My sleep got interrupted last night when I woke up feeling somewhat hot and uncomfortable and sore and needing to urinate and I had not remembered any of my dreams at this point, after urinating I was having problems going back to sleep and I was still sore and uncomfortable and I ended up talking with my brother GC which cost me even more sleep, and eventually I was able to get comfortable enough to sleep by adding an extra pillow on top of my pillow(s) but there was only about an hour left before I had to wake up to get ready for work (so I did not get enough sleep).
In was during this time when I finally had a dream that I barely remembered part of, it was possibly inspired by a FX television series called Atlanta that I have never seen an episode of, but I have seen some commercials for it and I did see about three minutes of it during a commercial break once.
All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during maybe a gray day and I was driving through a city when I stopped to park in a parking lot outside of three or more small connected (maybe not directly connected, but maybe indirectly connected) one-story brick buildings with the first building being a visitor/tourist center-like rest stop-like building where you could get pamphlets and food and drink from vending machines and use the bathroom.
I remember trying to figure out how to enter the first building or any of the buildings, eventually I figured it out, and another man probably entered the first building as well.
There were no employees there, it seemed to be a self-service type place where you get your own pamphlets and buy what you want from the vending machines and use the bathroom and sit down or leave, but I can not remember what I did other than look around and wait a bit.
At some point I tried to figure out how to enter the other two buildings, I remember maybe a woman with dark-brown skin and black hair and maybe one or two men with dark-brown skin and black hair driving up and parking in the parking lot, and they entered the second or third building so I followed them so that I could figure out how to enter the building(s) too because the design of these buildings were a bit confusing.
At some point we were inside a restaurant/diner/bar/club-like building, most people (maybe not all) in this dream had brownish colored skin (light, medium, and dark), and at some point there were some arguments and fights among some of the people and guns were drawn and some people got shot (the woman and one or two men who I had followed inside the building were involved in this as well).
This incident/part of the dream/dream and the characters in it were turned into a television series that seemed to probably be like a more violent version of the television series Atlanta, I have never seen an entire episode so I am not sure what that show is usually like, and I possibly partly knew that this was a dream or based on a dream maybe but the dream was probably not lucid because I possibly did not realize that I was still in a dream or I did not think about trying to control the dream or something like that but I am not sure.
The television series of this dream or that part of the dream followed various dream characters including the woman and the two men, the woman was involved in some drama that I can not remember (maybe romantic and baby daddy drama, and normal life struggles), and the two men were either brothers or friends who ended up joining a crew/gang and they went around with this crew/gang committing crimes.
So this television series followed these dream characters as they lived their lives, it was fiction and not a reality series so they were actors and actresses playing parts, and so there were various things that happened during this dream with a focus on drama and violence.
At the end of the dream the two men and their crew/gang were in a shootout after probably trying to rob and/or kill another crew/gang, something went wrong, and the two men who only cared about themselves decided to shoot at their enemies wildly while standing behind their crew/gang who were also shooting so they ended up shooting and killing their enemies and their own crew/gang.
The two men did not care about their crew/gang, they were just in it for the money/fun/protection/et cetera, and so after carelessly shooting and killing their own crew/gang and the enemy they simply shrugged their shoulders and celebrated their victory and said how they only cared about protecting each other because they were homies (their words) and said how they did not care about their crew/gang anyway and they left before the police could show up but I woke up.
