Mario Van Peebles on We The Party
Why was music such an integral part of this movie?
A. "When I first came up with the idea for We the Party, I knew music would have to be a huge component; and it had to be legit. My teenagers swagged me out in a 'snapback' and skinny jeans and I went with them 'incognegro' to the hottest all age underground hip-hop spots. We heard the New Boyz, YG, Pink Dollaz, The Rej3ctz, and of course the dog father Snoop. To top it off, we cast them all in the movie!
A lot of people are moved by YG's performance of the song 'Success' in the film. I wrote that song especially for his character; you can check out the video on YouTube."
