The harsh realities of inner city life are portrayed, with teens engaging in fistfights and crime (like car theft and acts of vandalism), as well as gang violence that leads to a drive by shooting (some blood is shown). Characters wearing low-cut and/or tight costumes perform some sensual dance moves, humor is derived from some sexual innuendo, and passionate kisses are shown. Mild and moderate profanities are used throughout the script. Alcohol is served at parties and clubs, and a foster parent is depicted as an alcoholic.
