Christopher's girlfriend Adriana sees herself having a career in the music industry so a chance meeting with rap star Massive Genius seems to be the opportunity she's been looking for. Christopher is supportive but Genius has other goals in mind: he's out to get money from Hesh who he feels cheated an black artist 40 years ago and he definitely wants to get into Adriana's pants. Adriana has her eye on a group that she thinks is bound for stardom but no one else seems to agree. Tony meanwhile decides he wants to expand his circle of friends and focuses on his next door neighbor, Dr. Cusamano. The experience doesn't prove as interesting as he might have thought. Written by
