Amazing slice of late 80s hip hop at it's absolute best. The title track by Ice-T is one of the early gangsta rap anthems and still one the very best, and all over this soundtrack are some of the best artists at the time like Big Daddy Kane, Eric B & Rakim, Kool G. Rap, MC Shan, etc. Includes the infamous Coldcut remix of "Paid in Full" that's an amazing slice of late 80s hip hop DJ work at it's finest. The only thing holding this album back is a goofy attempt at dub sung by none other than the star of the film Sean Penn, under the guise of the "Decadent Dub Team". Otherwise, a nearly perfect soundtrack for a great film that accurately represents the true "sounds of the street" at the time.
