Maestro Harrell (Randy Wagstaff)

Having lost his mother to the streets at a young age and having never known his father, reputedly an eastside corner boy who later became a major drug trafficker, Randy grew up in group homes under the supervision of Maryland's Department of Social Services. He is now blessed to have been placed in a foster home with a caring foster parent, Miss Anna, who died in a fire set as revenge for Randy's cooperation with the police. Now, Randy's worst nightmare has been realized - transfer to a Baltimore group home - and his transition hasn't been made easier by his reputation as a snitch.
