The Fast & The Furious movie franchise has flourished beyond most cult classic movies of our generation. The trials and tribulations of former undercover cop Brian O’ Connor, Dominic Toretto and his team of street racers have captivated audiences with their wild stunts in some of the dopest cars in existence. Between all of the action-packed drag races and their on-going relationship drama, we’ve followed actors Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Ludacris and the rest of the all-star cast as they traveled across the globe with their exhilarating escapades from Brazil to Japan. As a result, the franchise spawned a series of musically diverse soundtracks to accompany each film.
Since the first film was released in 2001, the squad of artists that have appeared on each soundtrack continue to represent the best acts in hip-hop, EDM, and international music. Artists like Scarface Ja Rule, Busta Rhymes, Ludacris, Don Omar, Trick Daddy, Jin, deadmau5 and Mos Def have contributed to the collection of successful compilation albums. With Fast & Furious 7 finally hitting theaters this year, it’s about time we heard the lead single for the new installment with Kid Ink, Tyga, Wale, YG and Rich Homie Quan called “Ride Out.”
Along with the new single, take a look back at some of the best songs to ever be featured on the soundtrack series.
