Earlier this week, we reported that Pusha T gave an update on the current status of the Clipse, while revealing that he was ready to record a new Clipse album, and that Kanye West and Pharrell have been pushing for a new album from the Va. duo. But Push revealed that his brother, No Malice, didn’t feel that it was the right time to drop a new album as he is really on his mission right now. Now, No Malice explains what’s holding him back from recording a Clipse reunion album.

During a recent interview with XXL, No Malice spoke on what’s holding him back from reuniting with his brother, Pusha T, for a Clipse reunion album.

No Malice explains:

“I believe my brother and I…we can get together and pull off anything. 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.”

He added:

“If you’re not growing, you’re dead. Clipse came in 2002 bro…to me, [rapping is now] a hobby and fun, and I get to wash the blood off my hands.”

To add, at the time of Pusha T’s interview, he revealed that No Malice turned down multiple opportunity’s to perform with him. And now, during his interview with XXL, No Malice said that he’s not comfortable performing old Clipse records as he wants to focus on the positive, so he won’t have to apologize.

We may not get a Clipse album like we would in 2002, but maybe No Malice will go for Pharrell’s idea to release a two-sided, Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, type album where Pusha can do his thing and No Malice can do his. Only time will tell.
