Kid N’ Play Celebrate 20 Years Of House Party

As part of the Tribeca Film Festival kick off this past Monday, Kid N’ Play celebrated the 20 year anniversary of their movie, House Party.  Funny how time flies. The pair reunited in February on The Mo’Nique Show and last September, DJ Jazzy Jeff revealed that he and Will Smith turned down the starring roles. Well Blackvoices caught up with the duo and had them speak on their cult classic.

Christopher “Play” Martin: You know, the great thing about it, is that it doesn’t feel like 20 years. It’s amazing, and the good thing about it is not to take yourself seriously, which I can say I wasn’t perfect with. I got a chance to rest and look back and see the groundwork that me and Kid laid out. When I look back at the music and comic book that Marvel put out, we accomplished a lot of good work.

Christopher “Kid” Reid: It was great, awesome and very humbling. It was a collaborative project, and I had the opportunity to work with some great people who made me and Play look good. People think that this makes you feel confident, but it’s totally the opposite. I feel blessed and humbled by what people think of our work.

    And ppl wonder where the Soulja Boy’s and New Boyz and The Van and Chicken Noodle Soup and all that shit comes from, comes from right here, so think about that next time u hear about a new dance, do ur HW

  • pissed

    hahah I was a kid when the 1st House Party came out also, my cousin actually had to take me because I wasn’t old enough to go see it without an adult haha…it sucks because Kid n Play, Heavy D, & others that made “feel good” hip hop back then don’t get the credit they should, when they wernt selling out, they just made hiphop music there way. Either way, Kid & Play and House Party are timeless….and oh yeah….till this day….i still say KID won that battle! ha!
