Rhapsody Original (Exclusive, Single)
Released: Aug 2008
On record, the Virginia drug-rap duo Clipse pair jaw-dropping wordplay and head-nodding beats with dead-eyed deliveries. But live, as evidenced by this performance at the Rhapsody Rocks Austin party at South by Southwest '08, the Thornton brothers get caught up in the magic. Tracks like "Mama, I'm So Sorry" and "Ride Around Shining" are rendered with exuberance and joy. The key lyrics might very well be their invocation, "Gather 'round!" delivered at the beginning of "Mama." It's a family affair.
