Virginia / Grindin' (7")Clipse
These “Big Hole” 7 Inches From Lord Willin’ Are Presented On White Vinyl In Mini Star Trak Die-Cut Jackets – Replicas Of The Label’s Original 12” Sleeves.
The first hip-hop group signed to The Neptunes' newly formed Star Trak label in the early 2000s was a Virginia based duo known as The Clipse. The group’s first single “Grindin’,” impacted young people with its bare-boned but infectious drum beat in the same way that Run-DMC’s “Sucker MCs” did almost two decades earlier. MCs Pusha T and Malice, combined with The Neptunes’ groundbreaking production, sent a clear message to the rap world – “we are not the same.” Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo were able to combine their electro-punk production with just the right group to create a street masterpiece. Following in the footsteps of such rap criminologists as Kool G Rap, Nas, Jay-Z and Mobb Deep, the Clipse offer a hustler's viewpoint, with clever, hard-hitting lyrics that are consistent throughout the album.
Select singles from Lord Willin’ will now be available from Get On Down on white vinyl in 7” size diecut jackets that reproduce the look of the original 12” releases on the Neptune’s Star Trak imprint.
