Love it! This is a good look for Omari! Happy for Naturi too. I loved her in Notorious and I have been following her work. She's dope! I will def be watching!


One season!


One more comment…… 50 cents has some type of obsession/fetish with being a gangsta or something!!


Let me guess, the wife wants him to remain corrupt, while the White Angel convinces him to go legit, and leave the dope game behind, and for that alone, I doubt I'll be tuning in.


Hmmm….Omari Hardwick is a decent actor, he's much better to just look at though. The 30 or 40 second clip that S&A showed a few months ago left me more excited than this minute long clip. That can't be good.

And Naturi Naughton? Black directors are dying to make her a great actor, huh?


Agreed… Omari is a great actor who deserves more opportunities. Sadly, everything in this trailer has been seen before and done to death. It's 2014, not 1999.

Are we really still telling the lowly street entrepreneur moving up the drug game only to find himself out of his league and over his head, while simultaneously being betrayed by those he trusts story still?

Would be great to see him playing a hero or something.


Excited to see Omari getting work since he's been putting in his time. The trailer left a lot to be desired though. Will still be tuning in.
