These two tracks make it worth it:
The De La Soul track, I Can't Call It is AMAZING. It shares the lyrical style from their first three albums but the production is later (no samples) and has these wonderfully funky low synth tones reminiscent to their OOOH single. I think this is one of their best tracks post Buhloone Mindstate.
The Inspectah Deck/U-God track is also incredible. Amazing flows and production style is near perfect. This would have been a perfect track for the classic Enter the Wu Tang 36 Chambers (although this probably wasn't made until way after).
Other notable tracks, but definitely par at best, Krs-One, Large Prof. & Pete Rock, and maybe the Sadat X & Grand Puba. The rest are horrible--complete throwaways--and that's why they're not on real albums. I am a huge fan of, or was, of many of these artists but they simply don't deliver on this album (i.e.- the Erykah Badu & D'Angelo cover track of the Marvin Gaye song is embarrassing. It was a shame too because I really love both these artists and wanted to like it. ********* But, for a really amazing track that is way too good to be buried on a soundtrack from these two, see: The 'Notic from the Men in Black Soundtrack. The Roots, D'Angelo and Erykah Badu together and it is nothing short of brilliant! They briefly cover Shining Star by Earth Wind and Fire and it is sooooo good.********)
