-What up there, bro? -Yeah, yeah.
-How you doing, man? Okay, I see
you’re Mr. Popularity. Somebody’s got to be. I guess this week it’s me. Come on. Let me show
you around. Actually, um,
can you give me one second? I need to call my brother. All right. Cool.
I’ll be out here. Fellas! What y’all doing

ain’t no joke. Oh, I noticed that. Yeah, that’s
why I told you, you got to hang

I came by your room when I got home,
but you were asleep. What the hell
happened to you? Oh, nothing. I just got brutally attacked by some of Atlanta’s
finest thugs. [Janelle] I’m so sorry. -Who did this to you?
-It doesn’t matter. Yeah, it does matter.
Look at your face. What are we gonna do? We are not gonna do
anything, all right? You’re at High Water and I’m at Garvey. And I’m late. [Davis] So if we have
two more auditions to go and the last one’s
our solo, what the hell’s
the next one? [Odalie] I don’t know, but I spent all night
working on my solo. I tried FaceTiming
to show you,
but you didn’t pick up. No, I’m so sorry, I knocked out
as soon as I got home, but I can’t wait
to see it today. [Davis] Hey, yo, I could use
some feedback too. You guys wanna work
on the solos tonight? Um, absolutely. I need as much help
as I can get. Man, you’re dope.
We’re dope, all right, and we’re about to be
the dopest crew over here at High Water. Oh, I got to turn
in my paperwork. -I’ll see you guys soon.
-All right, see you. Hey, don’t worry. You’re gonna be great,
all right? Ugh. What you looking at, bitch? Nothing. Watch yourself. Hey, come on.
Don’t worry about her. [session bell rings] [dramatic music playing] What up, Tal? You feeling
any better? And whatever you do, don’t snitch, okay? Don’t snitch. Congratulations
to the prospective students who made it past yesterday’s
round of auditions. I know you’re curious
as to what the next round will entail. This is Mr. McCoy Harris. He’s one of the master teachers
here at High Water, and he will explain further. [McCoy] I’m pleased to make
your collective acquaintance. The next round is
a peer review performance where the prospective
students will be paired with
the High Water students to choreograph
a routine together. The High Water students will critique you, and make no doubt it, we take their assessment
very seriously when we make
our final decision. Good luck. [Electra] All right,
let’s start with the pairings. I hope I get
someone good. What are you talking about?
Everyone’s good. But some are better, right? Look, no matter
what happens, we’ll be okay. We got this. [Collette] Odalie Allen, you will be paired
with Leticia Bingham. Janelle Baker, you will be working
with Poppy Martinez. Can’t I get
someone better? Okay, you will work with
who I assigned you to. [Electra] Megan Driscol
and Kyle Wilson. Josh Dowdy and Chris Royce. [Poppy] Three, four,
turn around, hit, hit, hit and pop, and booty, booty, here. And now we hit
the freestyle. Come on, girl.
Why you not dancing? [Janelle] I, I don’t know.
I guess I’m just nervous. And I guess
you can’t freestyle. Can we just do it again? Do you mind if I record you? What? It would just help me
get some ideas. You’re kidding, right? It’s called freestyle
for a reason. Put the fucking phone down
and let’s go again. From the top, five, six, seven, eight, pop. One, two, three,
turn around. And hit, hit. [Collette] All right,
so once we take out this wall and this wall, then we will have
our gorgeous new studio. -[Sage] Uh-hmm.
-[Colette] Right? It looks so good. I thought it was
gonna too expensive but with all
the new kids coming in, we’re really gonna
need it, so… -[buzzing]
-[sighs] East-O. East-O. Oh, yeah. I was wondering
when you two were gonna run
into each other. [Sage] Yo, since I’ve been back,
this dude is like a dog with a fucking bone.
It’s ridiculous. I’m sure everyone
from back in the day just wants a little time
with you. Yeah, nah, East-O
wants more than time. He loaned me like,
uh, twenty grand to start my first album. Twenty grand, mind you, that
I paid back ten times over. But nothing’s enough.
It’s like he feels like
I owe him everything. Two hundred grand?
Sure seems like a pretty generous payback to me. Yeah, I, I thought so too. All right,
so all in all, this is gonna cost us
75 grand. Fuck this.
Look, we’ll do this– -We’ll do this another time.
-Excuse me! Why are you throwing
this back at me? You wanted the audition. [Sage]
We’ll do this another time. [singer]

with that ho Janelle. Do you know that she was
with Rigo last night? You serious? No, no. I’m not–I’m not helping
that girl. You’re not helping her,
you’re helping me. Besides,
she can’t freestyle. I’m gonna leave her ass
in the rearview. I’m gonna show her up
in front of Sage and Collette. I just need a dope track
to do it. [sighs] King, come on. I need some
dope ass music. Please? Okay. All right. Um, I think I got something
that’ll shake things up. Thanks. [singer] ♪ We, we, we, we,

with your boy? Um… [Dondre] Or you can just
keep walking home. I mean, at this rate
you’ll make it there by… next Tuesday. Come on, man,
I heard about your fight. I got something
that’ll cheer you up. [indistinct rap playing
on radio] Yeah! [Dondre] My man said
he got the all-star dunks in the blue-on-blue
colorway. I’ve been trying to get them
for a month. You come here a lot? [Dondre] Yeah.
Sometimes twice a week. Everybody has
an obsession, right? What’s yours? Uh, I-I-I don’t know. Maybe you haven’t
discovered it yet. Now that you in ATL,
you might wanna step your kick game up. -What size are you?
-Eleven. [Dondre] Yeah,
I’m sure the Garvey kids got a lot to say
about those. Yeah, well, they got a lot
to say about everything. Yeah, and I can tell you
don’t give a fuck. I respect that. I went to Garvey. Or should I say
I survived Garvey. They tried to step to me crazy
because I was a PK. -PK?
-[Dondre] Preacher’s kid. Oh, yeah, that’s right,
your dad’s a preacher. Oh, no, no, no,
not just “a” preacher. In this hood,
he’s “the” preacher. Alpha and Omega First Church
of Christ the Redeemer. Corner of Spellman
and Jackson. [Tal] So you’re into,
like, church and stuff? In my own way. I follow a different gospel. [singer]
♪ Same boys out running
around for me, yeah ♪ Nah.
[chuckles] What are we gonna do
with you, Ohio? I got no fucking idea. I got to figure out
what I’m gonna do now Janelle’s probably
going to go High Water. She’s going
to High Water? Damn. Exactly. So what do I do? Just do you. Always. Listen, I never wonder
about what anyone has to say. Not my parents, those Garvey punks, no one. And now I throw
the biggest parties in the city, and all
those Garvey assholes try to come to my shit. You like those? Yeah. Try them on. Nah, come on,
they’re fucking gold
and red and green. -I’m not gonna be able to…
-So what? There’s nothing wrong
with standing out. Let me tell you something. Hiding ain’t helping, Ohio. You, my man, let me get these
in a size eleven. [shopkeeper]
Sure thing, man. What? They’re–
no, they’re, they’re 200 bucks. I, I have to… And now they’re yours. Consider it a welcome gift

-That was good. I’m sorry,
was that a compliment? Let’s take five. What you need to do
is let go and stop worrying
about the moves. Yeah, well, letting go has never really been
my thing. Maybe I can help you
with that. You nervous? [kissing] See? Letting go can be
a good thing. You know Poppy’s coming
right back, right? Don’t worry about
Poppy, all right? So, let me see. Show me the choreography. Well, it’s not the choreo, it’s the freestyle
that’s driving me nuts. Look, for freestyling? Just put levels in it,
you know what I mean? Start here with it,
bring it up, you know what I mean?
Just drop it down like that. That was dope. Try it. Arms here, pick it up, -drop down, bop.
-Oh. [Poppy] So that’s how it is? Uh, no, no, Poppy,
that’s not how it is. Look, he was just showing me
some steps. I’m sure he was. Go, we have work to do. That’s right. Yeah. [tsks] Look, your shit
is looking raggedy, and we’re gonna stay here

-No, again. You’re not doing
it hard enough. I see you chilling
with both of your girls at the same time. [Rigo] Well, first of all, none
of them are my women, all right? Yeah, it’s not what
it looks like from out here. -Whatever, man.
-Come on, man. -Let’s go to the studio.

you don’t. Oh, okay, Miley,
my bad. I see you hanging around
that Janelle chick, right? You two knew each other
before the audition? Um, no, we just met. But you’re turning
into a crew, right? What’s her deal? I don’t know. Why don’t you ask her? Look, Rigo is like
a brother to me, and if my boy’s hanging out
with your girl, I just wanna
make sure that– Oh, you didn’t know? Yeah, they went out
last night. He likes to help
his favorites get in here. Well, I’ll see you
around, Miley. Hey. Sorry I’m late. Where’s Janelle? She’s probably with Rigo. What? What are you
talking about? [Janelle sighs]
Sorry, guys. I was rehearsing with Poppy
and then she got mad because Rigo
tried to help me. Oh, is Rigo gonna be helping
all of us or just you? Is that why you went out
with him last night? So you could get in good
with the star of the school? [Janelle] No,
that’s not what happened. Then why didn’t you
just tell us? Because I really, really
need you guys right now. How do you even think Rigo
and his crew got to where they are? By being loyal
to each other. We’re not even
in High Water yet and you’re already
going behind our back. I don’t know about you,
but I’m not waiting around to see how
she’ll screw us over if she actually gets in. [Davies]
Yo, Odalie, wait. You should’ve told us. [dramatic music playing] [Collette] ♪ If you’re lost ♪ ♪ I will find you ♪ ♪ If you’re lost ♪ ♪ I will find you ♪ ♪ If you’re lost ♪ ♪ I will find you ♪ ♪ Again ♪ You still got it. Hardly. Come on, you know

in a minute. -You ever miss it?
-Hmm. Performing. -Professionally, I mean.
-Oh. Yeah, I did for, like, a minute or two
or five or ten. -Uh-hmm.
-Who am I kidding? I’ve been pissed off
for five whole years. I honestly expected you
to come back. Yeah, well, my knee
finally healed, but I couldn’t get my head
back in the game. Not everyone is the force
of nature you are, Sage. Force of nature, yeah. Is everything okay? Hmm? Yeah, yeah,
I’m just a little tired. I’ve been messing
with this reverb thing since, like,
1982 or something. Uh-hmm, see, I know that when you rub
your head like that, it means you’re stressed, so don’t try lying to me. All right, Iyanla,
ease up, okay? You don’t know my life. Yeah, I do. What’s up? I am… 53 million dollars in debt. I’ve never said that
out loud before. Uh, 53 million dollars? What does that mean for you? What does that mean
for High Water? Nothing for now, you know. All of High Water’s operating
budgets are in a trust. So for the next couple years,
we’re good. But, uh, all these
renovations and whatnot, the whole new studio, we’re probably gonna have
to put that stuff on hold for the moment
just until, you know, until I get the money
rolling back in again. Right, and the best way
to do that is for you to get in the studio
and make a great album, so let’s get to it. What, what can I do to help? Yeah, uh, that part, um… I haven’t produced
any new music in the last five years or so. How? You just released
an album three years ago. Of music I wrote
five years ago. And the tech company,
damn fashion line just– just everything just got
so damn big, man. It takes time and money. I sit and try to write
and it’s like, there’s nothing there.
I’ve done– like I got too much
stuff in the air, I’m spread too thin. You know what?
It worked for me here, though. This hood.
This is–this is the hood that inspired me to do music
in the first place. Yeah. This is
where I need to be. Yeah. This creativity,
these kids, this is the vibe
that I need, yeah. Sage, you can’t just
come back here and expect all your problems
to magically resolve themselves. That’s not what I said. Yes, it is. I’ve been doing this
a long time, okay? I know what I’m doing. I’m gonna put this album out, it’s gonna be fucking epic, Sage saves the day.
Crowd goes wild. I got–I got tour sponsors
set up right now. The tour
for the non-existent album? [phone dings] [dramatic music playing] [Sage] You know what,
of all the people that I thought I was going
to have to prove something to, I didn’t expect to see
your name on that list. The last name I expected
to see on that list, but it’s cool.
This album’s gonna come out and I’ll accept
your thank you and your apology
at the concert. [sighs] [dramatic music playing] You go kill it today, J. All right? I mean it. I love you. [Janelle] I love you, too. -Come on.

-[Rigo] They should just freestyle
to a different track. [Sage] Hmm, yeah. Yeah. I like that.
I like that. Let’s freestyle.
Let’s do that. No, that’s not
how the process works. Something happens on stage,

your observation from working
with Ms. Baker? Well, she takes
direction very well, but, I mean,
her ability to think outside the box
or think on her feet is dead on arrival. She can’t freestyle. She can’t visualize
a move in her head. Okay.
Well, thank you. We will reconvene here
in an hour for the final solo auditions. What the hell
just happened? The music has been working fine
for the past two days. You must’ve
screwed with it. Maybe I did.
Maybe I didn’t. But you couldn’t
adapt, so… And that’s how
you survive out here. If you guys think that this
is gonna be the last of me, you have
another thing coming. [Poppy] Did you screw
with our music on purpose? No. We did it for you, Pop.
She crashed and burned. I could’ve crashed her,
I could’ve burned her. And I don’t need you
up in my shit -trying to rescue me.
-No. Don’t be like that. Be like what?
And don’t think I don’t know you took
that bitch out on a date. Pop, stop, stop,
look, look. I was just showing her
around the hood, all right? It wasn’t that crazy. Come here. All right?
Don’t think I’m gonna let anyone or anything come
in between us, all right? Especially her. Come on. Chill out. Hey, hey, hey, hey. Save it for the backseat
of your dad’s Impala. Come on. [indistinct rap
on radio] What’s up, Sage? East-O. [East-O] You know,
we used to skip school and now you own one.
Ain’t that some shit? That’s some shit. [East-O] Look, man,
I know you’re busy, man, but, hey, I need you
to listen to my beats, man. -I ain’t asking that much.
-All due respect, East, I got my album
to worry about, I got the school
to worry about now. I can’t just drop everything
and listen to your beats. But, look, I got your number
and you got mine, so I’m-a hit you up,
all right? I got to get inside, bro.
I’m-a holla at you. [East-O] Who are you
talking to, yo? Yo, hold up, man.
Don’t turn your back on me, man. [Rigo] Hey.
What up, Dad? What you doing here? Dad? -This is your kid?
-[Rigo] Hold up, Sage. My dad said you
and him go way back. [East-O]
Go back inside, son. We’re talking business. All right? Go. -Really?
-Come on, man. It ain’t even like that, bruh.
I just–I just got shit -to do, man. That’s all.
-That’s all right.
That’s all right. I know you don’t care
about me, but that boy is gonna be a superstar and I’m gonna make sure that you help me get there. He’s talented,
I give him that. -But…
-[East-O] Ta–ho, ho, talented? My son can dance, he can rap, he can act, he can put High Water
on the map right now. And I can do the music like we used to do. My son, me, and you? Yo, man, we could take over. Ain’t nothing we can’t do. [sighs] Huh? Hey, look, you owe me that much. [scoffs] You know what, East? The way I see it, I don’t owe you nothing, bruh. Nigga, you owe me your life in case
you forgot that, right? Now you’re a big star, you got all your new
hass-a-diddy friends now, but this “friend,” this was the “friend”
that had your back when nobody else did. You know what, the fact
that you’re moving around town like, what, Papa Joe 2.0? Trying to pimp your son, you know what they says
about you, bruh? That you’re just
a dumbass street nigga and that’s all
you ever gonna be. You might run High Water… but I run the streets, nigga. You remember that. I got shit to do, bro. Hey, what’s up, Dorrie? [Dorrie] Hey. Where’s my shoes? Where’s my fucking shoes?! Dorrie? Can’t snitch. [slams locker] [indistinct chatter] [indistinct] All right.
Everybody, listen up. You’re all very good, and you should be very happy that you’ve made it this far, but your solo audition
is your moment of truth. And by the end of today, the new class of High Water
will be chosen. You good? Never better. [suspenseful music playing] [laughter] [man] Hey, hey, hey. [laughter] [indistinct chatter] [man] Oh, man. [car alarm blaring] Fuck you! Hey, hey! Go, go!

Line up. [suspenseful music playing] [Collette] Okay.
When you hear your name called, please take a step back. Sanford, Brown, Scott, Nee, Jimenez, Allen, Johnson, and Baker. Janelle Baker,
step forward, please. Okay. First and foremost, you should all be
very proud of yourselves, because as you know,
not everybody made it even this far. So, congratulations. I need you to know
and understand that should you not make it
into High Water today, this is not the end
of your story, just this particular chapter. So, with that being said, front row, thank you all very much
for coming out. Back row,
congratulations, you just made it
into High Water. [crowd cheering] [suspenseful music playing] Hey, hey. Be proud
of yourself. Thank you.
Thank you so much. Nothin’ but weirdos
in this bitchfest! -Next on Step Up: High Water…
-[spectators scream] I’ll be starting
a brand-new tour… You’re the one
who got into High Water. -You got my life.
-Guess you’re gonna have
to live with it. You and Dondre,
what, are you like a thing now? You wanna tell me who let
East-O’s kid into my school? -I did.
-I’ll beat your ass up! -Last night was…
-The most fun I’ve had
in a long time. Made in Georgia. ♪ Diba-diba dee-dee duh ♪
