The Illest Late Night Band x The Clipse “Popular Demand”



The Clipse were the musical guest on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon yesterday. Above you can watch them perform their latest single “Popular Demand,” less Cam’ron, PLUS Black Thought (who murders it btw). Great to see The Clipse FINALLY back on the shelves. We had the change to talk with them earlier about how they have grown in the interim since their last release.

The Clipse’s latest album, Til The Casket Drops, is in stores now.
