Although never officially released as a single, “Till I Collapse” from Eminem’s album The Eminem Show (and featuring Nate Dogg) made its way around the world of sports, video games, and movies like 2011’s Real Steel, where it was featured in the movie’s trailers along with appearing on the soundtrack.
A huge hit when it was released alongside the movie in 1991 and eventually going Platinum, the soundtrack for New Jack City saw co-stars Ice-T and Christopher Williams providing tracks along with Keith Sweat, Troop/Levert, Queen Latifah, Color Me Badd and more.
Seemingly inspired by songs like the Maniac Cop Rap and Turtle Power, the wonderfully over-the-top Psycho Goreman featured its own rap soundtrack song, “PG for Short”, performed by the character Lil Cea$er, that played over the end credits.
Although far inferior in pretty much every way to Babe, 1994’s Gordy did have one thing over George Miller’s classic and that was a ridiculous hip-hop theme song from none other than Tag Team, “Pig Power in the House”, which got an official tie-in music video.
The title song for the 1992 action thriller Deep Cover, starring Laurence Fishburne and Jeff Goldblum, “Deep Cover” was the first solo single for Dr. Dre and the first-ever appearance of Snoop Dogg on a record.
90s hip-hop duo Tag Team turned their monster hit Whoomp! (There It Is) into an Addams Family version called Addams Family Whoomp for the soundtrack of 1993’s Addams Family Values.
When their first album hit Platinum status, Marky Mark and his Funky Bunch rushed back into the studio and produced the slightly harder-edged follow-up, You Gotta Believe, featuring the title song as the main single.
