clipse pusha t no malice

Pusha T and Malice are back! Earlier this year Pusha T made headlines when he started a 20-day recording session with longtime collaborators The Neptunes. Once the images started surfacing, folks (including myself) immediately figured it was for Pusha’s next solo offering. Turns out, the session is actually for both Pusha T and No Malice. According to KC, the two are hard at work on an independent Clipse album. Dope!

    Definitely gonna be interesting to hear Pusha and Malice together in 2014.

    In honor of this, I’m playing Lord Willin and Hell Hath No Fury for the rest of the night

    Oh shit… First! Hell hath no Fury: Part 2

  • Wow….everyone was making it seem like Malice wasnt for the idea….great news imo

  • datbul

    If No Malice sticks to his new-found (spiritual) convictions and, thus, creates a notable contrast between his and Pusha’s lyrical subject matter, this could actually be the album where the Clipse give us something they’ve never truly given us before: Depth.

    I’ll be staying tuned.

      Could be contradictory tho. Push talking about dealing coke and the whole “I’m saved, I don’t sell coke no more” talk from Mal. We’ll have to see.

      • datbul

        It being contradictory was my whole point. If they both rap about their respective life views and there’s contrast… that will create the Depth.

    • Ace

      they’ve never given us depth? they put out “Nightmares” while other rappers only talked about the pros of dealing. & that’s just one example. Listen better

      • datbul

        1) Depth throughout an entire ALBUM (not just a song here and there)
        2) Depth meaning maybe– just maybe– something BESIDES cocaine (imagine that!). Even when you mentioned their so called ‘depth’ you couldn’t provide an example outside of drug dealing rap.
        3) Think better.

    • Enjoyer of Music

      On one hand I agree with you, they’ve never really given us a deep and meaningful album.

      On the other hand I’m not so sure, how deep can coke rap be?. They’ve had songs with depth that do offer that contrast I think you’re looking for (foots steps, freedom, life change, just to name a few from their last LP alone). If you listen carefully Malice has always been that kind of conflicted soul when it came to rapping about drugs (“The coke that I push is as pure as a child’s heart”) and when you read his book it makes sense why their albums sound the way they do…the way he got into drug dealing vs. pusha

      Also, I don’t think this will be as great as I want it to be. I was listening to No Malice’s solo the other day and I’m sorry to say it, but some of it was flabby and sick. weak. Pusha has done everything but regress lyrically so I don’t want to hear 45 minutes of Pusha outrapping Malice about selling coke while Malice struggles to keep up. I hope I’m wrong though.

      Now what I think they need to do (and I’m going to get hated on for this), is get away from the Netunes, try something new to go with the darker tone of their content. I personally would love to hear the Clipse on some Blue Sky Black Death production, but hey to each their own.

    Man this is fuckin great news! I still listen to the clipse on a regular basis, this is gonna be dope!

  • wat

    Amazing news. Not just that the Clipse are reuniting, but they’re reuniting with The Neptunes! There’s rarely chemistry THAT good in hiphop.

  • 2dope4nope


  • cam

    My second favorite rap duo ever after Outkast. Pusha T is the best rapper alive! I cannot wait for this album to drop!

  • Exhibit C

    I can’t tell you how much I love their music but No Malice’s recent releases have all been wack to me. Not even because of the religious themes. He was on that “i’m saved” stuff to an extent on Till the Casket Drops and a lot of that album was dope. I just haven’t been feeling any of his recent releases but hopefully this album changes that.

  • you know this gonna be dope 2sides of the story yes cosign @datbul:disqus

    Common and Clipse albums in 2014? Cannot wait
