    score, fronting for someone

    Hello,

    I don't understand what the words in bold mean.

    Guy #1: You're not gettin' paid to ask questions. You're gettin' paid to make sure questions don't get asked.
    Guy #2: Was this your score, Junior?
    Guy #1: I'm fronting for somebody. That's all you need.
    Guy #2: You know this is just a down payment, right?
    Guy #1: I know what kind of skeev you are.

    Thanks in advance

    Your score = you were the mastermind behind this crime and would reap most (if not all) of the profits.
    Guy #1: I'm fronting for somebody. That's all you need.
    "I'm fronting for someone" means that you have been hired by someone else to commit the crime.
    Guy #2: You know this is just a down payment, right?
    A "down payment" usually refers to an initial sum of money paid to collect or retrieve an item, with the understanding that future payments will be made to pay off the debt.

    Guy #1: I know what kind of skeev you are.
    "Skeev" is a slang term to describe a person of questionable moral character, or a very "sketchy" personality.
