Clipping is currently putting out some of the best hip hop you can find. Their first album Midcity (and is free) took the internet by storm and created an avant-garde piece of hip-hop that was still accessible due to Daveed Diggs’ flow and lyrical style. Get Up is from their new album released by Sub Pop.
William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes create intense atmosphere of noise and quiet for Diggs’ to wrap his lyrics around. This is their new video ‘Get Up’ all set Daveed Diggs rapping over the obnoxious noise of an alarm clock. You’d think it’d be terrible but both the sounds and sights keep you hypnotized.
