Bobby identifies the body and meets up with his childhood friend, Eddie "Big Bread Ed" Fields. The two immediately take matters into their own hands and go in search of the killer. They meet up with the town gossip, Tasha, who informs them that Sonny had issues with a local rap crew, B.C.B Entertainment from Newark, New Jersey. She tells them that Sonny's girlfriend, Valerie, has been missing ever since his murder.

Detective Mason Bennet visits Bobby and tells him that he's doing everything in his power to find who is ever responsible. Bobby goes in search of Valerie and finds out that she's in fear of her life and hiding out with her uncle, a D.C. cop.

Bobby meets up with his uncle Charlie Foster at his restaurant to see what he knows. He tells Bobby that Sonny had issues with a local rap crew, and even though he and Sonny had problems in the past, Sonny looked up to him.
