The first Clipse albums got serious FADER rotation, but especially Hell Hath No Fury, based on the brick-like density of tracks like "Ride Around Shining" and (from the Barbershop 2 soundtrack!) "Pussy". Not that there were not lithe moments like "I'm Good" on either, but our expectations are ridiculously high and it felt initially too easy. But maybe it's time to open our hearts and let a little Clipse shine in. Because really, it looks sweet to drive around in a black BMW convertible and have a pool party on the roof of The Standard or wherever chilling in cardigans and expensive sunglasses with a bunch of models. Maybe this song is alright, actually.
