We gave it a B+

After a strong start with Coolio’s neo-gothic morality tale, ”Gangsta’s Paradise,” the beats just keep getting better. There’s Aaron Hall’s sensual up-tempo ballad ”Curiosity” and Craig Mack’s charmingly crusty cameo on Sista’s ”It’s Alright.” Considering that the film utterly lacks street cred, the soundtrack is surprisingly legit. B+
