clipping. – “Splendor & Misery”

Now this is an album I did not expect to get at the station, but I was very excited to receive. clipping. is an experimental hip-hop trio who is fronted by the Tony Award winning actor (for his role in Hamilton) Daveed Diggs. Daveed’s work in musicals may have inspired his creativity, because Splendor & Misery is the group’s most conceptual album yet. This album tells the story of a space prisoner, who is rapping his way through the ship that he is held captive on. The way I describe it may sound a little cheesy, but I assure you if you listen to this album you will think it is absolutely fantastic.
