  2. Each episode just gets better and better!!!

  3. The Shoe Man is a character actor named Terence Rosemore. You may have seen him in such films as, “The Nice Guys,” or “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2.” He’s not a comedian but he is a familiar face. Fun fact, he’s from Montana.

    The Shoe Man getting shot was sadly predictable. It fell into the trope of killing gay people when you don’t know what to do with them.

    And to answer your question, not only would I not kiss someone for a material item (because I can get it on my own) I wouldn’t get in a van with a strange man. That’s just something as a woman I wouldn’t do.

  4. Awh nah he died because a father or friend of a father saw them and the father called his son to rob them. It was also found that PNB rock posted the location first

  5. That was a whole Widebody scat, not just a challenger!

  6. I think that Doug was a reference to chance the rapper since the big day would have released when they wrote the season

  7. Crank Dat Killer

  8. Uhhh… did you mean Cardi B is fine financially or beauty? 🤔

  9. This was the funniest one

  10. I used to love Lipstick Alley but haven't gone to it in years

    That kid named Doug gave me chance the rapper energy lmao

    I always thought that Al would end up leaving music, faking his death, or ultimately get shot and die.

  13. I heard of Lipstick Alley a few years ago. Media takeout is pretty good as well when it comes to black entertainment Apps. Paperboi has made a big change since season one. Stepping up his money game. They didn’t have to do that in the van.

  14. Doug set that shooting up to get him in a track. #CrankDatKilla

  15. Van as Amily is greatest episode

  16. Lupe was right. "Rappers die too much"

  17. Shoeman had me rolling.

  18. For clarity it came out that those who shot PnB where already at the restaurant when he arrived

  19. Fire fih dat lol..

  20. Considering the rumors about Donald & Lakeith I’m kinda surprised this is the 1st time we seen them kiss on the show. I think they may be 🦇tty boys

  21. chris evans has a crib in atlanta

  22. The chris evens reference has to be because of eternals and paper boi played Phastos in external and no one took eternals seriously so maybe the chris even is a shot at brian Henry (paper boi) 😅😅🤣🥴🤣🥴🤣

    I almost stopped this video when you said " I don't blame Cardi…because she fine ".
    But anyway….
    Good breakdown.
    I don't doubt the possibility that Alfred might die, especially considering how dark/unpredictable the Glover brothers can be.
    Not sure, however, if it is customary for a character to return….. especially this late into the season finale.
    There's only, what, 2 episodes left?
    My biggest WTF moment was the mall shooting.
    How did you remember that reference from season 1?
    And that was too much of a coincidence, was that high school dude a copycat killer?
    And no…… theres nothing / no material item worth me kissing a man for.
    The only way I'm even considering doing anything like that is if my child's life depended on it. But we're talking life or death.

  24. @MovieFiles why do you want paper boy to die 😂

  25. 23:30 let’s not forget Donald Glover is a big marvel X Spider-Man fan was in one of the movies

  26. second only to episode 5 this season

  27. Also the Samurai Sword Darius really wanted was placed in the top right of the kitchen 👀

  28. I laughed the hardest when Some Guy Named Doug brought up doing a collab again and Al was just looking out the window in pain 😂

  29. I really hope Al doesn't die.

  30. PNB's killing had nothing to do with locations being posted. He and his girlfriend were targeted for a robbery because they were in a very rough neighborhood in LA at a Roscoe's with tons of bling on. That's just not wise and you don't put attention on yourself like that. In fact, if you want to wear all of your jewelry, go to a posh area of town where you are around wealthy people like yourselves that don't feel the need to rob. The killer took it one step too far and decided to take that man's life and it was totally unnecessary. He had the jewelry. Why take his life? Anyway, it was all so very tragic.

  31. Terence Rosemore played the Shoe Man.

  32. I noticed that connection from the skull emoji to the skull on Roberto's headphones also. I am thinking he will come back and want to seek revenge on Al because he pushed him in the glass but Roberto needed to learn how to read the room. There were active shooters in that mall.

  33. Hell of an episode. Hell of a breakdown.

    Thanks for the breakdown

  34. You might be on to something with the Roberto /Stan analogy, I saw the skull on the video but didn't see it on the headphones, great catch.

  35. With Chris Evans in this show's reference i immediately thought of a Civil War or maybe it was Winter Soilder….Capt America and Black Widow were wearing logless Caps and mirrored sunglasses lol

  36. Funny you said Darius and Van are left field and they are looking to our left in the poster! LoL yeah the cost of those Shoes are higher than money and something you cant get back, your dignity…

  37. Paper Boi recorded Crank Dat Jimmy Neutron at Greenbrier Mall. It’s the same mall he was in during the episode

  38. I’m bout to fuck y’all heads up😂😂😂

    The guy who tried to kill PB InThe last episode has nothing to do with the guy named Doug and has been after PB to kill him since all the way back in season 1 episode 4 and nobody has even noticed,there is a scene with the bartender that goes like this.

    Somebody was in here
    looking for you today,

    waiting when I opened.


    This dude?

    No, he wasn't Dominican,
    I don't think.

    But he was different.

    Shaved side of his head.

    Pink jacket.

    And he wasn't a friend.

    Sitting in his car
    when I opened up.

    Dodge Challenger, '70s, tan.

    Cleaner than the
    board of health.

    I'll tell you, smoking a Swisher

    with no weed.

    Guy gave me the creeps.

  39. Great episode 😂 My questions/thoughts were:
    1. Why didn’t we once see Al pull out his gun??? We saw him have one in the studio when Aunt Jeanie busted in with Earn.
    2. Soooo Al was just going to leave an intruder in his house and casually go to the mall for pretzels when someone is out to kill him??? Lol
    3. I’m surprised they didn’t clear the shoe man out once things died down. He had no moral conscience in making them kiss lol 🤷🏾‍♀️ It was kinda a sign of karma to me lol

    I don’t think Roberto will come back. I think his through line was the fact my guy held onto to “Big Sean” Theory and got the exact opposite effect of what he expected to happen and immediately after that Doug saves Paperboi, making the “Big Sean” theory of being there where the rapper they want to rap for is at the right time not for Roberto but Doug instead and giving Doug a window of opportunity that was literally pushed away from Roberto. And thus giving Doug more of a shot at fame at the end of the day than Roberto now ever will. That’s me atleast. Love you, man. I get high and watch your shit and I loved watching you work with NineNerdYard

  41. 31:13, That’s exactly what I was thinking about. I wanna know what the beef was that dude still hasn’t let it go and he’s willing to shoot at Al in a crowded mall to get back at him.

  42. This video popped up on my feed. Love your take on the episode. You have a new subscriber sir…😁

  43. I actually think the Roberto storyline was a setup to the joke and commentary that Roberto ran up to Paper Boi at such an inappropriate time to spit his rap.

    And I don’t really think Paper Boi was someone that Roberto specifically idolized, but an opportunity for Roberto to shoot his shot at becoming a rapper.
