The group meets later that day, and Kris inquires about the boys' troubled reputations. He encourages the crew to enter a "Feel Da Beat" music contest for a chance to win the grand prize: a trip to America to network with industry professionals. Jonah and the boys work with Kool Kris to craft their submission: a rap song with an anti-bullying message.�
