The hustler from the store who cussed at the lady is still hard at work trying to sell those electronic devices in Episode 3 of “Love is Blind” (2015). You know by now that I won’t be telling everything, but I’ll put it like this…if it was you that saw him on the street that day and you got what the guy who gave him just $50 did, you’d be a happy customer. He told him that the device worked really well and had no dysfunctions, but you remember what the girl said in the store about what she bought from him before, so we’ll see!
Mercy is still working those boys hard on the streets, but in Episode 3 we get to see another one of his guys out there getting that money for him. Since the younger guy, Rodney, isn’t doing as well on the books with the money he is turning in to Mercy, the street boss decides to let one of his older guys, Crill Gates, try and put him under his wing . Gates initially isn’t feeling “babysitting” the younger Rodney (Rodney Flames is his rap name), but wait until you hear what territories Mercy promises this way more squared away street hustler and possible mentor Crill Gates. Check it out on Episode 3 here.
At the interview at the radio station, you can tell that Rodney isn’t really liking how Gates is getting all of the calls and recognition, but the young man still plays it humble saying how he is just trying to follow suite behind the older Gates. The radio announcer kinda makes Rodney Flames cringe a little when he says that he resembles old school Bad Boy Rapper Black Rob (He kinda does, watch the 3rd Episode of YouTube’s “Love is Blind” here) but it hurt more because they had just asked Gates how he considers himself to be a different rapper than all of the other ones who sound alike in Brooklyn.
Gates just says “I’m a breath of fresh air” and the he just wants to “tell his story”. Hopefully as the older mentor, he can eventually do as Mercy requested and not get Rodney too addicted to rap being that the younger guy needs to focus on the money from the streets as well. Because, from the sounds of things, Rodney’s account with Mercy seems to be somewhat delinquent! But the way the DJ’s handled Rodney was wrong at the interviews end…
Episode 3 is called “The Proposal” for a reason. Mercy is getting a little pissed that everyone is coming up short. When the owner of the barber shop pays on time but doesn’t have all of his ends, Mercy almost gets the big guy Adolf on him, Mercy’s big homie who looks like he could do some major damage if provoked!
There seems to be another type of proposal going on too, but I can’t quite put my finger on it….you gotta watch to see. Stay tuned to Director Wanly Florexile’s wonderful new drama, “Love is Blind”.
