I really enjoy hip-hop soundtracks. Especially the ones that don't have a lot of the wack RnB joints and are just mostly hardcore hip-hop. I feel similarly to this soundtrack as I do to "Training Day" although this one is stronger. There are only 2 wack joints and one hip-hop joint that isn't so great, but the rest of the album is fire. Obviously the Eminem songs are the best ones here (I like that he didn't just make one song and did about 5-6 including the ones with D12) but Jay-Z, Freeway, Nas, Xzibit, Rakim and Gang Starr also have some solid tracks. The production on here is very epic sounding, similar to "The Eminem Show" and it bangs. 50 Cent has some awesome tracks here too and he didn't even have his hit album out yet. This is when 50 was just pure hip-hop and he kills it. I love it when he sings too, he just has such a great voice. I don't really have anything negative to say about this album because the wack songs are very minimal and you just get a bunch of dope to excellent ones. "Lose Yourself" is obviously the hit here, and some people are tired of it because it is very popular throughout Eminem fans, but I still love it and think it's one of the best on here. The whole soundtrack isn't too long either. Only about 55 minutes if you cut out the wack songs. This should be checked out by any hip-hop fan because everyone loves Eminem. This is another gem in his discography (Yes I consider this an Eminem album). The movie is awesome too. Check it. Is there a 2nd disc to this album? Because my download didn't have it. Oh well, the first disc is solid.
