Abstract:

There's a saying in Brooklyn that if you come from my part of town that you're from around the way. Well Lyric, Juicy and Precious are all from around the way. They all live in Crown Heights, one of the most notorious sections of Brooklyn, but to them it's just a place they call home. Around the Way Girls 2 like it's predecessor Around the Way Girls is a fast paced look at the life of some street smart woman who think they know it all but are about to get the lessons of their lives. Lyric Crenshaw has been playing the game so long that she's mastered it. Her motto has always been to use what you got to get what you want. With a face and a body like hers, the possibilities are endless. But when a love struck co-worker teaches her otherwise and she meets a man that sees right through her, she may just have to open her eyes and see that winning the game ain't everything. If Juicy Brown were to die today, her Obituary would read, "Another Welfare Recipient Bites The Dust, but things have got to change. She may agree with some of the rumors buzzing around the neighborhood about her but one, is straight up scandalous! And she's about to clear it up by any means necessary. Precious Paine, a ghetto jewel haunted by memories of a troubled childhood. Her and her crew have the game on smash, but trouble lurks around the corner. Can the love of a good man make Precious leave behind her hustle in the streets or will she become another victim of inner city life that's marked for self-destruction? These questions and many more will be answered in this high-energy urban street saga.

Angel Santiago has got it going on. She's young, fine and can get what she wants, whenever she wants it, the way she wants it. That's because she knows the key to the game. Control-that's what it's all about and nobody controls the situation like Angel does. At least not until she meets Frido. He's everything all the other guys aren't and while Angel may know the game, Frido's the one who invented it. Cream White is the mother of one, caretaker of another and one of the hardest working strippers in Brooklyn. Tired of the game, the ghetto and the hustle, she takes part in a scam that will hopefully provide her with a way out of the hood. Surprisingly, the one who introduced her to the game is the only one who holds the key to getting her out of it. All Sydni Johnson wants to do is get the hell outta New York. The worst thing her mother could have done was uproot her and the family and move her from Atlanta to Brooklyn five years ago. Now, her brother is dead, her sister is out of control, and to make matters worse, her mother's about to be marry a man Sydni can't stand. What's a sister to do? Make some loot, of course, so she can get the hell out of Brooklyn and go back down south in style. Only, when it's all said and done she might just be too smart for her own good." Everybody knows these chicks. They're straight up from around your way."
