Brad Gluckman (Kennedy) is a wannabe rap star from Malibu who acts and talks like he's from the "'hood." Concerned that his son is going to embarrass him during his campaign to become the governor of California, Brad's wealthy father and his campaign manager (Underwood), hire two trained actors (Diggs and Anderson) to disguise themselves as "real life gangstaz", and kidnap his son, dropping him off in the "real hood" in Compton, in an effort to scare the ghettofied attitude and behavior out of him.

The rapping scene where Brad angers the audience is a spoof of a similar scene from the 2002 movie 8 Mile starring white rapper, Eminem. See more
The gunfight in the park supposedly takes place in South Central Los Angeles, with a view of the L.A. skyline in the background. But in fact, there is no view of the skyline of Los Angeles from anywhere in South Central. The view of downtown L.A. from that angle can only be viewed from Echo Park. See more
