The soundtrack consists of eleven original songs, most of which were performed by chart-topping R&B and hip-hop artists of the time. The music is heavily influenced by the new jack swing genre of R&B.

Sure! produced the track "Get It Together," performed by F.S. Effect.
The soundtrack reached No. 1 on the US Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart eight weeks, and No. 2 on the Billboard 200. The single "I'm Dreaming" performed by Christopher Williams, and "For the Love of Money/Living for the City" performed by Troop, LeVert, and Queen Latifah, reached No. 1 and No. 12 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, respectively.
The Troop/LeVert/Queen Latifah song was a medley of The O'Jays' "For the Love of Money" and Stevie Wonder's "Living for the City" (The O'Jays' lead singer is Eddie Levert, the father of two members of the group LeVert).
