Clipping. "Air 'Em Out" (video)
Published Aug 24, 2016After bowing out of his role in the original Broadway cast of Hamilton, Daveed Diggs has set his focus back on his L.A.-based oddball hip-hop outfit Clipping.
The three-piece, consisting of Diggs and producers William Huston and Jonathan Snipes, are set to release a new full-length titled Splendor & Misery next month, and they've just teased the upcoming effort with a new video.
"Air 'Em Out" follows the clip for "Baby Don't Sleep," and finds Diggs at work in a futuristic dystopia — where gravity seems to have lost its hold. His phone, lamp and coffee mug unexpectedly lift off of the desk, leaving the rapper confused but determined to keep his feet on the ground.
