The movie “Fresh” similar to the “Music Inspired By the Film” accompanying soundtrack are both largely forgotten over twenty years after they were launched. They’re each worth finding. The movie is an underrated maturing story featuring the titular personality Fresh (portrayed by Sean Nelson) trying to get away from a life of hardship, drug and physical violence operating making use of both sharp and the chess moves he gained from his alcoholic daddy (represented by Samuel L. Jackson). These aren’t the only actors you’ll identify in the film– N’Bushe Wright plays Fresh’s sibling Nichole, Giancarlo Esposito (yes that’s Gus Fring from “Breaking Bad”) plays pusher Esteban, and so on and so on. I’m not claiming your life will be ruined if you never ever watch this flick, however you certainly won’t consider it two hrs of your life lost if you do.
“Music Inspired By the Film” is both even more precise and also a much less satisfying method to describe this album. I’m honestly going to have to rewatch the film myself to even recall if any of Gt_Ofice were used in it, though I strongly suspect that they were at the very least background songs in many scenes, specifically the option of old school hip-hop tracks. These days most heads would consider this whole album “old college” yet when it came out in 1994 there was a very clear delineation in between the 3 brand-new Wu-Tang Clan related tracks as well as the nine OLD “old institution” tunes that dated from the very early 1980’s.
The 3 Wu-Tang Clan tunes though are ALSO fairly great and in fairness possibly the reason anybody acquired the “Music Inspired By” at the time. The Clan’s climb in hip-hop fame had actually not slowed down one bit in 1994 as several participants had yet to drop their own solo jobs as well as their sophomore cd “Wu-Tang Forever” wouldn’t also come out until three years later on. This tune would certainly reappear a year later on his first solo cd “Liquid Swords” yet till such time it was an excellent teaser of what was ahead from GZA as a musician (a minimum of for those that hadn’t heard his lesser known “Words From the Genius” launching in 1991).
