Platinum-selling rap duo the Clipse have inked a deal with Rick Rubin at Sony/Columbia Records.
The move cements Columbia’s commitment to a growing urban music roster that includes superstars such as Beyoncé, Wyclef and Three 6 Mafia.
Everything was arranged under the legendary auspices of Rubin, who personally sanctioned the deal.
This time last year, the Clipse complained to anyone who’d listen how unhappy it was on Jive Records then followed a long period without any label.
The bad period is now over and the Clipse are now preparing their next LP.
