Throwback Thursday: Grindin’ by Clipse. Being first discovered by Pharrell Williams and The Neptunes the duo, Clipse, released their first album in 2002 with the help of one of the biggest hip hop singles of the year Grindin’. Being one of The Neptunes first hit creations, Grindin’ had a peculiar sound to it that many listeners gravitated to. Not only did the song fare well on the hip hop charts but it also made a dent in the top 40 charts hitting #30 on the Billboard Hot 100. Grindin’ became one of the biggest hits of 2002 as well as the beginning for a long list of hits for producers The Neptunes creating hits for Justin Timberlake, Pharrell and Snoop Dogg. The group later disbanded in 2010 after a few more albums with both No Malice and Pusha T going for a solo career. No Malice didn’t do as well but Pusha T garnered a few hits his biggest hit being Mercy in 2012. Both members are still releasing music on their own and both have stated there will be no reunion anytime soon.
