Its not a rare expection that a Rap & R&B soundtrack is better than the movie that spawned it hell its the norm. We are here to countdown those norms

  1. Various - Caught Up - Music From The Motion Picture

    This movie is just as painful to watch now as it was back then. The soundtrack is still amazing now.

  2. Various - Dangerous Ground - The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

    This movie was a complete dog but this soundtrack is a gangsta rap classic. Ice Cube's The World Is Mine & Mystikal's Mr S*** Talker still hold up.

  3. Various - Sunset Park (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

    27 For Sale from $0.99

    Average basketball movie, above average soundtrack nuff said.

  4. Various - New Jersey Drive Vol. 1 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

    8 For Sale from $8.00

    Tell the truth. You remember this awesome soundtrack more than you remember that awful movie. Let's be honest for once.

  5. Various - Whiteboys (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

    Bad satire is bad satire but the soundtrack bumps so there is that.

  6. Various - Booty Call (The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

    This movie is not funny and neither is the soundtrack but it is more entertaining this movie. SWV's Can We isnt the only standout track on this soundtrack you know.

  7. Various - Hav Plenty - Music From The Motion Picture

    This tepid movie has the most insufferable female lead in a movie ever but this soundtrack is a pleasant surprise.

  8. Various - Def Jam's How To Be A Player Soundtrack

    I learned more about how to be a player from this jammin soundtrack(via Max Julien interludes) than in this boring ass movie. How sad is that?

  9. Various - A Thin Line Between Love & Hate (Music From The Motion Picture)

    Martin Lawrence never directed another movie after this one(good for us) but we did get this solid soundtrack out of it so I cant complain too much.

  10. Various - Ride (Music From The Dimension Motion Picture)

    8 For Sale from $2.41

    This soundtrack was more fun than this dull as hell road trip movie.

  11. Various - Thicker Than Water

    1 For Sale from $22.11

    Bad hood movies usually have the best rap soundtracks. This one was no exception.

  12. Various - Gang Related - The Soundtrack

    23 For Sale from $5.56

    This movie was a mess script wise but it did spawn a gangsta rap classic soundtrack so it has that going for it.

  13. Various - High School High - The Soundtrack

    31 For Sale from $3.89

    This movie loses steam in the laughs department 1 hour in. This soundtrack doesnt suffer the same fate in terms of musical quality.

  14. Various - Murder Was The Case (The Soundtrack)

    Classic gangsta rap soundtrack for a laughable short movie. Death Row Records were kings of the great gangsta rap soundtracks.

  15. Various - I'm Bout It

    Im Bout It was a bad movie that no amount of money could save. This soundtrack had some of the best artists money could by and fared much better. See how that works out.

  16. Various - I Got The Hook-Up! (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

    4 For Sale from $9.99

    Bad hood comedies are the worst and this one was a complete slog to get through. We got this bangin soundtrack out of it so there's that.

  17. Various - Belly - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

    Belly is about as typical as a gangster movie can get even with Hype Williams's flashy visuals. This soundtrack still holds well after all these years even though the movie doesnt.

  18. Various - Why Do Fools Fall In Love - Music From & Inspired By The Motion Picture

    12 For Sale from $1.00

    Larenz Tate's campy performance is all ANYBODY remembers about this flat biopic. The soundtrack is more memorable than a movie with a hammy performance from a talented actor. For shame.

  19. Various - Nutty Professor II: The Klumps - Soundtrack

    The first movie was a sleeper hit. This movie was a dumpter fire. The soundtrack was better than the movie and the soundtrack for the first movie(which was great btw).

  20. Various - Space Jam (Music From And Inspired By The Motion Picture)

    155 For Sale from $0.21

    The ultimate example of a soundtrack way better than the movie that spawned it.

  21. Various - Deliver Us From Eva Original Soundtrack

    I like this movie but I like this soundtrack more plus giving lesser known but extremely talented singers like Vikter Duplaix shine is always a plus.

  22. Various - In Too Deep Soundtrack

    This movie was meh back then and its meh now. Meh is something the soundtrack never was.

  23. Various - The Players Club (Music From And Inspired By The Motion Picture)

    17 For Sale from $4.69

    This soundtrack is a classic. This movie not so much.

  24. Various - (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) House Party 2

    All the House Party sequels sucked. The least sucky of them had the best soundtrack.

  25. Various - Mo' Money (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

    It took me a while to realize this movie was weak. My stance on this hot soundtrack never wavered.
