Pusha T of The Clipse, and brother of No Malice recently interviewed on BBC Radio 1 with Zane Lowe to talk about his latest album 'My Name is My Name'. Zane and Pusha start talking about The Clipse doing another album. Here are some interesting points that Pusha made on where No Malice is with regard to that...
“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.’”
“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.”
