What goes on in the mind of a gangster?

In the streets or hood, it’s “Get it how you live or else become a victim of circumstance.”
Born and raised in the gutter of Liberty Arms Projects, EP, Hops, Freaky Rel, and Big Gee, aka "The Bottom Boyz" were products of their environment. Faithfully, they lived the street life each day; grinding, putting in work, or whatever deemed profitable at any expense.

Though known as mere hustlers to the projects, their gangster recognition stood out at an alarming capacity. But behind all the constant drama and complicity, The Bottom Boyz lacked the mental ingredients that it took to elevate their game to its fullest potential. On the other hand, despite their reckless and senseless behavior or the scale of the profit, they were constantly searching and plotting to rise above their current situation. They cared less of whom and what got in their way or whose life was threatened; ultimately, greed overcomes them. Personal lives begin to unravel and in their quest to overcome the realms of the streets, their gangster life, loyalty, the block, and even friendship will be tested in a major way.
