New Clipse Video: “Freedom,” Which Is A Great Song


In these three minutes and forty-seven seconds is a fascinating Clipse full-length that never got made–ditto for the video here, which has the same unsparing and self-ravaging feel as the song for which it was made. The more we listen to this song, the more Til the Casket Drops feels like the great rap self-hate record that got away, but whatever, that’s a 2009 complaint, right? Right? Anyway, this is great, minus the MLK stuff, which musicians of all kinds should know by now is never quite equivalent to your man getting put away for 32 years after he attempted to distribute 100 pounds of cocaine. It just isn’t. [Nah Right]
