The soundtrack to Samuel Jackson and Bernie Mac's comedy, SOUL MEN, is appropriately full of great R&B by both contemporary artists and classic soul singers. Not only do you get cutting-edge R&B by neo-soul men like Anthony Hamilton and John Legend, but there are also some tracks here by the old masters, including Eddie Floyd and Isaac Hayes, plus a couple of tracks where Mac and Jackson themselves get down with the soulful spirit.
