No Malice has repeatedly been asked about a Clipse reunion with his brother, Pusha T. The duo broke up after 2009’s Til The Casket Drops. In a recent interview with MTV, No Malice recalls his mind state making the album.
“I look at this as my album,” No Malice says. “That’s what I wanted to do for me, to get these things off my chest and make my exit… I didn’t think about the fans. I didn’t think about the listener. It was just how I was feeling. People tell me all the time that they can hear a transition on that album. And they really tell me that they heard that transition throughout my entire career of something taking place, but it just finally came to a head on this album.”
He also reflects on where new Clipse music would stand in the current music landscape.
“My brother and I together can make clown soup of all of these rappers,” he says. “That’s what I believe in my heart, but how can two walk together unless they agree?”
The Virginia Beach, Virginia rapper says that he and his brother are in different places in life and he is “not chasing or forcing” a reunion.
“That’s what I love about my brother and our relationship,” he says. “Those morals that my dad instilled in us…We don’t put opinions on each other. We don’t say, ‘Well, you should be doing this.’ We’re like, ‘Whatever you do, homie, we respect each other as men.’”
