Kanye West – “Runaway” (Uncensored Studio MP3)

Hope you guys enjoyed the pizza party. We’re a little bummed Twin Shadow lost Best Swagger Coach, but at least we got to see Ke$ha in the trash bag she deserves. As a reward for sitting through the whole thing was this eye-catching performance from Twitter’s Kanye West, who we haven’t heard from in a… More »

Kanye West – “Good Friday”

Common, Pusha T, Kid Cudi, Big Sean, and Charlie Wilson guest on “Good Friday,” the laid-back, Freddie Scott (or Biz Markie?) sampling title track from @KanyeWest’s forward-thinking digital singles series. The rapper’s apparently been having a blast at NY’s Fashion Week kickoff (“This is the best night of my life,” he tweeted tonight, hours after… More »

Diesel:U:Music Feat. Clipse, Kanye, Lykke Li, Roots, Passion Pit @ Webster Hall, NYC 7/30/09

Last fall Diesel celebrated its 30th birthday in Brooklyn with a concert by N.E.R.D., Franz Ferdinand, T.I., and a very pregnant M.I.A. So expectations for last night’s Diesel:U:Music event and its promise of very special guests were high (like planes) (sorry). Jay-Z would probably show up and spit with the Roots? He is in town!

Geggy Tah Say Clipse Ripped Them Off

Reader David e-mails, “TMZ claims no one remembers Geggy Tah. I remember GT and so does David Byrne.” The ’90s alt-rockers say Clipse’s Pharrell-produced “All I Wanna Do (Feel Like Me)” copies their “Whoever You Are.” Compare. (Last TMZ link today, promise.)… More »

New Clipse (Feat. Kanye West) – “Kinda Like A Big Deal”

No coke rap at Coachella. “Unfortunately, Clipse had to cancel and there’s nothing Coachella can do about it,” a fest rep announced two minutes after the Norfolk duo were scheduled to play the Gobi tent last night. Consolation: a DJ Kahlil-produced Gayfish collab from Till the Casket Drops featuring artwork by Kaws. Hear it at… More »

New N.E.R.D. (Feat. Lindsay Lohan) Video – “Everybody Nose”

Yeah not “Feat.” Lindsay Lohan in a way that’ll do much for her artistic cred. You actually get the sense, from the quick shot scene and her visible irritation, that Chad and Pharrell actually caught her with cam in hand on her way back from powdering her nose at a club. Don’t ask us how… More »

Pitchfork Music Festival 2007: Clipse Are Trill

“I know you have a peaceful event here and all…” Pusha-T said a few tracks into the Clipse’s day-stealing set — and a few minutes later, it was a crowd of thousands hollering back “ka-ka-kat-kat” in joyous gunshot unison. Call ‘em Frosty (they want you to), and know the snow-blowing Thornton sibs are a must-see… More »

Bloc Party (What It Do)

Clipse had a great year with Hell Hath No Fury, and since its release the record’s enjoyed a second life as a mash-up fave. First it was our good friend and mashmaster team9 and his “Flaming Clipse” (using “Mr. Me Too”) on the MySplice project, and then it was ADD DJ Girl Talk adding “Wam… More »

Three Little Grizzly Bears

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard a good Clipse mash-up. Well, not since MySplice, anyway. Then, it was “Flaming Clipse,”; today, P4K’s got Girl Talk’s remix of Grizzly Bear’s “Knife,” which works the Thornton brothers’ rap into a dancefloor-ready, “Shout”-sampling twist on the Yellow House favorite. For more Grizzly mash-up action, hit Brooklyn Vegan for… More »

The Coke Side Of Life

A lot of you guys are writing us to complain that Clipse wasn’t higher on Pfork’s list (we didn’t write it!), but coke-rap is so on in ’07. Sasha Frere-Jones explores in his recent piece for The New Yorker:What is a life-style choice in pop is a livelihood in hip-hop. Almost every m.c. raps about… More »

Pitchfork’s Top Tracks Of The Year

With all of the lists coming at ya this time of year, it’s tempting to fuck selective attenuation and just ignore ‘em all — but today Pitchfork published their top tracks list and, naturally, we were down to take a look. The Knife, Hot Chip, and Clipse were the only artists to place two tune… More »
