DJ Clue's album, The Professional is one of the best I've bought in a long time. His album features the ever popular Ruff Ryder Anthem Remix with DMX, Jadakiss, Styles, Drag-On, & Eve. Other artists featured in this album are Jay-Z, Ja Rule, Big Pun, Cam'Ron, Noreaga, Canibus, Memphis Bleek, Redman, Mase, Jermaine Dupri, Mobb Deep, and many more big name rappers. DJ Clue is one of the best DJ's that music has ever seen. This album is a must for anyone who likes rap music. Good songs include the Ruff Ryder Anthem Remix, Fantastic 4, Gangsta S***, The Professional, No Love, and more. Every song on this album is good in its own way. If you like big name rappers all in one CD, this is definitely one to buy!

The biggest selling female trio of all time returns with their newest album Fanmail. This album includes the smash hits "I'm Good at Being Bad," "Silly Ho," "No Scrubs," and "Unpretty." This album has a parental advisory for explicit content, which is mostly found in the song "I'm Good at Being Bad." Otherwise this CD is fairly clean of language. This album is better than their last, Crazy-Sexy-Cool, which was put out five years ago. If you like R&B accompanied with some rap vocals this is a great buy for you.

This album is by the best rapper ever to live on the face of the earth in my mind. Since a child Tupac Shakur had a difficult life, which was told in some of his greatest songs. My personal favorites include California Love, I Ain't Mad at Cha, Toss it Up, Live and Die in L.A., and many more. Changes, a recent hit, was just released on 2Pac's Greatest Hits album. This album has a parental advisory for explicit content, which is very evident in many of his songs. Although and edited version is available to buy, the explicit version is better to fully understand the meanings of 2Pac's music. For any person who likes rap music, this is a must have for your collection.

Jay-Z's album Hard Knock Life..Volume 2 is another good example of a great compilation of songs. Many of the songs on this album are hits. Some of those include Hard Knock Life (containing a sample from the musical "Annie"), Can I Getta..., Money, Cash, Hoes, Money Ain't a Thang, and It's Alright. Jay-Z teams up with Jermaine Dupri on the track Money Ain't a Thang and it became a smash hit. There are many great people featured in this album including DMX, Memphis Bleek, Kid Capri, Too $hort, Jermaine Dupri, and Ja Rule. This album has a parental advisory, but the language is not necessary for the understanding of these songs. This CD is also a must for any rap lovers.

This album by Public Enemy was the soundtrack to the Spike Lee movie He Got Game. The songs on this album have some old school roots and new roots as well. The better songs on this album include Resurrection, He Got Game, Shake Your Booty, and What You Need is Jesus. If you have seen the movie, many of the songs will have more meaning to you because they are related to events throughout the course of the film. There are slow spots in this CD, but if you buy an album for a few good songs or you are a Public Enemy fan this is a good buy. After a while the songs will become old and you may not be interested as much, but this is still a good album.
RATING: * * 1/2
