An opening flashback recounts how the series' central figures, Ikku (Ryusuke Komakine), Tom (Shingo Mizusawa) and Mighty (Eita Okuno), formed the rap group Sho-gung in their hometown of Fukuya, Saitama prefecture. The story picks up two years after the group disbanded. Mighty has left behind his broccoli farm and moved to Tokyo in search of new opportunities; he tags along with hit hip-hop group Gokuakucho (which roughly translates as "mean bastards"), but management robs him of his long-awaited chance to move up to the finals of a big rap contest. Mighty relocates with his g.f., Kazumi (Megumi Saito), to Tochigi, a prefecture that resembles Saitama in its geographic distance from Tokyo as well as in its dreary, provincial character. Sadly, Mighty's rekindled musical passion does not prevent him from running afoul of the yakuza, and his rashness leads to a rumble that coincides with a local open-air hip-hop event where Ikku and Tom try to make a comeback.
