Redfield Clipper presents ‘Beachmaster’
Redfield Clipper‘s purpose is to drastically broaden the parameters, limitations, and compositional integrity of hip-hop music. As pioneers of multimetered rap, couched in semi-ironic critique, we bring jazz artistry to hip-hop. We actively maintain a profound reverence for the roots of hip-hop and a burning desire to push the branches up and out from the comfort of the complacent trunk. We exclusively create outside the box, making it difficult to label our sounds. Please enjoy our latest release, ‘Beachmaster’ – available now on Spotify and Bandcamp.
