DJ Mister Cee “The Best Of Jay-Z”

Here it is, the final installment of the DJ Mister Cee “Best Of” mixtape series. Although Jigga-Man is not one of my favorite artists, I thought it was very important to present the entire library. My review wasn’t going so well, but I think turntablelab says it best in the following two blurbs:

“Mister Cee goes in hard (Aquaman style!) for this comprehensive and really fascinating career-spanning Jigga collection. Starting way back with the Big Jaz collabs and freestyles, Cee forgoes chronological worries and moves in for the kill, dropping track after track of classic Jigga, from “Hawaiin Sophie”(!) to “Hard Knock Life.” Even the most studious of Jay fans will find new shit on this one: rare early tracks, remixes and unreleased freestyles from Cee’s vault all surface here. You know this shit is made by an insider when there are tracks with titles like “Freestyle – Live at Big Daddy Kane’s Movie Release Party at The Ritz (1993).” Considering the age of some of these, this sound quality on this mix is pretty incredible. 36 tracks total. Recommended.”

“Part 2 of Go-In Brother #1’s Jigga retrospective focuses mainly on collaborations and the Roc-A-Fella era. Impossibly rare, hard-to-find and flat out unreleased tracks make their way into Mr. Cee’s crate – check young Shawn Carter’s “St. Ides Commercial,” or “Roc-A-Fella Shit,” which features the entire original Roc lineup (Jaz, Sauce, Bleek, Ranjahz, Diamonds, what!). Other highlights are “Young G’s” with Biggie and Puff, and the unreleased solo joint “People’s Court.” Mister Cee has done the rap world a nice service by unleashing this shit. 25 tracks total.”
