Hey MMT Fam! We’re really looking forward to seeing Mike Epps portray the late comedic legend Richard Pryor, but until then his next project, “The Purge” parody MEET THE BLACKS, is coming to a theater near you on April 1st.
So what’s the movie about? A big move to Beverly Hills, King Bach chasing you with a gun, Mike Tyson in a perm, and an angry mob of neighbors attempting to kill you on the one night crime is legal… this is probably what Carl Black (Mike Epps) and family would describe if you were to ever meet the Blacks. Prepare to be entertained as you witness this family of highly untrained, nonprofessionals do what it takes to get through the purge with their number one rule to surviving the night – doing what white people don’t do in scary movies!

MEET THE BLACKS synopsis
The Black family is getting out of Chicago in hopes of a better life. After Carl Black (Mike Epps) recently came into some unexpected funds, Carl takes his family and leaves the hustling lifestyle behind for something better. Carl, his wife Lorena (Zulay Henao), son Carl Jr., daughter Allie Black (Bresha Webb) and cousin Cronut (Lil Duval) pack up and move to Beverly Hills. As luck wouldn’t have it, Carl couldn’t have picked a worse time to move. They arrive right around the time of the annual purge, when all crime is legal for twelve hours.
