CD Reviews

Just watch the damn movie instead
T.A. | South Florida | 07/19/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"NO KANYE, NO CODY CHESSNUT, NO FUGEES, NO C.S.U. MARCHING BAND...these were the highlights of the film! Don't get me wrong--they put some good performances on this CD, but come on...would you buy PE's "It Takes a Nation of Millions" if it had no "Bring the Noise," "Prophets of Rage" or "Rebel Without a Pause?"

Just put the movie on in another room and listen to it...it's better than this chopped-up soundtrack. It doesn't capture ANY of the raw energy, The power or the impromptu jamming (except for "You Got me"). The sound quality is better on the movie, too. Great film, bad soundtrack."
Dave Chappelle Throws A Party
Thomas Magnum | NJ, USA | 03/14/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The soundtrack to Dave Chappelle's Block Party with hip hop acts that put on great live performances. The Roots are the stars of the album with some first rate songs including the amazing "You Got Me" that has both Erykah Badu (who sang on the original) and the flawless Jill Scott (who co-wrote the song) and "Boom" with a great teaming of hip hop pioneers Big Daddy Kane and Kool G Rap. Mos Def and Talib Kweli reunite as Blackstar and perform some solo songs. Not all the artist from the event are included on the album most notably Kanye West and The Fugees who reunited for the event."
For True Hip-Hop Fans

"This is a great CD to own if you are a true fan of Hip-Hop and not all that fake crap that is played on the radio. The only complaint I could possibly have about this album is that the fugees and a couple other songs from the movie were not on it. Even still it is a great compulation of artists and songs. One last thing I have to get off my chest, mistermaxxx if you really believe that Dave put these artists together because he couldn't afford to get "legit" acts, you are sadly mistaken. If you payed any attention to Dave's show and the people dave talks about when he mentions music, these are his favorite artists, and for good reason, these are the premeir artists on the hip-hop scene. Each and everyone of these people have something important to say and do it in a beautiful and intelligent manner. So if you enjoy good music I highly recommend this cd!"
