Breakdown FM: The Clipse Return:Time to Re-up in ''06 by Davey D
We sat down with Virginia’s hip-hop prodigal sons, rap duo The Clipse and talked to them about their long hiatus from the hip-hop music scene. It had been a good 4 or 5 years since they last delivered an album.
The Clipse explained to Davey D that they got caught up in record label politics. Some of it involved the merger between Sony and BMG. The other involved a feud between Jive Records and Pharrel of the Neptunes. For those who don’t know the Clipse are signed with the Neptunes.
The group kept themselves in the hip-hop and rap mix by releasing mixtapes, but now they are ready to return and drop a new album later this summer called ‘Hell Has No Fury’.
Peep out this interview and hear what these two hip-hop brothers have to say about Hip Hop in VA, the rationale behind their ‘pusherman themes and why its important to keep it lyrical.
