The Clipse recently spoke on working alongside Pharrell for their forthcoming 'Til The Casket Drops album and what fans could expect from its release.
Claiming the producer helped finalize the overall project, Clipse said the upcoming LP would give off the same vibes as their 2002 debut, Lord Willin'.
"He came through with the clean sweep at the end," Clipse told radio personality Jenny Boom Boom. "We were basically like, we want hip-hop on steroids. We in a good space, we want that energy, we want that [feeling like] the first Clipse album. It was raw, a little bit more uptempo. It was hip-hop on steroids. And Pharrell creates for us. He don't go and knock off dust from old beats, he literally stops what he's doing and creates fresh joints. Sometimes we fight, disagreeing over music. We go back to the drawing board but that's what we gotta do, we gotta push each other." (Jenny Boom Boom TV)
Pusha T recently said the album would drop later this year, missing out on its initial summer 2009 release.
"Third album by The Clipse is entitled Till The Casket Drops," Pusha T said in an interview earlier this month. "It's coming out late September, as far as production on it, a majority of it is by The Neptunes...Till The Casket Drops is just what we say down in Virginia. It's usually in relation to saying you saying you not gonna stop, the hustle ain't gonna stop." (Rap-Up)
Pusha also hinted at the various artists attached to the project.
"I mean production by the Neptunes, features from Keri Hilson, Kanye West, Cam'ron, Pharrell," Pusha said in an interview last month. "We just put together an amazing album and I'm really happy about that." Other names attached to the album include Timbaland, Scott Storch, P. Diddy and Danjahandz. (Much Music)
