Can I Hit It Original Soundtrack Recording (Bigg Starz Entertainment, 1998)

Another super rare find from Virginia, an obscure soundtrack CD to an independent movie about five white guys, with the help of their friends, who try to pull off the party of the year in the 'hood. The film was produced and filmed in Newport, VA with local actors and was supposed to debut in the Spring of 1998. According to the inlay, it was to be a straight-to-video only release. The production company Full Access Films started out in music video production with a show called "Full Access Videos" that was on the WB network on Saturday nights and they later decided to branch out into films. Similarly, this soundtrack features mainly unknown artists but there are two tracks from Massachusetts MC Krumbsnatcher (Krumb Snatcha.) A blend of smooth 90s R&B (Are You Ready, Baby We Can Do It), Garage House (N My Heart), Miami Bass Music (Can I Hit It), G-Funk (Wanna Know) and Thug Rap, an EP was also released on 12" vinyl which has a slightly different track-listing and appears to be highly sought after going by its $190 price tag on Discogs. Many thanks again to Napo for digging this one up and to Stuaaart for sending...
