The college they choose is Harris University, where they won a full scholarship. However, once they reach the college, they realize that the scholarship only covers their tuition and not their dorm room expenses, so they have to find a way to make money to pay for their room and board. To make some quick cash, Kid and Play turn their dorm room into a recording studio and start producing music. They team up with a group of aspiring artists on the campus, including Zilla (Tisha Campbell-Martin), Jamal (Martin Lawrence), Sharane (Queen Latifah), and Bilal (Bowlegged Lou). Together, they form a musical group, "The Funky Fresh Boyz," and start working on their first album. Apart from their music project, the boys and their friends plan another house party that soon turns into a riot, causing them to be kicked out of their dorms. As a result, they are forced to find a new place to live and work on their album. In the process, they encounter several challenges, including rival gangs and a crooked music industry executive named Veda (Iman). The movie also features several cameo appearances from famous rappers and musicians, including Queen Latifah, Heavy D, Doug E. Fresh, and Ralph Tresvant. The plot of House Party 2 is essentially a coming-of-age tale about friendship, love, and overcoming obstacles. It explores themes such as peer pressure, the value of education, and the importance of staying true to oneself. One of the highlights of the movie is its soundtrack, which features several popular hip-hop and rap tracks of the time, including "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody" by Kid 'n Play and "It's Over Now" by Ralph Tresvant.
