DJ Clue: Show Me The Money (1997)
This one either came out right before Biggie died or right after. I can't remember but I'd guess that it was right before because they don't mention RIP or anything. All I remember for sure is I copped this tape asap because he had 2 Big joints before the album dropped. The tape is littered with old LOX joints too. This is Lox at thier best if you ask me. I know back in the day somebody compiled all the classic Lox mixtape songs/freestyles. If you have a copy of that hit me. This is also the Clue tape I mentioned in my Jay-Z post a few days ago. But I was wrong about it having a 3rd version of "Dead or Alive." It's just regular old part 2. It does have an incredible freestyle from Hov over The Benjamins tho.
ps: I got one of my all time favorite sayings off this tape. It's from the Mase freestyle. "How I'm gonna live with the full blown hiv?" That line is classic but I still can't believe the guy blew up.
I didn't split the tracks on here either. Nor did I add any effects after I encoded. My presets actually made this one sound worse & I don't feel like messing around with it.
