Murder Was the Case (1994) – Best Hip-Hop Movie Soundtracks

Interscope Records

In all honesty, I’ve still never seen the short film that used this in part as its soundtrack. But as a follow-up to Snoop Doggy Dogg’s massively–popular ‘Doggystyle,’ it offers an amazing snapshot of Dr. Dre at the peak of his talents, rounding up his golden boy and the ensemble of characters who encircled him at the time. Although I always felt like the ‘Murder Was the Case’ remix was a little too melodramatic for its own good, ‘Natural Born Killaz‘ was an electrifying team up between Dre and Ice Cube that marked their public reconciliation, while The Dogg Pound’s ‘What Would You Do?’ offered a suitably creepy to complement the film’s morbid tone. But even if Jodeci’s ‘Come Up To My Room‘ remains the most famous gangsta-seduction anthem from the album, my personal favorite is Nate Dogg’s ‘One More Day,’ which perfectly captures the street-poetry honesty of the best g-funk, telling tragic stories that never succumb to phony posturing.
