The Clipse recently told MTV News about a high-profile guest spot on their third LP, Till the Casket Drops — Kanye West. The brothers from Virginia looked to the Big Apple for their next collabo, getting [url id=”http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/cam_ron/artist.jhtml”]Cam’ron[/url] on the track “Back by Popular Demand.”
“I think Killa is about to really, really show off,” Pusha T said. “When you hear the Clipse and Killa, it’s gonna be an amazing thing. Definitely!
“It’s entitled ‘Back by Popular Demand,’ ” he continued. “I think the title explains a lot. Cam has been away from the scene. The want for the [url id=”http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/clipse/artist.jhtml”]Clipse[/url] is high. It’s just, like, ‘Back by Popular Demand’ is fitting.”
“It’s crazy, I can say that,” big brother Malice added, not wanting to divulge too much about the song.
Pharrell Williams produced the track and sings on the chorus. The Clipse and Williams are in Miami, deep in studio mode — as we talked to the brothers, Pharrell was inside making a new beat. Till the Casket Drops is tentatively due in early September but, before then, expect a ton of material in advance of the project.
“It’s about to be an onslaught of just viral footage, music … just everything leading up this album,” Pusha promised. “We’re really trying to get into the depths of the streets, get to the Net crazy — just put a whole campaign together for everything coming with this one.”
