Colorado songwriter mixes obscenity and emotional heft with huge pop melodies
Various : Bones OST
'Houndtrack' to new Snoop Dogg film...
Much of the film's soundtrack draws directly from its storyline. As such, Snoopattempts to revive rap music's brief fling with the horrorcore trend of a few years back and comes up with surprisingly good results.
If you can get past the corny tales of decapitations and spilling guts, the sinister 'Legend Of Jimmy Bones', which teams Snoopwith RBX and NWA veteran MC Ren, is a definite stand-out. Meanwhile, Kurupt's flute-infested 'It's Jimmy' successfully reworks the KRS-ONE classic, while 'Fuck With Us' (featuring Kurupt, Xzibit and Tray Deee) is rumbling funk at its best. If there's anything remotely scary about it all, it's the ages of the people involved.
The movie will probably turn out to be pants, but then being scary was never one of Snoop's best qualities. He was always more of a party man, and he's still got the funkiest Halloween get-together on the block.
