With rappers like Jay-Z, Nelly, and P.

With rappers like Jay-Z, Nelly, and P. Diddy, among others, getting into the fashion industry, it was only a matter of time before fashionistas got into the music business. The brothers behind the hip-hop-inspired FUBU clothing line have done just that with their FB Entertainment. The first fruits of the Universal-distributed imprint is The Goodlife compilation. The 19-track compilation mixes established artists with newcomers from the FB Entertainment roster. Nas, Nate Dogg, and FB Entertainment's JS of the 54th Platoon team on the title track. The result is an impressive hybrid of West Coast groove and East Coast edge. Other highlights include a dancehall remix of India.Aire's feel-good "Video," which features Supercat.—RH
