The first season introduces a major group of characters; a drug trafficking crew headed by Adonis Blackwell (Anwan Glover) and a notorious hit-man named Rahman Abdul (Wali Johnson). The season follows Adonis orchestrating his way to power while Rahman takes on a series of contract killings.
Seeking retaliation from his alleged drug deal gone bad, Adonis deceptively tells Rahman his side of the story about purchasing bad kilos of heroin. Rahman is skeptical of the story, but eventually takes the hit to murder the Nigerian drug-lord Baba (Oladipo Olafunmiloye); not the kind of guy you want to invite to your dinner table. But does Baba really die?
