Stream: Clipping ‘midcity’

Allot of comparisons can be made while listening to Clipping; Death Grips, Rat King, B L A C K I E, Cities Aviv, etc, etc, cool. They have a similar aesthetic sonically to a few other artists, but I assure you this is much different. Besides, any attempt to push the limits of contemporary hip-hop is a-okay in my book. Clipping is a Los Angeles hip hop trio with a fairly interesting approach to noise rap. Captain Ahab’s Jonathan Snipes and Rale’s William Hutson compose the intense soundscapes, while emcee Daveed Diggs handles the lyrics. An odd combo, but together they create something great. Stream Clipping’s first audible offering midcity below. I’m excited to see where these guys take things from here…
