Their second album, clppng, opens with a solid minute of the kind of dissonant, legitimately painful high-pitched feedback that sadistic noise guitarists favor, along with some vigorous cypher-style spitting. It’s a clear provocation and a quick primer on the group’s aesthetic aim, which is to deconstruct rap music while staying within the genre's confines-and it’s also a summation of the group’s two major flaws, which are that the tracks go just a little too far in their eagerness to challenge their audience and the raps.

CLPPNG may be one of the most exciting and electrifying rap albums of the year, but their extension of the Bomb Squad aesthetic is also definitely not for the faint of heart.
Clipping’s sophomore LP CLPPNG sees them firing on all cylinders once more. The melodies forged in many of these tracks are catchy as and wouldn’t be out of place in the current club scene. The opening bars on "Intro," like so many others on the album, hit with such velocity and force that it's hard to get wrapped up in the lack of fresh perspective. Diggs adds an energy and playfulness to these tracks that make them a joy to listen to. It is rare that any group can take such unorthodox samples and make them, not only interesting, but also captivating.
