It appears Def Jam is intent on making a fool out of me this year. First, I said there was no way that another Ghostface album was dropping this year, and then they go and play it for me. Then I scoffed at the idea of Clue’s long overdue follow up to The Professional 2 dropping anytime in 2006. Now, I get this in an email:
DJ Clue? exercises his craft as a producer on a hefty six tracks of Part 3, starting with “Middle Figure U” featuring Camron and Juelz Santana, then “It Was All Good A Week Ago” (Part 1 featuring Mario Winans and Part 2 featuring the Game and Mario), followed by “I Really Wanna Know You” featuring Jagged Edge and Fabolous; “The Gold” featuring Mobb Deep; “Liberty Bell” featuring Beanie Sigel and Cassidy; and the album’s closing track, “Da Animal” featuring Stylez P.
And the guest list doesn’t stop there – that’s just the beginning. There’s Snoop Dogg on “Almost Fucked” (produced by Lt Hutton); Young Jeezy and Juelz Santana on “Fuck Off” (produced by Develop); Lil Wayne, Ransom, and Rick Ross on “Da Scene” (produced by Doughboyz); Jadakiss on “Ugly” (produced by Swizz Beatz); Mike Jones and Paul Wall on “Grill & Woman” (produced by Chops); Fat Joe and Remy Ma on “U Don’t Wanna” (produced By Baby Paul); and M.O.P. on “NY Giant” (produced by the Heat Makerz).
I have to say, that’s a pretty hefty line up of heavyweights. If Clue pulls this off, he might have a nice little 4th quarter jumpoff on his hands. The Professional Pt. 3 is scheduled for a Dec. 19th release.
Here’s the single Like This ft. Fabolous and Kanye West.
