Overview

The soundtrack to O -- a contemporary film version of William Shakespeare's Othello set on a high school basketball court and starring neo-Brat Packers Mekhi Phifer, Julia Stiles, and Josh Hartnett -- is chock-full of slick R&B and head-ringing hip-hop supplied by a talented crop of underground and new artists. The first track, "O (Hatin' on You & Me)," is given a sultry, neo-soul spin by the DJ Ran Project, complete with a loping bass line, hypnotic keyboards, and sweet vocals by Meko. West Coast rapper Kurupt offers the biggest hip-hop thrills -- alongside Noreaga on "Freak It Out," a party-wildin' anthem with skittering electro-drum taps, and with his fellow Dogg Pound alum Daz on the low-rider, G-funk "Who Ride wit Us." More rap flavor is provided by the East Coast quintet Spooks, who offer the up-tempo, call-and-response rap "Something Fresh," and female act Deep Six, who get naughty on the reggae-inflected "Bum Bum Bum." Even when fledgling R&B singer Tene's vocal embellishments on the gospel-tinged "You Brought Me Through" and Dyshon's tepid sentimentalism on "Long Gone" slow down the soundtrack's otherwise frenetic pace, O still resounds with a feel-good vibe that transcends the film's tragic ending.
