Can't Wait For Another One

I got Lord Willin for my birthday when it came out a few years ago and to tell you the truth I expected a mediocre album at best. I figured that the singles were a little too hot for the rest of the album to be as good and I was wrong. First if anything the only negative thing is that it's only 15 tracks and the remixes end the album, because it seems like Clipse had more tracks to put on here. They seem like the type that could fill out an album with at least 19 tracks and still keep it decent to get 4 or 5 stars which is what there new album will probably do. What I like most about Clipse is there lyrical style and that it is a little different from other recent duos and they take time to work on their album instead of just throwing out ok albums every year. They say that they didn't really want to do rap at first but you can feel that they actually put heart into their craft. They have the ability to take production like Pharells and still make it sound grimy but make hits at the same time. The production was hot also, lots of Pharell beats and a few guest appearances but Clipse doesn't let them over cloud them and I hope that they can go above and beyond themselves on this upcoming release.

The beats on this CD are phenomenal. Although the lyrics fall short of the beats, they are still good, much better than half of the rap CDs that are already out their. Pusha T and Malice brag about their riches and tell stories about their violent, drug-dealing past in Virginia and they do so tastefully and cleverly.     This is not one of those CDs were the only good song is the hit song, as is usually the case with most other artists in this fake, commercialized era of hip-hop. …

About this topic

Wiki

As the first group to be released on the Neptunes' Star Trak imprint, Virginia-based rhyme duo and brothers Malice and Pusha T have at their disposal the most clever producers in music today. And they literally exhaust this fine privilege. There are so many legitimate danceable club hits on their debut that you're pretty much forced to ignore the CD's lyrical shortcomings. The album blasts off with "Grindin'," the street-buzz single of the 2002 summer, with its heavy, old-schoolRun DMC-style drum claps. Similarly, "I'm Not You" flaunts an infectious calypso-pan loop, which makes you pay no heed to the dozens of street-drug verses. The hedonism continues on "Let's Talk About It," with the braggadocio ofJermaine Dupri, and the catchy, hook-driven "Young Boy." Overall, the beats are ridiculously good, but the emcees are quite average. Sorry, no instrumental version available at this time.--Dalton Higgins
