My 25 Favorite Artists of the 2000s - #16

# 16 - Clipse

You might say that every single Clipse song is exactly the same, and in a way you'd be correct. The subject matter of all of their songs revolve around one thing.....selling cocaine. However, the way they go about this subject lyrically is where their true greatness lies. For one thing, they've created more descriptions of the game than anyone in history, using a million different words to describe the same thing. Along with this, they don't necessarily glamorize the subject, despite the fact that they've made most of their money off of it. They realize that it's a cold, difficult life to lead....and not one they'd suggest for anyone else. Let us not forget another key component to their music, however, as they are basically the house band for the great production duo that is The Neptunes. Without their minimal electro beats, Clipse might just be a bit more ordinary.

My Favorite Albums:
1. Hell Hath No Fury (2006)
2. Lord Willin' (2002)
