Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Gina's boyfriend Dion (Edafe Blackmon), better known as rap artist "I'm Down", hires Ron (Darryl M. Bell) to promote his upcoming concert. At the same time, Freddie (Cree Summer) becomes painfully aware that Dion has been physically abusing Gina (Ajai Sanders). Ultimately, the entire campus finds out about Dion's wretched behavior, leading Ron to take drastic action. This is one of several "message" episodes which popped up sporadically on A Different World, proving that even after five seasons, producer Bill Cosby was still very much the series' guiding force.
