As he grew older, he and some of his friends get caught up in petty drug trafficking and find themselves on several occasions having to kill to survive. As he gets a strong reputation for being one of the top killers out of the crew, he sees an opportunity to work for one of the Italian mob bosses as just the break that he needs to get rich. However, the thing that he viewed as a blessing was really a curse when one of his close friends steals drugs from the mob boss and the mob sends him to kill his own friend.
