AllMusic Review by

DJ Clay’s second mixtape for the Psychopathic label is chock-full of previously unreleased tracks and remixes from the likes of Insane Clown Posse and Boondox. That makes the set a necessary score for Juggaloos and Hatchet Men who take their freakdom seriously, but the few Psychopathic fans who don’t consider themselves “rabid” should be aware that Clay is a pro at making the label sound even more sinister, chopping and hacking the tunes together for an off-kilter onslaught that’s downright nightmarish. Quick interludes and gross skits link the DJ’s wild ride through suburban rap hell, and his own production work is suitably dirty, allowing these tracks to emerge from a grittier landscape than label boss and house producer Mike E. Clark usually creates. While it’s too chaotic to recommend to the newbie, Psychopathic regulars can see if they agree with Clay’s aggressive vision by checking highlights like Violent J’s solo anthem “Fuck the Radio” or the dancefloor remix of Twiztid’s “Crossroads Inn.”
