Clipse+Re-Up Gang


All this time and they’ve never rhymed “got more words for snow than an Eskimo.” Perfectionist brothers Malice and Pusha T hardly truck with pedestrian flows, as demonstrated by their critically acclaimed, locally respected mixtape series We Got It 4 Cheap; they also introduced Philly brethren Ab-Liva and Sandman to their fiending coterie of metaphor connoisseurs. Though Pusha’s willing to admit they “caught a brick” (ha?) according to Soundscan with Hell Hath No Fury, let’s hope that the future holds more super-literate malevolence and fewer collaborations with infantile trolls. Lean back. With Group Home.
