** Also [[spoiler: DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale. Melvin gets sick of Jody's attitude and tells him in no uncertain terms what he would do to him if he were back in prison, but even at his darkest he's still the father figure in the movie and ultimately a positive influence on Jody's life. Rodney's attempted rape is his MoralEventHorizon.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: Tupac Shakur was originally going to star as Jody, but was infamously murdered before production got underway. The film pays homage to him to referring to him as Jody's older (and murdered) brother and having a huge picture of him hanging up in Jody's room as well as other family photos showing Tupac in this role.

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: Jody and Sweet Pea turn off the power to Yvette's house while Rodney is alone inside and ambush him when he comes out to check it, ultimately gunning him down in the streets. It's implied that Yvette was in on this scheme. None of them are shown facing any repercussions.]]

* MommasBoy: Deconstructed. Juanita and Melvin both want Jody to grow up and stop being selfish. They also want him out of the house. HEck, Jody even gets mocked for living with his mother.
