Yeah, DJ Clue! Whooooooo! Ha ha! and various crew shoutouts are all things you're going to have to put up with through this entire album. I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times, Clue straight ticks me off with the constant yelling, but I'll get over it. Let's get to the music.

Clue never lets down with bringing the hottest performers of today with some supremely hot beats -- Jay-Z, DMX, Jadakiss, Eminem, Method Man, Redman, Snoop, Kurupt and various other big names show up to help Clue and show love. Back To Life 2001 with Mary J. Blige and Jadakiss opens up the album on good note. Directly following that is a dope Jay-Z freestyle. Jay rips it like the freestyle he ripped on Reasonable Doub's  22 Twos. DMX drops his usual troubled thug lyrics on Who's Next, with Clue yelling every second bar.

My beef with this CD is that it's plagued with too many half-hot/half-not tracks with too many cats that should be straight ripping it. Getting It with Rah Digga and Busta, My N----- Dem with Trick Daddy and Trina, So Hot with Foxy Brown and Chinatown with Lil' Kim, Junior Mafia and Lil' Cease, are all prime examples of big letdowns. Cream 2001 with Raekwon and Ghostface is perhaps the best track on the CD. Ghost spits Wu-darts with his abstract style: It's like two acts/ Max in the trunk, lookin' real dumb/ '88 paper and our noses numb/ Paid over Marvin Gaye's gravy/ Said Ghost, pop murked me at an early age/ Hit Diana back in the days/ And the Supremes they were all on my dick/ Love the way I sung the Charelles/ Mercy, Mercy son/ Made 'em come. What The Beat with Eminem, Method Man and Royce The 5'9" has an amazing piano beat provided by Duro and twisted lyricism. It has all the components to be another Eminem hit.

With plenty of hotness, but way too many sleepers, Clue's album would have to scrape together a few cents to make it a 5.
