Bamboozled [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Klinge
It's no surprise that Bamboozled, the soundtrack to Spike Lee's satire of racial stereotyping in the entertainment industry, has strong political undercurrents: Lee's comedies provoke as much thought as they do laughter. For the bitter and profane single "Blak Iz Blak," Mos Def who plays rapper Big Black in the film teams with Canibus, Charli Baltimore, and others as Mau Maus to demand "reparations and apologies" for racial injustices. It's the album's most incendiary track, followed closely by the remake of Public Enemy's "Burn Hollywood Burn" from Chuck D, the Roots, and Rage Against the Machine's Zack De La Rocha. Elsewhere, however, Bamboozled serves as a primer to ...

It's no surprise that Bamboozled, the soundtrack to Spike Lee's satire of racial stereotyping in the entertainment industry, has strong political undercurrents: Lee's comedies provoke as much thought as they do laughter. For the bitter and profane single "Blak Iz Blak," Mos Def who plays rapper Big Black in the film teams with Canibus, Charli Baltimore, and others as Mau Maus to demand "reparations and apologies" for racial injustices. It's the album's most incendiary track, followed closely by the remake of Public Enemy's "Burn Hollywood Burn" from Chuck D, the Roots, and Rage Against the Machine's Zack De La Rocha. Elsewhere, however, Bamboozled serves as a primer to neo-soul, with sultry and sexy tracks from Angie Stone "Slippery Shoes", India Arie "In My Head", Gerald Levert "Dream with No Love", and the wonderful Erykah Badu "Hollywood" and "The Light," which also features rapper Common. Leave it to the old masters, though, to combine provocative sentiments with evocative melodies. The chameleonic Prince indicts the music industry in the funky organ-based "2045 Radical Man," and Stevie Wonder offers history lessons in classic pop form on "Misrepresented People" and "Some Years Ago." Ultimately, Bamboozled is as seductive as it is rebellious.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Like the film itself, the original soundtrack to Bamboozled -- Spike Lee's film about an African-American writer who joins an urban sitcom written mostly by whites -- is a clever and carefully-concieved piece of work. Mos Def, Canibus, Charli Baltimore, MC Serch, DJ Scratch, Mums, and Gano Grills make up the Mau Maus, the film's angry, militant rap group; their single "Blak Iz Blak" sends up rap's political potency. On the other hand, Chuck D, the Roots, Rage Against the Machine, and Zack De La Rocha's "Burn Hollywood Burn" pays tribute to hip-hop's incendiary, message-driven power. Similarly, Erykah Badu's "Hollywood," Stevie Wonder's "Misrepresented People," and Prince's "2045 Radical Man" keep politics high in the soundtrack's mix. Bruce Hornsby's "Shadowlands," Goodie Mob's "Just a Song," Mums' "Ploylessness," and Common & Erykah Badu's "The Light" add further depth to Bamboozled, which manages to be playful and thought-provoking at the same time.
