SoulStice "That Thang", from the movie soundtrack for "The Blind Side"

Huge shout out to the homie SoulStice for having his track "That Thang" chosen for the movie soundtrack for "The Blind Side". Dope. Congratulations.
"After releasing North By Northwest (2005) and Dead Letter Perfect in 2007 (which have led to features on SoulStice in XXL Magazine, The Source, Urb, various other key urban publications and websites), SoulStice returned in 2009 with Beyond Borders, an “international concept album” featuring beats crafted by Belgian producer SBe and vocal collaborations with G.L.C., Kev Brown, Zap Mama, Oddisee and Supastition and included blog favorites “Chi Worldwide Remix” f/G.L.C. & Naledge (Kidz In The Hall) and the controversial “Strange Kind of Love.”

With the promotion of the upcoming Warner Brothers biopic “The Blind Side” in full-gear, SoulStice has been chosen for inclusion on the soundtrack with his new song “That Thang,” a track crafted by SoulStice and producer Mighty Wyte specifically for the movie.

For an indie artist to be selected to create a track for a major Hollywood studio picture is a weighty endorsement and one that forced SoulStice out of his creative comfort zone, giving him a chance to demonstrate his versatility as an artist. The opportunity and honor was not lost on SoulStice as he states "As an independent artist, placing a song in a Major Motion picture is a big deal. It's a co-sign from a major Hollywood studio - a sign that we're doing something right. This particular song is an artistic achievement for me because I'm portraying a character with a lifestyle that's not necessarily my own. That's nothing new for hip-hop, unfortunately, but it is new for me. I'm glad I was able to help give the movie what it needed.”
