Drewski and Sky discuss their spat over Bianca, but the conversation doesn't go as planned. Sky says that she's upset that Drewski didn't diffuse the situation sooner than he did, but he uses the fact that he was working as the DJ and that they were on business during the incident.

The two agree that they're still open to being friends and that there's no ill-will between the two moving forward.
However, DJ Self's other female artist he's been courting, Major Galore, is also on the bill, much to the disdain of Mariah Lynn, who was unaware that she was not going be the sole female artist on Gwinnin Entertainment. When the two artists meet up, Major Galore senses the tension between Mariah Lynn and DJ Self and notes that since she's a singer and that Mariah is a rapper, that the two should have no reason to be in conflict.
But Mariah apparently disagrees, leading her to rip up the contract she was set to sign and storm away, all but ending any chance of her and DJ Self working together. Before exiting the premises, Mariah also confronts Rich Dollaz and begins to discredit him, a move which doesn't appear to affect Rich, who says he's secure in his accomplishments and writes off Mariah Lynn's tirade as her attempting to prove a point.

After failing to get in touch with Rich Dollaz, Jade decided to stop by his restaurant to get to the bottom of her issue with his daughter and her disparaging remarks.
