He decides to build an escape from the life by making his biggest deal yet, converting the coke to cash and running off to start a new life.

Note: I didn’t find a clear shot of Tyrone McCullough. He is the drummer on stage when The Curtis Mayfield Experience is playing “Pusher Man” but can only be seen for a moment. I tried to find another picture of him but he only played that one song in the movie and on the soundtrack.
