Two cousins, with different views on art versus commerce, on their way up through the Atlanta rap scene; Earnest 'Earn' Marks, an ambitious college dropout and his estranged cousin, who suddenly becomes a star.
Season Two takes place during a time when the city Earn and Alfred aka Paper Boi is going through some changes. "Robbin' Season" refers to the time around Christmas when, for the first time, there is an influx of money in an impoverished area, and people are trying to get that money and also get holiday gifts — which makes people very "tense and desperate" and often causes crime to increase.
Earn, Alfred ‘Paper Boi’ Miles, Darius, and Van are back in their hometown. But the question is, has Atlanta changed, or have they?
Taking place almost entirely in Europe, Season Three finds Earn, Alfred / ‘Paper Boi,’ Darius and Van in the midst of a successful European tour, as the group navigates their new surroundings as outsiders, and struggle to adjust to the newfound success they had aspired to.
