So who wants two free tickets to see the Clipse at the Jefferson Theater on Saturday?
Acclaimed Virginia Beach rap duo The Clipse will roll through town on Saturday for a concert at the Jefferson Theater, and we've got your free tickets right here. But why has this taken so freaking long? The Virginia Beach area has been an odd little nexus for mainstream hip hop for a decade or more now – in addition to these guys, you've got Missy Elliott, The Neptunes/N.E.R.D., Timbaland and his protégé Danja, and more recently Waka Flocka Flame's favorite producer Lex Luger. And yet the only one of the bunch who has paid any attention to Charlottesville is Skillz, who performed at the late iS Venue in January 2009. Leave us a couple thoughts on what exactly might be in the water out there and/or why these folks have been so uninterested in hanging out just down the road in Charlottesville, and on Friday we'll hook someone up with a pair of tickets. Finally!
