Pusha T And No Malice Announce Clipse Reunion Album, First In 15 Years

Pusha T and No Malice have announced plans to reunite as Clipse and release a reunion album, their first in nearly 15 years.

In a recent interview with Vulture, the duo broke the news of their forthcoming body of work, which Pusha T believes will showcase their “supreme maturation” as a pairing. “I think this is where you get the difference between taste and filler,” the Virginia Beach rep said of the album, which is currently devoid of a title or release date.

“This music is curated. This is a high taste-level piece of work. You can only have that level of taste when you have the fundamentals down to a science. I think it’s been definitely missing. Then there’s the competitive aspect.”

According to No Malice, the project finds the brothers reverting back to their roots, embracing the formative aspects of their artistry that initially brought them to prominence during the early ’00s. “This is smart basketball,” Malice said of his and Pusha T’s creative approach.

“It’s fundamentals. And not only that, it’s authenticity. It’s what rap should look like if you’re real about your craft, real about your experience, real about your storytelling. It’s bringing the fans along to see the growth, not trying to fit in or fabricate.”

The veteran lyricist continued, lamenting the artistic restraints Hip-Hop acts are often subjected to while crediting himself and his groupmate with their ability to break beyond that barrier.

“It just seems like in other genres of music, they have the luxury of growing. For some reason, we act like we’re not supposed to evolve. This is what the true evolution of the Clipse looks like. It’s just good to be able to show that and still have high-level raps.”

News of the Clipse’s looming album follows the release of the group’s latest single, “Birds Don’t Sing” featuring John Legend, which premiered during Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer Fashion Show in Paris on Tuesday (June 18).

One year ago, the Clipse appeared as models during Pharrell Williams‘ debut Louis Vuitton fashion show in Paris, where they also debuted a new song that spurred further clamoring for No Malice and Pusha T to rejoin forces.
