Synopsis by Josh Ralske
Danny (Catherine Dent) and Lemonhead (Kenny Johnson) are moonlighting, working security at a "shake club," where rap impresario Kern Little (Sticky Fingaz) is having a party with his girl and fellow recording artist, Tyesha (Chene Lawson). Kern's rival and former labelmate, T-Bonz (Dex Elliott Sanders), arrives, leading to a shootout in which two people are killed. To make matters worse for Mackey (Michael Chiklis), his own personal drug dealer, Rondell (Walter Jones), was on the scene and fired off a couple of shots. Mackey has him turn over a couple of guys from his side, and orders him to keep his dealers off the street until things settle down. But Rondell doesn't follow orders very well. Mackey gets Kern and T-Bonz to agree to a 24-hour truce while he (Mackey) arbitrates their financial disagreement. Things get more complicated for him when Danny identifies him (from a mug shot) for Acevedo (Benito Martinez). Mackey tells Rondell not to worry, but Rondell decides to take action on his own. Acevedo gets Dutch (Jay Karnes) and Claudette (CCH Pounder) to track down a missing illegal immigrant day worker as a favor to Jorge Machado (Efrain Figueroa), a political powerbroker who's thinking about helping Acevedo run for the city council. When the ceasefire is broken, Mackey comes up with a unique way to settle the dispute between Kern and T-Bonz.
