clipping is about to go on tour with Busdriver and a few select dates with milo, and for fans of the crew AND Hellfyre Club like me, this was great news. Continuing their work with Hellfyre Club, they drop a double-single, with one of the tracks featuring members Open Mike Eagle and Nocando.
“something they don’t know” is an eerie, everywhere-in-your-speakers type of track and is six minutes filled of rapid, stellar verses, 24 different samples (if you know/can guess all 24, clipping will give you a one-edition t-shirt), a scratch solo, and a lot of noise (in a good way). Daveed Diggs has two verses on this track and he fits words in between beats I didn’t know was even possible, but he’s not the only one shining on this project. sb the moor and the Hellfyre Club-bers all are on-par with Diggs over their segments, but the talent doesn’t stop here. On the second track, “mouth,” Black Mushroom and Chinaka Hodge hop all over this grainy, quiet-yet-banging beat. I’m feeling a mix of wanting to mosh or just nodding my head rapidly in my office seat when this track plays out.
Check out the double-single below. It’s free!
