The song is actually called "Ooh Child" by the group "The Five Stairsteps". The movie is incredible as is the sound track sans this song.

The following is a list of songs played in the movie, and the scenes that they are used in. Keep in mind that some of the songs aren't on the soundtrack.

1. "O-o-h Child" by The Five Stairsteps is played on the radio when Furious and a young Tre are in the car, when Doughboy is arrested.

2. "Sun Shower" by Dr. Buzzards' Original Savannah Band is played when Doughboy is brushing his hair, and his mother is insulting him.

3. "More Bounce to the Ounce" by Zapp is the song being listened to by the bully before he takes little Ricky's football.

4. "Sucker M.C.'s" by Run DMC is the song being listened to by the bully after he takes Ricky's football and passes it around.

5. "A Bird in the Hand" by Ice Cube is played when the shooters first stick a shotgun out of the window at Tre as he crosses the street.

6. "Just Ask Me To" by Tevin Campbell featuring Chubb Rock is played while Tre admits to Ricky in the car that he's a virgin.

7. "Me and You" by Tony! Toni! Toné! is played when Ricky is the locker room after football practice.

8. "Growin' up in the Hood" by MC Eight is played when Furious is talking to Ricky and Tre in Compton.

9. "Just a Friendly Game of Baseball" by Main Source is played with Doughboy and his crew are parked on Crenshaw, and Regina King asks why he curses so much about women.

10. "Setembro" by Quincy Jones is played when Tre and Brandi make love after the cop pulls him over.

11. "Black on Black Crime" by Stanley Clarke is the song played when Doughboy's crew drive around looking for Ricky's killers.

12. "How to Survive in South Central" by Ice Cube is played when the credits to the movie start.

Hope this guide was helpful!

I don't even know where to begin. There is so much to say about this soundtrack. This album came out when I was 15 and I remember the impact of the movie and soundtrack like it was yesterday. In fact, a few wild people ended up shooting at cops after the movie because they were so amped up by the movie. But the soundtrack isn't as hard as the movie was. There are some smooth joints on here too. "Just Ask Me To" features Tevin Campbell and Chubb Rock who are, in my mind, VERY underrated. Hearing that song again made me shed a tear for the death of new jack swing (Al B. Sure produced that track...'nuff said). Monie Love's contribution (Work It Out)is more funky than smooth, but can you really expect a hard track from Monie Love? I think not. It still managed to become one of the bigger hits on the album (depending on your region/location). But the highest points on the album come from the hardcore tracks. Yo Yo (boy, I miss her) contributes "Mama Don't Take No Mess" and Ice Cube gives us a survival walkthrough on "How To Survive In South Central", but the best song on this album comes from Compton's Most Wanted. "Growin' Up In The Hood" is a classic. Period. There really isn't another word for it. Even Main Source hit a home run with "Just A Friendly Game Of Baseball" (Remix). The soundtrack gets smooth again toward the end with Tony Toni Tone's contribution. There were so many classic joints on that album and "Me And You" was one of them. Lukewarm tracks like "Every Single Weekend" from Kam and "It's Your Life" from Too $hort aren't bad songs, but they come off as skippable. And suspect joints like "Spirit (Does Anybody Care?)" from Force One Network, "Hangin' Out" from 2 Live Crew, and "Too Young" from Hi Five keep this album from achieving that masterpiece status.Read more ›

From Force One's Spirit to CMW's Growin' Up In The Hood, this album has a good blend of music for a soundtrack. Quincy Jones' Setembro and Stanley Clarke's Black on Black Crime are striking instrumentals setting off the two main moods of the movie. I wish that the soundtrack had a few more songs including Ooh Child and Ice Cube's A Bird In The Hand (the song that plays in the gang's car when they roll up on Tre'). Despite that, this album is a worthy pickup.

This was a great soundtrack when it first came out, and it is still today. This soundtrack is a testement to when West Coast rap took the world by storm. It is the perfect soundtrack to a movie of this fashion, and the movie also has a great score. The director ( John Singleton) is a master at urban drama and matching the mood of the movie with it's soundtrack. The answer to your question of the song on that part of the movie is a rap song by Ice Cube called "A bird in the hand", and it is on the album Death Certificate.

The Fivesteps 'Ooo child' is superb!, shame its not on here, whats the name of the electro track thats playing when groups as kids go on a trek through the hood to see the dead body, that 'electro monster' playing when the guys are playing basketball.......... all these tunes should have been on here,the album really misses some gems from the film, its the movement from 70's,80's 90's thats the great aspect of the film
