Zorba the Greek

“What you looking at? Phil Hop recites in front of the mirror. “You look fa trouble? You wan to fack with Phil Hop?!” he lifts a revolver and points it at his mirror image. Phil grits his teeth… KNOCK KNOCK!

Phil walks to the door and opens it up. It’s Hasan. “Yo, Mr. Hop. We go now? Is time to go.” Phil waves a gun through the room. “I’m loaded! Nobody fack with Hop and Hasani.” Phil snorts a line of coke off the coffee table before bolting outside sharper than ever. He hops on Hasan’s dirtbike. The duo drives to an apartment in South Central.

A man with a mustache opens up the door to an apartment. Three guys twice their age sit in the living room. “Mr. Yorgos?” Hasan asks the man. “You got the shit?” says Phil who trails behind the Middle-eastern figure. “Who’s the Chinese guy?” one of the men says in a condescending manner. Phil grabs his revolver within a split second— one of the other men points a pump-action shotgun at Phil. “Hey, hey! Take it easy! All friends! We friends!” interrupts Hasan. “Put gun down!” yells Yorgos.— “You think I’m all talk mothafucka?! You think I’m all talk?!” The man staring down the barrel of a gun stares at Phil with big eyes. “Calm the fuck down you crazy fucking egghead!”.

“We got the shit, okay.” Hasan sets a bag on the table. “You count it!” Yorgos counts the money while the shotgun remains pointed at the duo. He eventually nods. A duffle bag is lifted from behind the couch onto the table and opened up, revealing an assault rifle, some handguns, and two submachine guns. “Get the fuck out here.”

“Greek shashlick mothafuckas” mutters Phil on his way out. “You crazy looney almost got us killed, bro. Fuck you.”
