clipping.’s cover of J-Kwon’s ‘Tipsy’ out now

Oh hell yes! clipping. have released a blistering banger. Back in 2020, the West Coast experimental hip hop trio of Daveed Diggs, William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes had covered J-Kwon’s 2004 hit ‘Tipsy’, “one of the greatest party rap songs of all time,” as clipping. puts it. “We could never make a beat as hard as the original, so we took our version in another direction — something like if Skinny Puppy had somehow remixed it in the late 1980s.” Now their take has been officially released on a 7″ split single through Sub Pop Records. It also features Cooling Prongs’s cover of Ice-T’s ‘Midnight’ on the B side.

Listen to ‘Tipsy’ below, you’ll be playing it again the second it ends.
