Given its considerable overlap with 2007's Greatest Hits, casual fans of the Notorious B.I.G. won’t have much use for this soundtrack to director George Tillman Jr.'s biopic of the late Brooklyn rapper. (Which isn't to say that another excuse to enjoy ''Hypnotize'' isn't always welcome.) Hardcore Biggie devotees, though, will relish a handful of rarities, including demo versions of ''Microphone Murderer'' and ''Guaranteed Raw,'' as well as ''Brooklyn Go Hard,'' a funky new Kanye West-produced track by B.I.G.'s old sparring partner Jay-Z.
