I want to say|I hope you're proud...

Deejay On Radio:|And it's a beautiful sunny day...

Oh, see, I wouldn't even mess|with that, folk...
'cause she don't look|like no freshman.
[Laughing]
A'ight, folk.
Are you sure you|don't need no backup?
Excuse me.
Hey, yo, what's up, ma?
What's up, pa?
All right.|Yo, I'm Devon...
but you can call me ''D.''
Hi, Devon.
Ain't you gonna|tell me your name?

Laila:|Nice to meet you, Devon.
Yeah, uh--|See y'all later.
[Whistle Blows]
What you mean I'm blockin'--
Man: If you are here|for band training...
gather round!
Take a good look at this man.
This black Adonis|is known as God's Gift...
A.K.A. Double G.
You will know him|and call him such...
from this day forward!
I'm Buck Wild!
We are your drum majors.
Starting tomorrow...
white T-shirts at all times.
It'll help us identify you...
as a crab who knows|absolutely nothing.
Maybe you will one day|have the honor and privilege...
to wear the school colors,|but for now...
you as blank as the white T-shirts|you'll be wearin'!
Understand?
Group: Yes, sir.
Understand?!
Group: Yes, sir!
Get up to your dorms.
Get well acquainted|with the rule book.
Dinner's at 6:00 in the cafeteria...
and after that, it's night-night.
You're dismissed!
Night-night?
[Scoffing]
Man, I ain't tryin'|to have no curfew.
Yo, my man's told me|about this spot...
where the girls|supposed to be bangin'.
Y'all down?
Yeah.
[Hip-Hop Dance Music Playing]
[Snoring]
[Whispering]|Let's do this.
[Loud Drumming]
[Whistles Blowing]
Get your asses up!
Let's go!
Come on!
We want you out on the field.
Let's go! Move!
[Bass Drumming]
Oh, hell, nah.
[Snoring]
{y:i}[When The Saints|"Come Marching In" Playing]
[Playing Stops]
Good morning.
Group, Sluggish:|Good morning.
Good morning to music.
Good morning and welcome...
to Atlanta A&T University|marching band training.
The next 2 weeks|will be your introduction...
and possibly induction...
into a great marching band legacy.
If you're here...
it's because you believe|in musicianship.
If you're here...
it's because you believe in...
Coltrane, Miles Davis,|Stevie Wonder...
and the elements known as|Earth, Wind, and Fire.
If you are here...
it is because|you have a fervent...
unequivocal belief...
in teamwork!
Boy: Come on. Hurry up.
And if you wish to remain here...
you better start believing|in being on time.
You...
who is your roommate?
Uh, Devon.
Uh, Miles.
[Muffled Laughter]|Sir.
Eyes front!
What's up, Dr. Lee?
It's all good, Mr. Miles.|Glad to have you here.
Thank you, sir.
Why was he late?
I guess he overslept.
Well, why didn't you wake him?
I'm not his mother, sir.
I asked Mr. Miles...
why his roommate was late!
He says, he "guesses" he overslept!
I asked,|''Why didn't you wake him?''
And he says|he is not his mother!
Section leaders,|what is our concept?
Section Leaders:|One band, one sound.
One band, one sound.
When one of us is late...
we are all late.
When one of us|looks or sounds bad...
we all look and sound bad!
So what's the concept?
Group:|One band, one sound.
Now I want 1 0 laps|from all those...
who "are not"|their roommate's mama.
{y:i}[The Saints Come Marching In|Begins To Play]
Don't whine.
And while you're joggin'|around the field...
let the robust composition...
of "the Saints Come Marching In..."
flow through your mind.
Soundtrack:|##When the saints go marching in ##
Dr. Lee:|People. People, run...
don't walk.
## Lord, I want ##
## To be in that number ##
Dr. Lee:|Move it along, baby.
## When the saints go marching in ##
Trumpets are the voice|of the band.
We are the melody.|We are the clarity.
Tubas are the most important|section in this band, boy!
Tubas are the boom--
Saxophones are the truth,|the funk, and the hook.
See, once they hear us...
[Rhythmic Clapping]
We are the heart...
and the soul.
Without the percussion section...
the band doesn't move,|doesn't come alive.
[Heart Beating]
We are the pulse...
and without a pulse...
you're dead.
That's why we're the most important|section of this band.
[Whistle Blows]
Man: All right, band.|1 0 minute break!
Whoa.
Where the hell y'all goin'?!
He said take a break.
Did I say take a break?
- No.|- No?
No, big brother Iron Man, sir.
We do not rest with the band|in performance...
and we do not rest with the band|in practice.
Give me 30 push-ups.
You got a problem?
Nah, dog.
You want 30 push-ups,|you got 30 push-ups.
Iron Man: Make it 3 2.
[Laughing]|Hey...
look at this.
We got a girl on line.
A G.I.Jane in the house.
[Laughing]
Hey, baby,|you might wanna do...
some, uh, girl push-ups,|because, you know...
guys like a little something...
soft to hold on to.
[Laughing]
- Damn!|- Damn!
Iron Man:|Pick out a drum...
from this side only.
Sign 'em out over here.
Enjoy it now...
'cause this might be the last time|some of y'all see a drum.
What the hell you doin'?
Gettin' my drum.
Nah, nah, see...
these are for A&T drumline only...
P-1 s.
You are not a P-1 .
You are a crab.
Now take it off.
I'll take it off|when you calm down.
Group: Ooooh.
Everybody clear outta here.
Now!
Boy, don't you|ever disrespect me.
Dog, you gotta give respect to get it.
What, you threatened by me?
I don't know shit about you, crab.
Nah?
So, you don't know|how your man, Dr. Lee...
came all the way to the N.Y.|to sit in my living room...
and tell my mom|how much this band needs me?
I don't give a damn|if he stayed in your mama's bed.
I own the drumline.
You wanna get down,|you come through me.
Now take off my drum.
Your raggedy-ass shit...
is right over there.
Buck Wild: Let's go!
Iron Man:|If you can't hang...
put your drum in storage...
and go home!
Now, move your ass, lift your feet,|and you'll make it to the top!
Buck Wild:|Y'all can't wear my colors...
runnin' like that!
Let's go, Uncle Ben.
I bet your country ass|would run faster if I had...
one of your grandmama's|hot butter biscuits.
I guess it ain't white boy day, is it?
Come on. Let's roll.
Come on, tubas.|Let's go.
Come on, boy.
That's why your raggedy ass|gets a raggedy drum.
Boy, you gonna graduate|in that white T-shirt. Damn!
[Chanting Cadences]
[Chanting Cadences]
What's your name, crab?
Jayson Flore, sir.
A.K.A. Affirmative Action.
Brilliantly named...
by big brother Iron Man yesterday.
What's wrong?
They don't have enough black people|in Georgia Tech?
I don't find their marching style|or musical selections...
interesting enough, sir!
And no...
they don't have enough black people.
[All Laughing]
Now you done messed up the cadence.
[Groaning]
Iron Man:|Take it from the top.
Ah, shit.
They don't tell you about all this|when they recruit you.
[Jayson Groans]
I wouldn't know|Mr. First-Round Draft Pick.
You wanna talk about hard?
Try switching from|corps-style marching...
to traditional style.
Now, that's hard.
[Chuckling]
I bet you that is hard for you, B.
[Ernest Laughing]
Yeah, right. Don't even try that...|"White Men Can'tJump" bullshit.
I got skills, man.
I'm just sayin',|in my high school...
marching band|was all about military precision.
[Scoffs]
I coulda been|a P-1 at Georgia Tech...
or U.G.A. in a minute.
OK.
So, what you here for, then?
I love black people.
[Laughing]
All right. All right.
No, on the real, man...
I love this band.
I grew up right down the street.
When I was little...
I could hear 'em practicing|down the block from my house.
I'd be outside playin'--
[Mocking Violin Music]
I'm serious, y'all.|Come on.
Shoot.|A&T's the reason...
I picked up a drum|in the first place.
I feel you on that one, dog.
[Telephone Rings]
Oh, shit!
Ernest: Hel-Hello?
Yes.
I can do that.
Yes.
I can do that.
I can--
I can do that.
[Whistle Blows]
[Whistle Blows]
Section Leader:|Do not slow it down. Move it! Move it!
Come on. Come on.|Pick it up!
[Chants And Drumming]
''The beginning is always today.''
One of my favorite quotes.
President Wagner,|what a pleasant surprise.
So, what exciting new beginnings...
can we look forward to this year?
Well, for the most part,|I'll continue with...
the overall direction|of the program.
That direction is a losing one.
I don't think we can measure|the success of our program...
by the number of people...
shaking their butts|in the stands...
and no, we didn't win|the B.E.T. Classic...
but our first obligation|is to educate...
and then entertain.
Please,|not the edu-tainment speech,James.
Save it for your students.
It's a good one.
The kids in my program are learning.
There won't be a program...
if the alumni continue|to lose interest.
We win, they write checks.
Dr. Henderson was smart enough|to know that.
He played popular music.
That was James Brown|and Marvin Gaye...
not "The Thong Song."
Now, I will play popular music...
but not at the expense|of musicianship.
When you hired me...
you wanted me|to strive for excellence...
and that is exactly|what I am doing.
I also said we needed to win.
Buck Wild: 1 , 2.
1 , 2.
1 , 2.
- 1 --|- Dr. Lee: Freeze!
I want your knees hitting your chest.
Then drive your feet into the ground.
I'll say it again!
Knees into chest!
Then feet hit the ground!
Buck Wild!
When I say, ''chest,''|you say, ''out.''
- Chest!|- Group: Out!
- Chest!|- Out!
Buck Wild:|What's wrong with your chest?
Your chest don't come out?
What's wrong with his chest?
Stick your chests out!
- Chest!|- Out!
- Chest!|- Out!
- Chest!|- Out!
- Chest!|- Out!
Laila: 1 , 2, 3, and 4.
5 and 6 and 7 and 8.
And 1 , 2, and 3, 4...
5, 6, 7.
Come on. Let's go.
[Hip-Hop Song Playing]
I'm sorry, but, um...
rehearsals are closed.
I didn't know you was a dancer.
Do I know you?
What, you don't know?
Dr. Lee sent me over...
you know, to check on things.
To check on things?
Yeah. See, they got this|hot new snare drummer...
real good-lookin' brother|with cornrows.
Yeah, he about to bring it...
like you ain't never heard.
See, I can help you out...
with a couple of them dance moves.
1 , 2. 3.
Pop it. Take it.
Drop it. Yeah.
Beat it, Devon.
Thought you ain't remember me.
Iron Man:|A break is 5 minutes...
not 1 5.
Hey, Devon,|you know if you keep messin' up...
Ernest actually might get a chest.
[Laughter]
[Straining]|Oh.
And Diedre might get strong enough...
to pick up a hot comb.
[Laughter]
[Rhythmic Drumming]
Iron Man:|Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Hold up. Hold up.
What are y'all lookin' at?
Drums ain't goin' nowhere...
so what you clowns|lookin' down for?
Always remember this.
Playin' the drums...
it's like makin' love.
You can't be lookin' down there...
seein' what's going' on,|trying to get the flow right.
Eyes on me.
Don't look down.
Yeah.
Now, when you|makin' love right...
when you handlin'|your business...
you feel it!
[Sticks Clatter]|Ugh.
Maybe you don't.
Eyes on me.
Mm-hmm!
Yeah...
you know how it is...
when you hittin' that spot, right?
Don't ya, girl?
Never look down.
[Sticks Clatter]
Dr. Lee:|That was impressive.
Thank you, sir.
What I like most...
was instead of|making Sean look bad...
you made yourself|look like a jackass.
Let's take this from the top...
and this time, follow me.
Don't look down, remember?
You have to learn to follow...
before you can lead, Mr. Miles.
Sean: Congratulations.
You're not crabs anymore.
Now you're crab drummers.
And tomorrow...
it's tree-shaking eliminations...
which will determine|who will become A&T drummers.
So tonight, celebrate...
'cause you made it through training.
[Start Cheers]
Yo, whoa, whoa.
After you prove|a thorough knowledge of the rule book.
What is mandatory|of all A&T musicians?
All A&T musicians must read music.
When can a P-2 or P-3...
challenge for a spot on the field?
At the practice|before the performance, sir.
What is...
last rule of the rule book?
Uh.
Head, uh...
Stay ahead of the game.
[Muted Groans]
One band, one sound means...
you all are responsible|for each other.
That means|all of you are responsible...
for showing "Boyz In The Hood" here|what the last rule is.
What y'all laughing at?
Down, boy!|Sit down!
What's up? I'm going to get|a lap dance or something?
From Diedre.
Something like that.
Sean: Why don't you read|the last page, brother?
All right, all right.
''If you do not read this rule book...''
All: ''Your head will be shaved.''
I told you to read the book.|I told you, dog.
Devon, Devon,|would you like me to help you...
take your cornrows out?
Would you like me to help you|take yours out?
Ernest:|Show you some love, dog.
Hey, Dev, let me tell you.
You can look like me...
but you ain't never|going to play like me.
[Crowd Jeers]
Watch my nerves.
You ain't touching my head.
You don't follow the rules...
you don't audition.
Whatever, man.
Is that what you want me|to tell Dr. Lee?
I don't care what you tell him.
Dr. Lee ain't my daddy.
This is bullshit.
Man, how much fish|is Charles going to put in there?
He going to short out|the whole building. Damn!
You know, uh, big brother Sean|is going to be really happy...
when he finds out|you quit the band...
'cause of some stupid haircut.
'cause of some stupid haircut.
[Muffled Dance Music Playing]
Well, all right.
I'm about to go get up|on some honeys.
Holler!
[Dance Music Playing]
This is the best.
[All Cheer]
I got my homeboy|right down the middle.
Wait, wait, wait.|Hold up. Hold up.
Who in here can do|an uptown fade?
[All Yelling]
I got this.|I got this one.
Dr. Lee:|All right, crabs, check up!
Tree-shaking is going|to rank you P-1 through P-4.
But only P-1 s are guaranteed|a spot on the field.
Now, if you're a P-2 or a P-3,|you can still get a spot...
in sections that are available,|so do your best.
I'll see you all on the other side.
[Car Horns Blow]
Man: Who is that?
That's the upperclassmen.
They flash their lights|to say what ranking...
they think we should get.
Hey, Charles,|what's up with your socks?
Man, don't worry|about my socks, man.
It's a tuba thing, shorty.
Better be.
Mr. Miles,|please play the required piece.
It's on the stand.
You notice this crab|hasn't looked down...
at his sheet music once?
- So?|- So?
Who memorizes an audition piece?
It's complicated.
It's supposed to be read.
They expect you|to stumble through it.
Like you did?
Dr. Lee:|Mr. Miles, I guess you didn't like...
the required piece as written.
No, I just thought I'd add...
a little something-something|on the end.
Sean: He can play.
We all know that.
But his attitude is messed up.
Now, I've put 3 years|into building this line.
And the chemistry's great|and I don't want to jeopardize that.
[Car Horns Blow]
Your line seems to think otherwise.
Yeah! P-2 bass! Ow!
I did it, ma.
Yeah, P-1 and everything.
The only freshman to do that.
I was just calling to let you know|everything is everything.
Come on,|you know what that means.
Yeah, it's all good.
Excuse me.
Hi. I'm looking for...
this really good-looking brother|with cornrows.
- And I heard--|- Student: Shh!
I heard he made the drumline.
Oh, so now you got jokes.
Congratulations.
Thanks.
You know I can't wait|to see you move to my beats.
Do women actually respond|to the way you come at them?
Well, actually,|they usually come at me.
## This is a man's world ##
W-What? Wait.
Where you going?
My bad. Hold on.
Why don't you school me|on how to come at a sister.
OK.
How about showing some interest|in something...
other than the way she looks?
All right.|Let me see what you got here.
Damn, girl!|What you, part of Oprah's book club?
I'm a philosophy major.
Dang. Philosophy?|That's deep.
Yeah.
Like, Ms. S.A.T. Girl, huh?
Your parents probably|used to put...
all your report cards|on the refrigerator.
Mom be talking about,|''Aw, look...
''my baby done got another "A."
Yes, she did.''
Something like that.|What about you?
What major makes|your parents proud?
Hey, to tell you the truth...
I never even thought|I'd be in college...
till Dr. Lee recruited me.
It's that simple for you, huh?
Yeah.
I should--
You know what?|Let me get these for you.
That's so cute.
Yeah, I thought you'd like that.
I did. I liked it.|But I can manage.
I have a car.
Word?
Snares, listen up.
This last drum part...
before my solo's very complicated.
Pay attention.
Now, I'm gonna|go through it slow.
Pay attention.
Sean: Now the first game's|a week away...
so you're gonna have to step up|to the learning curve quick.
So take out your sheet music--
[Drumbeat]
Yeah, that'll work.
[Line Laughs]
All right.|Choreography formation plots...
will be worked out|on Wednesday...
and we will have our first|run-through on Saturday.
This is one of the new songs|for our first game.
It's by E.W.F.:|Earth, Wind, and Fire.
Man: Old school.
Come on, now.|What y'all complaining about, huh?
Oh, oh, oh, I see.|Y'all think y'all a band?
All: Yes.
See, Earth, Wind, and Fire was a band.
Woman:|Back in your time.
Dr. Lee: Hold it. Hold it.|So it's like that?
So, what y'all want to play?|A little Angie Stone?
All: Yeah!
What? LL CoolJ?
All: Yeah!
Snoop Doggy Dogg?
Ha ha! Ha ha!
All these artists sample|from this group, OK?
That's what we going to play.|Let's focus.
1 , 2, ready, and...
{y:i}[In The Stone|By Earth, Wind & Fire Playing]
## I found that love provides the key ##
## Unlocks the heart and souls|of you and me ##
## Love will learn|to sing its song, yeah ##
## Oh, yeah,|love is written in the stone ##
Before we take a break,|we have a challenge...
for the Wilmington game.
P-3 DonnellJones...
is challenging P-2 Jayson Flore...
on the basis of musicianship...
and choreography.
Front and center.
Man, that's my roommate.
Shit, this is messed up.
Horn Section Leader:|Keep your horns up.
Keep it together.|Don't flip up.
Dr. Lee:|Let's back him up, please.
Take it from the bridge.
Hey, yo, do your thing, kid.
[No Audio]
[Whistle Blows]
All right, take 5!
Mini-Me.
I need a volunteer|to polish the drums for tomorrow.
Man, that's a P-4's job.
Now I'm making it your job.
You don't like it, quit.
Need some help?
[Beat-Boxing Cadence]

Unh.
Unh.

## On and on, I'm on this drum ##
## And I'm tight like spandex ##

[Crowd Cheering]
[Crowd Cheering]
Dang, the crowd is louder...
than when the football team|was on the field.
'Cause down here,|it's about the marching bands, dog.
Halftime is game time.
Sean: Percussion!|Last words of advice...
for our young 'uns on-line.
You drop your sticks,|don't reach down and pick 'em up.
Just keep moving your hands.
I don't never drop my sticks.
Kid, you about to step...
in front of thousands of people.
The crowd. The lights. It's scary...
even for a hothead like you.
Yeah, I bet you it's even scarier|for somebody with a wack solo.
What?
I ain't mumblin'.
You want my solo?
Take it.
What?
Yo, son, you don't even|want to tell me that.
It's all you, son.
Come with it.
Dude, what are you doing?
He'll freeze up|like any other freshman.
His ass needs to be broken.
All right, Panthers...
let's start this season off right.
One band, one sound.
Band: A&T!
Whoo! Ha ha!
P.A.: This is the moment|you've all been waiting for.
Get on your feet...
and be prepared|for the baddest band...
in the land...
the A&T Marching Panthers...
putting it down dirty-South style!
The A.T.L. is in the house!
P.A.: Hold up!|Wait a minute!
Let us put some drums in it!
Y'all ain't ready for|what we about to put down.
The baddest drumline|in the land!
What we are, you can't smoke,|you can't sniff it...
'cause we were born with it!
Get ready to see|how we put it down...
A.T.L. style!
Drumline, get your thing on!
Unbuckle your seat belts!|That's it!
The baddest band|in the land--A&T!
You think you know...
but you have no idea.
Hey, yo, man,|that was tight, bro.
What was that?
What did we rehearse?
Why do we rehearse?
You were out there|showboating for 5 minutes.
If I wasn't able to signal...
the drum major|to wrap you up...
you'd still be out there|beating your damn drum!
Dr. Lee, sir, um,|there's an explanation.
See, Devon here thought--
Do I look like I need you...
to explain anything|to me right now?
No, sir.
I don't know what|the beef is between you...
but you'd better grill it up|and eat it...
because it is my ass|that is on the line.
Now, that is a new beginning.
That's exactly|what I'm talking about.
Great job, son.
Really something.
You were something special.
Thank you, sir.
Great job, all of you.
Now, let's see Morris Brown top that!
[Band Cheering]
Some alumni want to speak with you.
Just need one moment, sir.
There they are.
Don't keep them waiting.
New beginning!
Wagner: New beginning!
Sean...
I want you to polish|the drums tonight...
and I'd better be able|to see myself in the silver.
Yes, sir.
I left the polish|on the bottom shelf, B.
[Ernest Chewing And Sighing]
[Mumbles]|This is good.
Devon, man, I need|to tell you, brother...
you killed them out there.
You did your thing today.
You're gonna be all right, dog.
For real. You nice.
So, what's up with me|and y'all tonight?
What we gonna do?
Sorry, dog.|I already got plans.
Oh, OK, OK, all right.
Uh, you in a hurry, brother?
No. Well, yeah.
Yeah, I gotta go to this little...
meeting, a little party|or whatever, you know.
Dog tired, though.
Diedre:|Would you like to go out with me?
I can keep you awake.
Word?
Yeah.
No! No, no, I gotta...
I gotta handle my business.
I gotta do my thing on my own.
One love...and all that.
Be easy!
He spit right in my French fries.
Let me get the large fries|and diet coke, please.
I got this.|Keep the change.
Whoa. Oh, big spender.
Let me see. $2.27.
Thank you.
Dang, ease up.|We just started dating.
All-you-can-eat joints|come a little later.
So, there is a date?
Yeah, I'm trying to set up...
a little casual dating situation.
Really?
Hmm.
But southern sisters,|we don't casually date.
We have boyfriends.
Eh--heh heh!
Ooh. You killing me|with the ''B'' word.
Um...OK.
Let's just say for pretend...
OK.
What would a boyfriend do|in this situation?
He'd take me|to the Sigma party tonight.
[Hip-Hop Music Playing]
Men: ## Get going with it,|get down with it ##
## Whoo-ha!J.K. Style... ##
Laila, honey, let's do the step.
OK.
Excuse me.
I'll be right back.
Yeah.
[Music Stops]
You ladies feel a step coming on?
Dancers: Oh, yeah!
Man: Get it, girl.
Woman: Ooh, work it!
## Break it down now ##
## Sigma ##
## Ow! ##
## Phi ##
## All right ##
## Alpha Sigma Phi Alpha ##

## Oh, break it down,|oh, break it down ##
## Whoo, ahh ##
Whoo!
## Gonna break it down,|gonna break it down ##
## Gonna break it down ##

"[Butterflyz" By Alicia Keys Playing]

## Baby, I fly ##
## You're the only one|I need in my life ##
## Baby, I just don't know|how to describe ##
## How lovely|you make me feel inside ##
## You give me butterflyz ##
Mr. Taylor...
you finish|those halftime cadences yet?
Just finished them.
Good. Let's hear it.
Actually, Dr. Lee,|why don't we let Devon run it?
Oh, nah.|You the big dog.
Do your thing.
No, I really think it'd help|if somebody else played it.
I wouldn't do it no justice.
What are you two--|Beavis and Black-head?
It doesn't have to be perfect,|Devon.
I just want to hear it.
Come on. You knocked|that cadence out I did...
in, like, a minute.
You got it.
Go on, rip it, dog.
Go on, dog.
Dr. Lee: Let's go, Devon.
Band Member:|What's wrong, D?
Dr. Lee:|Mr. Miles, is there a problem?
Don't feel like playing|that wack-ass cadence.
Yo, that was a bitch move, Sean.
It's obvious,|if anybody bothered to pay attention.
Personally, I don't give a damn...
if the boy can't read a book.
He's strong, and you know it.
Have some respect|for your section, Robert.
Snares have a standard.
It's my job to protect the line|and that's what I did.
You don't like it, follow his ass out.
You lied on your application...
you lied at your audition...
when you played|the required piece...
and you lied to me.
I didn't think|it was that big a deal.
Play that.
That's the music|for next week's game...
and you can't read it.
And as far as I'm concerned...
that's a very big deal.
I'm enrolling you...
in the applied percussion course.
Man, that gives me 5 classes.
Damn right it gives you 5 classes...
and it ought to be 1 0...
especially if you plan|on getting back on the line...
anytime soon.
What you mean|getting back on the line?
I mean now you're a P-4.
If you cannot read music...
you cannot be on my field.
Man, you can't take me off the line.
I'm the best drummer you got.
Ain't can't no class teach me|how to do me.
Excuse me?
Doing me is what got me down here|in the first place.
No, lying...
is what got you down here.
And if you don't have|the honor and discipline...
to learn your craft...
then quite frankly, Devon,|you don't deserve to be here.
Laila:|I don't get you sometimes.
If music is what you love...
why wouldn't you go to class?
You love dance, right?
Why you ain't studying that?
My parents are paying|for my education.
And to them...
dancing's not a real major.
Well, is it real to you?
Because when I see you|doing your thing out on the field,
you look happy.
That seems real to me.
It's not always|about doing what you love...
all the time, Devon.
See, I don't even get that, like,|so why you even come to A&T?
I always knew I'd be here.
Both my parents went to A&T.
My mom's a Sigma Phi Alpha|my dad's the all-American.
Just--ohh.|You'll meet them at homecoming.
What?
Brother's meeting the parents.
Please take that class.

[Loud Cheering]
Announcer:|And it's halftime!
Prepare to experience 7 minutes...
of mind-blowing moves...
420 seconds of sensational sound.
Here they come...
the Morris Brown College|Marching Wolverine Band.
Drum major...
you may now take the field.
Hey, A&T, get your pencil|and paper out, baby!
"This" is how it's done.
Dr. Lee...
do you want to explain|why Devon is not on the field?
Not really.
No, let me rephrase.
I want my boy on the field now.
There are some issues|preventing that.
No, the only issue...
is for you to give me|the same show...
like you did the last game...
or there won't be|a program next year.
## It's on us ##
[Drums Playing]
I can't believe|we ain't stepping to them fools.
That's a straight up challenge.
A&T going out like some punks.
Is this how they make you|earn your scholarship?
Mr. Wayne,|Morris Brown College.
Oh, nice to meet you.|Devon.
Oh, I know who you are.|I'm a big fan.
You got a way with the crowds.
Thank you, sir.
The honorable Dr. Lee.
Whoo! I was just admiring|Devon's packing technique.
You know,|5 years as my assistant...
he still hasn't learned|to put his best players...
on the field.
Get on the bus.
You want to play some real music...
give me a call.
Heh heh! Oh, so...
now you have music|in your program.
You know, uh, if you're looking...
for a job this summer...
you can give me a call, too.
I got enough shit in my life.
I'll just use this|as toilet paper instead.
Whoo! Still got that baton|stuck up your ass, huh?
See y'all at the Classic.
[Band Practicing Scales]
Slight change, everyone.
Before we get started|with rehearsal...
Devon and Sean's|solo performance...
from the Wilmington game|will get added...
to the music for homecoming.
Choreography and formation plots|get worked out on Tuesday.
We give it a short test run|on Thursday and Friday.
Mr. Miles...strap up.
What the--
Let's get to work.
This is bullshit.
[Crowd Cheering]
A&T Announcer:|And there they are...
the homecoming king and queen...
and the A&T court.
But y'all know|it's all about the band...
at homecoming 2002.
On your feet for the greatest school...|and the baddest band in the land--
Atlanta A&T!
A&T Announcer:|Now that's why they call it homecoming.
You better recognize the realness.
Now give some love|to Dr.James Lee.
President Wagner: Yes.
[Laughs]|Meet Dr. Lee.
A&T Announcer:|They came all the way...
from Macon University...
for the annual drum battle.
There will be no discussion.
- We rule the cut.|- Hey!
So send out your best.
And remember, keep it clean.
One second.
They came here just to see you.
Hey!
Ha ha!
All: Hey!
Crowd: Boo!
A&T Announcer: That's it?
So it's amateur night, huh?
Watch this.
[Crowd Cheering]
Audience: Oh!
You see them twirl around?
Crowd: Ooh!
A&T Announcer: Oh, yeah.
The powder was real cute.
Audience: Oh!
Come on!
Good job, Roy.
You didn't tell me|you had all of this planned.
[Screams]
Break it up!|Break it up!
Hey, yo, big Rob,|you was throwin' crazy blows.
Hey, yo, big Rob,|you was throwin' crazy blows.
You had my back.|Good lookin' out.
Ain't nobody backin' up|your dumb ass.
I was throwin' for A&T.
Dancer:|Good game, huh, girl?
Second Dancer:|Yes, everything came out so beautiful.
I think we have|about 3 more games before...
Dad.
Dad: OK, let's go.
[Students Chattering]
[Student Clears Throat]
- Shh.|- Shh.
[Conversations Stop]
Why didn't nobody tell me|we was havin' a meetin'?
We don't have to tell you anything.
Devon: What's goin' on?
A'ight.|That's how it's gonna be?
[Door Opens]
Yo, Dr. Lee, man, you gotta|talk to the line. They tripping.
Look, I'm sorry about yesterday.
I got a little carried away.
There wasn't nobody steppin' up...
and I'm sayin'|you put me on the line...
'cause you know|I can make things happen.
I put you on the line|because I made a mistake...
and now I have|to do what I believe.
You are no longer a member|of this band.
Devon, there are things...
that you just|do not understand.
Devon?
Yeah. I figured you'd|just be gettin' off work.
Oh. Oh, yeah. Yeah.|I just got up.
Uh-huh.|Mom, I'm fine. It's...
it's just midterms. Yeah.
Uh--uh, actually...
I should probably have|my head in a book right now.
Yeah, I was just calling|to say hey.
Yeah, I'll talk to you later.
I love you, too.
It ain't gonna be the same|without you, man.
It's all about the tubas now, dog.
What you mean? It's always|been about the tubas, shorty.
- Pfft.|- Ha ha. Pfft nothin'.
Hey, man, you know|how Dr. Lee is about time.
I know, man.
Yeah. You're on time...
if you're 5 minutes early.
You're late if you're on time.
[Laughs]
Hey, we gonna miss you, man.
Why you actin' like|the man's gonna leave school?
Look, fried okra night|in my room.
Be there, a'ight?
You a fool.
All right, then.
Take this.|All right.
Y'all stay up.
All right.|See you in class.
Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut! Cut!
What--What--|What in the hell was that?
Huh? Snares,|y'all need to pick it up.
Mr. Wade?
What--What is it? What?
Ok, break them up|into groups...
and do somethin', you know?
Yeah!
It's about time you got down here.
What took you so long?
Look, sorry to interrupt|your practice, sir.
[Laughs]
Man, you put on a show|up there...
at the homecoming|last week, ha ha.
But I bet Dr. Lee grounded you,|didn't he?
Actually,|he kicked me off the band.
I'm sorry to hear that, son.
But see, that's what happens...
when a talented brother like yourself|don't have a real place to shine.
Uh, you know, Mr. Wade...
I was wonderin' if maybe|you had a space for me...
on your band next year.
That's a definite possibility.
But I want you to think|very carefully about that--
Then you come back and see me.
In the meantime,|I'll talk to the coaches...
about the scholarship situation.
All right.
Thanks.
All right.
Look, I might as well|tell you this up front.
What's that?
I can't really read music.
Ha ha!|Don't worry about that.
A lot of folks can't read the sign|that says ''toilet.''
Don't mean they don't know|how to use one.
You want one? OK.
Just once,|could a brother get a slice of pizza?
Hi.
Devon.
Oh, snap,|now you can see me?
Look, I panicked.
My parents were|talking all that crap...
about ''that hoodlum on the field|that started the fight,''
and I just...
Devon, I'm--I'm sorry.
It ain't about your parents.
You left me hanging.
You know how that feels?
No?
Let me show you.
Sean: Dr. Lee?
Dr. Lee.
I just wanted to catch you|before rehearsal.
I was thinkin'|that instead of promoting...
a P-2 to replace Devon...
we might just keep|the snare line at 9.
And how long have you|been thinking that?
Just this mornin'.
Are you sure?
I thought maybe it was the day|you showed us all he couldn't read...
or maybe it was the night|he took your solo.
I don't know.
But since you heard him play...
you decided that the line|or perhaps maybe just you...
would be better off|without him.
Remember|when I first made you section leader?
You were sweatin' bullets,|wondering how you could lead...
this loud, passionate group|of your peers...
and I said you would be fine.
Remember why?
You said I loved|the sound of the line...
more than the sound|of my own drum.
Yes, and you've lost sight of that...
and that's OK because we all|lose sight of things sometimes.
But if you don't get it together,|Mr. Taylor...
you're gonna have a difficult time...
leading the senate|whether Devon is on it or not.
Mr. Wade:|Now I put in a word with Mr. Hill...
to get you some financial aid|next year...
hook you up with a part-time job|this summer...
put some money in your pocket.
You know you need some money, hmm?|Hmm?
Yeah. Yeah,|everybody needs some money...
and the B.E.T. Southern Classic|comin' up.
Where you gonna sit,|on the ground?
Sit up in the skybox with us.
You can see the honeys|way good up there.
Oh, yeah!|Most def.
So now, what can you tell me?
What you mean, what can I tell you?
What you mean?|What do I mean?
Oh, I know Dr. Lee is workin' on|somethin' big for the Classic.
The man's too damn stubborn...
to sit down and take...
his butt-whippin' like a man.
You know that.
[Chuckles]
I don't know.
There you go again.|You don't know.
[Laughs]
At least a play list.
No, I don't have no idea.
Lookie here, son...
I'm talkin' about throwin' a lot|of financial aid your way next year.
You need to give me somethin'.
Meet me halfway on this thing.
You don't wanna pass up|a deal like this.
[Laughs]
Look, man, I don't know|what Dr. Lee got planned.
Whatever it is,|I hope he wipes y'all up with it.
Fake-ass alligator shoes.
Hey, yo, D.|You got another package, man.
Cool.
Ernest: Hey, if it's, uh...
some more of your mother's cookin',|I want some.
'Cause those biscuits|she sent last time...
was off the chain.
'Night.

What?!
Yeah. I'm the man.
Yeah, you the man.
That's what I'm talkin' about.
So go on and be the man|without the line.

But when you're on the field,|nobody hears you.
They hear the band.|One band.

[Jazz Playing]
Hey, what's up, Dr. Lee?
Mr. Miles.
Um, I was wondering--
Well, we were wondering...
if you needed any entrance cadences|for the Classic?
Not that I'm tryin' to get back|on line or anything.
I just wanted you|to check 'em out.
No, no, no.|Let me see.
All right.
Now the concept is all Devon's.
Yeah, but my man Sean here|had the structure on lock.
But the snare part,|all the stickin'...
it's the kid.
What, you two a couple now?
It got a old school feel to it.
You know,|sometimes you gotta take it back.
That's not a bad idea.
Not a bad idea at all.
We're gonna try something...
a little different this year...
a little of my old school...
with a little of your new...
honoring the past|and the present at the same time.
And that's what|our new direction is all about--
Bridging the gap.
Our new piece|for the B.E.T. Big Southern Classic...
was arranged by 2 of your very own...
Mr. Devon Miles and Mr. Sean Taylor.

This is bullshit.
I should just go talk to Dr. Lee.
I mean, there are 3 other P-2s...
on the bass line...
and I'm the one|that gets challenged.
Gee, I wonder why?
Honestly, dog...
I would have came after you, too.
Uh-oh...
my bad. My bad.
Hey, thanks a lot, man.
Let me see what you got.
All right.

Why you forcin' it?
[ Grunting ]|Man, I'm not forcin' it.
What you need to do is...
you need to bang the drum.
I'm bangin' it.
Nah, that's not what|I'm talkin' about, dog.
Look...

Man, I do love my drum.
When was the last time|you got some?
