    NEW YORK, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Records is preparing to
 release the soundtrack for director John Singleton's Columbia Pictures feature
 film, "Baby Boy", a coming-of-age drama starring Ving Rhames, Tyrese and Snoop
 Dogg on June 12th, the disc will be the first hip-hop/R&B soundtrack released
 by Universal Records.  "Baby Boy" is scheduled to open in theaters across the
 country on June 29th.  All of the songs from the "Baby Boy" soundtrack will
 appear in the film.  Singleton, who also serves as executive producer of the
 soundtrack, is working closely with the label in putting together the
 soundtrack.
     The "Baby Boy" soundtrack's lead track, "Just A Baby Boy" is a
 funk-infused, R&B/hip-hop track featuring rapper Snoop Dogg featuring R&B
 soulster Tyrese and newcomer Mr. Tan.  "Just A Baby Boy" was produced by
 Battle Cat (Brian McKnight, Faith Evans, Lucy Pearl).  The label has just
 completed shooting the video for the track, and will ship the record to
 urban/crossover radio stations early May.
     In addition to collaborating on the soundtrack's lead single, Tyrese and
 Snoop Dogg are also set to take on lead and supporting roles respectively in
 Baby Boy.  Ten years after the release of the seminal "Boyz N the Hood",
 acclaimed director John Singleton returns to the same inner-city L.A.
 neighborhood for the story of a misguided 20-year-old African American man
 (Tyrese), a 'baby boy' facing the commitments of real life.
