Mike Epps is tackling the spoof genre with his new flick Meet The Blacks, and HipHollywood caught up with him and the cast at the star-studded world premiere in Los Angeles to talk about making a parody film, and poking fun at serious racial issues.

“Right now with all the racial issues and diversity issues going on, you gotta make light of it,” said Epps. “If we can’t laugh at sh*t, it’ll kill us.”

The film, which is a parody of “The Purge” film franchise, follows the Black family as they settle into their new home in Beverly Hills on the night of the annual purge, and as you can imagine, they aren’t going down without a fight.

“I wanted to do this because I was a huge fan of The Purge and for some reason I was following the franchise and I was like, this would be hilarious if there was a black family in the purge,” said director Deon Taylor.

Taylor enlisted some of the worlds best comics like George Lopez, Gary Owen, Charlie Murphy, Lil Duval and King Bach to appear in the film, and also got cameos from Snoop Dogg, Mike Tyson and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle.

Check out the video above for more from Taylor and the rest of the cast about Meet the Blacks, and hit the flip for pics from the red carpet.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
