DJ Clue Net Worth
DJ Clue is an American rapper with an estimated net worth of $12 million. He is one of the directors of the No Question Entertainment Company. He was born in Queens, New York and he prefers producing rap music to performing.
One of the handful of DJs to make the jump from mixtapes to the major labels, DJ Clue? hooked up with Jay-Z’s Roc-a-Fella Records camp for a bit in the late ’90s, then moved on to his own camp, Desert Storm Records. The Queens native built his reputation with street-level mixtapes and quickly became one of the city’s leading DJs, graced with the latest tracks by the biggest names. Popular New York hip-hop station Hot 97 brought him aboard for a while in the late ’90s alongside fellow DJ heavyweight Funkmaster Flex. The air time furthered his reputation, and Jay-Z in turn invited him to join forces with Roc-a-Fella, which released Clue?’s major-label debut, The Professional (1997). The album featured primarily exclusive tracks, each boasting one of New York’s top rappers, everyone from Nas and Mobb Deep to DMX and Ja Rule. A second volume followed in 2000, and in the meantime Clue? toured with Roc-a-Fella in support of Jay-Z’s Hard Knock Life album as documented on Backstage (2000). He then parted ways with Roc-a-Fella and embarked on his own path, establishing Desert Storm Records and debuting Fabolous in 2001. Years later, once Jay-Z ascended to the position of president of Def Jam, Clue? recorded The Professional, Pt. 3 (2006).
