If the film is guilty of perpetuating stereotypes of a mysterious and sinister Chinatown, then the The Corruptor's soundtrack is guilty of perpetuating stereotypes of a superficial and single-minded hip-hop nation. While Jive Records uses the soundtrack opportunity to roll out their entire 1999 lineup (and then some), what you actually get isn't all that impressive. The collection of commercial rap is run of the mill, best summed up by Jay-Z's annoyingly anthemic "More Money, More Cash, More Hoes (remix)." Cuts worth keeping include Mobb Deep's menacing "Allustrious" and Murda Mil's ambitious (if not a little overbearing) "Have You Heard of Me." The rest is average--or worse--with KRS-One's posse jam "5 Boroughs" one of the low points. --Oliver Wang

Half The Songs Aren't On There!

"I dont know, but I went and saw this film and about half the songs that I thought "Wow, I wanna get this soundtrack" aren't even on there! Third Eye Blind's "Losing a Whole Year" is one that comes to mind, and the less desirable ones like Brittany Spears "Baby One More Time" and Monifa's "Touch It" aren't even on it. It's pretty bad when the soundtrack to the movie isn't a soundtrack, it's just one genre. Ah well, it coulda been good, but it wasn't."

The soundtrack has it's moments and downfalls

"As with a lot of soundtracks, the music has nothing to do with or doesn't even follow along the lines of the film. With this in mind, the sounds on this LP may confuse some. There are bangers on the soundtrack, such as KRS-One's "5 Boroughs", Jane Blaze, Mobb Deep's "Allustrious", Kasino and The LOX's "Men of Respect" and others. But there are artists on here that take away from the soundtrack like Spice 1's highly disappointing song and a biting, wanna be DMX sound-a-like named Truck Turner. This is am aiight hip hop soundtrack. A good purchase but don't let it's downfalls frustrate you."
