Clipse are slated to reunite for a rare headlining set later this year at Hyde Park Summerfest in Chicago’s Midway Plaisance Park.
Tickets for the June 17 and June 18 festival are now available here. Alongside Clipse’s comeback, fans can expect performances from 2 Chainz, Tobe Nwigwe, Robert Glasper, Uncle Waffles, Jonathan McReynolds and Terry Hunter.
There will also be a star-studded medley performance celebrating 50 years of Hip Hop with appearances by Chicago natives like Vic Mensa, Twista, Shawnna, Do Or Die, Crucial Conflict and more to be announced at a later date.
Pusha T and No Malice reunited last year to surprise fans with a “Grindin’” performance at the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards. Prior to that, the Thornton brothers came together on stage for the first time in over a decade at close friend Pharrell’s Something In The Water festival in Washington, D.C. in June.
During Skateboard P’s headlining “Pharrell & Phriends” set — which also boasted cameos from T.I. and N.O.R.E. — the Clipse produced one of the highlights of the entire three-day festival by hitting the stage to perform “Like I Love You” with fellow special guest Justin Timberlake.
The Virginia Beach duo stuck around and dusted off fan-favorite cuts from their own catalog including “Mr. Me Too,” “Cot Damn” and “Grindin’.”
The last Clipse album was 2009’s Til the Casket Drops. Their third and final studio album followed on from 2002’s Lord Willin’ and 2006’s Hell Hath No Fury, both of which were produced by The Neptunes. Neither are closing the door on the idea of a reunion album either, which they briefly hinted at while speaking at ComplexCon in November.
Meanwhile, Tyler, The Creator also celebrated 2006’s Hell Hath No Fury turning 16 last year and he gave the duo their flowers for the vast impact the LP had on him creatively.
“Important. Life for me is before and after i seen this video in 06,” Tyler wrote alongside a clip from Clipse’s signature “Mr. Me Too” video. “NOTHING compares. when i heard it i told myself this would be the first song i play in every car i get and i havent broken that.”
