Life is supposed to be easy and carefree when you are young, but if you live in Washington, DC, that's not always the case.

These four brothas come from different walks of life, but they have one thing in common: They are trying to make fast money in the harsh inner city. However, when the money comes too easily, there's usually a price attached...the ultimate price.
