his arms tearfully begging God not to take her away, he already knows that if she dies he is going to turn Newark, New Jersey into a killing field.
Raheem has just lost the love of his life to suicide and although he is grieving nothing can get in the way of him helping CJ go up against a foe as ruthless as any he has ever faced before.
But when Raheem's loyalty collides with his Islamic faith, and the chance to love again presents itself, his principles get tested.
Nard is not only out to dethrone CJ as Newark's drug king, he is death bent on annihilating CJ's whole team.
This beef isn't about drugs, it's about a woman, and it's very personal.
Young Nard shows that he can match CJ's gangsta body for body.
When the smoke clears who will wear the crown as The Bricks supreme thug? Money, power, respect and the battle for one woman's love pitted two notorious drug dealers against each other in a bloody battle that left behind many casualties. Young NARD has finally brought down CJ, Newark, New Jersey's most powerful and most dynamic crack King.
But the baby-faced drug kingpin has made one monumental mistake-he left RAHEEM dying, but with an ounce of life still in him. If Rah survives, there's going to be a war in the streets unlike anything the decrepit city has ever witnessed, as he seeks to avenge the death of a friend whom he loved like a brother. Both men are thinkers, and they both have murderous goons at their disposal.
But only one side can be victorious. Which side will it be? Will Nard's ego remain in check as his stature explodes to astronomical heights in the hood? If Raheem lives, will he prove that his gangsta is as cold as his mind is sharp? Nothing is for certain but death.
But who's death will it be? This time when THUGS CRY, they'll cry more than tears-they'll cry blood.
Lots of it
