'However, God has smiled on you today. Yessir, you fellas done crossed my path at a time I have need of some boys with a special set of skills,' Lazy said. Beauregard recognized the line from some stupid action movie a few years back. 'I know it seems impossible cuz I'm such a charming fella, but I'm having problems with a boy from North Carolina. We having a disagreement about who runs what round these parts. And I got to give it to him, that boy been giving me all I can handle down there. But I'm gonna win. Cuz all he got is soldiers. I got family,' Lazy said. He nodded to his men. They nodded back.

'One of his soldiers got himself a nasty meth habit. Now as fate would have it, the boy he owes is one of mine. In exchange for his debt, the soldier told me a lil secret. His boss got a shipment coming through the Carolinas. A truckload of platinum that ain't even supposed to be on this side of the country,' Lazy said. He held his hands out in supplication.
