Suit yourself, Clarence. But Delta City begins construction in two months. That's two million workers living in trailers. That means drugs... gambling... prostitution. Virgin territory for the man who knows how to open up new markets. One man could control it all, Clarence.

Gangsters are criminals who lead a life in the "underworld"; that is, raised in an environment filled with gangs, drug dealing, gun running, chop shopping, and poverty.
