Since their 2002 debut, Lord Willin’, Virginia Beach hip hop duo The Clipse (Pusha T and Malice) have sort of been like a new, better version of EPMD. They’re both decent rappers (not great, though they’ve improved hugely), and they have full access to arguably the best hip hop producers since Eric B., The Neptunes. Following a bunch of surprisingly good mixtapes (the We Got it 4 Cheap series with their Re-Up Gang clique), their third album, Till the Casket Drops, is slated for an October release, and they’ve just released a new song from it that is absolutely awesome. “All Eyes on Me,” with Keri Hilson and Pharrell is basically the album’s third pre-release single, following the pretty good “I’m Good” (also featuring Pharrell) and the totally amazing “Kinda Like a Big Deal” featuring Kanye West (video after the jump). All in all, this is shaping up to be their best album to date, and possibly the best of the millennium. Just listen:
Don’t miss the “Kinda Like a Big Deal” video after the jump.
