Artist: Original Soundtrack
Album: Clockers [Original Soundtrack]
Release Date: 1995
Genre: Rap, R&B
Styles: Urban, Soundtracks
The soundtrack to Spike Lee’s adaptation of Richard Price’s drug-dealer/murder drama Clockers is alive with first-rank hip-hop and soul artists, accurately reflecting the urban sounds of 1995.
From the smooth soul of Seal, Des’ree, and Chaka Khan, through the hip-hop/jazz fusions of Buckshot LeFonque, to the intense Crooklyn Dodgers (Jeru The Damaja, Chubb Rock, O.C., and DJ Premier), the Clockers soundtrack offers a wide variety of style. Nothing on the soundtrack became a hit, but that doesn’t mean the album isn’t worthwhile. More than most soundtracks, it captures both the spirit of the movie while standing as its own, entirely listenable, entity.
