For fans of great movies and great soundtracks, it doesn't come
any better than this: Magic Johnson Music and MCA Records are
on tap to release the soundtrack to the upcoming Fox Searchlight
film "Brown Sugar," which stars Taye Diggs (“The Best Man”)
and Sanaa Lathan ("Love & Basketball"). The soundtrack will
feature hip-hop/R&B songs by some of today's top stars. All
of the music from the soundtrack is featured in the film. (See
below for a full track listing.)
The music industry setting for the film, recently wrapped, has
made for some very interesting casting. Other cast members include
Queen Latifah, Mos Def, and cameos by Method Man, Doug E. Fresh,
Slick Rick, Dana Dane, Common, The Roots and other hip-hop artists.
The film was written by Michael Elliot ("Carmen: A Hip Hopera"
for MTV) and Rick Famuyiwa ("The Wood"). Rick Famuyiwa directed
the film and Peter Heller produced. Earvin "Magic" Johnson served
as executive producer. The film will be in theaters October
11, and the soundtrack will be in stores September 24.
"Brown Sugar" tells the story of Dre (Taye Diggs) and Sidney
(Sanaa Lathan). They attribute their friendship and the launch
of their careers to one single childhood moment…witnessing the
day they met hip-hop on a New York street corner. Now some 15
years later, she is a revered music critic and he is a successful,
though unfulfilled, music executive. As they lay down the tracks
toward their futures, hip-hop isn’t the only thing that keeps
them coming back to that moment on the corner…
