Clipping is nothing if not ambitious. The Los Angeles-based experimental rap trio has released three high concept albums that are simultaneously critically-acclaimed and divisive, unconventional and highly replayable, reaching towards the clouds while staying in touch with rap’s roots. The tracklist and first single off the forthcoming There Existed An Addiction to Blood LP promises they will continue to satisfy our need for thoughtful and artfully constructed experimental music in an age of apocalyptic chaos.
Clipping usually loves noise, but “Nothing is Safe” is a restrained, almost minimalist, arrangement of piano keys, electronic bass and Daveed Diggs’ heady bars that spin life, death, bullets, loss and anxiety in gangland into surrealist reality rap. If the accompanying lyric video, tracklist and album art is any hint, there’s a politically-charged horror movie coming to theatres this October. Strap in.
