PRESSED ON FRUIT PUNCH COLORED VINYL WITH HAND NUMBERED OBI
LIMITED TO 2000 COPIES
The contemporary realm of hip hop music can be seen as polarized between two sides; mainstream versus underground,
industry versus independent, at a base level boiled down to catchy sounds & infective hooks over higher
quality lyrical content. These elements don't need to be mutually exclusive, but these days its rare to find an act that
can please all sides of the discussion. Clipse are one of the few groups that successfully and consistently caters to
both sides of raps splintered psyche, simultaneously serving the scene with upbeat bangers that get the club poppin’ &
subwoofers rattlin‘ while crafting clever quotable compositions deserving of repeated headphone submersions. Though
their preceding official albums Lord Willin (2002) & Hell Hath No Fury (2006) made bigger splashes commercially,
2009’s Til The Casket Drops is surely no slouch, a gem which deserves to be revisited with fresh ears.
Til The Casket Drops was a departure from the duo of Malice & Pusha T’s previous works in that it was their first LP
not completely produced by The Neptunes. However, the celebrated team who brought us “Grinding” & “Mr. Me Too”
still helmed 8 of the albums 13 tracks, thus dominating the soundscapes and aesthetic of the album anyway. With the
remaining beats handled by Hitmen Sean C & LV (Jay-Z, Big Pun, Ghostface) and Aftermaths DJ Khalil (Kendrick
Lamar, Aloe Blacc, Eminem) clearly Clipse stock hadn't lowered in the game. While boasting notable vocal features
from Kanye West, Pharrell, Camron, Keri Hilson, Yo Gotti & their Re-Up Gang affiliate Ab-Liva, Casket Drops leaves
ample space for the core emcee duo of Pusha & Malice to shine in the spotlight, with verses revolving around each
other succinctly in-synch and bonded by an exceptional creative rhythm only biological brothers could share.
