Music producer Pharrell Williams may have been busy helping piece together Jay-Z's upcoming Magna Carta Holy Grain album but he's ready and willing to contribute to a potential The Clipse reunion album.
Despite both No Malice and Pusha T busy with their own solo ventures, Pharrell said he is confident the duo will reunite for at least one more full-length Clipse project.
"Oh they will," Pharrell told MTV News matter-of-factly, when asked if he thought a Clipse album is on the horizon, going on to explain what his role in the project might be. "I'm gonna have to find an untapped zone and just present something different that people haven't felt before. ... I don't know what the sounds would sound like, or what the vibes would be, but at that moment the arrow will present itself to me and I'll just listen and follow it." (MTV)
Back in April, Pusha announced the latest release date change for his long-awaited solo album debut.

A month prior, he detailed what fans could expect from his first official studio release.
"I think that My Name is My Name is definitely going to highlight just my perspective and my thought process," Pusha told MTV Hive while on the carpet for mtvU's 2013 Woodie Awards, where he performed last week in SXSW. "Being in a group, I think Malice always took the role as the conscious MC and more like the voice of reason and I was always the brash, more witty, slick talker type." (MTV Hive)
Last summer, No Malice broke down what would make up his solo effort's content.
He hopes his solo album, Hear Ye Him, sheds more light. "The first song from that project is entitled 'June,'" No Malice told XXL at the All Access Music Conference in New York City's Webster Hall, where he was signing autographs in support of his Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind And Naked book that he dropped last year. "The video just came out, so ya'll check for the video. And my second single, 'Unforgettable,' is also out. My next single is, 'Bow Down No More' and it's featuring Bun B." "I'm just trying to bring awareness to what I got going on," he said. "Just trying to do my thing right now. I can't look left or right...focused." (XXL Mag)
