Clipse and Rick Rubin collaboration underway

Til the Casket Drops

According to EW, Rubin has already wrapped one track and planning for one or two more. Casket, meanwhile, is still slated for a to-be-determined Summer release. First single "Kinda Like a Big Deal" drops March 9, and it's already stirring Internet buzz for its one-two punch of producer DJ Khalil and featured artist Kanye West. If what we've seen so far is any indication, we're in for another round of word-twisting rap and minimalist Neptunes beats. And now the dude who produced "99 Problems" is on board. Awesome.
