The Film starts off with Mike explaining through a monologue his high school life and during this he is heading to class. He explains how he is too cool for the geeks but not cool enough to hang with the upper echelon black kids so him, Ladavious and Shawn are awkwardly left in the middle between the two and they nowhere near Kendall. Ladavious and Mike exchange some words and they head to lunch their normal place they eat lunch at the library and Shawn is listening to Tribe Called Quest and Shawn vouches that Tribe is the best hip hop sound. Mike reveals he is hungry and they tense and say they have to go to the cafeteria and they head there for the first time in a long time and everyone at every single table is rapping or having a rap contest and they get their food and try and head back but one of the contest meet Melody intrigue them and they stay and listen to it. They go on with the generic stuff and Mike buts in and starts a freestyle about how deep life is and they boo him out and say to leave the whack stuff at home and they are booed out of the cafeteria as they head out Oscar comes to them and tells them that karma happens when they leave the star trek club and Ladavious blows him off.

Mike and Melody heads home and he listens to a new J Cole album and his whole collection is seen and his dad comes into the room and dumps his clothes and thinks he is studying but instead catches him writing rapes and he tells him that he is not going to get anywhere with writing raps but Mike disagrees and states that he is good at but His Dad tells him that it offers nothing and he will be getting nothing out of it and leaves. Mike and Melody heads back to the school the next day and they have an interesting conversation and they head to lunch room as Mike has more rhymes with Melody. They head their and are about to get in a rap battle until a girl comes in and shows them a video and it is of the famous rapper from their community, J – Wiz and that he is gonna come back and have a mixtape contest hat will last 10 days and the winner will get signed to his label and they all get hyped and Mike looks at Ladavious and Shawn and smiles that Melody mad.

They head to Rot Nose Pete, a man who they buy their hip-hop stuff from and he gives them the key to his studio and tells them with Melody they can go in their anytime they want and Shawn is amazed by the studio quality and they play around with the equipment but then get serious and they spend a day in there writing rhymes. The next day at school they get a threated from Oscar but brush it off but Kendall comes and talks to Mike and tells him that he likes his ryhems and that he admires his work ethic and success and invites him to a party they are having and invites him over to come.
