3. Clppng - Clipping
Cali experimental hip hop group, Clipping, pair rapping with industrial/noise beats. The album's extreme relying on violently dark lyricism and a palette of deliberately unpretty audial textures (white noise, drill sounds, the ringing of an alarm clock for a beat!). However, whilst being extreme, the group still manage to inject a fun catchiness into the record. Daveed Diggs is also an exceptional emcee - delivering hyperspeed flows and a knack for vivid storytelling.
