Leprechaun In The Hood was one of the greatest films of all-time, but did the songs that it produced work well outside of the film? Yes and no.

The theme of the movie is the leprechaun himself going to the hood and terrorizing black people for being thieves (they stole his gold, not that all black people are "thievin' hoods" like the leprechaun says). The film was beautiful and hilarious and the songs in it made the film even better, but simply listening to the songs from the movie without the aid of buddies, snacks and the actual movie itself (and for some, drugs) the songs often fall flat.

For example, the majority of the songs are songs by fictional hip-hop artists, Postmaster P, who, in the film, is known for his positive outlook on life as opposed to the thug stylings of popular hiphoppers like 2Pac and Biggie and Eazy E (rest in peace all three, except maybe the first one) and these songs are quite gay. They are fun enough within the confines of the film, but simply putting this casette into the player and jamming is nearly impossible. The lyrics include such amazing wordplay (sarcasm!) like "yo yo yo" and "they ***ed my nest" and "yo dawg", which goes to show that these songs were probably written by white people to begin with (as in, not rappers).

But the highlight of the album is of course the lep's song, "Lep in the Hood", which is quite possibly the best hip-hop song of the 2000's, featuring amazing wordplay and hard jamming beats which are slick, crisp, and most of all, soulful, which is really all we want in a great hip-hop song. It also provides some much-needed light on the little evil leprechaun's origin ("Dublin's the place where I learned my thing").

So overall, this soundtrack is for die-hard Leprechaun fans only.

I feel like he should have visited the Hood and revisited the Hood before he went to Space.

Fucking love the Leprechaun movies! At least the first 3. The "Hood" ones are pretty funny too.

I've only seen In Space and Back 2 Tha Hood, but the latter is wonderful solely for having that girl who drinks milk out of a bowl in Pootie Tang.
