Virginia rapper Pusha T may be teamed up with music star Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D. Music these days, however, at a concert this past week he reminded fans of his Clipse loyalty by announcing plans to drop a new joint LP down the road.
Although there are priorities ahead of the album, Pusha said fans could expect a follow-up to Clipse’s 2009 LP, Til the Casket Drops.
Last night at a show hosted by the good folks at Rap Radar, G.O.O.D. Music rapper Pusha T entered to “What Dreams Are Made Of” setting off a blast of energy in NYC’s Gramercy Theater. Push A Ton kicked most of his recent work–a notable exception is the “Sweet Freestyle,” which is thought to be a Drake diss–as well as a few older records. Rocking out to a packed house, Pusha decided to make some announcements towards the end of his set. “2012 G.O.O.D. Music Album…2012 Pusha T Solo Album…2012 New Re-Up Gang Music…2012-2013 New Clipse Album, yeauck,” Push told the packed audience. (Hip Hop Wired)
In May, Malice revealed plans to change his rap alias to reflect his position in life.
“I’m not a malicious person, and I don’t really like answering to that. I know that people that follow The Clipse or follow my music, they know Malice, so I understand that, I get that,” Malice said in an interview. “But you don’t want to be under any moniker that’s of evil intent, that’s not you. I come to more believe that there’s so much power in the tongue. The power of the tongue is life and death, so I believe if you are what you fall under whether it’s in your subconscious or not. It’s just me trying to clean up a little bit. But I haven’t thought of that name yet. So Malicious is what it is right now.” (Ruby Hornet TV)
Pusha previously hit up SOHH and explained the difference between his solo G.O.O.D. Music work and joint Clipse tracks.
“The way I want to put out my solo album, those ideas are definitely taking form right now,” Pusha told SOHH. “It’s just that I want the world to understand that in The Clipse, well, I look at it like this. A lot of people understand the dichotomy with Pusha being more brash, the more wordplay-type one. And then you have my brother, Malice, being the more introspective and more conscious-driven. And it’s not that I don’t think like that, it’s just the fact that we play roles in our group. And we’re d*mn good at that. And I’m d*mn good at this. And it’s not that I don’t have those views, I think I just want the world to get a full 360-degree perspective of myself, my opinions and my mind.” (SOHH)
In December 2009, Clipse’s Til the Casket Drops debuted in the Top 50.
The Clipse even things out in Top 50 as Til the Casket Drops debuts at No. 46. With a week in the books, the duo’s third group project has moved 31,500 records. (SOHH Sales Wrap)
