Clipse’s Hell Hath No Fury: By the Numbers

When the Thornton Brothers, Malice and Pusha T, emerged in 2002 with their platinum-selling debut, Lord Willin’ —featuring singles “Grindin” and “When the Last Time”—and their popular We Got It 4 Cheap mixtape series, anticipation for the sophomore follow-up reached an all time high.

Unfortunately for the duo, it would take about four years stuck in label limbo (Jive Records) until the official follow-up saw the light of day. Enraged and furious, Clipse would channel their frustration into the vividly hard-hearted album, Hell Hath No Fury.

Placidly released on November 28th, 2006 the Neptunes-produced sophomore effort depicted as much emotion as the Miami Heat’s locker room. From tracks including the gritty “Momma I’m So Sorry” to the eerie “Keys Open Doors,” not to mention the fervid “Nightmares,” Hell Hath No Fury would emphatically become Clipse’s magnum opus, even garnering the coveted “XXL” classic rating.

On the fifth anniversary of its release, went back to the kitchen to break the cold-blooded Hell Hath No Fury down by the numbers. Ughck.  —Ralph Bristout @ralphieblackmon
