Dankside Entertainment boss B-Blacc is steadily getting heads ready for his new album, Blacc the Ripper, due out this summer. The first single, "Clap," has been making its way around the internet and this week, Blacc dropped the video. Taking on the persona of his "Blacc the Ripper" character, the rapper gets possessed and commences to slashing his competition -- literally. The upcoming album features appearances from Nyke Nitti, 800 the Jewell, Karma, Alison Wright, Rie Rie, King James, Vonny Loc and Lil Trouble, with production handled by Blacc and Mo Heat, as well as contributions from Monsta Mike, Young Doe, Savier, Triple Dubb, Gene Robinson and Ritchi Porter. Check out the video after the jump.
