Overview

If they put the Barbershop 2 soundtrack out with only the first three tracks and nothing else, it would still be an essential collection of urban beats and you'd still be a sucker if you didn't pick it up. The empowering "Not Today" is a home run for Mary J. Blige, Eve, and producer Dr. Dre while Mya's coy "Fallen" gets winningly roughed up in a remix. Sleepy Brown's loopy "I Can't Wait" tops them all with absolutely stellar lyrics ("You're a Tyner/Meaning the real McCoy") while OutKast's guest spot shows their Midas touch is still in effect. The Clipse's vacant cut screws up the flow, but the collection recovers with Keyshia Cole's smoky interpolation of Luther on "Never." Some killer tracks by Mya and Sean Paul, Floetry, Olivia, and Morgan Smith are dispersed throughout the disc's second half, and they're surrounded by cuts that are almost as worthy. The hilarious bits of dialogue that opened and closed the first movie's soundtrack are unfortunately gone, making the whole collection feel like a slick mixtape you'd have a hard time topping. It'll take you forever to stop playing the opening triple threat, but the rest of Barbershop 2 only needs a little trimming.

We most know Sleepy Brown singing the hooks on such jamz Like Ludacris's "Saterday" (ohh ohh), and Outkast's big boi's "I Like The Way You Move", it is his Hit "I Can't Wait That Wait" that brings the fire to the kitchen. An old school vibe with Sleepy's smooth voice and Outkasts original raps make the song simmer. Off of the Barbershob 2 soundtrack, "I Can't Wait" is my favorite track on the album which features tracks from stars like Mya, Sean Paul, and Eve to name a few. Sleepy Browns album is expected to drop in the early summer and all I can say is I CAN'T WAIT! Peace Rick

i love this album. i've been listening to it nonstop, which is pretty impressive for a soundtrack. my favorite track by far is Sleepy Brown's "i can't wait" featurng outkast. this cd is worth buying for that one alone - his new album comes out this summer, can't wait. pick this cd up, it's a tight one with lots of hot jamz.
