The film is a black version of the 2012 male stripper movie, Magic Mike, starring Channing Tatum. According to the film's director, Jean-Claude La Marre, "There was one glaring omission in Magic Mike, and that was people of color. We figured that was a missed opportunity for them and we jumped on it." Although Chocolate City was endorsed by Tatum, the actor fell shy of fully participating in the film, after being approached by the producers to do so.


In the United States, the film was released in a limited release and through video on demand on May 22, 2015. Freestyle Releasing handled the theatrical release with Paramount Home Entertainment handling the video on demand and home media release of the film. The film will also debut on BET Networks June 10, 2015.
