As part of our year-long #HipHop50 celebration, and to close out #BlackMusicMonth, Queue Points is going down memory lane to discuss the impact of the timeless Black youth coming-of-age film House Party. They are joined by special guest Jordan Clark, a comic book writer and co-host of the podcast White People Won’t Save You. The fellas discuss the impact of House Party on hip hop culture, highlighting its representation of teenage life and high school expectations. They analyze how the film broke through as a landmark mainstream movie for hip hop, leading to the release of other successful films in the era. They offer their thoughts on the movie's historical context, the characters, and their impressions of the recent movie reboot (Spoiler Alert: they don’t like it).
The lively discussion explores the significance of House Party in black teen cinema and hip hop culture, making it a must-listen episode for any fan of the movie and its impact.
