We gave it a B+

The album to Eddie Murphy’s latest comeback vehicle should corner the hip-hop soundtrack market, as it covers every shade of the urban pop spectrum. With chart muscle ranging from a silky, Babyface-produced ballad to Warren G’s smooth grooves (featuring Slick Rick’s first postprison performance), The Nutty Professor might have a longer box office run than the movie that spawned it. B+
