Plot

Two hip-hop rappers, A-Maze and Young Eastie, are both struggling in a twenty-four-hour time frame in Miami, Florida.

Young Eastie is an up-and-coming rapper with big dreams of making music; on the other hand, A-Maze, who already has the fame, is a rapper gone sour with bad press and a change in his fan base.

Eastie is making his music, working at a fast-food restaurant, and selling marijuana out of the window. He and his friend/producer Jay, portrayed by Lil' Scrappy, manage to get an interview with A-Maze, which gives Eastie a chance to give him his demo.

A-Maze's bodyguard shoots a fellow musician during a club party, which sends the media hounding for his head. The shooting causes his career to go belly-up overnight, and presses his contractor, portrayed by Big Daddy Kane, to release his album to capitalize on his temporary limelight.

In the meantime, Eastie and A-Maze's rivals (Pablo and Trick Daddy) come after both Eastie and A-Maze to keep them quiet about the simultaneous shootings which took place the night before, slowing both of them down before the end of the night.
