Backstage at Budz House is a 2012 independent comedy movie that follows the story of a family living in Los Angeles trying to make ends meet in a struggling economy. The plot revolves around a talented DJ named Bud Howard (played by Jorge Diaz), who owns and throws parties at his eponymous house. Kevin Hart plays the role of Pupa, Bud's friend and hype man, and Danielle E. Hawkins takes on the role of Alix, Bud's love interest.

The movie opens with Bud spinning his latest track, and it quickly becomes clear that he is a skilled DJ with a passion for music. However, Bud is also struggling with the pressures of adulthood, including finding a job and making enough money to support himself and his family. His mother, played by Luenell Campbell, is a strict Pentecostal who disapproves of Bud's party lifestyle.

Bud's luck changes when he is discovered by a record producer named Ulysses (played by Richard Grieco) who offers him a chance at fame and fortune. However, this opportunity comes with a catch - Bud needs to come up with a large amount of money to fund his own record. Bud's determination to make his dream a reality leads him to sign up for a reality TV show, where viewers vote on which DJs will win a record deal.

Bud's journey to winning the TV show becomes a wild ride full of twists and turns. Along the way, he faces stiff competition from other DJs, including his rival, DJ Izm (played by J.T. Jackson). Bud also finds himself drawn to Alix, who helps him refine his sound and gives him the emotional support he needs to succeed.

The movie is filled with memorable scenes, including a dance-off between Bud and DJ Izm, a hilarious encounter with a drug dealer, and a touching moment between Bud and his mother. The cast gives strong performances, particularly Diaz as the charismatic and lovable Bud.
