Strictly speaking, the soundtrack to the gangster period piece Hoodlum isn't an official soundtrack. Most of the music on the album didn't appear in the film, not even over the credits, because the gangsta rap by Mobb Deep, the Wu-Tang Clan and Rakim didn't quite fit the Prohibition-era setting of the film. Even if the music on Hoodlum, the soundtrack, doesn't fit with Hoodlum, the movie -- it doesn't even sound like it was inspired by the film, contrary to the cover's claim -- the album remains an entertaining listen, even if there are a handful of weak songs scattered throughout the record.
