New Releases: ‘Hustle & Flow’ Soundtrack, Bow Wow, All-American Rejects, Diplomats & More

'Wedding Crashers' soundtrack, William Hung and Willie Nelson LPs also due Tuesday.

For new and emerging artists, scoring a spot on a film soundtrack can be the gateway to mainstream recognition. The “Garden State” compilation was singled out for including artists like the Shins, and now the “Hustle & Flow” and “Wedding Crashers” soundtracks will try to follow suit.

T.I., who’s releasing the soundtrack for “Hustle & Flow” through his Grand Hustle imprint, hopes the musical accompaniment to the film about a Memphis hustler struggling to make it as a rapper will accurately represent what it’s like to live in the South. Featured artists include
Mike Jones, Trina, Webbie, P$C and Trillville.

The soundtrack to the Vince Vaughn/ Owen Wilson flick “Wedding Crashers” showcases indie rock, featuring songs by Death Cab for Cutie, Robbers on High Street, Bloc Party and college favorites Guster. There’s also an exclusive track from the Flaming Lips and a rendition of “Hava Nagila”
by Vaughn, Wilson and the Klezmer Juice Band.
