Clipse & Slim Thug - "Wamp Wamp (What It Do?)"


Before recently testing the "solo waters," Virginia Beach's favourite rapping brothers Clipse released 3 acclaimed albums, about 5 official mixtapes, and 1 shelved Elektra album (1999).
Highlighted in this post, is "Wamp Wamp (What It Do?)" - The second single from Clipse's middle album. Hell Hath No Fury was produced by The Neptunes (Pharrell)... and this particular track featured guest verses from Houston's very own Slim Thug.
After the release and promotion of Til the Casket Drops (2009-10), the brothers decided to take some time off to work on individual projects. In 2011, Pusha T and Malice both unleashed their assorted solo efforts.


Pusha T signed to Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music, appeared on Mr. West's 2010 Album #5/"G.O.O.D. Fridays" series, and released a mixtape - Fear of God. It has since produced related videos for "Cook It Down," "My God," "Can I Live?," and most recently "Open Your Eyes"/"Blow." This coming June 21st, Pusha will re-release the collection as a commercial EP... dubbed "Fear of God 2: Let Us Play."
Malice's solo jaunt was a little less publicized... But just as maybe even more grandiose. Thorn10 Publishing released Gene Elliott Thornton, Jr. (Malice)'s debut memoir - "Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind & Naked" on Valentine's Day. In the lead-up time to the book's release, a series of 6 Vignettes were let loose to the blog community; They included musically-backed montages, book text excerpts, a skate video, fan Tweets compilation, rolling spliffs, and other various filmed activities... Clipse have [reportedly] reformed and re-entered the studio, and are beginning to prep rhyme schemes for Album #4.
