DJ Clue Bemoans Lack Of ‘Fire’ Material In Modern Hip-Hop

DJ Clue is worried about the current state of Hip-Hop, and he doesn’t see it getting much better any time soon.

Taking to Twitter/X on Thursday (February 1), the legendary DJ lamented about the lack of “fire material” in the game right now, though he does say there are some songs that are moving the needle.


“Ya’ll keep making excuses for these trash ass records and these trash bars…shit gonna get worse and worse…” he began. “‘Well this generation’..& ‘well these kids’…if it was a sport..& The games were TERRIBLE..The games would be terrible.

“Same shit..different toilet..pun intended [angel emoji]. There is some Fire material..but not a lot.”

This isn’t the first time DJ Clue has spoken out about the current state of Hip-Hop. Back in 2022, ClueManatti offered some advice to those making music in the modern era as he noted what was lacking.

“A lot of these records would be better if these rappers took a pen and pad and wrote their raps down,” Clue tweeted. “It needs to be well thought out and not just saying anything.”


He added: “Some of these songs be A,B,C, and awful.. TF.”

Several people in Clue’s comments agreed with his sentiments. “Word I’m so over it at this point,” one user wrote, adding: “The producer should be the star.” Another said: “Finally someone says it.” Some wanted Clue to bring up specific names.


There are many rappers who pride themselves on never writing lyrics down and creating hits off the top, the most famous being JAY-Z and Lil Wayne. But not every artist has the capacity to do this.

And while not everyone is qualified to make such statements, DJ Clue has certainly earned his stripes in the game – and reminded everyone of such last year.

“I’m your favorite A&R’s.. Favorite A&R [100 emoji][left pointing emoji],” Clue said on Twitter last April.

Clue then followed up with a response as to why he feels this way about his own personal talents.


“When You talk about “Clue” Mixtapes..don’t forget to mention all the artists who no one had ever heard of who got record deals off of being on my tapes,” Clue said “And not no rappers you never heard of. I’ll let ya’ll drop the names below [side laughing emoji].”

From the late 1990s to the early 2000s, DJ Clue was one of the hottest DJs in the music business due to his infectious mixtapes.


Over the last two decades, Clue has worked with a plethora of artists including JAY-Z, Fabolous, and Lil Wayne, to name a few. He also mentored an up-and-coming DJ Envy as a youngster.
