The original movie followed Kid (Christopher ‘Kid’ Reid) and Play (Christopher ‘Play’ Martin) as the latter plans an epic house party.

The party turns out to be the most incredible night of their young lives as they deal with nosy neighbors (John Witherspoon, Bebe Drake), Kid’s strict father (Robin Harris) and a trio of thugs (Paul Anthony, Bowlegged Lou and B-Fine of Full Force).

The movie marked the writing and directing debut of Reginald Hudlin (Boomerang) and helped legitimize hip-hop as a musical art form.
