The soundtrack for Biker Boyz features a diverse blend of both rock and hip-hop.
Of the 15 tracks found on this compilation, the spotlight falls on the collaborative efforts of Papa Roach and N.E.R.D. on “Don’t Look Back.”
The track proves that hip-hop and rock can be combined for an excellent crossover sound.
On the other hand, Metallica and Ja Rule’s joint efforts to combine genres on “We Did It Again” show how something full of potential can fall flat on its face.
The rest of the disc is a mix of hip-hop extremes.
Mos Def’s slow, but heavy “Kalifornia” grinds well against the faster and heavier “No Competition” by Mystic.
Jadakiss and Ron Isley inject a heavy load of soft and emotionally driven lyrics into the jumping track “Big Business,” while JR Ewng’s “Renegade” is a thumping anthem that fits well with the film’s plot.
The most surprising tracks are David Ryan Harris’ uplifting track “Don’t Look Down” and Me’Shell NdegeOcello’s methodically slow and soulful “Liliquoi Moon,” a relaxing track for a romantic night.
