I'm Bout It (Soundtrack, Explicit)
by Various Artists
Released: May 1997
Label: Capitol Records
Blame Master P's 1997 self-financed straight-to-video flick for the ghetto DVD trend that continues to this day. The soundtrack was a big hit, too. No matter how dreary or cartoonish No Limit's gangsta content could be, fans couldn't get enough of the label at the time. The best known track from I'm Bout It is Young Bleed's drawling "How Ya Do Dat." Other highlights include "Meal Ticket" and its dream lineup of 8Ball & MJG, UGK and P; Mystikal's aggro freestyle "What Cha Think"; the hardcore funk of E-A-Ski's "Faces of Death"; and Kane & Abel's thugged-out "For Realz."
