About Clipse:

Born in the Bronx, later migrating to Virginia Beach, VA -- brothers Pusha T and Malice -- are Clipse. And they were one of the very first artists to associate with the Neptunes, a move that was very smart.

The Neptunes' Pharrell Williams first met the duo in the early 90s and was immediately impressed by their talents. He decided to help them get a gig. Hooking them up with Elektra, their first single was a disappointing flop. The group seemed done before they really got started, even though they had an ENTIRE album's worth of material recorded.

Pharrell Williams, however, was not discouraged and continued to hype the group until a new label - Arista - intervened in 2001!

With the new label in the bag, Pharrell and partner Chad Hugo produced Lord Willin', Clipse's 2002 full-length "debut", and released it under their newly developed Star Trak name. With "Grindin'," the album hit Top 10 on the R&B/Hip-Hop and Billboard 200 charts and eventually went GOLD!

The merger between Sony & BMG threw their follow-up album's future into limbo and so began a long list of legal issues between Clipse and their new parent label, Jive. Clipse began releasing under-the-table mixtapes and set up their own "Re-Up" label. Hell Hath No Fury was released on November 28, 2006.

While this album received substantial critical acclaim, sales were surprisingly modest at only 78,000 in the first week and very little radio play has been provided for both singles "Mr. Me Too" with Pharrell and "Wamp Wamp (What It Do)" with Slim Thug.
