G.O.O.D Music’s Pusha T recently discussed his upcoming My Name is My Name solo debut and why it is vital to represent his brother/Clipse sidekick No Malice on the long-awaited project.
In Pusha’s perspective, Malice has always represented the more level-headed and conscious one in the Clipse.
“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)
With fans eagerly awaiting his first shot at solo album success, Pusha said he will now have an opportunity to show Clipse lovers a side of him they may have only noticed with Malice.
Now, without his brother to rely on, Pusha will offer a different side of himself on MNIMN and ultimately deliver more balance. “I feel like I have to take on some of his characteristics, just to ensure that the Clipse fans are satisfied,” he said. “I think my perspective is one to be heard.” (MTV Hive)
Back in December 2011, the Virginia native publicly announced another Clipse project would follow 2009’s 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)
While Pusha puts together his debut for release later this year, No Malice recently talked about what fans could expect from his own solo effort.
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)
