Following several very prominent public run-ins that have thrust their battle into the public eye, Riley is just one of the many fans who are anxiously awaiting the latest news in the ongoing feud between urban gangsta rapper Gangstalicious and his Southern counterpart, Eat Dirt. Hearing that Gangstalicious has been shot during a concert, Riley asks Granddad for permission to visit the fallen rap star. Refusing to take no for an answer, he first tries getting hurt himself so that he can be admitted to the hospital, too, before tricking Granddad into sending him on an errand to the store. Yet, despite explicit instructions not to visit the injured rapper, Riley takes a detour to Woodcrest Memorial Hospital. At the hospital, Gangstalicious tells Riley that, rather than the work of Eat Dirt's crew, the latest shooting was carried out by some gang members he owed money to from his days as a drug dealer. Gangstalicious panics when he is told that there are no more police securing the hospital. And when Riley is distracted by a phone call from Granddad, a hit squad led by a Gangstalicious's nemesis, Lincoln, arrives to finish what they started. As the danger of the situation becomes apparent, Riley discovers that, contrary to his tough public image, Gangstalicious is a coward. As they try to flee, a frightened Gangstalicious drops his gun, leaving him and Riley defenseless. Hijacking a white fan's Honda Civic, they try to outrun their pursuers, but are caught and taken to a clearing in the woods. And when the efforts to kill them are undone by poor marksmanship, Riley is stunned to learn that the dispute between Gangstalicious and Lincoln is actually the result of a gay love affair gone awry.
