Clipse: Hell Hath No Fury
Buy! - (Re-Up Gang)
This Virginia duo’s long-delayed follow-up to their highly influential 2002 debut album Lord Willin’ finally sees the light of day, and it’s a knockout hip hop classic. While their specialty remains coke-rap, this is far from devil-may-care gangsta hedonism. Brothers Pusher T and Malice throw down cold, methodical rhymes that detail the dread and paranoia that comes with dealing and working the streets, and they’re made more sinister and menacing by production duo the Neptunes, who bring some of their best work here with bleakly minimalist, futuristic soundscapes anchored by ruthlessly hard, cold beats. 11/29/2006 - Don Yates
