For any rap fan out there, you will probably notice that the biggest names in rap are all here. Bad Boys II the soundtrack, essentially created by P. Diddy, was so hyped, parties were thrown all over New York to commemorate its release. So naturally, I was excited, being a huge fan of rap, but did the album really live up to its hype?
Almost every big name in rap is here. You got Nelly, Jay-Z, P Diddy, 50 Cent, Notorious B.I.G., and even Justin Timberlake. And with good production, you'd come to expect everything from this album. But does it really deliver all that well. Sure, some tracks are hot on here, such as La La La by Jay-Z, the meanest MC in rap, and the heavily played track, Shake Ya Tailfeather. It features Nelly, P. Diddy, and that other guy. (No, seriously, why would they put Murphy Lee on this track?) Well, anyway, although I don't have much love for these three rappers, the track is pretty awesome! Other great tracks are 50 Cent feat. Notorious B.I.G., and maybe some others, but generally this album is pretty average. If it was any other album, it would be great, but with the biggest names in black music, this album should have brought us a lot more than it really did.
