Considering the name. Slam, this rap soundtrack doesn’t slam enough, despite tracks by B-boy big Willies like KRS-One and genre-bending contributions from such electronica mavens as DJ Spooky and Esthero. Only Big Punisher’s stealthy ”Sex Money &amp Drugs,” Q-Tip’s bouncy ”Hey,” and especially Puff disciple Black Rob’s naggingly infectious uptown anthem ”I Dare You” dunk on both poetics and pumping beats.
