Dick’s, ambitious personality as well as his drive, had a positive influence on everyone around him, especially his younger brother Worm. At the age of 23, Worm is also gifted in music, and once shared the same dream of musical success. Although Worm was inspired by Dick’s “never give up” attitude, he had a tendency to follow behind their drug dealing brother, Wa’kim.
Wa’kim (aka Fighter), at 32, has witnessed the demise of his surroundings from a different perspective than Dick. He strongly believes that the government is behind this destructive narcotic epidemic. He only dreams of keeping his family from being bound by strings of poverty, and sees selling drugs as the way out of the ghetto.
Because of Worm’s loyalty to both his brothers, he is torn between choosing the road of hard knocks or musical stardom. Then a family Tragedy Strikes... Worm, now has to decide between superstardom and hustling on the block. Three brothers, 2 path’s, 1 choice, which one will he choose? Find out on May 23, 2009 at 8pm ET / 5pm PT.
