Product Description

Amazon.ca

It’s no surprise that More Music from 8 Mile is a great soundtrack collection. Eminem’s semi-autobiographical big-screen debut takes place in the mid-1990s, a time when a considerably diverse group of MCs kept rap fresh with intellectually engaging party music. These jams rocked the party back when Em’s Detroit hip-hop scene was nothing more than a basement cipher circle. A lot’s changed since then, but every single selection on More Music withstands the test of time. The intro to Mobb Deep’s thug anthem, "Shook Ones Part II," still sends chills down the spine, and Biggie’s opening verse on "Get Money" proves why he may be the greatest rapper of all time. One minor quibble: it would’ve been nice if some of the more obvious tracks were substituted by less popular tunes--say, Outkast’s "Crumblin’ Erb" for "Player’s Ball" and Pharcyde’s "Soul Flower" remix (never released as a single) instead of their 1995 hit, "Runnin." --Rebecca Levine

4.0 out of 5 stars A Taste Of Old-School Rap For Newbies May 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
There are many people in my country that never even knew hip-hop. If they knew, they never liked it, because it was a black thing, nothing to do with white people. Until Eminem came. Like him or not, he made many, many people like and know what hip-hop is, because suddently they knew rap was not a black-only music. Eminem made me like rap, actually... Before him, I've never paid attention to hip-hop. That happened in Brazil, but I'm sure there are lots of people in US who started to like rap because of Eminem, and a part of them are newbies, they know nothing about the old-school rappers, the ones who started it all. This CD may be useful for them, it'll make that kind of newbies to know and, hopefully, like the major guys who made it all happen. And it'll be a good thing for those who already like them too.
Even though this isn't the best compilation for "Old-School rappers" out there, it's not bad. It has the two greatest rappers of all time: 2Pac in "Gotta Get Mine" and Notorious B.I.G. in "Juicy". There are lots of awesome songs besides those, such as "Shook Ones Pt. II" by Mobb Deep (I didn't know him), "Feel Me Flow" by Naughty By Nature (I knew them, but not this song) and "Runnin'" by Pharcyde (didn't know about him either). All of the songs in this CD are played atleast once, maybe in a background or something, in the 8Mile movie (unlike the movie's Motion Picture Soundtrack, since the only track of it that plays in the movie is Eminem's "Lose Yourself", at the end credits). It would be nice if this soundtrack had something like a Run DMC song, since we're dealing with old-school rappers, and also atleast a track by Eminem.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best collection of classic rap tracks ever Sept. 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
Wow. As if the "inspired" soundtrack (which was still great, mind you) wasn't enough, Shady Records has decided to bless us with another great soundtrack...the film's REAL soundtrack, featuring songs that actually WERE in the movie. And wow, they chose the songs well. Without a doubt, "More Music From 8 Mile" is a must-own for those who aren't familiar with what is probably the greatest era of rap - the early- to mid-1990s' gangsta scene. Specifically, if you want to hear some classic material by Tupac, Notorious B.I.G., Mobb Deep, and Wu Tang Clan among others, you must own this CD.
The CD opens with the infamous Mobb Deep kicking "Shook Ones, Part II", one of the most sonically pleasing rap tracks ever. The eerie piano riffs and chuncky bass of this song were a sensation in 1995, and even today, this song is still ill as ever. Next up is Notorious B.I.G.'s immortal "Juicy", who uses his beautiful lyricism to diss all who said that he'd never succeed in life, with style over a sweet Mtume sample. Biggie's verses are just as fantastic on "Get Money" with his Jr. Mafia homies, another track worth treasuring. You also get to hear Outkast at their earliest and finest on "Player's Ball", plus Tupac and MC Breed hitting hard with "Gotta Get Mine". And how could one forget the hard-as-nails, acid rain bass and brutal lyrics of Mobb Deep's other inclusion on this soundtrack, "Survival of the Fittest"?
There's also a lot of material from the Wu Tang Clan and its members on this album. The best inclusion is the Clan's "C.R.E.A.M.", which, with its oriental-sounding piano riffs and vivid lyricism by Clan members Raekwon and Inspectah Deck, is perhaps one of the most beautiful rap songs ever to grace the ears of hip-hop fans worldwide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Compilation June 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
When I first saw this CD, I thought Eminem made some more songs but when I got the CD, he didn't appear on the album once! Rather than putting on rappers on a soundtrack, this CD consists of all the music that was played throughout the movie of '8 Mile'. I love this CD, it has brought back all the old beats that the world once saw and this is full of great songs. I remember hearing these songs ages ago when I was a kid and it's good to hear them again and finally find out who sings the songs. My favorites are:
Mobb Deep- Shook Ones, part 2
Biggie- Juicy
Naughty by Nature- Feel Me Flow
Method Man and Mary J. Blige- All I Need
Pharcyde- Runnin
Mobb Deep- Survival of the Fittest
I'm not saying all the rest of the songs are below average, their still good but I enjoy these songs the most (even though I hate Mobb Deep). The only weakness on here is probably Junior M.A.F.I.A- Get Money coz I hate Junior M.A.F.I.A. If you liked rap back in the ol' days, get this.

5.0 out of 5 stars The REAL Soundtrack! March 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
O.K. first of all nobody should be surprised that Eminem is not on this CD. All you have to do is look at the back of the case (or if you buy it online, look at the track listing) and it tells you what artists are on this CD. This is a great compilation of mid-90's hip-hop tracks (for those of you who didn't know the movie takes place in 1995). And another thing that you should know, "Temtations" by 2pac is not on this CD there are only 12 songs. And there are other songs that should be on this CD like "Who Shot Ya" & "Players Anthem" that where in the movie, but even without those songs this is still one of the greatest soundtracks of all-time. And even though I do already own some of the CD's that these songs are taken from, it's nice to have them all on one disc (very convenient). So anyone that is a fan of mid-90's hip-hop or if you were feelin' the songs in the movie you should definitely pick this up!
