“Uptown Anthem,” anybody? “Juice (Know the Ledge)“? Hell, “Is It Good To You“?!? Okay, maybe you ain’t fuck with that last track like I did, but this shit is a masterpiece. Any album that has standout Big Daddy Kane and Eric B & Rakim cuts is worthy of going down in the annals of hip-hop history as a notable contribution. They even gave the West Coast some love with MC Pooh and Too $hort appearances.

Okay, I won’t front like I loved this soundtrack wholeheartedly. There were blatant questionable moments on it, but there were some equally incredible standout moments, too. And this shit was like two albums long. “Benz Or Beamer?” “Hedz Ain’t Ready?” “All About My Fetti?” Man, this joint worked hard to have songs that everybody could vibe out to. In the end, it was a spotty compilation, but it really represented what was going on in music at the time.
