Top 7 Hip-Hop Movie Soundtracks – Bangin’ Background Music


Say what you want about the movie, but this soundtrack kicked ass. From Usher to Babyface to TLC, LaFace’s roster were the front and center stars, but when they weren’t soaking up the shine everybody else was dropping bombs, too. The album was definitely heavy on the uptempo breezy R&B, but leave it to both Tha Dogg Pound and Tupac to come roughen up the edges. “Definition of a Thug Nigga” pushes this one over the edge right along with “One In A Million” (Pete Rock & CL Smooth) and “Waiting for You” (Tony! Toni! Tone).


Okay, this may be my favorite soundtrack to a hip-hop movie ever—flat out! It was chockfull of jams. It was where I was first introduced to The Notorious B.I.G. with a song that quite possibly is one of his best ever recorded (“Party & Bullshit”). Let’s face it, though, Bad Boy owned this record; even their lesser known associates like Jesse West aka 3rd Eye were gettin busy.
