AllMusic Review by

In an attempt to replicate the surrealistic violence of the film, the soundtrack to the exploitation horror film Tales from the Hood is filled with hardcore gangsta rap. Predictably, most of the songs on the disc are filled with explicit violence and ridiculous boasts, which wouldn't be so bad if they were all executed with the imagination of The Wu-Tang Clan's "Let Me at Them," or Wu-Tang member Ol' Dirty Bastard's "Ol' Dirty's Back," two tracks driven by spare, razor-sharp beats and lyrics. Most of the rest of Tales from the Hood is filled with generic gangsta fare, which means the album will only appeal to the genre's most devoted fans.
