The pop star plays Coco, a young Staten Island woman who works in her mother's (Lorraine Toussaint) soul food restaurant while struggling to make it as a rapper in a crew that includes her casual boyfriend Malik (John David Washington). When her mother insists that she go back to college and get her degree, Coco winds up in a poetry class taught by the imperious Professor Nefari Dixon (Jill Scott). The professor, prone to making such pronouncements as "I do not write poetry, poetry writes me," kicks Coco out of her class for daring to rap instead of reciting poetry.
