Published Oct 20, 2009While it was starting to seem like they'd actually be in their caskets before it came out, Virginia coke-rap duo Clipse have finally announced the details for their Till the Casket Drops LP. The long-awaited album follows up their critically acclaimed 2006 effort, Hell Hath No Fury, and has been in the works for a long time. Fortunately, it looks like the record will actually be out before the end of the year.
The album has been given a December 8 release date via Columbia Records. And while release dates seem infinitely flexible with hip-hop albums, the possibility of it actually coming out then seems more secure with the fact that the band have shared the record's tracklisting.
In its 13 tracks, Casket boasts more of the definitive Neptunes production that made Hell Hath No Fury so great, along with a slew of guests, including Cam'ron, Kanye West, Pharrell, Keri Hilson and more.
Damn, now we're going to have to wait on this before we can decide our favourite hip-hop album of 2009.
