The Clipse’s Malice has confirmed recent talk that he and his brother, Pusha T, are both working on their own solo albums.
Malice says the decision is because there are other aspects of the Clipse fans have not yet seen.
“As most people know, we’re looking into doing our own solo albums,” he confirmed in an interview. “There are different sides to the Clipse. And you know, when we come together as Clipse we have to honor that brand and what the people know us for. Everybody has more than one side, you know what I’m saying? I think I let people in on my spiritual side a lot as of lately. You can go to www.MaliceOfTheClipse.com and check out my video blogs. I have a book coming out as well called Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind, and Naked. My brother and I are going to do solo albums. Ab Liva‘s going to do his solo. We’re going to come back together and do more Clipse albums and just expand as much as we can until the fans get tired of us.” (Brooklyn Bodega)
According to Pusha, solo albums from both he and Malice makes the most sense.
“We got Re-Up Gang Records, so we’re trying to exercise every aspect of putting music out there. The Clipse will definitely be putting more music out. But it only makes sense for us to do solo projects and build a catalog with solo records by ourselves as well as [our artist] Ab Liva…I think I’ve grown with every Clipse album, but there’s an emotional side of Pusha that people need to see. I want people to get a little more in tune with my thought process. A lot of times people hear me and think, ‘Wow! That’s a dope verse!’ but it’s way beyond that with me. I want people to understand who I am and get inside my thought process. I think I can do that with a solo project.” (VIBE)
Pusha recently turned the rumor mill by informally announcing solo projects at a show.
During a concert performance on Friday, April 30, the Clipse — brothers Pusha T and Malice — dropped news that they plan to release solo albums in the next few months. Pusha T took a quick pause between songs to tell the crowd that he and his brother Malice would release separate albums this year. “2010 new Clipse music, new Re-Up Gang music, solo projects by myself, Pusha and Malice,” he said.
