I have always been a fan of Clipse since their commercial debut “Lord Willin” back in 2002. Their second album “Hell Hath No Fury” is an exceptional album that I played continuously for months. It completely surpassed their first album in production and scope. The two brothers, Malice and Pusha T, always seemed to be rapping out of desperation like they needed to get their message out there no matter what. Their message and their never changing personas kept me drawn to their music.
Pusha T continues that hunger for respect with the minimalist “Number On The Boards”. This video has Pusha T going hard with his lyrical slaughter and menacing features. As a viewer I was impressed by the ferocious intensity of Pusha T’s presence in each frame of the video, almost like he wanted to grab hold of you to make sure you completely understand him. As subtle as the beat is Pusha T thrives over it with his threatening words and encroaching demeanor.
