Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Lyricist: Aaron Hall .
Muze PNote Unknown Contributor Role: Static.
Muze PNote Featuring a wide range of R&B on the hip-hop tip (and vice-versa), the soundtrack of the inner-city classroom drama DANGEROUS MINDS revolves around the very themes the film attempts to dissect--the hardships urban youth face in their day-to-day lives in the ghetto, and the knowledge (street and classroom) they accumulate to ensure survival.
Muze PNote The best that DANGEROUS MINDS has to offer is served up on Coolio's opening "Gangsta's Paradise." With a chorus and melody pointedly lifted from Stevie Wonder's "Pasttime Paradise," the rapper uses his laid-back flow to paint a picture of an average young black male whose life opportunities fall short of the dreams that the culture sells him. Rather than unfurling this tale in hardcore, gun-toting gangsta fashion, Coolio takes the reserved, simmering approach--quiet and seemingly mild-mannered, but seething and, eventually, ruthless. This style is also adapted by ex-Geto Boy, Big Mike ("Havin Thangs") and, in a more uplifting manner, Rappin' 4-Tay ("A Message For Your Mind").
Muze PNote Elsewhere, DANGEROUS MINDS goes for a spin amidst the new jacks, bass-mavens sleek stylists that make up the modern R&B universe. Aaron Hall and solo Jodeci members construct hip-hop-tinged soul for the body, not the mind; 24-K offer street-feminism by setting a Seminole war-chant and Aretha Franklin's "Respect" over Miami beats; and former Revolution members Wendy & Lisa invoke Prince's spiritual leanings on their closing epic.
