Synopsis

Amazon.com
How Eminem was able to assemble so many credible emcees of today and yesteryear (Jay-Z, Rakim) to endorse his Holly'hood coming out party is anyone's guess. What is clear, however, is that (dare we say it) the Shady One might be growing up. On "Lose Yourself" Em abandons his callous, hardcore posturing to write thoughtful hood-centric coming-of-age lyrics that would make Melle Mel proud. On "Battle," Gang Starr's Guru tears through a sick beat from rap's most prolific producer, DJ Premier. Sadly, Nas wastes more valuable studio time dissing Jay-Z (ho hum) on "You Wanna Be Me." Interestingly, once you get past the living-legend love-in and peep the skills from Em's lesser-known Shady Records roster of underground wordsmiths, such as 50 Cent ("Wanksta") or Obie Trice ("Adrenaline Rush"), you might urge Em to consider giving up his thespian pursuits to become a full-time record executive. Not even the baffling inclusion of Macy Gray's humdrum "Time of Your Life" can sink this project. This limited-edition, enhanced version delivers via computer a movie trailer, behind-the-scenes footage from the film, videos, album snippets, freestyles, and artist messages. --Dalton Higgins

The Deluxe Limited Edition
Rachel | 11/21/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Other reviewers have given useful information and opinions on the soundtrack itself, but I had a little trouble figuring out exactly WHAT made this a Deluxe Limited Edition! The answer is that it comes with a bonus disc, The Shady Aftermath Sampler. The six raps/songs include:1. Obie Trice - Rap Name
2. Eminem - Stimulate
3. 50 Cent - Til I Collapse Freestyle
4. Joe Beast - Gangsta
5. Brooklyn - The Weekend
6. Shaunta - CaliforniaThe only really worthwhile bonus track is "Stimulate" by Eminem, which is great! 4, 5 and 6 are enjoyable, but 1 and 3 are downright annoying. I like Brooklyn's song, a fresh female vocalist.I bought the deluxe version thinking that there would be videos and interviews, possibly a DVD - but it turned out to be only a download of "The Eminem Desksite" which delivers videos and interviews from the internet, maybe twice a month - but it's FREE to download from www.eminem.com, and I already had it, so I was rather disappointed!As to the soundtrack itself, I just want to say that, in contrast to most reviewers, I LIKE "The Time of My Life". It took a while to get used to it, but since this isn't a RAP ALBUM, but is music connected to a film, I think the song fits as part of the story, when you listen to the lyrics. I also like "Wasting My Time" by Taryn Manning, who played Jimmy's ex-girlfriend Janine in the movie. She has a good voice, and her song also makes the soundtrack feel like it's telling a story. But of course the highlights are the 5 raps in which Eminem appears."

"The song is "Shook Ones Part 2" by Mobb Deep. To everyone else, the soundtrack is cool, the best songs are by Eminem. Cop it. Peace."
