Hell Hath No Fury


The Internet (or at least the part of the internet that Mark and I inhabit) is going nuts about the forthcoming Clipse album. Many tracks as well as a Green Lantern-hosted "this is not a mixtape" sampler/teaser have leaked, in additon to 2 of the hottest singles of the year (Mr. Me Too and Wamp Wamp (What it do). The album also got the coveted XXL ranking in this month's XXL magazine.

This track, however, is on some next level ish. Produced by The Neptunes, it has Timbaland-style fade-in synths, but with hot neptunes style drums including... more cowbell! The chorus has this haunting chopped-up singing which must be done by Pharrell but sounds nothing like him. Who knew rapping about dealing crack could be so beautiful?

Look Tim. I know you're into rap and everything and all that but I think what you have identified as a cowbell may in fact not be a cowbell.

I would guess it may be a wood block, you may remember them from band class, that is of course if you had any class!

I'm going to addendum here that I actually have no idea if it's a cowbell or not. I was merely wanting to be an asshole.

Am I the only one who thinks Tom of MySpace kind of looks like Mike Muirhead?

The only thing this cover is missing is a midget with their eye shot out.
