Dude, Clutchy Hopkins is DOPE. Perfect grooves for jazzy hiphop. What a weird backstory, too! I suspect he might actually be RJD2, but I like Clutchy's stuff better than "The Third Hand".

I'm trying to collect some information on who Clutchy really is. If you have any info about this cat, check out my site at and drop me a line. The truth is out there!!!
