Ebone: You just gotta have the swag. You don’t even need to write the intro down.
Nicole: I just want like a little outline.
Ebone: Say your name like that, “Rich.”
Nicole: Rich! City. Do we throw out like the state flower?
Ebone: Make some little noise, like sound effects
Nicole: Like DMX. Arf, arf, arf. So how about meow? …Chillin in the hair salon. Oh, you know what’s so baller? If I get a house call.
