Experimental hip-hop/noise hybrid clipping was formed by producers Jonathan Snipes and William Hutson in 2009, the project initially existing as a series of remixes where the duo put the vocals from preexisting a cappella versions of commercially successful hip-hop tracks over their new beats made with noise and industrial elements. The harsh sounds of the project expanded the next year when rapper and long-term friend Daveed Diggs joined up. The group's debut album, Midcity, was released online in February of 2013. The sound was so innovative that within months, the duo had inked a deal with Sub Pop Records, which delivered second album CLPPNG the next year. The album featured guest spots from ex-Three 6 Mafia MC Gangsta Boo, King T, Guce, and others. ~ Fred Thomas
