5 reasons the Nas and DMX movie Belly is a hidden gem from the 90s

The soundtrack is fantastic

The Belly soundtrack is in full swing, and it was better with all of these rappers in the movie. What I remember most is D’Angelo’s “Devil’s Pie”, which debuted on this soundtrack but later reappeared on his own voodoo album. But track after track after track are great on this soundtrack. I really don’t think there is a bad song.

And the best part is that you actually think of the movie. The grainy soundscapes match the tone of the film perfectly. “Grand Finale,” performed by DMX, Nas, Method Man, and Ja Rule (remember him?) Really feels like it belongs in this story. I can’t say that for a lot of other soundtracks, especially the era that really felt more like a separate thing than connecting to the movie itself. Not all soundtracks could resemble those of Reservoir Dogs, which blend in seamlessly with the movie. And the same goes for belly.
