The kind of power they’ve established helps get them exclusive tables at fancy clubs, but it also makes them and the ones they love potential targets. Borrowing heavily from mob classics by casting Scarface actor Steven Bauer, what we get is a crime caper that allows Drake to emote around lingerie AND shoot a gun while his friends rock Flock of Seagulls hair.
