In Stores Now And Coming Soon: New Music From Trick Daddy, Scarface, Meshuggah, ‘XXX’ & More

'24 Hour Party People' soundtrack, Project Pat LP also hitting shelves.

While “XXX” may not be that type of movie, the two-CD soundtrack sure sounds sexy, featuring music by Nelly, Queens of the Stone Age, N.E.R.D. and Moby.

Also out Tuesday (August 6) is yet another project from Damon Albarn (Gorillaz, Blur). This time he’s teamed up with some of the finest musicians from the African nation of Mali to create a sound that they simply call Mali Music.

Plus, it’s finally time for embattled Project Pat to lay da tracks down. After at least four months of scheduling changes and pesky imprisonment hang-ups, Layin’ Da Smack Down finally gets released this week alongside Trick Daddy’s Thug Holiday and Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band’s King Biscuit Flower Hour Presents.

Also look out for Libertineby Gene, Scarface’s The Fix, MTV’s “Road Rules”soundtrack featuring songs by Jimmy Eat World, Unwritten Law and Hoobastank, and from the file of “When bad album titles happen to good artists,” Jean Grae’s Attack of the Attacking Things.
