DJ Clue Flips The Switch, Leaves NY's Hot 97 for Power 105.1
"I'm really looking forward to being part of the Power 105 Team," said DJ Clue via a statement. "[Power 105.1 Program Director] Nate Bell knows that I try to be the voice of the streets. From wherever I am to wherever I go, people are always feeling what I'm feeling."
While Clue, a noted mixtape DJ and MTV on-air personality, launched his career over ten years ago with his signature mixtapes, he's maneuvered throughout the music industry in a variety of capacities. He joined New York radio station Hot 97 in the late '90s before dropping two major label releases via Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam. The Brooklyn, NY native later established his own label, Desert Storm, home to Fabolous.
"We're thrilled to have an A-List talent like DJ Clue join Power 105 and flip the switch," Bell added. "I'm excited because I know Clue's skills, creativity and work ethic will take evenings on Power to the next level."
Clue will be replacing Cherry Martinez. As SOHH previously reported, Martinez recently called out on-air rival Funkmaster Flex, who mans the same time slot at Hot 97. Now, Clue will go head-to-head against Flex. Martinez will now move to the 10pm - 2am timeslot.
In related news, Clue was named A&R Director for mobile content provider UrbanWorld Wireless late last year.
There is currently no official word as to when Clue will start his new stint at Power 105.1.
