check out pharrell’s summery soundtrack for dope
The track listing is packed with hip hop classics, features LolaWolf and lists four tracks by mystery band “Awreeoh”.
With Pharrell in charge, the soundtrack for the hotly anticipated hip hop high-school comedy / drama Dope, was always going to be super fun. Heavy on the old school hip hop, it features Rebel Without a Pause by Public Enemy, Scenario by A Tribe Called Quest and Hip Hop Hooray by Naughty by Nature.
Zoë Kravitz, who plays Nakia in the film, also features on the soundtrack with a track called Dirty Feeling by her band LolaWolf, and there are four tracks by mystery band Awreeoh. A bit of digging on Pharrell's social media feeds reveals that Awreeoh is the name of the fictional band in Dope.
Geeky trio Malcolm, Jib and Diggy - actors Shameik Moore (who found fame on the cartoon network), Tony Revolori (the bellboy from The Grand Budapest Hotel) and Kiersey Clemons (Transparent) - perform the happy-sounding tracks Can't Bring Me Down, Go Head, Don't Get Deleted and It's My Turn Now. The soundtrack does not appear to feature A$AP Rocky, who plays a drug dealer in the film.
Dope is out in cinemas on the 4th of September 2015.
