Asterisk: Two

  • The smash follow-up to QN5's initial offering in the mixtape arena, Asterisk:Two blew the doors off every hip-hop compilation in 2003. Asterisk:Two marked a new direction for the mixtape serioes, once again blended by DJ JS-1 . This time around, the label focused it's effort to provide a multitude of exclusive cuts as opposed to the general "mixtape" re-hashing on volume One. So, in essence, Asterisk:Two is actually a compilation and not a mixtape.

    With all original production and guest appearances by many QN5-affiliates, this edition flows effortlessly as a continuous mix for 80 minutes (including a special JS-1 hidden cut-track). Contained on Two, are the now standard 'show-closers', "Beastin!" by Mecca and Session's cautionary "Don't Do It To Yourself", which along with PackFM's "Forever Shine" & Tonedeff's "Heavyweight" serve as super-sneak previews of each artists forthcoming solo albums. Along with these new anthems, Two features some truly brilliant guest appearances.

    If there's one thing QN5 Music knows how to do - it's production. Just take a listen to Carolina-native Supastition's "It's Over Now", and see how ferociously correct Domingo laced the beat. Also, Cashmere The Pro's "Grown Man B.I." features some of silky jazz keys and a thorough drum track courtesy of Kno.
