Rick Rubin Goes Behind The Boards For Clipse’ Columbia Debut

Virginia Beach duo Clipse are currently in the studio with iconic producer Rick Rubin, reports Entertainment Weekly.

Rubin, who signed the group to Columbia Records when he was named co-chairman in 2007, has already finished one track with Malice and Pusha T, and has plans on recording several more for their upcoming album, Til The Casket Drops.

The multi-Grammy-award winning producer has a famed history in the hip-hop industry. Along with Russell Simmons, he is responsible for co-founding Def Jam Recordings, where he crafted hits for Run-D.M.C., LL Cool J, and the Beastie Boys. While his last hit in the hip-hop world was Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” off of 2003’s The Black Album, Rubin has been behind some of the most critically acclaimed CDs in the metal, rock and country genres over the last decade.

Clipse’s third studio album, Til The Casket Drops, is reportedly set to drop in the summer. The disc’s first single “Kinda Like A Big Deal” featuring Kanye West and produced by DJ Khalil will be released on March 9. – Elan Mancini
