"These 'big hole' 7 Inches from Lord Willin' are presented on white vinyl in mini Star Trak die-cut jackets -- replicas of the label's original 12" sleeves. The first hip-hop group signed to The Neptunes' newly formed Star Trak label in the early 2000s was a Virginia based duo known as The Clipse. The group's first single 'Grindin',' impacted young people with its bare-boned but infectious drum beat in the same way that Run-DMC's 'Sucker MCs' did almost two decades earlier. MCs Pusha T and Malice, combined with The Neptunes' groundbreaking production, sent a clear message to the rap world -- 'we are not the same.' Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo were able to combine their electro-punk production with just the right group to create a street masterpiece. Following in the footsteps of such rap criminologists as Kool G Rap, Nas, Jay-Z and Mobb Deep, the Clipse offer a hustler's viewpoint, with clever, hard-hitting lyrics that are consistent throughout the album."
