Annotation: The Kingpins of Oklahoma City, one from the north side and one from the south side, push pounds of weed, gallons of PCP, and kilos of cocaine through the corridors of the OKC, using very different methods to keep their people in line.
King is the leader of the north side crew. Along with his protégé, Tippi, he runs his crew with deadly force. Each member knows there is no room for error when it comes to getting money on the north side.
Flamboyant, the leader of the south side crew, is the opposite. His crew is tight out of loyalty, not fear.
King and Flamboyant know nothing of each other, especially the fact that they are both doing business with the same connect.
The money is good for all involved, and it’s a win-win situation for Charli and Toni, the suppliers. They keep the reins tight on both leaders, because a war on the streets would be detrimental to their thriving business in Oklahoma City.
Everything goes awry when Flamboyant’s woman, Shayla, becomes torn between her current man and the one who used to rule her universe King.
Once the lines are crossed, there’s no going back, and the war that Charli and Toni are trying to avoid becomes a reality. A love triangle fueled by two men who would gladly give their lives for the woman they love is causing death at an alarming rate.
Is Shayla worth losing what these two men have built? In the end, which kingpin of Oklahoma City will remain standing?
