In this iPod era of omnipotent personal playlists and fandriven MP3 blogs, shamelessly commercial hodge-podge soundtracks like this hip-hop potpourri seem utterly inessential. Accompanying the new Samuel L. Jackson ”tough coach” high school basketball flick, the Coach Carter disc boasts a few slam dunks, like ”Wouldn’t You Like to Ride” with Kanye West and Common. But mostly it proffers airballs like Twista and Faith Evans’cornball pep talk ”Hope.”
