Taylor recently discussed why he decided to do a sequel, Taylor explained in a statement:
“We first made the film because it is rare that we get comedies that speak to the urban culture. After the success of the first film culturally and theatrically, it was only right to service the fans that were demanding a sequel. This is why we make art and why it’s important for more black filmmakers to emerge.”
