"The three songs performed by CB4 are loose remakes of real rap songs. 'Straight Out of Locash' was 'Straight Outta Compton' by N.W.A, 'Sweat of my Balls' was 'Talk Like Sex' by Kool G. Rap & D.J. Polo and 'Rapper's Delight' was originally by the Sugar Hill Gang. The rap group CB4 claim to be from the town of Locash. LoCash is in fact the name of one of the film's screenwriters, Robert LoCash."
