Before Pusha T and No Malice embarked on solo careers, the Virginia-bred brothers were once known as rap’s most formidable duo, The Clipse. Despite splitting after the release of their 2009 album Til the Casket Drops, the tandem may reunite for a possible reunion, according to a new interview with GQ.
“Beyond a shadow of a doubt, I know we can do it,” said No Malice after being asked if he and Pusha would be up for creating another album. Pusha concurred in a separate sit-down with the reporter. “It would be an amazing album,” he added. “We could totally conquer the world.”
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of their sophomore effort Hell Hath No Fury, Pusha T and No Malice also touched on their creative process for the 2006 opus, and on being solo artists.
“This is not where I envisioned myself, not where I wanted it to go,” Pusha said. “I came into this game with my brother and my best friend and that’s it, and now, I’m making music with good friends, but not the people I came in with. I’m not with my brother. Every aspect of what I love about this has been yanked away in some way shape or form…. I don’t have the fun of, like, really making music with like my best friends, who live up the street from me.”
The once-inseparable duo ventured in different directions, with Pusha pushing out solo albums (2013’s My Name Is My Name and 2015’s Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude) and serving as president of Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint, while No Malice released a book and a 2013 solo album titled Hear Ye Him.
