Days after G.O.O.D. Music’s Pusha T revealed his brother’s disinterest in making bank and getting a Clipse reunion going, No Malice has come forward to clear the air.

No Malice said his newfound religion and way of living has 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.

Recently, Pusha admitted he embraced his G.O.O.D. Music team and realized No Malice was not ready for a reunion.

“Yeah, I’m not running with my brother right now. I would much rather be in a group now. I know my brother is in a very spiritual place. His belief is strong and he love where he is, but I’m his younger brother and I am selfish. I don’t know if I want my brother to not be with me right now. When you ask me if I’m angry or where does this edge come from, I have a lotta thoughts in my mind when I’m rhyming or when I hit the stage or when I’m talking about music. Music is not all happy to me. It hasn’t been the greatest in every aspect. I could easily sit here and be like, “I take care of my family and I drive Benz’s and do what I wanna do.” But we’d been doing things like that and I don’t need music to do that. It’s a little more personal with me. I think that personal side comes out as anger in my music.” (Murder Dog)

Days prior, Pusha said there were no amount of pitches or suggestions he could make to convince No Malice to get back into Clipse mode.

“Man, I would really love to,” Pusha said when asked about a reunion project. “My brother is really on his mission right now. Listen, listen to how real this is. Listen to how real it is though. We had the 10th anniversary of Lord Willin’. 30 dates, needless to say, high dollar. High dollar, already done. Two weeks before it was time to go, my brother was like, ‘Nah, I don’t want to do it. I’m off that, I’m on my mission right now.’ You know, it’s about [his album] Hear Ye Him, it’s abotu where he is spiritually and he was like, ‘Nah, I’m not going to do it. Just go ahead.’ I asked him, now I had to do Coachella, 70,000, right? I’m like, ‘Yo, I’d love to bring you out.’ And he was like, all right, what song do you want to do?’ You know me, I want to do, ‘Keys Open Doors’ — he’s like, ‘Nah, I don’t really, I’m not really feeling that.'” (BBC Radio 1)

The Virginia native also said mega producers Pharrell Williams and Kanye West were both interested in getting a joint project rolling.

On top of those scenarios I already gave you, you got Pharrell saying, ‘Hey, when y’all ready, let’s go.’ And I think we should just do a two-sided, you know, the tale of two stories. He was like, ‘You do what you do, he do what he do, and that’s what you do.’ Kanye’s like, ‘I want to executive produce this but if you want Pharrell to do the whole thing, that’s fine, if not, I’ll just be here too.’ And he’s like, ‘Not right now.’ [laughs] Mind you, this is the same person I talk to every other morning about my mom, nephews, nieces – you know, hey, where you at? … I don’t think it’s anything holding him back, he just put out Hear Ye Him, a gospel album. I just feel like that’s where he is. My brother, his spirituality right now is next level. … There’s things going on in life that are pushing him in that direction.” (BBC Radio 1)
