Word from our "guy" down in Pioneer Square is that eight balls are currently at a premium. But if anyone's gonna level the field, it's Clipse—the pair of Virginia Beach brothers who rode around shining with last year's coke-rap chronicle Hell Hath No Fury. The album is a hustler's-eye view of the financial rewards and ethical anxieties of dealing powder in the inner city, set to the Neptunes' sinister, swerving soundtrack. Word is that Clipse rise above the hype as performers. With Cool Nutz, Dime Def, and J-Mar. (Chop Suey, 1325 E Madison St, 324-8000. 8 pm, $18, 21+.)
