Genre-defying alternative hip-hop trio, RDGLDGRN, made their triumphant return today with the release of “Clapback” – the first single from the band’s just announced new full-length, LP3. “Clapback” is a steady injection of sonic adrenaline that unfolds over Rage Against The Machine-inspired guitars and a driving combination of percussion and bass. The hypnotic repetition of the refrain and Green’s aggressive delivery of top-level bars bring a level of focus to the chaotic, yet meticulously arranged, soundscape creating a single that is tailor-made for your next workout playlist or any other situation when you need that punch-in-the-face motivation to dig out that extra mile or overcome a hurdle in your life. The video finds our three favorite colors (Red, Gold and Green) in search of a new nemesis, the Blue Ninja. The narrative sets the tone for a new adventure that the band will undertake during the course of LP3’s release. You can watch the official video now on YouTube and stream the song on most of your other favorite download platforms.

Quote from Green About “Clapback”:
Referencing things like power rangers, Beastie Boys, and alt 90s culture in general we wanted to make a video that is an extension of our personalities…we just like having fun and put on the homies.
