Though the project is complete, The Clipse's Pusha T has revealed their plans to fall back on releasing their 'Til The Casket Drops until the winter holiday.
Speaking in a video, the Virginia-based emcee expressed his confidence in the new album by displaying an advance copy.
"What up, it's your neighborhood pusher, one half of The Clipse, fresh off promo tour, about to go on another run tomorrow," Pusha said. "And look what's waiting for me -- can you see that? You know what that means right? I'm about to go outside and rock my own sh*t like I'm on my own d*ck a la Mase...This [album] right here means that I'm not gonna pack for tomorrow. This means I'm just gonna go down to Atlanta and shop then until I get there 'cause this is gonna have me up all night, 'Til The Casket Drops. December 8th. What's a Clipse album without pushbacks man? F*ck outta here man. [laughs]" (Rap-Up)
Malice recently said their latest effort has allowed them more "freedom" than 2006's Hell Hath No Fury.
"This album is like redemption for me," Malice explained. "We've been through so much with the label, with so much in our lives. Around Hell Hath No Fury, it was just rough times. You could probably hear it in the music. We had a lot of dead weight around us that got cleared out. This time around, everything is freer; we're in a happier place. You can really hear the change in the music. Listen to 'I'm Good.' You can feel it that we're better. Definitely. Hell Hath No Fury is about when it was more raw. This album is more along the lines of Lord Willin'. And you know Hell Hath No Fury is my favorite album." (Complex)
Pusha T recently hit up SOHH to clear up the rumors about Rick Rubin not helping produce tracks on the new album.
"We were just joking about saying he lied to us," Pusha explained. "We drove down to Malibu and Rick is a cool guy, amazing dude. He gave us all the insight in the world. He had a big influence on us and some of the records we kept and some of the records that we got rid of off the album. He sorta, like, solidified our stance in making this album. Actually, he came in and heard everything. We went to him and he heard everything. Outside of that he was just, you know, like 'Listen man, just make sure you love it. Like if you don't love it, don't do it, if you don't love everything. Anything you don't love, do not do, do not put on that album.' He was like 'I don't care, I don't care, I don't care about any of that. If you don't love it, don't do it.'" (SOHH)
Clipse previously said they never received any beats from Rubin despite earlier speculation of the Def Jam co-founder's involvement in their project.
"He lied to us," Clipse jokingly admitted in an interview earlier this summer. "Rick Rubin lied to us. Nah, Rick Rubin ain't produce nothing. He lied to us. We went out to Malibu man, busted out with him. He gave us a lot of insight on the album and gave us some gems man. We came back, sorta re-vamped a few things and uh, you know, made the album a lot better due to that talk, for real. Definitely, it's the reason he's sitting in that [executive] seat." (Karma Loop)
'Til The Casket Drops is slated to hit stores Tuesday, December 8th.
