KAISER

I'm sorry KAISER, give your music sometime to get on the charts. You need some play time we got your album out there.

ALLYSSA

Allyssa looked frustrated.

KAISER

ALLYSSA walks out the door heading home without any drama.

ALLYSSA, enters he Condo in a hurry to sit down AT HER HOME Music STUDIO Where she has a file of a new song she’s been working on.

Moments later, gangster rapper (UTAH KATO) alias UK calls a friend on his iPhone not in a very good mood.

WADES BODY SHOP GETS A CALL.

A man answers his iPhone

QUINN

Sop

GUNTER!

Wop bro?

QUINN

What do you know about UK’s roadies and his thug music?

GUNTER

There UK’s group man bunch of Thugs.

QUINN

Are they a Rap or Hip-Hop group?

GUNTER

There an indie like your group you manage.

QUINN

Do they do covers?

GUNTER

Yes, with their own originals mixed

QUINN

So are they like a gang?

GUNTER

Guess you could say that, man.

QUINN

So they do that gangster music?

GUNTER

Yes, there following is growing their groupies act like thugs.

They do the same things some GOTH MUSIC does they have

their own type of mosh pits, working up a frizzy slamming each

other pushing and shoving. Charges where dropped on them

when several people died in human wave pushing each other

back and forth enough they found a lot of shoe left behind.

QUINN

I remember it happened, now that you reminded me. CRAZY

GUNTER

You've bet?

QUINN

Yes, that happened last year

OCEAN PARK – AN HOUR LATER

As QUINN sat in the park alone listening to some Rock and Roll music, it all reminded him of things that happened before.

He watches the Sunset as it sunk into the bay.

QUINN

What do I do now Universe? Speaking out often in his meditation, but like usual he never had the answers straight forward

Quinn could feel this was going to take another intervention like when he was in Los Angeles things started out bad then changed by his own hand, he made it stop.
