After the break up of N.W.H., Ice Cold formed his own group, the Ice Plant ( a parody of the group C&C Music Factory). Tone Def became a flower-child emcee (a reference to P.M. Dawn) and released a song similar to the group's signature hit "Set Adrift on Memory Bliss." Meanwhile, Tasty Taste also went solo and released several dis tracks ( a reference to the practice of some emcees at that time and was also practiced by the remaining N.W.A. members after Ice Cube went solo ).

An edited version for television has the profanity replaced with sound effects and the actors' mouths are blocked with images of hats. Hats are also used to block nudity, scatological images, and profanity in the song titles. See more »
I'm too old to know (or care) exactly what the difference between rap and hip-hop is. And, being Canadian, it's likely that I've never actually seen MTV, but I'm not certain.
But I thought this film was very funny when I saw it, a bright little satire. Hip-hop culture is so pervasive these days that it's difficult not to keep hearing about it over and over. (If only we could say the same about bagpipe music.) I got most of the jokes (at least I think I did). Sure, it's derived from Spinal Tap, but there are lots of targets that could stand a Tap treatment. Just not the Carpenters, they're sacred.
