He has over 100 employees, and now, their jobs are on the line. Dro then decides he wants to go into the diamond business with Badu. Despite the rapid success of Weed World, their neighbor, Erica, is annoyed by the idea of the store. Her complaining eventually has her tied in with the issues at Weed World.
Pako, the manager of Weed World, brought his educated brother Gorgi from Africa to America. Gorgi didn’t understand that his degree would be worth nothing, so he was devastated to hear that he would have to work meaningless jobs. Gorgi is blindsided with the idea of living lavishly in the United States, thus getting him in trouble. Pako marries a Latina woman, Jenny. His open-mindedness led to his family pushing him away and disowning him. Jenny’s mom never wanted his daughter to be with an African man. These two have come together to make a baby boy even though their parents were against it.
We then have Moussa, who lived in the United States, then left to go back home to Africa, where he became a diamond guy. He came back to the United States, looking for a partner in his diamond business. Moussa eventually encounters problems with Badu and his partner about the money they gave him for the diamonds. The Senegalese president was helping Moussa’s boss to bring the diamonds to the United States, but now there’s a new president. Moussa’s boss wants to start a violent rebellion to take the new president down, but Badu and Dro disagree with this plan.
Harlem is the division amongst the Africans and the African Americans. On the side of the Africans is Baye Matar, who has become a part of the drug world with the African Americans.
