Clipse – Freedom (video)

(shout to OnSmash with the premiere)

I love that I can follow up a post on design reform geared towards the triple bottom line with a hip-hop video/song that’s hard as f**k.  Such is, TAOD.

Anyway, I think Till The Casket Drops had a few sub-par moments (only for the Clipse’s high standards), but the highlights are 3 of the best tracks of the past year: “Kinda Like A Big Deal,” “Popular Demand,” and now “Freedom.”  Malice’s verse is nice, but Pusha slaughtered it.  He owns you all.

Be sure to check out our last interview with the Clipse as well, right here.

I checked out Freedom last weekend and you know it’s a sad day when I’m actually disappointed by an Akon album.  Like…I knew it wouldn’t be good, but wow.  It’s really that bad.  “I’m So Paid” is probably the best track, which is a bit scary.  There was one line on the album that stood out too:

“Flipping pages, now famous/
Thinking back, I ain’t seen you in ages/
Wishing I could make it less painless/
Brings me right back to the same as…”
–Akon, “Birthmark”

Wait a second.  “Less painless”?  So…more painful?

Grammar fail.
