Def Jam 25, Vol. 8: Girls Just Wanna, like the other digital download compilations released to commemorate Def Jam's 25th anniversary, consists of ten tracks. Not all of the selections feature women, though the label could've easily assembled a set that did so. The selections that don't feature women are, evidently, directed at them in a sexual fasion (like, say, Joe Budden's "Pump It Up," where the rapper offers the less than gentlemanly "Can't spit it out, boo, you gotta slurp that"). This contains a mix of hits and deeper cuts, including Young Gunz' "Set It Off," 112's "U Already Know," Foxy Brown's "Hot Spot," and Shawnna's "Gettin' Some."
