The 'Heroes' theme starts with 'Wat's Up My Bro' signature tune on piano, followed by dramatic army drill sounds but the pace slows down and we have the mesmerizing 'Mannata' tune and lone female chorus. In short, it is a nice amalgamation of the different soundtracks of the album. "Wht's Up my bro"- Cruiser is superb mix by DJ Romeo and DJ Raoul and in keeping with the title the number truly cruises such is the pace and the effect of the added instruments.
