Background

The soundtrack became the first album to be released under the Bad Boy Records and Universal Records partnership. [ [http://movies.about.com/cs/badboys2/a/badboys2sound.htm "Bad Boys II" Soundtrack News] . About.com (July 14, 2003). Accessed December 29, 2007.] As the album's executive producer, P. Diddy stated:

P. Diddy shared his views on the album, saying "it's not just one of those soundtracks where it's just a compilation record and it's not cohesive... These are all new songs. I've done a lot of work [and] I've produced almost everybody that's on the soundtrack, or I've paired on a record with them before. I'm in constant contact with them. I think that everyone respected the fact that I wanted to do something that was special".

Reception

The album received generally positive reviews from music critics. Allmusic noted that it is rare for a hip hop movie soundtrack to "be explosive and feel as if it's a solid cohesive album, rather than a showcase for various artists to use throwaway tracks". [Theakston, Rob. [http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:hxfrxqtaldfe~T1 Bad Boys II Review] . All Music Guide. Accessed June 7, 2007.] "Rolling Stone" concurred, saying "this is how to do a hip-hop soundtrack". [Walters, Barry (July 24, 2003). [http://www.rollingstone.com/artists/beyonce/albums/album/296982/review/6212333/bad_boys_ii Bad Boys II Review] . "Rolling Stone". Accessed June 7, 2007.] "Blender" magazine observed that the record is "riddled with stars", "packed with production pyrotechnics", and called the album "pure Hollywood". [Weiner, Jonah (2003).
