The Clipse’s Pusha T is only adding more fuel to the anticipation of a reunion project alongside No Malice after promising a collaborative is coming together.
Although brief with his confirmation, Pusha resorted to Facebook to ante up the hype.
“It’s coming… http://bit.ly/1cJ56U2,” Pusha posted onto Facebook January 10 with a photo of himself and No Malice along with a link to an article about a Clipse reunion. (Pusha T’s Facebook)
Recently, No Malice revealed he was behind a Clipse reunion but only under his terms.
“My brother and I, we are taking two different approaches to music. I’m very proud of the Clipse catalog and I really enjoyed that music but most of all, it’s made me who I am today. That’s not the kind of music that I’m doing,” No Malice explained in an interview. “I still hold out hope for a Clipse reunion. I really believe that we will be able to do it, but any music that I make is totally 100 percent going to glorify God. That’s what I do. That’s what I’m about. Like I said, I’m still holding out hope that can happen.” (Pow TV Rap Show)
While information is very limited as of now, reports this week claimed a follow-up to 2009’s Til the Casket Drops was in the works.
Pusha T made news recently after posting pictures of The Neptunes in the studio to Instagram, sparking speculation of a soon-to-come sophomore album. However, it has been confirmed that the photos are evidence of the Clipse-comprised of brothers Pusha T and No Malice-hard at work on an untitled independent project, ending a three-year hiatus. (The hip-hop duo hasn’t released an album since 2009?s Til the Casket Drops.) Both MCs have since gone on to work on solo projects for the time being, but it looks as if they’re coming back together for a much-anticipated LP with the help of Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo.

No Malice recently said his newfound religion and way of living had him less concerned about Clipse-related opportunities.
No Malice admits that he doesn’t feel comfortable even performing Clipse’s old songs anymore, which is partly why he’s turned down multiple chances to perform as a group in recent months. If the duo were to make a new album, which both superstar producers Kanye West and Pharrell have advocated for, then something would have to change, he said. “I believe my brother and I… we can get together and pull off anything,” he said. “But as far as my beliefs and as far as me facilitating anything that brings death, destruction and demise, I’m not going to do that.
