Clipse Rapper Separates Reality From Fantasy In Online Video

In what can arguably be considered a hip-hop public service announcement, Malice – one half of the Virgina rap duo Clipse – put out a short video on his newly launched blog to address his real life versus the drug-dealing life he rhymes about.

As previously reported Anthony “Geezy” Gonzalez, an associate of the Clipse,  was recently indicted for running a $10 million drug ring in Virgina Beach.

Without specifically mentioning the situation, Malice released a Vlog speaking about how his rap verses are more fantasy than reality. “There’s a lot of foolishness in hip-hop as my grandmother would say,” he said. “And I just want to say that I am and have been a part of the problem, the thing about it is I need foolishness in my hip-hop, I need foolishness in my movies. I happen to like that. To me a movie is not good unless you got some bricks being moved or a few people get killed.” [Watch Below]

“I guess basically what I’m saying is when I get in that booth and I start recording I can drive as many Bentleys as I want,” he continued. “I can hop on as many G5’s or drop as many tops as I want.“ Later contrasting that image with his real car, an SUV that he notes, doesn’t even have “rims.”

A rep for the group told XXLMag.com that the video was shot prior to Tuesday’s (April 28) report revealing the drug scandal. – Elan Mancini

  • Rex Banner

    NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    but like the first comment said, I will still bump their shit. it is too hot not to bump. hello new world, one of my favorite songs of all time off one of my favorite albums of all time. stop all this blogging shit and make a video for kinda like a big deal then drop the album SOON!!!!!!!!

  • DETROIT

    THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL DAMAGE CONTROL PEOPLE! he doesn’t want to be the next one indicted, and he definately doesn’t want his music to be used against him in a court of law. THIS POINT OF THIS VIDEO WAS TO COVER HIS ASS!

    his mans is facin hella time, and he wants no parts of it!

    i know that all rappers fabricate, and some flat out lie. BUT, this video is enough to convince me that these niggas were actually movin work! that and the fact that their mans regularly gets bricks of powwow!

    • Barry Washington

      Was going to say the same thing. (Even though we ain’t got a clue as to what these dudes is really doin’ in their lives, I’m pretty positive this was an attempt to cover their asses.)

    • jburgy

      Exactly what I am saying. He trying to play it cool cause he knows the feds are watching!!! Smart move if you ask me!!

    • that nigga

      @ Detroit…Exactly.

    • Mo

      I agree with DETROIT…lol this clown is shook as hell. Of Course he had to do with the drug ring from his former manager…if you don’t believe that then you believe that Rick James died of natural causes.

  • FlapJack

    That’s a good look for when the feds come knocking.

    Appreciate the moral tho

  • http://xxl All Dae

    lol…I still think hell hath no fury is classic material. not cause the masses think so but cause I heard it.

    thanks jackass but we know rappers exagerate.

  • PARIS PERSHUN

    I CAN FEEL A PLEA DEAL COMIN FOR BOTHEM NIGGAS…. HOPE THEY DONT GET ON NO SNITCH AND POINTIN SHIT LIKE MY NIGGA CLIFFORD HARRIS…. THEY SHOULD BE GOOD THO… WORD TO JOHNNY COCHRAN….

    (LEANS BACK AND TURNS “KEYS OPEN DOORS” WAY WAY WAY THE FUCK UP….))

  • AZ40

    Co-sign Detroit…Them niggas don’t want muthafuckas lookin’ too hard at them so he gon’ say yeah we be makin’ shit up

  • suplex

    That’s one of the smartest things he could have done whether it’s true or not. Maybe he has real money from the game but he’s publicly denied it or maybe they really fabricated most of their rhymes. All the same, showing an old shape X5 with stock rims was a good look.

  • PARIS PERSHUN

    BUT BY YOU SAYIN THEY JUST SAYIN THEY LIE TO KEEP THEM LAWS OFF EM’ ITS LIKE YOU SAYIN YOU BELIVE EVERYTHING THEY SAYIN!!!! I MEAN THEM NIGGAS DONT BE HAVIN BACK TO BACK ALBUMS. THEY RECORD DEALS DONT REALLY BE BOUT SHIT (THEY SAID BEFORE)… THEY ALWAYS ON THESE HIATUSES…. I’M SURE THEY DONE DID SOME SHIT BUT DAMN…. HAVE SOME DOUBT

  • Zulu1925

    If The Clipse REALLY chronicled activities that actually happended on their records, not only are they unbelievably stupid and/or naive, but what they did is tantamount to dry snitching. So, the Feds only need to decipher the info on the songs to help solidify the cases against them and their “associates.”

    • REALIST

      they cannot use their raps against them. It’s impossible to decipher the truth from the tails. (reasonable doubt).

      • Zulu1925

        If that were true, The Clipse wouldn’t have felt the need to label their music as fictional accounts. If nothing else, this acknowledges the POSSIBILITY of involvement – hence the need to clarify.

  • Understand

    Oh yeaaaahhh. Nice move Malice. Tryin’ to cover your arse now that your point-man has been nicked by the Federales. And it’s perfect timing too [no sooner than him getting picked up and you had this video out, plus the blatant phony excuse that this was recorded way before anything. Quick question though: “what is/was your motivation for wanting to put out such an awareness video at this time”….not to mention the damage it could cost your upcoming album sales??? You are not fooling me dude!!! U know U whip that shit and U sell them bricks.

  • untouchpuertorocNYC

    FUCK THE CLIPSE NOW, THEY ON THE SAME LEVEL AS OFFICER PIG ROSSIFER!!!!

    LIKE BIG ONCE STATED, “REAL GANGSTAS MOVE IN SILENCE”! THE HIP HOP GAME TURNED INTO WWE!

    • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

      Possibly a clear cut case of “too little, too late”.

      If the feds are already on to them, like it appears they are, then all the PSA’s & “We love the children” vlogs in the world ain’t going to stop a prosecutor.

      Good luck, fellas.

      Assuming, of course, that they did what they claimed. But, if it were all just exaggeration for the sake of rap music, why feel a need to CYA (cover ya ass)?

      • squadwildin

        They connect man probly has more money than T.I. So if T.I. got the best lawyer money could buy to get him that reduced sentence, Clipse and they connect shouldnt have no problem beatin this case. The Feds dont have proof is what the speculation is.

    • Detroit Jock

      untouchpuertorocNYC, you sound like an idiot. Like Detroit said, that was damage control, do what you gotta do to stay out. Who want to be hard in prison? That was one of the smartest things in hip hop, even though them dry snitching in every song was not.

  • fireforreal

    Now there saying they rap fiction to stop any possible investigation ? I see what there doing lol !

  • http://www.ronmexicocity.com Ron Mexico

    this is why malice is my favorite clip.

    is clip the singular for clipse? eclipse?

  • PHARO

    He’s trying to fool people

    Malice lying he has a Porsche too, same porsche he had for bout 3 yrs or so, that’s the only car he talks about and there’s clips of videos of him in it.

    They’re going to Jail… they better start recording lots of work so we can download it after they get locked up.

    He knows his going to jail becoz… he says

    “When the music stops along with all the killing & dealing, what good is it when you’re not around to enjoy your success”

    That has nothing to do with fake rhymes in hip hop… this negro going to jail his lawyers be like “You”re done son”

  • that nigga

    This nigga just told on himself…..Now I believe even more of what they rap about and I dont believe shit rappers say 98% of the time.

  • Detroit Draper

    The Clipse really sold cane….just a psa trying to cool down some of the heat. I’m sure all my Detroit peeps know that in the D damn near everyone has or still is sellin dope or guns or robbin’ people…Its no big deal as far as somethin to really brag about. Shit I just stopped side hustlin cus I have a good job now that pays well but if times get hard or I come into enough $ to make it worth it I’m right back at it lol and Im pretty sure the hoods in Va are the same. They have little to no mainstream success…So wonder how they make it in between the rediculous time it takes them to release another classic that underperforms???? Keys open doors.

  • $ykotic

    *corny ass opera music*

    “And that, was one to grow on.”

    You can smell them feds, huh?

    (Looking for PARIS PERSHUN to dub them CD’s…)

  • Rex Banner

    hey if you think about it, a lot of rappers be dry snitching on themselves. jay-z talked about going to maryland for drugs, ross said he was “asked” to take the CO position by his “team” and “made a couple of moves”, cam’ron is always rapping about ohio and chicago and always shouts out their cities. even in get it in ohio he says he was selling drugs there. i think it would be funny if the feds took everything these rappers say seriously and throws them all in jail.

    but you can call me a clipse stan if you want, but I will be truly heartbroken if these two end up getting locked up. i normally dont believe rappers or give a shit if they go to jail or not, but the clipse oh god no, i hope they stay free and keep putting out that classic music. send jeezy or jay z to jail, no one cares about them. but no not the clipse, PLEASE!!! i will miss them (no homo!)

  • Rword

    All we need now is for 50cent to come out the closet.

    • that nigga

      HAHAHAAHHA….^^^^And Plies wit a nursing degree?? Not to take anything away from anything he says and or has and still does but that kinda fucks his credibility up wit me. I know niggas need jobs and shit, I would respect a nigga more if he worked at McDonalds or Burger King and made it outta that than a fuckin RN. In the words of 50 scent: He’s an RN….a Regular Nigga!!!

      • squadwildin

        Plies admitted he went to USF discreetly. He said ask niggas in Tampa how I shut it down. The only nigga on campus wit a 100 thou(thousand). Clearly he was sellin drugs while goin to college. And its nothin wrong wit wantin to become and RN. Actually all the “hood niggas” that go to UF i guess you could call them, all have that as they major, mainly cuz its a profession surrounded by women wit good money

  • The_Truth

    ***After I heard Plies graduated with a degree in NURSING. . .I was done.

    I never thought much of him anyway. . .but NURSING?! “GOON?” Why don’t they think this will comeout eventually??

    • jburg

      I didn’t hear that? where you get that from? thats some funny shit.

      • $ykotic

        Yeah that dude is a RN.

        Ain’t nothing wrong with it, just don’t see where “goon” equates in that formula.

        After all, you need clean hands in a hospital.

        • Mr. WindyCity

          I hate plies… I still belive he meant to spell his name PILES and fucked it up on some contract.

          But being an RN is nothing to fuck with… 99% of these niggers on this site and 85% of people in the US wished they made as much as an RN (not to mention moving up through schooling and the system).

          No, I am not a nurse…

          Anyways, the nigger has a backup plan (which he will definitely need) and is something all of you fucks should look in to (new rappers icluded).

          I know too many ( )

          (Fuck You Too)

          (Yoooung Mooooleys Baaabaay)

  • LB

    Detroit Draper…Man g, how you know what them dudes sold bruh? Ya see, I wouldn’t want no corney, square ass dudes knowin what the fuck go down with me and mines, unless they out on the streets with me, and even then, it ain’t like it’s supposed to be put on blast. Half these “fans” of Clipse just wanted to know the bizness so they could either throw judgement at’m and point at the “bad guys” to make themselves feel betta about bein squares or, to keep some gossip goin on like some hoes. On the real g, real recognize real and, if you need proof that somebody is who they say they are, then you got an identity problem.

  • Detroit Draper

    Im not saying I’ve seen them doing some hand to hands or making transactions lol but what I am saying is that drug dealing and other “gangsta” type crimes are done every damn day by many people. I’ve done it all but Im pretty sure if I came out with an album talking about my experiences it would be some nay-sayers. With the new charges placed upon their manager and others what else do u need??? To actually see them indicted?

    • DETROIT

      that’s my point. i’ve argued the same thing! maybe it’s just some detroit shit. up here, damn near everybody gets it in! it’s not abnormal, matter of fact, it’s more abnormal to see a young nigga in the d that doesn’t roll than it is to see one that does!

      also, drugs are like anything else. YOU’RE ONLY AS STRONG AS YOUR CONNECT. if you know a nigga wit birds, you have a jump on the game that many people don’t have, meaning that you can get a more pure product for a cheaper price. it doesn’t mean that you’re “hard” or a killer, it just means you get coke at wholesale, therefore you get it in!

      put it like this, if you knew a nigga that sold 100 inch tvs for $10, you’d be sellin them shits for him…it only makes since.

      • LB

        Detroit…I’m feelin ya G; I’m glad you clarified yourself. It’s just that so many dudes on this site, shit, on the net period be on some lame ass gossip shit, basically demandin that a nigga give up the goods. Like they wanna be included in a life that they know nothin about, but wanna blast someone from their lack of understandin of it. I’m from The Lou and you from the D and we know there is no bitch-type shit, like alot of this show-n-tell, gossip shit that goes on in this forum. A lot of these cats on here be fishin for knowledge, but perpetratin at the same time.

        • Detroit Draper

          I feel you. No love lost bro(no homo) I was just stating that outta anyone their story is pretty believable I just hope they dont get locked up… at least let that til the casket drops drop.

      • Zulu1925

        If everyone in Detroit is selling dope and robbing folks, then who’s buying the dope and who’s getting robbed? And, if everyone is getting money, what’s with all the foreclosures and shit going on up there?

        • squadwildin

          Zulu you got a lot to learn about the streets boy. Niggas come from outta town to buy dope in Detroit. Thats who’s buyin it. Outta town niggas are gettin robbed in Detroit ie Yung Berg.

          Some of ya’ll boys are naiive when it comes to this street shit. Some of ya’ll should just not comment and peep game. You might learn somethin.

          Secondly Zulu, no one said Dope dealers have credit and you cant buy a house with cash, no matter how much you have. You askin to get indicted. It raises a red flag

    • render

      lol its kinda workin against dude that after showin off his rich nigga hoopdie he walks over to the goddamn golf course in his backyard

      I got love for the clipse tho…hope these niggas don’t get locked up

  • Josh

    Does he live in a golf course clubhouse?

  • Chase

    I feel so sorry for you people, when I read these forums I am truly reading shit from the dumbest people on earth.

    Our schools have failed us miserably, or maybe just society in general, but you guys are ridiculously stupid people. It’s so sad.

    Also, A “byrd” does not refer to the pureness of coke, it refers to the amount of coke.

    He also doesn’t have his “own private” golf course in his backyard, his is obviously living in a nice house located in a country club, which is like a rich person development with a big golf course in the middle, everyone who belongs to the country club, obviously including the people who actually live there use the golf course. Not just him.

  • Phoenix Brown

    I am really thinking that all that was not necessary….I like the music…its good to show the real, but the subject matter is the same on every album. Maybe it will be different on this one….On the last album I liked Bitch I’m Trill and Dirty Money the best…but that’s just me.

  • ff1one@yahoo.com

    why is real or fake even still a topic? Especially nowadays. Its music, and what a man or woman does in their personal life is their life. As for snitching…this is one of the most misconcieved things in the black community. T.I. ain’t snitched. When you facing thirty years and don’t take a plea deal let me know. Most of the so called gangsta cop a plea or feeding info to the cops to stay on the streets. If you know the game you gotta know and respect the game and know the many parts involved with the game.

    The nigga is basically tryna cover his ass cuz he know the feds is comin 4 him & Pusha next,smart move Malice. I don’t think dese niggas is actors like officer ricky

  • DoubleClutch95

    I think it was interesting that Pusha was not involved in the video and he the one always doing the video blogs. And why does Malice need his own website now? As a clipse’s fan, I must say something does not add up here. It could be damage control, or just malice building a brand on his own with his new book. Either way, when your former managers is facing 82 counts, including drug trafficking, among other things, & you’ve rapped about coke your whole career, gotta find away to keep the feds off you. Hope it works tho… Still tho I gotta wonder what little brother Pusha has to think about this because I’m sure he did not want Malice to go out and do this.

    Regardless of what happened, our brother Malice said it right, he’s part of the problem. At least he is man enough to admit it. We all have let hip hop slip into the hands of this crafty devil we call record executives. They are part of our destruction, cant you see it? Im from Camden New Jersey, Murder City. Every day three four times a day, another young black or spanish man is shot most of the time killed over nothing. We got to take HIP HOP BACK, put it back in the hands of the conscious black creative minds. The only way to defeat White Supremacy is through Black Excellence. If you wont listen to Minister Farrakhan, well take some lessons from our President. PEACE! 144
