Nina Persson! Finally. And Bobby Conn Big Band? We’re psyched.

However, we’re most intrigued by Virginia hip-hop duo (and Pharrell friends) Clipse. Stream their second single ?Wamp Wamp (What It Do)? featuring Slim Thug here: REAL | WIN MEDIA.

Why Clipse? ‘Cause Malice and Pusha-T want to lynch everyone at their label! Yikes. Pusha tells Rolling Stone:

?I hate Jive. I hate them motherfuckers. With all my heart and all the passion and my soul I hate these bitches. It?s about the lynching of every staff member up in this motherfucker. … You could ask anyone in here to give you a marketing plan on Clipse and they could never do it. It?s like damn, ?What do you understand about hip-hop? You ain?t had nobody since Spice 1! You don?t know the fucking formula. Everybody in here?s like 50 years old! Just drop us. Leave us the fuck alone so we can go where there?s plenty of people like Clipse.?

The much-delayed Hell Hath No Fury album should finally hit stores in late November. Or never.
