THE BLOCK IS HOT
By now, the plot that would support a Clipse-themed Behind the Music is so well known that actually filming such an episode would be mostly redundant. Act I: Brothers form rap group, release hot singles then hot album produced by childhood friends the Neptunes. Act II: Brothers get shelved by label Jive, release astoundingly good mixtapes, but still can’t get a release date for their astoundingly good album. Act III: Brothers finally release album, which despite disappointing sales figures, cements their place as one of the decade’s premier rap groups. Tonight, catch the duo’s cleverer half, Pusha T, as he advances his solo story at the Gramercy Theatre.
