Let's Talk About It
These “Big Hole” 7”s 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.
