Life-long friends, Nate & Moe, are certified players! Both have used their jobs in the entertainment industry to their advantage with the women they meet. Moe is a well-known radio DJ in New York, while Nate is doing his damage with a pen as a magazine writer in Baltimore. When Nate loses his job in B-more and moves back to New York to freelance for one of the hottest urban magazines, a controversial article he writes about star music artists that are using drugs could lead to his permanent down-fall. Moe warns Nate about releasing the article, but Nate's regaining of success has him feelin' himself too much - Now he's making big-cash and begins feeling like he's untouchable! Playing women may only get him slapped, but playing with the industry's hottest hardcore rappers that have millions to lose from the article could get Nate 'slumped'! Kaneecha (Moe's girl), is a sexy-diva clothing model and nympho without a conscience. Kaneecha's always gotta have it, whenever, where-ever! But a horny-night decision may come back to haunt her. Tierra is a blunt-smoking, hood drama queen from Queens, NY. Though she's known Nate for a long time, it wasn't until he resurfaced in New York years later that she recognized that she wants a piece of that! Later, she views Nate as the answer for her baby-daddy drama. Janettea (Nate's 'main-girl') is an independent sophisticated-dime that's doing her own thing with interior designing, but can also cop an attitude with a quickness! And, she ain't above giving a beat-down to a hoochie she thinks is sexin' Nate. All the dirt Nate's doing begins to catch-up with him. Having twice narrowly escaped the hardcore rapper's crew of henchmen seeking revenge against him - he might not be so lucky the next time! Doing the ultimate dirt to his boy Moe, has serious consequences of its own! And, his player-ways gets him played! It's just the price you pay for being NASTY!
