Mixtape DJs have sure come a long way over the years, and no one knows that better than DJ Clue? The NY-based spinner got his start peddling mixtapes on the streets. A few years later, his album The Professional, Pt. 2 hit the Billboard Top Ten album chart. Looking at the list of artists on Clue?'s play list, it's easy to see why the album has had such success. This time out, Clue? enlisted the likes of Jay-Z, DMX, Beanie Sigel, Redman, Nas, Foxy Brown, Trick Daddy, and Eminem among many others. What is likely to draw the attention of hip-hop fans are the exclusive tracks on the album, including "Change the Game (Remix)," which mixes artists from both coasts such as tha Dogg Pound, Jay-Z, Beanie Sigel, and Memphis Bleek. Another exclusive track is "What the Beat" with Method Man, Eminem, and Royce da 5'9". Also impressive are "Live From the Bridge" by Nas and "The Best of Queens" by Mobb Deep. While there aren't any dead spots on the album, The Professional, Pt. 2 suffers in comparison to some of Clue?'s other mixtapes because he plays it safe, relying too heavily on big-name rappers. One of the joys of a good mixtape is discovering new artists alongside more established ones, but Clue? offers too few opportunities to check out something new. Also annoying is Clue?'s habit of shouting over all of the tracks. While it's common for mixtape DJs to shout and give shoutouts over tracks, Clue? takes it to an extreme. There is a lot to like about The Professional, Pt. 2. He should let the music speak for itself.
My God who Wants To Hear Some Guy Screaming Over Good Tracks. Man, Dj Clue Should have Just Kept His Mouth Shut, Cuz This Would Been A Really Good Album..Heres a Glimpse Of What You Get, Dj Clue Saying "Whooo", "Ahhha", "hahaha" Over 23 Tracks...
Money well spent
This cd is AWESOME!!! I would definately reccommend downloading the whole thing or any single song off of this album. There are a lot of very talented rappers on the song and DJ Clue is awesome at his craft. All the songs have great beats that make me want to gring with the nearest person. And the lyrics are off the charts i.e. ...I've become accustomed to goin' thru customs, ounce in my pocket, hollerin' f@*%k dem.... seriously, it is well worth your money you spend n it.
Clue Put's out the best mixtape LP's hands down. Remember when Funk Flex was putting out those 60 Minutes of Funk LP's??? The Professional killed any of those because Clue was the 1st to actually put out full length tracks. The Professional Part 2, not a classic as it's predecessor, is still a hot LP
