Official description Edit

Why Paper Boi always got an attitude? He rich, right? That's why I can't feel bad for these celebrities.[2]


The episode begins with Alfred having a dream about his mother before waking up to answer a call from Earn. After refusing pasta from Darius, Alfred leaves to spend time with potential girlfriend Sierra. While shopping for new clothes for Alfred, the two discuss Earn, with Sierra advising him to find a new manager. Afterwards, while visiting a salon, Sierra and Alfred discuss the latter's presence on Instagram and social media in general, but Alfred gets angry when Sierra takes a selfie without his permission and storms out. As Alfred wanders the streets alone, he comes across three black teenagers who quickly recognize him and proceed to rob him after realizing he doesn't have a car. Despite losing his watch and chain, Paper Boi fights off two of the teens, but retreats into the nearby woods when the last one aims a gun at him. Alfred manages to hide, but is now lost in the wilderness. While searching for a way out, he encounters a homeless addict named Willy, who offers him chapstick and openly compares Alfred to his mother. Unnerved, Alfred refuses and presses on. As night falls, Alfred realizes Willy has been following him and orders him to stop. Willy in turn compares him to a dead deer. As they stop to rest, Willy gives Alfred some friendly advice, then threatens to rob him with a box knife unless he leaves immediately. Alfred does so and soon finds himself outside a gas station at the edge of the woods. The episode ends with Alfred buying a drink for his wounds, then posing for a selfie with a white teenager.
