Most medical experts agree that a happy workforce is a productive one, and that generally holds true for urban musicians as well. The Clipse, however, are a notable exception to this rule—the duo’s anger and disgust with former distributor Jive Records served as inspiration for their Hell Hath No Fury LP, which was hailed by many as a classic. Having found greener pastures at Columbia, Malice and Pusha T are back to the more positive-minded style of their debut, Lord Willin’, but cheery cuts like Fast Life and I’m Good have thus far failed to pick up the acclaim of their darker-sounding jams. Also set for inclusion on their Till The Casket Drops LP, All Eyes On Me follows a similar formula; on the potential single, the duo team up with Pharrell to step out in style, all three shining so brightly fellow clubgoers can’t help but stop and look. Though Keri Hilson makes a brief cameo, the highlight here is the Neptunes’ uptempo, percussion-heavy beat. So, are you digging the Clipse’s new vibe, or should the Columbia execs start some shenanigans in anticipation of TtCD‘s arrival this fall?
