“Stomp the Yard” presents to us DJ Williams (Columbus Short), a Los Angeles college kid who’s a very talented krump dancer. Both DJ and Duron (Chris Brown), his younger brother, like to compete in dance competitions for cash, along with their crew that they call the Good Squad. But things don’t go well after they win one particular competition when their opposing crew decides to ambush them, resulting in the murder of Duron. DJ ends up getting arrested for assault and sent to reside with his mother, aunt, and uncle in Atlanta, Georgia.

Here he attends a fictional Black university called Truth University where his Uncle Nate (Harry J. Lennix) happens to be the physical plant director, he enrolls DJ in a work-study program where does maintenance work in an attempt to teach the boy some responsibility.
