As we all know, the infamous rap group known as Kid N Play (which was The duo was composed of Christopher “Kid” Reid and Christopher “Play” Martin) dominated the early 90’s with the House Party franchise. That film franchise combined with a stellar hip hop career put those two in the rap history books while it also introduced the world to a brand new type of comedy films; films that consisted of rappers, when at the time rappers were only introduced into gansta films.
Well fast forward 22 years later and neither of the two are at that same superstar status, as they both have had careers doing different things. It seems that they had separated from doing projects together.
Anyway, several days ago, the duo posted an open letter to the Hollywood industry announcing that they have paired again, and that they are interested in jumping back into films. Here is the letter;
Dear Extended Family, Friends & Fans of Kid N Play:

SkyKapz is an inspiring and entertaining story of two lifelong friends as they work and play together at a major metropolitan airport while struggling to break through in the entertainment industry. Christopher “Kid” Reid and Christopher “Play” Martin (a/k/a “Kid N Play”) will play the lead roles, while experienced Hollywood actors will be placed in key supporting roles and cameos from some of the leading figures in the comedy and hip-hop industries.
