Later this month, Daveed Diggs's industrial rap project Clipping will return with their newest album, There Existed an Addiction to Blood. The trio has already shared two tracks from the LP, and today, they're back with one more, a booming cut called "Blood of The Fang." Inspired by a photo of Black Panther party co-founder Huey Newton cuffed to a gurney, the track pairs Diggs' rapid-fire homage to radical social justice activists of the late '60s and early '70s alongside a warped sample from the 1973 cult classic film Ganja & Hess.
The accompanying video, as the name of the song might suggest, is extremely bloody, but there's clear intention behind every drop. Check it out above. There Existed an Addiction to Blood is out October 18 via Sub Pop.
