Previous / NextShift + → 1 of 11

If you’ve spent time cruising around the music blogosphere in the last year or so, you’ve probably become acquainted with the fact that Clams Casino no longer solely stands for a recipe that requires bacon and cheese. Ascendant 24-year-old Mike Volpe—better known by his culinarily inspired pseudonym, Clams Casino—has struck a chord with listeners through only a few dozen tracks, a series of immediately recognizable productions scattered across mixtapes, albums, YouTube pages, and tweets, forming both a succinct canon and a pillar of the cloud rap subgenre.

This list is a primer on 10 of Clams’ most defining, quality beats during his rise from YouTube mainstay to paid major label remixer and beyond—a point of entry for new listeners and a review of some highlights for those already familiar. Here is our list of 10 Best Clams Casinos Beats.
