One of the song from the movie, "Come and Pet the P.U.S.S.Y.," is a parody of the song "Gonna Make You Sweat" by C&C Music Factory. It also spoofed the conflict between C&C Music Factory and Martha Wash, who was uncredited for singing the chorus of the song.

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 ).
