Overview

Rather than just release a soundtrack, the Hughes Brothers released a CD/DVD combo that complements their film American Pimp. American Pimp: Raw Outtakes and the Hard Truth is one of those great releases made possible by the CD/DVD combo, a new development that first caught fire about 2003 or so. It's a brilliant way to fight the downloaders -- giving you more for your money -- and in this case, it turns a funky, inspired soundtrack into something more. The DVD is fairly packed with unused footage, mostly interviews. They're interesting if you haven't seen the film, doubly so if you have. The soundtrack portion of the set mixes its high-quality selection of classic soul with pimp proclamations straight from the film. It plays like a classic blaxploitation soundtrack, but updated with the pimp's modern-day street slang. It's no surprise that the dialogue is filled with expletives and misogyny, but you haven't come this deep into the world of American Pimp without expecting that. Adding to the film's experience by busting out some serious funk and offering unseen footage, American Pimp: Raw Outtakes and the Hard Truth takes the good old soundtrack album format and really pimps it out.
