The scene is set when a group of hopeful rhymers consider chasing the music dream, until one person speaks on the elephant in the room — their lack of funds. That’s when Uncle Murda enters with his bright idea.
“Listen, y’all got the money. All you got to do is pawn your jewelry, pawn your car, pawn your bike. Take it to Pawn Rite,” he says emphatically.
