Previously on Rap Sh!t Season 1 Episode 2, after their first video gains traction, Shawna and Mia’s second attempt at success leads to creative differences. .
Warning… Spoilers below!
On Rap Sh!t Season 1 Episode 3, Guapdad4000, a California rapper in Miami for the weekend, updates his Instagram story with clip after clip of him and his boys living it up, popping bottles surrounded by the hottest girls. He shouts out Chastity aka the Duke of Miami, in his last story, but his team fails to pay her.
Back at her uncle’s house where she’s staying, the women he manages take off because of the heat, and she’s disgusted to find the house hot and smelly. Her uncle demands she pay the rent this month, although she’s been gone, and reminds her he doesn’t take orders from bitches.
Later at the famous strip club, The Office, where Mia used to dance, Chastity comes to collect her payment for promotion. The club manager only gives her 10%, even though she recently brought in celebrities and other rich men. Frustrated, she heads back to talk to the girls.
After trying to recruit an auditioning stripper, Chastity sees the clip of Mia rapping freestyle on her page and listens to the other women talk about her. They think it’s cool that Mia is leveraging her Onlyfans notoriety to get into music, and Chastity is clearly interested.
That’s the Game
At his mom’s house, Lamont and Melissa watch Scarface. When he asks his mother if she can watch Melissa while he heads to the studio, she agrees, but outside he finds his car has been towed. Apologizing to Melissa and promising to make it up to her, he goes out to the studio.
In the office, Lamont calls his boy to try and get everything sorted out, but he finds out it can sometimes take years for engineers to get paid. Frustrated, he asks about an advance, and his “friend” hangs up on him. Out of options, Lamont sells his brand new watch to a pawn shop.
Next, he texts Mia to ask for a car seat for Melissa, and she berates him for not saving any money for emergencies. When his mother and Melissa call, his mother gives him the number of her pastor, just in case the music doesn’t work out.
When Mia arrives, she admits that she hated how dedicated he was to his music when they were together, but she always respected it. She tells him she’ll give him the money for the car and claims that it isn’t a handout if he’ll take a shot at producing her and Shawna’s first song.
Fix My Faucet
Meanwhile, Maurice collects his mail before meeting a friend in his car. They open up envelopes full of stolen credit cards that were ordered using guests’ personal details swiped from the hotel. At that moment, Shawna calls Maurice and asks him in code to drop off her cash that night.
At the store, Maurice and his friend try to buy five thousand dollars worth of merchandise with the stolen cards and almost get caught when the attendant asks for their ID. Maurice manages to finesse their way through the process by holding up the line and distracting the checkout lady.
After her shift, Maurice shows up to drop off Shawna’s money, and she allows him to see her studio equipment. She’s surprised to find he knows a bit about it, and he’s surprised she’s so willing to scam people at the Plymouth. Shawna assures him that eventually, she’ll stop.
Back at home, Maurice and his friend talk in Haitian Creole about their scheme to take most of the goods to the airport and then elsewhere. They pack them up into suitcases, and when his friend asks him if he trusts Shawna, Maurice reminds him that he trusts none of “these bitches.”
After seeing Mia’s freestyle video, Chastity texts her to let her know she thought it was dope. Soon after, she gets a call from some of her girls who are out working, and she’s furious when she finds out a man in a black Nissan with a heat logo stole all their money for the week.
When she picks up her top girl in the city at night, they discuss leaving her Uncle behind and doing their own shit, independent of everybody. At Shawna’s, Lamont listens to the track for the first time and works his magic over it. Mia and Shawna are impressed and love the final track.
At the end of the night, Chastity facetimes Mia and offers to get their song listened to by the right people. She’ll do it for free, but only if she can be Shawna and Mia’s manager. Mia doesn’t give her an answer, but Chastity promises she already has a vision for both of them.
