Shawn Lee & Clutchy Hopkins - Clutch of the Tiger

*grizzly looking elderly man

Shawn Lee & Clutchy Hopkins are underground favorites in hip-hop circles, if not for the anonymity of Clutchy Hopkins alone, whose identity has manifested into pictures of a grizzly looking elderly man*

Many believe he's the secret identity of another established producer, such as DJ Shadow or Madlib. Others think he's just another identity of Shawn Lee. Regardless of all that, the duo crafted a tight jazz/hip-hop/funk album called '
Clutch of the Tiger', a musical muscle-relexant that smoothly ebbs track to track.

Tiger masks and grizzly-dudes aside, the music is no gimmick. Don't sleep.
