As much as I love to hate Pitchfork, the truth of the matter is that they normally jock everything Clipse puts out (for good reason...they're sick). I haven't heard this latest mixtape, but it's probably the first one that Pitchfork has trashed. One bad review, a handful of awesome ones... there's really no need for the sour grapes.

The guy from Pitchfork is a moron, Play Clothes does not have one of the worst logos in hip hop/street wear clothing ever. Look at some of the shit rappers have put out there. Granted, I have yet to see it in person but from what I've seen and read it looks like a more high quality brand. I'm glad that Clipse called them out.

I can't wait for the new album next year. And I still need to download that damn mixtape.

Neither side made any real controversial statement. Pointless.

They got a 7.4, by pitchfork standards, that's a good review.

Weezer's Make Believe got a 0.6.

ill be first to admit pitchfork gives some great albums some shit reviews, but did anyone actually read the review of this album. everything but ONE paragraph was praising the album. the one paragraph just said that this album wasn't as amazing as their other releases (which they gave a fucking 9.1!). When pitchfork, which can give some of the harshest (and most flawed) reviews gives your mixtape a 7.6, what is there to be pissed about?

On a side note, this is a solid mixtape. Clipse could turn Mmmbop into a song about coke and make it awesome.
