Anyone trying to make it can relate to Earn (Donald Glover), whether they are trying to do music, a business, or a regular job. His whole persona, thus far, has been “fake it ’til you make it.” Tonight, this was an epic fail for him.
Paperboi (Brian Tyree Henry) is doing a celebrity basketball game, playing alongside Lil Zane, Lloyd, and Jaleel White. He has immediately clashed with Justin Bieber. No, Justin Bieber is not on “Atlanta,” in their universe he is black and Austin Crute played the role.
Meanwhile, Earn, always trying to get ahead, runs into a woman, Janice (Jane Adams) who calls him out. She knows him as Alonzo and he uses this to get in good with her. But, when they get to the networking event, she flips on “Alonzo,” calling him all kinds of derogatory names, and accuses him of stealing her position in the company, which leads to “Atlanta” fans making Alonzo trend.
