The fractured clamoring cuts from LA producer Baseck yield an anxious backdrop for clipping.’s Daveed Diggs, Open Mike Eagle, Christian A McLaurin (aka Signor Benedick the Moor) and Nocando to spit their lyrically-dense flows on. Most of these acts been involved in some of the most forward thinking hip hop this year; Open Mike Eagle released one of my favorite hip hop full-lengths of 2014; clipping. clinched the top spot of being the most abrasive experimental hip hop outfit in the game; Sinor Bennedick the Moor rapped over noisy patchworks of electro-metal-classical curved sounds on brilliant tracks like “Call of the Wild” and “I.
