The soundtrack to an absolutely horrible movie was centered around hip-hop, naturally and features one of the best rap songs in the past decade, Jay-Z's "Hey Papi". It is a tremendous look at a young boy growing up, wondering if his fathers lifestyle is completely normal. The sound systems to it are out of this world, and bringing a real boy to repeat the title and not Jay is gold, or should I say platinum? There are other fairly enjoyable tracks to this cd, including costar Janet Jackson's "Doesn't Really Matter" and the infamous "Thong Song", among others. It was refreshing to not have to hear any scenes from the awful movie in the soundtrack.
A few of the songs are a little uncommon and unenjoyable, sounding like a combination of rap and raggae that just doesn't quite fit. But, because of one of the songs, it is well worth your time.
