Pusha Men 

Clipse at the Independent.

Compared to, say, New York, Houston, or Oakland, Virginia isn't exactly known as a hotbed of hip-hop talent, yet Virginia Beach duo Clipse is easily one of the hottest groups in the urban rhymeosphere. Childhood friends of fellow Virginian Pharrell Williams, Malice and Pusha T benefited from the multiplatinum producer's tracks on 2002's Lord Willin', which spawned "Grindin'," the pro-dope dealin' anthem (and certifiable guilty pleasure. Their sophomore release, 2006's Hell Hath No Fury, proved that while the two rappers may not be politically correct — or have any redeeming social significance, for that matter — they get ill on the mic, with sick-ass flows for days. If you like your hip-hop raw, edgy, and bassy, and don't take issue with overt cocaine references, that's all that matters. See them live this Thursday at the Independent with Pacific Division. 9 p.m., $25. TheIndependentSF.com
