The lineup spread across the soundtrack for Hustle & Flow cannot be denied. T.I., Juvenile, 8 Ball, and MJG, E-40, Trillville, Boyz N da Hood, Mike Jones, and several others make this a timely and fitting companion to the film. More importantly, in keeping the connection between film and soundtrack as tight as possible, a couple tracks performed by actor Terrence Howard — as Hustle and Flow protagonist DJay, a pimp turned MC — are included, along with a handful of dialogue bits. Al Kapone, a Memphis-based rapper asked by director Craig Brewer to write DJay's rhymes, also appears, only adding to the authenticity. While the soundtrack complements the film, most of the tracks provided by the big guns aren't top-level. That doesn't mean that the disc is useless for those who don't see the film (altogether, the tracks are more memorable than the average cuts granted to a soundtrack), but it's more New Jersey Drive or Bad Boys II than Juice or Above the Rim.
Greed is a deadly weed...
I have a respectable music collection... and, aside from a handful of tracks (probably less than 10), I've paid for just about every bit of it (some was gifted). I have purchased about 400 songs from iTunes over the past 3 years, and I would like to keep that pace. But, this approach where you relegate the best material to "Album Only" ... well, that's gonna send me to the real record stores (don't forget: there's a LOT of record stores online, and with a lot of labels selling their own stuff now, it's not hard to get good music). iTunes is a great thing... don't screw it up by getting greedy. I came here *well* before the Oscars, looking for this soundtrack... couldn't find it. Now that "Hard out here for a pimp" won an Oscar, try and deny that you're, in effect, raising the price of this one song by 1000% because you KNOW people are going to come looking for it. "Hard out here for a Pimp" is an AWESOME song (Swerve is pretty good too, but you need to credit Lil' Boosie)... but I'm not going to buy it from you because you're being VERY uncool.
It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp
Please make it accessible to buy
Same ol' iTunes crap!
This is starting to make me look towards alternatives. First, Apple doesn't even provide this album for 6 months. Now that it wins an Oscar, they scramble to put it up...but only with the best songs in the notorious "Album Only" setting. Pure T BS!! I don't know whose fault this is, but it's keeping piracy alive and kicking!! The album is awesome but I'm limited in my desire to purchase the whole thing. Somebody needs to Whoop That iTunes Trick!
