Jermaine Dupri is poised to hit another home run with his second soundtrack.
Jermaine Dupri is poised to hit another home run with his second soundtrack. Based on journalist Daniel Coyle's experiences coaching a Little League Team from Chicago's Cabrini Green housing project, Hardball uses baseball to teach life lessons. To that end, the baseball theme resurfaces throughout this set. The Lil' Rascals (Lil Bow Wow, Lil' Wayne, Lil' Zane, and Sammie) get things moving on the title track, with each MC offering a lil' somethin' somethin'. Dupri knocks one out of the park with a remix of Jagged Edge's "Where the Party At." The track employs the same infectious vibe as its predecessor but features an all-star lineup, including Da Brat, R.O.C., Tigah, Lil Bow Wow, and Dupri himself.—RH
