It's one thing to make a comedy about reckless teenage debauchery, but if "Project X" doesn't sell the audience that this is some truly unbridled mayhem, none of it works. That's why every ingredient is crucial, and wisely, the folks behind the film have delivered a soundtrack that is undeniably made to raise the roof.
The disc opens promisingly with "Trouble On My Mind" by Pusha T, though according to the iTunes tracklist, it appears that this version is the one without Tyler The Creator (which is kind of ridiculous, but the beat and vibe still slay). Helping to keep things going is Kanye West's DJ A-Trak who drops his own "Ray Ban Vision" and also twiddles the knobs on Yeah Yeah Yeahs "Heads Will Roll." Bringing some old school flavor is Nas with "Nasty" while Snopp Dogg hangs with Dr. Dre for "The Next Episode." And no party is complete without Steve Aoki's omnipresent remix of Kid Cudi's "Pursuit Of Happiness."
The soundtrack hit iTunes today, and the movie gets wild in theaters on March 2nd. Full tracklist below. Update: Here's a list of all the songs in "Project X."
