Boyz N The Hood Soundtrack LP

UMe

Boyz N The Hood is the critically acclaimed story of three friends growing up in a South Central Los Angeles neighborhood, and of street life where friendship, pain, danger and love combine to form reality. "The Hood" is a place where drive-by shootings and unemployment are rampant. But it is also a place where harmony coexists with adversity, especially for three young men growing up there: Doughboy (Ice Cube), an unambitious drug dealer; his brother Ricky (Morris Chestnut), a college-bound teenage father; and Ricky's best friend Tre (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), who aspires to a brighter future beyond "The Hood." In a world where a trip to the store can end in death, the friends have diverse reactions to their bleak surroundings. Tre's resolve is strengthened by a strong father (Larry Fishburne) who keeps him on the right track. But the lessons Tre learns are put to the ultimate test when tragedy strikes close to home, and violence seems like the only recourse. The Oscar-nominated 1991 film's gold-certified soundtrack peaked at No. 12 on the Billboard 200 and is comprised of '90s hip-hop (Ice Cube, 2 Live Crew) and R&B (Tevin Campbell, Tony! Toni! Toné!) plus a few score pieces from Quincy Jones and Stanley Clarke.
