Tales From the Hood (1995)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Various Artists; Genre: Soundtracks

Can the movie be scarier than this? Among the 12 hardcore tracks on Tales From the Hood (soundtrack), MC Eiht gleefully describes ''popping niggas,'' while Spice 1 converses with his friend, Mr. Millimeter. An inkling of remorse is expressed by South Central Cartel's Havoc & Prodeje, who acknowledge that ''the 'hood got me feeling the pain; it seems that things will never change.'' Compelling art that captures life's grim side. B+
