The durations of tracks 7 and 8 differ a lot from the durations mentioned on the back inlay, because "Come And Get Some" (track 8) actually starts at 4:40 in "Give It Up". This might be a misprint or something, but obviously somehow they messed up there.

Track 1 embodies portions of "Ten Crack Commandements" written by Christopher Wallace, Chris Martin & "The World is Filled" written by Christopher Wallace, Sean Combs, Todd Shaw, Mason Bertha, Deric Angelettie and Kit Walker, performed by The Notorious B.I.G.
Track 2 embodies portions of "Collage" written by E. Green
Track 4 embodies portions of "Raindance" written by Jeff Lorber, performed by Jeff Lorber.
