Gridlock'd is the official movie soundtrack to Vondie Curtis-Hall film Gridlock'd and was released on 28 January 1997 by Interscope Records

The track "Off The Hook" was originally recorded for the LBC Crew debut album Haven't You Heard? (We Givin' Something Bacc To The Street), which was later shelved and the songs were cycled through other Death Row releases. The album had two chart running singles. "Lady Heroin" was originally going to be on Sam Sneed's unreleased album Street Scholars.

"It's Over Now" was 46th on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks, which was Danny Boy's second chart single. "Wanted Dead or Alive" was 16th in the UK and was accompanied by a music video with Snoop alone as it was filmed after the death of 2Pac, so he is only present in archive footages from the motion picture. The album itself went to top the R&B album chart also on the first place.

Commercial Success[edit]

It sold 150,500 copies in its first week debuting at #1 at the Billboard 200, slipping onto the second place the next week and still holding "US Albums: Biggest drops from the Top 3" - Top 20 14th place with its 2 to 14 dropback at the third week. The album was certified Gold by the RIAA a couple months later, selling over 500,000 copies.[3]
