This soundtrack is as powerful and as realistic as the movie. If you are a fan of true-to-life, tell it like it is hip-hop; then this is a definite must have for your collection. Being that I grew up in the type of environment depicted in the movie and on the album, I could really relate to this soundtrack. Something that is rare in the oh-so commercialized and cross over crazy hip-hop industry. This album focuses on and accurately depicts what really goes on in the inner cities; just as the movie. I highly recommend both the soundtrack and the video! I guarantee you, you will not be disappointed.

Does anyone know what the tune playing in A-Wax's car is when they drive into the underground car-park to find a car to steal?? I tried hard to make out some lyrics and search it on the web but I've had no luck so far.....any clues anybody???

More than likely, you've seen the movie "Menace II Society", and heard many of the songs from the movie. The soundtrack is a great representation of some of the artist's great work on a movie soundtrack. Most of them are related to the actual movie, so that is a plus, but at the same time many of the songs here sound like they were scrapped off their normal albums and ended up here.

The pros on this album are songs such as "Trigga Gots No Heart" by Spice 1, and MC Eiht's most popular track "Straight Up Menace". "Only The Strong Survive" is, what I believe, one of Too Short's best songs. Later on in the soundtrack, Pete Rock and CL with the help of the YG'z go hardcore (and more explicit than the normal rhyme style) on "Death Becomes You", which I believe is the soundtrack's best song. The R&B song "Unconditional Love" by Hi-Five is excellent, as the song talks about relationships. It reminds me of late 80's/early 90's R&B. Then KRS-One and DJ Premier team up for "P Is Still Free" which also appears on Return of the Boom Bap LP. U.G.K. comes in for the groove type sound "Pocket Full Of Stones".

The cons on this album are songs like "Stop Lookin' At Me" by the Cutthroats and Guru of Gang Starr (who outshines everyone on that song). That track is basically forgettable. And also I'm not feeling DJ Quik's "Can't F Wit A *****", although he JFN and KK of 2nd II None diss Everlast from House Of Pain. Other songs here that weren't mentioned weren't bad songs, but they weren't too great to stand out in my opinion.

Overall, "Menace II Society" is an excellent movie and an excellent soundtrack.

If you're reading this, you probably know what a great movie "Menace II Society" is. This soundtrack fits the movie so well, it's also great. You need not see the movie to appreciate it, I was digging the soundtrack long before I actually ever saw the movie. The soundtrack is a great profile of 1993 hip hop and R&B, and it contains music from artists of both coasts. There's a lot of star power here, with A-list names like DJ Quik, Boogie Down Productions, and MC Eiht, and as with any soundtrack, there are some you've never heard of. All the music is good though, it's got a variety of music, all of which I like, and I recommend the "Menace II Society" soundtrack to fans of music from the time period.

The first song is Spice 1's "N**ga Gots No Heart", a hard-hitting rap song from the Bay Area great. It has nice production with synths and a funky style, and his rhymes are tough as nails. The best song here by far is MC Eiht's "Streiht Up Menace", a song I consider a classic. Eiht tells the story of a boy born in the ghetto and his problems getting out, it's got a sad ending. It's a very emotional track and the strings-and-drums production are also beautiful. I haven't seen this track anywhere else, so the soundtrack is almost worth it just for that song. The Ant Banks song "Packin' A Gun" has nice, bass heavy production and his flow here is nice to listen to. Kenya Gruv's love song "Top of the World" is here, it's nicely produced but it's not one I listen to too much. The Too Short cut "Only the Strong Will Survive" is a great song from the rap legend, I think Too Short was in his prime when this song was made and it sounds great. Mz. Kilo's funny song "All Over a Ho" is another highlight.

Great soundtrack except for one song they left out. At the start of the movie as the camera passes over the projects Ice Cube's "ghetto bird" is playing, which is the best song they had in the movie. Other than that, great soundtrack.

This CD is raw. And the movie is awfully raw....
Considering the slant upon which rap and black culture has taken in these seven years since this album was released (and the movie for which it was made...) it doesn't surprise me that this record still hangs in my mind as the best of its genre. Almost every song on it remains a classic-- thoough some of the more positive R & B numbers that are there could stand to be stripped....
Taken for what it is, a frank and dark look at culture, this is as good as it gets. If you're newer to hiphop but wandering what exactly was going on in the early ninties, get this disc and listen to what Guru, Too $hort, Ant Banks and the rest of them were doing before rap became about Eminem's "homosexuals and Vicodin" or the rests champagne and big screen TVs....
This is sorta like the Louis-Ferdinand Celine version of rap music....
