Trivia

Leonard Roberts, who plays Sean, was actually very sick when the last scenes of the "BET southern classic" were filmed, which is why he is so sweaty and looks slightly weak at the end of the film.
Nick Cannon did his own drumming on screen while his double, Jason Price, did majority of the close-ups with complex techniques.
While Morris Brown is a real college in Atlanta, there is no real Atlanta A&T. The filming was done at Clark University in Atlanta and at Morris Brown. The performers (aside from those from Morris Brown) were recruited from high school and university bands all over the Atlanta and Metro Atlanta area. High school band director Don Roberts was recruited to turn the performers into real, convincing bands.
Nick Cannon prepared for his role by practicing in a hotel suite with his double and drummer, Jason Price, as well as sleeping with the drumsticks tied to his hands.
The fraternity featured throughout the film is Kappa Kappa Psi, the national honorary band fraternity. The actual Kappa Kappa Psi flag, colors, and symbols, and customary shouts and chants are used in the film. Symbols and letters for their sister organization, Tau Beta Sigma, the national honorary band sorority, can also be seen throughout the film.
One of the bands performing in the "BET Southern Classic" was Grambling State University's Tiger Marching Band in Grambling, Louisiana, home of the legendary Coach Eddie Robinson.
Da Brat was considered for the role of Diedre.
