Lord Willin' (2xLP, Album). Star Trak Entertainment, Arista. The Virginian brotherly duo, the Clipse has came into the rap scene with their debut album, Lord Willin' in 2002. Enlisting the help of fellow Virginia native production team, The Neptunes, the Clipse has posed as a rap duo to be reckoned with, the first time that they have stepped into the world of Rap. With space-aged sound production from The Neptunes, the Clipse has great lyrical wordplay that tells their stories of struggling, crack dealin' and just simply grindin'
On his single "I'm Your Pusher," which tastefully sampled Curtis Mayfield's "Pusherman," Ice-T compared his whole album (Power, 1988) to drug weight, proposing that his music would be something rap fans would fiend for the same way a smoker fiends for nicotine. In the early part of the 21st century, after the Virginia-based production team the Neptunes' had splashed their electro-synth beats everywhere, from songs with hardcore rapper . to pop sensation Britney Spears, Pharrell Williams and partner Chad Hugo created their own label, Star Trak.
Lord Willin' is the debut studio album by hip hop duo Clipse following the shelving of their original debut studio album "Exclusive Audio Footage". The album was released on August 20, 2002 and sold 122,000 units in its 1st week of release. The album was certified Gold by the RIAA on October 1, 2002. Online music magazine Pitchfork placed Lord Willin' at number 155 on their list of top 200 albums of the 2000s. Slant Magazine placed the album on their list of best albums of the 2000s at number 98.
The Clipse are essentially a collaboration between rapper brothers Malice and Pusha T and the Neptunes. The first release on The Neptunes label, Lord Willin’ carried quite a few high expectations with it, and it was half fulfilled. Released during the a huge period of popularity for hip hop, it could have very well been the savior of popular modern hip hop; an intelligent gangsta rap album with incredibly original and experimental beats. Lyrically, the duo are above average. Their main weakness is they trap themselves in their own image; most of the album focuses on the same subject material of running drugs, the gangsta lifestyle, and how they cap bitches on a regular basis. They do keep it interesting; taking a storyteller stance on most of it may effect some of the impact, but makes it a fresh change from the general gangsta subject matter in rap.
Drug music was never this musical or this menacing. There’s something innately regional to it too. These are dope boy dirges constructed for the concrete blocks limning the boardwalk of Virginia Beach, universal in their appeal but full of mean-spirited couplets only fully understood by those singing lullabies to the fallen. This was always funeral music, the funkiest ever divined. Remastered from original source.
