Charlie Murphy, who plays Gusto and is Eddie Murphy's older brother, told stories of his misadventures as a part of Eddie's entourage while on the set of this film. Those stories, which featured encounters with Prince and Rick James, would later be featured on Chappelle's Show as Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories. Chris Rock revealed this in an interview years after Chappelle's Show ended and said he wished he had thought of the idea.

At the end of the movie, there is a scene in which 'Rock, Chris' haggles idiotically with Isaac Hayes. This is a spoof of a similar conversation between the same two actors in I'm Gonna Git You Sucka (1988), in which Chris Rock played a customer at Isaac Hayes' rib joint.
