Season 4 was another successful year for this gem of a show that deserves to be watched by everyone and their momma! Michael V. Epps stole every scene he appeared in as Jake. The story is gripping from start to finish while showing different perspectives about how crime affects people living there– especially when you’re black or brown-skinned like me; but no matter what your skin tone may be, the drama will pull at your heartstrings one way or another because it speaks so deeply into society today which makes it all too real and relatable. Season 4 features an incredible cast including Birgundi Baker (Nana), Alex Hibbert, Shamon Brown Jr. Curtiss Cook, and Luke James.
