Malice, one-half of Virginia coke-rap duo Clipse, has made the ultimate sacrifice to showcase his newfound outspokenness about religion: he has officially changed his name to "No Malice."
On Tuesday (Mar. 6), the rapper (real name: Gene Thornton) posted on Twitter, "R.I.P. "Malice" 8/20/2002 - 3/6/2012," and linked to a video that shows him entering a funeral parlor in a dress shirt and bow tie, staring down at himself in a casket (wearing a hooded sweatshirt), shaking his head and walking away. His Twitter handle now reads @NoMalice757, and his Twitter name stands as, "aka Yes My Lord."
