It's nice to see Clipse back at it again.  I've been waiting for their new album Til the Casket Drops for what seems like 2 years at this point.  Their new track "All Eyes On Me" is a little more uptempo and commercial than some of their past few releases which should help them get back into the minds of the Hip Hop mainstream. Shit is HOT!!!

Clipse ft. Keri Hilson & Pharrell - All Eyes On Me

It seemed like everyone knew who Clipse was when they released "Grindin'" and "When The Last Time" from the Lord Willin' album in 2001.  They were all over the place with Pharell and the Neptunes and blew up even bigger when they appeared on Justin Timberlake's "Like I Love You" but somehow seemed to disappear from the mainstream for the last 5-6 years.  They've been around but they just weren't doing it like they used to and were keeping a low profile mostly due to record label issues.  

Their second album Hell Hath No Fury from 2006 was sick and is probably one of the more underrated Hip Hop albums of the past 5 years but most Hip Hop fans have probably never even heard it which is unfortunate.  It was a hit with Hip Hop Heads and music critics but the mainstream wasn't buying it. Their two singles "Mr. Me Too" and Wamp Wamp (What It Do)" were too hard for radio and club play so that definitely didn't help the cause.

I'm liking where they are going with "All Eyes on Me" and I am expecting some big things from Til the Casket Drops which is set to release in October 2009.  Check out "Kinda Like a Big Deal" featuring Kanye West and Bun B in the video below.  This dropped back in April and is another hot track that will hopefully make the album.  Kanye actually raps for once too!  DOPE SHIT!
