More Than Just A DJ
Label: eOne Music
The mixtape explosion of the early '00s made DJ-helmed compilations seem irrelevant, but that hasn't stopped New York street sweeper DJ Kayslay from cranking out one a year, aiming at the industry's margins and offering slightly better production values than the average thug epic. More Than Just a DJ offers plenty of block stars, including Bun B and Twista ("Layed Out"), Raekwon, Ghostface and AZ ("See the Light"), Maino and Ray J (the album's lead single, "Thug Luv"), and Wu-Tang mentor Popa Wu, who reprises his Only Built 4 Cuban Linx ... Pt. II cameo on "Building with the God."
