Clipping is an American experimental hip hop group formed 2009 in Los Angeles, California, by rapper Daveed Diggs and producers William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes.

Their debut album Midcity was released in 2013 earning positive reviews and comparisons with artists like Death Grips and Dalek. The following year they released CLPPNG to even more favourable reviews. Other outstanding releases include 2016's Splendor & Misery album, the EP Wriggle, and There Existed an Addiction to Blood from 2019. In 2017, the group released a single entitled "The Deep." which was nominated for a Hugo Award. Diggs has also recorded a solo album, and Hutson and Snipes have released several soundtrack works.
