Releasing on Universal Motown Records June 20th, the soundtrack for the new motion picture ‘The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift’ features many hip-hop personalities. The soundtrack to the third installment of the action packed street racing franchise releases just a few days after the national theatrical release of the turbo-charged film, this time set in Tokyo, Japan and starring Lucas Black, hip-hop star Bow Wow, Brian Tee, Nikki Griffin, and Jason Tobin, among others. 


The 12-song soundtrack, like the top-selling accompanying discs to the previous two movies, revs’ up with an diverse range of urban stars including “Six Days (the remix”), by hip-hop producer DJ Shadow and features hip-hop super rap artist Mos Def, “Conteo,” by Don Omar – the rising Reggaeton / hip-hop superstar who recently debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart and #7 on Billboard 200 – and “She Wants To Move,” by N.E.R.D.  The soundtrack also features underground ground-breaking up-and-comers Evil Nine’s “Restless,” and Japanese MC stalwarts Teriyaki Boyz, whose scalding title track, “Tokyo Drift (Fast & Furious),” is the first single from the album and was produced by The Neptunes.


Superstar producers on the album include hip-hop’s Pharrell Williams, DJ Shadow, Mayhem, and also composer Brian Tyler, who scored The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift (his previous soundtracks include Constantine and the miniseries Children Of Dune) and is featured with legendary guitarist Slash on the disc’s closer, “Mustang Nismo.”


The movie, a Universal Pictures release directed by Justin Lin, revolves around an American street racing rebel who flees to Tokyo to avoid doing prison time for his illegal racing lifestyle.  Once there, he discovers an underground car culture – ‘Drift Racing’ – that challenges drivers to accelerate through hairpin turns, and then spin out of them just as quickly. The movie features the newest customized cars blazing some of the most perilous courses in the world.
