People are chatting, drinking coffee, working on their computers--just business as usual at M Street Coffee in Sherman Oaks. And then there's music celebrities Brandy and Ray J, surrounded by three cameraman, talking about respect, music and business for their VH1 show "A Family Business." No one seems to be surprised, even customers are walking in front of cameras without a care. Then, at one point, Ray J gets up, yells something as he runs out the door and it's all over.
