Jimmy, the drug dealer to Jabari’s best friend, has finally had enough of the side effects of his product. He sees how it makes Jabari act and feels like he needs to make a change. Jimmy starts selling a new drug called Clear which doesn’t have any side effects and allows people to be more themselves. As time passes, the Clear drug becomes more popular in the city and replaces all other drugs as what everyone wants.
Tyrone Griffin Jr. Portray Ky
Ky, the protagonist of the story, is a perfect example of how to be a man. He has been through so much and still comes out strong because he knows what it means to suffer and keep pushing. Ky doesn’t know who his father is and he doesn’t care, but he still manages to give his all in everything he does. He never stops dreaming about being able to do something with his music and he never lets anyone tell him that he can’t do anything.
Laura Harrier Portray Carmen
Carmen and Jabari first met in college, where they were both studying art. They soon became close friends and started dating not too long after. When Carmen heard about Jabari’s plans to attend grad school at the New York School of Visual Arts, she decided to follow him there. However, when they moved in together in Brooklyn, their relationship began to have some serious issues.
Vanessa Hudgens Portray Karina
Wow, I’m the luckiest girl in the world! Meadow said to herself as she danced through her living room. She had just been cast as Karina, her favorite character on Kid Cudi’s new music television special, Entergalactic. I can’t wait to tell Karina! She thought aloud. Meadow was so excited for the opportunity that she had decided to call her best friend and tell her about it first before telling anyone else.
Christopher Abbott Portray Reed
Once Reed realizes that he can’t stop being himself, and he can only control what he does with his life, he decides to make the best of it. He starts taking art classes in school again, and while they are hard at first, they become easier as time goes on. In addition to the art classes in school, Reed has a part-time job working at a local art gallery. His boss is really supportive of him and helps him learn more about his love for drawing.
Daniella Balbuena Portray Nadia
Nadia has always been a little different. She was born with the power to see ghosts, and while this ability has helped her in some ways, it also left her feeling isolated. But Nadia is ready to put all of that behind her when she stumbles across a group of people who share her ability…and they want to train her to use it for good. Now Nadia finally feels like she belongs somewhere; that she’s not alone anymore.
Jaden Smith Portray Jordan
The first thing that caught my attention in the short preview was Jordan’s voice. His voice had a certain liveliness to it and matched the tone of the show well. The second thing I noticed was how fresh this show looked, which is something I would not expect from a television special.
Keith David Portray Mr. Rager
Mr. Rager is a recurring character in the world of Kid Cudi. He’s first seen on the opening track of his debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day, and then again at the end of The Prayer. But it wasn’t until his debut music video for Day ‘N’ Nite that Mr. Rager was fully introduced to the masses as a being who represents all that is good and evil with no regard for anything in-between.
