Rumors surfaced earlier this month regarding a new Clipse album coming from No Malice and Pusha T, which would have been their newest since 2009’s Til The Casket Drops. While Pusha seemed to confirm the rumors at first, to only backtrack his statements, No Malice has put the nail on the coffin: there will be no Clipse album.
No Malice told The Fader that in regards to a new Clipse album: “It’s not going down. I don’t know where the rumors stem from. And I don’t know how this keeps coming back up- this isn’t the first time. But I would never play with the fans like that and act like something’s about to happen and it’s not.”
And considering No Malice’s renewed commitment to Christianity, don’t expect a new album anytime soon. “I think the fans want to rekindle that whole entire lifestyle which I no longer live,” said No Malice to Fader. “I don’t condemn or have anything negative to say about anyone, this is just the move I chose to make.”
However, he does try to keep the possiblity of a new Clipse album open, stating of his brother’s readiness and excitement: “I’m very certain that it could happen. A Clipse album could be done,” said No Malice. “There would be nothing like it. … I have heard Pusha express that he really wants to do a Clipse album. He’s ready one hundred percent!”
