It’s officially a wrap for one of the most beloved duos in hip-hop, the Clipse. The writing has been on the wall for some time now, beginning with the point where the elder Thornton brother changed his name to No Malice and started making Christian music. But, there was still a glimmer of hope that he and Pusha T would be able to balance out their polarizing views for a new LP. In January, Push even confirmed the album was “coming.” That’s not going to happen, according to No Malice. Not now, not ever. “People have been asking me about this Clipse album. I’ve been very clear and very consistent from the beginning. I don’t know why I have to keep answering this question. I don’t do that music anymore,” the seemingly agitated MC confirmed to RapZilla during SXSW.
He went on to say he feels like doing secular music would be a step back in his life, before closing the door on any hope of a reunion. “Do people want me to keep repeating my past life? What I would like to think is my audience who grew up with me are still growing up. I can’t cater to every generation that comes up under it’s like repeating third grade over and over again. No, I’m somewhere else now. I am not doing another Clipse album.”
