AllMusic Review by

Nearly all of MC Breed's albums for Power Records in the late '90s had something exploitative about them, and 2 for the Show is arguably the most gimmicky of them all. The concept here is that Breed collaborates with other MCs on each of the tracks, with such high-profile guests as 2 Pac, Eightball, Too $hort, Big Mike, and more. However, some of these songs, most notably the 2 Pac song, "Gotta Get Mine," are previously released and readily available. Like the other Breed albums released by Power, you're best off avoiding these exploitative efforts in favor of Breed's much better work for Wrap in the early to late '90s and his post-Power work that begins with his return to sincerity, The Fharmacist (2001).
