The second volume of the Metropolitan Freestyle Extravaganza series, like the first and third, consists of two mixed tracks that clock in at under half an hour. That means that the songs aren't included in full, and you'll have to keep your finger pressed on the fast forward button in order to reach what you want to hear -- unless, of course, you're in the mood for sitting back and allowing the DJ to take control. Compilations like Freestyle Greatest Beats, The Best of Freestyle, and Masters of Freestyle are better for listeners who want a sampling of freestyle's best years; comparatively, most of the material here is of a lower standard. Karizma, April, Wax Crew, Nicole Daniels, Margie Martinee, and Laissez Faire contribute.
