  • Silkk is getting stalked by a guy his fatehr once arrested.

    Like the other TNBC series-City Guys, Hang Time dealt with gun violence. However they featured a different way of sending the message of gun control.

    Silkk's father is a police officer and arrest a man for a crime. That same guy decided to go after Silkk adn stalks him all the time.

    Silkk decided to get a gun insteasd of telling his father and at the school car wash, Silkk is force to use the gun.

    What makes this one different from City Guy's gun episode, where Jamal's father got shot. Silkk misses hitting Mary Beth with a bullet.

    A nicely done episode, however there is no follow up to what happens to Silkk for having the gun.moreless

  • NOTES (1)

    • While this episode dealt with a gun being fired, it wasn't as serious as an episode of the series City Guys in which a character was actually shot.
