Ty Johnson has it all.  He's King of the Streets.  He's a 17 year old African American drug dealer.  He's taken over his father's territory and he's learned all he needs to know from his dad.  Sure he's only a kid but he knows what it's all about.  But his mother insists that he stay in high school.  Enrolled in an alternative school, Ty couldn't care less about the school.  It's just a place to find more buyers and sellers.  One thing he didn't count on finding is Alyse.  She doesn't know about Ty and he wants to keep it that way.  But then trouble starts.  A rival dealer is trying to take over Ty's territory.  Will he take his father's advice to eliminate the threat, or will he find another way to deal with it?
