This latest installment in the popular ”NOW That’s What I Call Music!” series is an exercise in urban narrowcasting. As a road map to the dancescape, Off the Hook does a fine job, surveying the peaks (India.Arie’s ”Video,” N.E.R.D.’s political ”Lapdance”) and valleys (the corporate come-ons of B2K and Jagged Edge). Think of it as a mix tape by an undiscriminating fan.
